When I say that I needed to hide out from the law, that doesn’t mean I committed a crime. There was some legal trouble my family was in, plus the last thing I wanted to do was to testify against my own mother. I decided to go “on the lam” as they say, plus hide out for a few months until her trial was over. A trusted family associate managed to find me a remote lodge in the foothills where I could stay for a few weeks, or even a few months. It was simple, plus small, however there was electricity plus a water heater, plus an aged rabbit-ear TV! A few mornings later I got up into the attic plus found some other goodies, including a small portable air conditioning unit, plus a VCR with a box full of videotapes. I can’t say which a single made me happier, because the little air conditioning was such a breath of fresh, chilly air in the musty aged lodge. Located in a narrowvalley in the foothills, this lodge got actually little direct wind, which means the lodge got little ventilation or air circulation. The air conditioning machine was barely strong enough to cool me down even when I sit right on top of it, however still it was a nice change! Even better than the air conditioning was the VCR plus the aged videotapes, most of which were sitcoms plus cartoons from the 71s. Turning on the air conditioning, plus then seeing the aged tapes all night long was the most fun I had living in that lodge.
