A Lucille between two Evelyns. That was Far Guys old neighhborhood. His parents Marvin and Evelyn, next door was Emil and Lucille and then Ray and Evelyn.
Emil and Lucille’s lawn was off limits…the boys… Far Guy and his friends used the alley…cause no one wanted Emil to call their mothers. Emil was a crank, he didn’t like kids and he made no bones about it.
Far Guy says “poor old Emil …he hated boys and he was always watching Mark and I, it seems like everything we did wrong Emil was there to notice. One time I was locked out of the house …I knew how to get into the house by going through the basement window, so naturally I was on my way through the window when Emil showed up shook his finger at me and said “I’ve got your number.” Emil had a row of cabins in his yard next to our property line…so he was the eagle eyed neighbor. He must have been watching everything in the entire neighborhood. One of my sister Jan’s friends was accused of stealing vegetables from Emil’s garden.”
Lucille and Evelyn
