21 Washington

Our move to Hungtington WV was exciting as neither of us had lived here before.  We initially moved into a red brick duplex on the West Side.  The rooms were narrow and rather cramped.  We had a gas heater in the bedroom with a calming light that counter balanced the scanner with the loud alarms.  Two young men, Coolie and Earl, rented the other side of the house.  Earl, a former Marshall football player and Dallas shared Oreo cookies.  I worked at St. Mary's Hospital and Bob for the Herald Dispatch.  1978
