and here i am, under the wide open sky at Costa Trailer Court. MY HOME.
and there's the corner of a trailer now. am i happy? i am. here's the
main reason i wound up here. and reason # 2 was these guys. and let's not forget Cindi puppy,
a charming dog, this is me with my pal Suzy Morehead. which is how i found the place to begin with.
however, this is not entirely a story of 'happily ever after', as
you know if you've read the relevant memoir chapters. so here
are the photo highlights.
let's start with happy days. the bride and groom . . . . in Chicago here.
they look happy, right. there's more . . . . still in Chicago, and . . . . at her mother's, pre -
foreclosure . . . and,
at my studio in Ridgefield Pk., and . . . at an unidentified location, and . . . . .
on here wedding day, and with a home off her own in a trailer park . . .
she should have been happy, right? she looks happy here. in her own room,
with the baby boy and her stuffed animals . . .
upon the marriage bed . . . i was HAPPY. little Walter was HAPPY TOO.
he had his own room!!
he had a CANOE!
well - i made him a toy canoe. ;))
we played gopher golf. we played with heavy equipment i was
HAPPY!! the dog was happy. even my mean old Dad
was happy. i had found a woman who i hoped would be my LAST sailer.
it should have lasted FOREVER - but it didn't.
