1966–1970 3414 Bevann Drive, Farmers’ Branch, Texas

1970–1980 6038 Woodland Drive, Dallas, Texas. (Note: This is not the McMansion I grew up in. It, and so many others in the Preston Hollow neighborhood, have been bulldozed and replaced by much bigger houses as property values skyrocketed over the past 20 years).

1980–1981 Twin Towers dormitory, Ole Miss, Oxford, Mississippi

1981-1982 554 Hathorn Road, Oxford, Mississippi. Also known as the “Roundhouse Apartments” I shared this penthouse with my brother, CO, for a year.

1982–1984 The Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house, Ole Miss, Oxford, Mississippi

Summer, 1983 3600 Southwood Road, Memphis, Tennessee. I interned that summer at the (now-defunct) Memphis Press-Scimitar, a Scripps-Howard newspaper. I boarded at Mr Rudin’s house. I met his daughter, Allison, at SMU the year before and she invited me to stay at her Dad’s house for the summer. It didn’t end well.
