I am rebuilding my box trailer

I found it in a vacant lot near my home

I bought it for $35 worth of labor from a
respected and liked friend Harvey D Pease

Harvey was also the realtor that collected my rent

Truly excellent natural products.

Our bedroom cottage


Left here on a bus heading west. It
was to be a short trip to see the new
investment and collect the back rent.

Under the rear deck of our home
on Santa Rosa Drive
South Laguna, CA

A bunch of these pictures were taken by Iva (Cici) Young
and mailed to us before we bought the place


Had bought it 8/16/1973 sight unseen on
David and Cici Young's recommendation

We decided to stay

Some of these pics were actually taken
after my return (see below). Oh well.

My Willy's Jeep had been in storage at Mesa
Automotive, near where we got off the bus

I flew east to gather our posessions. This
began the overuse of our credit card which would
eventually lead to our having to sell the place
