Life on the Farm

"The one (house) in North Hollywood was a four-room shack. It had a sink, no built in’s, a refrigerator, or maybe an ice box, and then when we made a little money, we bought a cold spot Sears refrigerator, and then of course our toilet facilities were out housed, about a hundred yards from the house."

~Bo Sakaguchi
