The whole subject was new to them-and enlightening. They found out what taxes meant and what the taxpayer gets for his money. We finally voted for the new house, and I was given a month to solve the maid problem.
I found a high school girl who, for room and board, would wash dishes, prepare vegetables, and serve the evening meal. A woman came in once a week to do the heavy cleaning.

Often the sessions were acrimonious, but we learned to cultivate a temperate, detached point of view.
