While in CA waiting to get on plane celebrated Mike’s 9th birthday. House cost 7500$ to 7800$ A Japanese man brought a suitcase full of Japanese yen to buy the house. They got a blue ford station wagon and traveled all over Japan – it was as long as our house. Left the car at the airport for someone else to pick up. Sarah was born, and at 17 had to declare citizenship. No place to put everyone on base, so Jack had to build a house before they could come. It had been a corn field; woke up the first morning to crows the size of biplanes landing on the tin roof. Brenda was a hot rod mama – riding a motorcycle at age 12 Tampa, Florida: Jack retired Mike was in 7th grade and “integrated” to a black school. Jack and Donna would buy groceries at night, get on motorcycle, pack whatever they could and carry the rest. They bought 1 box of cookies and 1 large drink for that 2 weeks. Later the family stayed with Aunt Jean and Uncle Kenneth.
