Moved to Tower Grove

Mom sold the house to move to Creve Coeur, so we had to leave. Thankfully, we were finding enough work to pay rent, so we moved into a shotgun apartment in Tower Grove South. This was still very affordable at the time.

It was a pleasure to live across from the park, though I remember a miserable heat wave in summer of 1993. We would soak bedsheets in water and wrap in them in front of fans, which worked to get to sleep.
