00:00:00.000 I moved into an attic apartment with a friend from high school, his uncle owned it, and during the first year-. It's really sort of interesting.
00:00:10.452 It didn't have a refrigerator or anything so we built a basket and put it outside the window to keep the squirrels from eating
00:00:16.686 what my mama would make on the weekends when I'd come home, and that was our refrigerator. Dr. Whitener asked Dan and I to dig out a basement,
00:00:27.830 so we dug out a basement and built an apartment and the next year my wife and I moved in that basement apartment. I lived there until
00:00:36.838 I was able to move to Vetville Barracks, which was about the toughest living conditions I've ever lived in, but the rent was cheap and that's what I needed.
