GOLD CREEK (LAMP LIGHTER) APARTMENTS #203B, THORNTON
It was ours! Mom and me and eventually my cat, birds and occasionally my ever-troubled brother. There was a pool and playground. Across a small creek was a huge field.
We had a one bedroom which mom gave to me. It was baby blue with gingham curtains. Mom slept in the living room. Our plants thrived. The neighbors never complained about the music. We lived there when John Lennon died.
Mom worked two jobs so I was the housekeeper. Weekly I rearranged the furniture. Keep things fresh. We stayed over two years.
