Children never remember the logistics and difficulties of moving. They remember living in one place, and then another. I was no different. We were in Spirit Lake, then we were in Glenrose Prairie, an unincorporated area southeast of Spokane. For the parents it is quite different. "One move is worth two fires," according to Benjamin Franklin.

During our first year in Glenrose Prairie, a family moved next door, in the house to the west. The father was a greaser, with a ducktail and fins, and a pack of camels rolled up in his short shirtsleeve. His son Dickie was a carbon copy, sans the cigarettes. Dickie was my age, and had two teenage sisters, Sherry and Pernie.

Bruce Redding had access to a transistor radio, and we carried it everywhere, listening to KJRB, a local radio station. Dee-jays of the period played an eclectic mix of genre, including show tunes and movie themes, rock & roll, rhythm and blues, gunfighter ballads and country and western, folk music, nightclub crooners and occasional jazz. We liked Roy Orbison, Del Shannon, Gene Pitney, Fats Domino, Bo Diddly, The Shirelles, The Crystals, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Bobby Blue Bland, Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, Marty Robbins, Acker Bilk, Mary Wells, Henry Mancini and on and on.
