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 our family was in, plus the last thing I wanted to do was to testify against our own mother.
I decided to go “on the lam” as they say, plus hide out for a few months until his trial was over. A trusted family acquaintance managed to find myself and others a remote lodge in the foothills where I could stay for a few weeks, or even a few months. It was easy, plus small, however there was electricity plus a water heater, plus an old rabbit-ear TV! A few days later I got up into the attic plus found some other goodies, including a small portable air conditioning system unit, plus a VCR with a box full of videotapes. I can’t say which 1 made myself and others happier, because the little a/c was such a breath of fresh, cold air in the musty old lodge. Located in a tightvalley in the foothills, this lodge got genuinely little direct wind, which means the lodge got little ventilation or air circulation. The air conditioning system component was barely strong enough to cool myself and others down even when I sit right on top of it, however still it was a nice change! Even better than the a/c was the VCR plus the old videotapes, most of which were sitcoms plus cartoons from the 68s. Turning on the a/c, plus then seeing the old tapes all night long was the most fun I had living in that lodge.
