The train stopped right outside our front door that took us to the old and now redeveloped riverfront Park , the old depot to go to visit my great grandmother a homesteader in the north of Spokane she lived through wars of One and Two loosing a husband to each and was remarried She once held status of a large land owner where the crop was wheat, lost after the war she had a reputable grocery store she saved everything and found a use for it even the wrap off the new grocers way of selling meat the twities off the bread so in fall the corn could be shucked wrapped tied and frozen she was a provider, a goofy carring and lovving lady,...

Back to Spirit Lake as the chef and only one again as my Mom now the new owner of Sedelmyers Resort and the Mill Creek Inn Restaraunt sold to another couple in early retirement, We rocked the place busiest season ever as well stressfull the health department closed us down the weekend of the fourth of July due to the Lake water contaminated and condemed for commercial use expediantly she had a well put in which went dry in two weeks so water purification was as easy to take from the lake and chloranate it passed inspections and we remained open for only down time of about a week. That summer a old aqaintence stopped through town we became best of freinds even bed buddies for awhile introduced me to amphetimines where it was a chronic problem and as the business was slowly incurring one tradgedy after another so had my parents relationship as well my reckless drivving ticket for totaling my moms new car at 130 miles per hour the tire blew out as Id been searching the clubs for my of age aqaintence from Sandpoint Idaho to Cheney Washinton defying all road rules the tree that finally came to be the resting place of all the debris was completely ripped from the ground roots and all as well lucky to be alive the summer was in its finallies the new owners of the Mill Creek Inn defaulted leaving my mother responsible for incurred debts of excess 60,000 and the resort still not escrowed into her name as the legal bitter sweet ness of seperation can bite It rekindled my dad from the bar drinking and off the coach as a ten year phase he had and back to work as well back to my mother where they resolved their diffrences.
