“More Manageable”

IMG_0130I still had the problem of more expenses than income. Fortunately the owner of the large apartment complex had also built an 8 unit in a much more peaceful neighborhood. My responsibilities were simpler: renting the other seven units, collecting the rent, phoning him with maintenance issues and generally keeping an eye on things. The units rented easily, they were new and needed little maintenance, and nothing much went on in the neighborhood. I moved into the top right unit pictured more recently in the photo.

By now I had acquired a roommate, my husband to be, and it was a comfortable place to live. During the time I lived there I encountered no drama and no need to call the police. The river was an easy walk away, and a new shopping area was another few blocks away.

But I had a long standing dream of living on a houseboat. More tomorrow!

    1. These pictures were captured from Google maps. They are very recent. However, the places look the same as they did 40 years ago. Tomorrow I will write about the houseboat.


  1. I’m glad things worked out for a better apartment, and getting married! I can’t wait to hear about the houseboat. That is something I have always wanted to do.
