(Phil:)More than 30 years ago I sat in a living room in Chicago trying to collect taxes from a widowed New Orleans belle who confessed, "I was raised to be a lady. I can't do anything to support myself, and since my husband died and left me penniless I have to rely on my son."
She sounds like a couple of characters out of Tennessee Williams.
Did she have an odd collection of crystal animals sitting around?
