Ruby lives next-door in Nashville. She has been living there for thirty years or more. I’m not completely sure about the length of time because she talks about past events as if they just happened. She will often use the word “several” as in several years ago. I always thought the word “several” meant two or three. I finally asked Ruby what “several” years meant to her and she said "oh ‘bout fifty or sixty years ago.” All these things sound like they happened yesterday actually occurred years and years ago.
