19 SOMETHIN’ SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE – DAY 22 & 23 19-somethin_sidebar_button



Q – day 22 – When did you first live on your own? Did you buy or rent? Share a picture if you have one.

The only time I’ve lived alone, was never. We got married, and he deployed to Viet-Nam while I stayed at my parents house until he returned. The other times he was over seas, I either went back to my parents house, or stayed in government housing with my girls.

The first house we got, though, was rented. This was in Lawton, Oklahoma (Ft. Sill). The house was a one bedroom, kitchen, bath, and living room. It cost $60 a month. We had some good neighbors in the duplex. While the men were at work on base, us girls would get together to watch TV or play cards. 🙂 Here’s a photo of it.

Then, we moved a block or so away to another duplex. The rent here was $65 a month. It was the same, one bedroom, living room, kitchen and bath. Here’s the photo.



Q – day 23 – How old were you when you bought your first car? 

We bought our first car, I think when we were 19. We were married, he came home on leave from Viet-Nam, and we bought the blue ’65 Mustang. (see day 19 question for photo)


Thanks for visiting! Peace }i{
