“So you’ve got a big shelf unit that’s got a bunch of dolls on it. Super Girl, and Super Boy, and Girl Boy and Dynamite Twins, and whatever. Like Bat Person and Green Person. Umm. Big Boob Girl. Bigger Boob Girl.” -JR
A Wurlitzer, Rhodes, Juneau 106, a very big crate of kazoos, some Long Winters vinyls, vintage t-shirts, Roderick campaign materials (including a giant “Vote Roderick” banner). Various and sundry things from the free pile.
John’s split level house setup as well, rigged with strings and Lipton ice tea. Could build the USS Enterprise (NOT the starship).
43:00- Finding a new enclave
John makes a cup of coffee, in his own mug.
John doesn’t like potatoes.
Not french fries, not potato chips. He’s never had a corned beef hash.
Also didn’t like Twinkies.
What kind of kid are you?
Eating cold peas
These aren’t new peas. It’s the same bowl of peas.
John’s dad prepared the Kraft cheese sauce in a separate box.
The first rule is you don’t follow the instructions on the box. Less butter, less milk.
John’s mom’s secret: water not milk, little butter, little salt.
1:13:00- Merlin: John’s mom has reasons why she does most things, even if we don’t know what that reason is.
She didn’t realize that the cheese powder was “orange food coloring and dust and ice tea mix... She understood it to be cheese.” JR
The difficult of transition times
John’s daughter stomped her foot at him.
John once painted the walls of his dad’s house yellow while he was out of town.
