I Was So Much Older Then

This was my first house and my 1957 Chevy Belair.

The wife and I bought this house in 1984 for $115,000, and the car I traded for a Honda 350 that was a used bike when I got it. The car had a cherry interior and a solid straight 6 engine.

That house is listed on Zillow at $973,000.  I wish I still had the car too!

The two dogs, below, were from the same period: Haddie the Border Terrier, and Barney the stray I picked up cold and sick on the streets of Oberlin, Ohio. Barney died of old age at 15. Haddie had heart failure at age 10.
