I started in cottage 2 with Nancy and Bob Burtron as the house parents. It was fun, but could be hard work. We supervised work hours, drove the van and transported the kids, had a level system we administered. This included scoring their chores and rooms.

These pictures are from a group shot, but to preserve confidentiality I am showing myself, with a mustache and Patsy and Charlie, Bob and Nancy's children.
There were lots of facilities as well. Bob liked to lift weights and had lots of equipment. I could never lift as much as Bob, but I got to where I could bench over 200. There was also ping pong, and I perfected my spins and smashes. I could beat all the kids.
