Paradise Cove Road to the Poconos
A few years ago, I saw a classified ad for a house trailer on a piece of land in the Poconos. The price was reasonable, somewhere around $13,000. It was on a pond or lake. I clipped it out and stuck it inside the case of a CD--now buried in a stack somewhere or given away to Goodwill. Retirement plan taken care of.
I found out about James Garner's death yesterday watching TV, where else? I wasn't a huge Rockford Files fan but the show managed to imprint itself anyway. Especially the idea of living modestly (minus the Firebird) to be someplace beautiful. On the beach in Malibu, in the Poconos, or maybe Biscuit City, RI.
