Ruby: I wanted to come. Didn't seem like there was nuthin' back there for us. But now with three kids and all, I don't know.

My husband he looks for jobs. Sometimes he get lucky and we do all right for awhile. Then there's nothin'. So I need somethin' I can depend on.

I don't come all the way up here from Mississippi for my kids to be hungry.
