Reddy tomfoolery

A portion of Patricia Burroughs’ memories of her “Grannymamma:”

She also was the ringleader of a group of young GI’s wives who stole Reddy-Kilowatt from the front of the electric company in Baton Rouge and hid him in her bedroom until the end of the war. (The MPs talked a lot about the braze[n]ness of that burglary at the USO and she just listened and nodded sympathetically.)
