What Else She Said

And [my grandmother] was an inspiration to me, too. I must not forget her. Because my aunt did a lot of traveling and had no children, so my grandmother lived in her house and had a Polish maid and when I would go there to visit, she'd talk in Polish to this maid and in English to me and in Yiddish to somebody else, and then she'd take me out in her garden, and she was growing beets.

And she lived in Beechmont and she was going down to the ocean at six o┐clock in the morning to swim! And she maintained into her old age the support of the rabbi there and had raffles going and all kinds of things. There were a lot of people who inspired me, I think.
