When I arrived in Deep River, my wife and daughter met me at the door when they noticed the arrival of the limousine. They seemed very happy to see me. In part, this may well have been due to the fact that the house’s only furnishings at this stage were some sheets on the windows and two mattresses on the living room floor. The next day turned out to be Saturday and that permitted us to make hurried acquisitions of necessities such as a ringer washer, a stove, and a fridge. A kind neighbour made arrangements for the purchase of an old nineteen fifty eight Pontiac for $300.00. As time went on this car became a lot lighter, as one defective part after another gave out, and was thrown away.
