Each night when we closed the stall we had trouble getting the gate down. We had to use our weight and ride the gate.
The first time Joe (my future husband) saw this production, he oiled the gate. Voila!
Dad was totally amazed. This was one of the many reasons Dad respected Joe. I'm sure he was sorry for his first comment to me about him being "all nose".
While dating Joe I decided to try to get a job away from the market. I went for an interview at Sears and Roebuck. When they phoned to ask if I wanted a job, I hesitated, Barbara was next to me saying, " Take it , take it". Soon after that I said goodbye to the Pike Place Market.
