Kelly’s friend thought it would be a good time to have a party. The party was crashed by a gang of kids that Kelly and her friend didn’t know. They started trashing the house and wouldn’t leave. Kelly’s friend called the police to break up the party, but Kelly and her friend had been drinking and both were drunk. Dana had heard there was a party at this address and just happened to pull up to the house as the police were taking his sister out of the house in handcuffs. He decided he would rescue her.

We would have cookouts at each other’s houses, and when one of us would rent a cottage at Hampton Beach, we always rented one with as many bedrooms as we could get because we knew all the family and our friends would be coming up. The beach was always great fun and a big part of all our lives. When my brothers, sister, and I were little kids, my dad would save all year so we could go on a two-week vacation to the beach. The tradition continued with all our kids, Dana and his sister and their cousins, and it continues to this day with our grandchildren.

Every day before I started driving, I gave Dana and one of the dogs a Dramamine because they both would get carsick. About an hour after giving them both the pill, I would look in the rear view mirror and see the two of them leaning against each other, propping each other up, their heads nodding and their eyes fluttering slowly shut. My car was an older Mercury Monarch and I was towing a 1958 MG that I was attempting to restore. On top of the car was a container holding our luggage for the trip.
