Hillbilly Heaven

Moody, Missouri, 1971.

Here we are -- Judy, Sue and I -- after we'd been on our Missouri homestead for nearly a year. We were about to leave for what would turn out to be my last job -- at the Lunar and Planetary Lab at the University of Arizona in Tucson. I lasted 5 months. Actually I quit after 2 months, but my boss got me to stay and train my successor.

When we got back, I moved our trailer against the wall on the right side of the photo, and rebuilt the room we're sitting in. This was my first big carpentry job.
