We live next to a large open area, our unit was in a corner with a rocky wall that was below a roadway higher up. I remember rolling a tire accross the field that eventually rolled across a road and went down to a creek that had trees around it. There were also sheep herders that occasionally crossed the area there as well. There was a bus stop on that corner area that my mother would would go to the local town and shop. I remember eating a small pickled fish, some like "baccaroni" or similar. Sure did love that, closest thing to it today is wine pickled herring. There was a man that came around to our unit to cut our hair then too, always got a buzz cut. Going to the local store somewhere there and buying Bazooka Bubble Gum that was wrapped in comics, 2 for a penny, and everytime I found a penny, my sisters would take me. Playing with cap guns was the thing back then too. Those were fun days as I remember them. My sisters went to school there, they are DeLaine Baughman and Sheila Baughman, not sure of thier grade attended.
