Bobby and Rosie. I became Ms. B. to everyone on the job. We had to wear FRs, hard hats, safety vests, safety glasses and steel toes boots (mine are pink and too big for me). We started the job in September, when the weather was nice and warm, and went on through the winter. I forgot what the country looked like because we went to work in the dark and went home in the dark. This was a totally new experience for me, since I have always been in education or some type, but I am glad I did it and it was especially fun working with Bobby, who I have been married to for 42 years.
