Back in the day I remember walking around my neighborhood in Pine Forest Trailer Park in Michigan dragging sacks stuffed with can tabs to the gas station with my best friend Rose. And I remember the walk to the gas station. It was a super hot day–the day my mother got me new shoes. And there was tar on the block–I can still remember the smell of the tar melting on the black top. My left shoe got stuck in the goo never to be used again. LOL! The walk home sucked. When I got home, my mom swatted my butt.
