For the job interview
he had me fly to

I rented a Single Wide Mobil home to live in on NEAL AVE. It was quite old but livable.
My new employer was a friendly guy who invited me to his home, high on a hill,
to the West. His beautiful Great Dane was the first to welcome me. :)

One weekend they invited me along to  swim at their favorite inlet on Lake Mead.
It could have been at BONELLI LANDING.

One thing I won't forget is going to lunch with the gang and Dick picking up a
a cute little GREEN PEPPER and telling me "Try this Vern". I did WOW!

We put our house in Arknsas up for sale, and this phone company paid for shipping furniture this time. Driving our 8 year old 1969 FORD into Oklahoma, we hit ROUTE 66 and followed it through New Mexico and into Arizona. Past the Petrified Forest we blew a tire. It was winter type tire.
One my first field trips required me to trace a cable
laying on the ground, through a bushy field.
Out - Jumped a JACK RABBIT.

Before we knew it we were in PEACH SPRINGS.
