Re: “'Every day was a Tuesday'

When the toy factory moved to Booneville in 1970 the employees that transferred from PA with the company were temporarily housed at the sanitorium due to a shortage of homes available. My friend was a child then and has fond memories of herself and other children running and sliding in their socks on the marble floors.
My aunt and uncle were the couple mentioned by BoonevillePhil above. They met as patients there at the age of 16 and 17. Their english tutor played cupid and forcefully introduced them at a dance thrown there for the teen patients. They weren't able to marry until they were both discharged when they were in their 20's. My uncle took mail order classes for bookkeeping while in the sanitorium and set up an a very successful office in Booneville after his discharge. He was Billy Dale and she was Billie Marie.
