It was the end of Spring break and all of us were driving down the back roads toward our lake house.
My sibling and I had knockout tans and 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 all of us were traveling; Mom and Dad were in the front seat and all of us women were in the back, the stereo was playing something from the 78’s and Russ’s trailer home 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 despite the fact that I had heard about the parties. I always wondered why whoever put the thing there put the A/C component in front of the house! It was a crazy eye sore and when it switched on you could hear it from the road on a quiet afternoon. I used to ride my bike that way all the time until he moved into the place. The stuck out of the window and was propped up with a 2 x 4 and I imagine about as big as the room it was cooling. In fact I would suppose that the home is enjoy a immense cold ice box, this was that big. The vents were kind of broken off and there were a few scraggly bushes kind of blocking them. Further inspection would find it really needed diagnosed by a Heating and A/C worker or repairman.
