WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST HOUSE OR APARTMENT TOGETHER LIKE?
We lived in the wing of the farm house of Gramp's folks. It was rundown and we papered and painted it all to clean it up. We heated with a kerosene heater, one bedroom, pantry and kitchen/living room combined. That was okay because we didn't have much furniture.
A railroad track ran between house and barn. I remember for the first several nights of waking up around 1:30 or 2:00 thinking a train was coming at me. I sat straight up in bed as it rang the whistle as it went by because it was near a house (A warning whistle) and oh so horrifying.
