I just had to share this tidbit I found in a news story about the rescue efforts after the quake in Italy:
"Another of those rescued today was Maria D’Antuono, 98, who said that she had spent 30 hours knitting as she waited to be freed from her ruined home.
'I worked, I knitted,' said Mrs D'Antuono, from the village of Tempera, close to L'Aquila. The redoubtable nonagenarian told rescuers that she was in good health when she was found this morning, according to Sky TG24. "
That made me smile
