Over the course of our conversation with Ed and Phyllis Baker that morning, we scribbled down some of the wise and practical things they had to say on various subjects. For instance …

On a successful marriage:

“Have a kiss every day.”

“Don’t have separate checkbooks.”

“You need a sense of humor.”

On being fire chief:

“You gotta be willing to leave the supper table before you’re finished.”

On being town clerk and tax collector:

“Go by the rules. When you start doing favors, you’re in trouble.”
