We didn't have a lot of kids in the neighborhood, except the boys my brothers knew. They always seemed to know a group of boys in the immediate area, who they played and fought with. They once got in trouble for breaking into a neighbor's house and stealing some of her things. My third brother said that all he took(he was around eight years old at the time of the break in) was some popsicles from the freezer. Those were minor misadventures compared to what happened later with my oldest brother.
Until I started school, most of my days blurred together. I remember Mom being with the Columbia Record and Tape Club, and country music would fill the Crooked Little House from her old stereo. Charlie Rich-Behind Closed Doors. That song got played a lot. Our neighbors Gene and Sue became a fixture, as did Bob and Hazel, who lived in a bigger house next to Gene and Sue. Sue was a nurse who worked at General, which I guess was a real swinging place, because it was rumored that Sue and the other young nurses would have sex in the closets with the interns. :)
