The situation left me with no choice but to put my Airstream renovations on-hold and sell my newer Airstream. I had to return to Delaware. If creativity wasn’t in demand before, now it was really needed.
After unsuccessfully applying for several positions, I was returning from coaching my son’s basketball team one Wednesday evening when I received a phone call. A small Catholic high school in Wilmington was so impressed with my swiss army-knife skill set that they wanted me to come in for an interview for a new position they wanted to create, for me.
And just like that, almost twenty-years to the day, I had started a new journey and career. This time as a communications coordinator and web design teacher for an all-girls school in Little Italy that had been my sworn-enemy in basketball 25 years earlier. Funny how the world turns right?
Best of all though? Mom was given a clean bill of health in February, right around when I finally found this elusive pic of her with an Airstream in 1973 at Fort Wilderness in Disneyworld. While it’s very difficult to find info on this, Disney did at one point, briefly rent Airstreams at their campground. You didn’t seriously think that Dodge Colt towed it there did you? LOL.
