It was the end of Spring cut & we were driving down the back roads toward our lake house.
My sibling & I had knockout tans & couldn’t wait to get back to show off with our friends.
My friend Russ, who was a couple of years my senior, lived with a couple of buds in a trailer on a piece of ground on this road we were traveling! Mom & Dad were in the front seat & we women were in the back, the radio was playing something from the 68’s & Russ’s trailer loft was up on the right. Of course I sat up to attention to check out who all was there. I myself had never been there however I had heard about the parties. I constantly wondered why whoever put the thing there put the A/C device in front of the house! It was a absurd eye sore & when it switched on you could hear it from the road on a quiet day. I used to ride my bike that way all the time until he moved into the site. The air conditioner stuck out of the window & was propped up with a 2 x 4 & I imagine about as substantial as the room it was cooling. In fact I would suppose that the loft is love a substantial cold ice box, this air conditioner was that big. The vents were kind of broken off & there were a few scraggly bushes kind of blocking them. Further inspection would find it actually needed maintained by a Heating & Air Conditioning worker or repairman.
