Thank goodness I took a photo of the name of these apartments as I wouldn't have remembered it on my own. The Snooty Fox! What a name, huh? Oh, and what a place!
This is the first place I moved to when I moved out from my parents home. I originally moved in a two bedroom apartment with two other girls. Eventually one of the girls moved elsewhere and the other one and I lived here, actually in two different apartments, for quite awhile. I felt so proud of myself that I was able to move out when I was eighteen, and had a career!
The layout was grand. When you walk into the complex,(through the gate here and to the left) you notice all of the apartments surround a pool. Every apartment (within the square of the pool) had a balcony that looked out to the pool.
This was the party apartment complex! Wow, were there some parties! I specifically remember one that was a 50's party, with 50's music. At Christmas a group of us from the complex got together and went Christmas Caroling. We always ended up at someones apartment each night.
When I lived here I had major tooth issues. I ended up having to go to the hospital to have wisdom teeth pulled. It was thought that I had a blot clot in my jaw, and so they wanted me in the hospital. When I woke up, all I saw was blood, I thought they hit the blood clot and I was bleeding to death! I passed out. Of course, that wasn't the case.
I had my first car when I lived here. If I remember correctly, it was a blue 1966 Chrysler De Soto. What a tuna boat! Of course I was so proud to have bought this car with my own money, my dad helped me pick it out. I wanted a lot of car around me, to be safe. My girlfriend didn't have a car, so thank goodness I did!
Along with the new apartment, I eventually gained a new boyfriend also who lived in the same complex, and my parents disowned me because of it. He was twice my age! The more I was told I shouldn't have this boyfriend, the more I was determined to prove them wrong! We were together for a couple of years. The "forbidden" boyfriend and I lived in a few different places, which I will share along this journey of "Those Places Thursday!"
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
