Caveat: 1994

Michelle and I
moved in together. Then I spent six months studying the Mapuche Language (Native
American Patagonian) at the Universidad Austral de Chile, in Valdivia, Chile. I got to see
Buenos Aires, Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia, Uruguay, etc. I was back in
Minnesota with Michelle and Jeffrey for Christmas. Michelle and I decided we were 'married.' We both had apprehensions about state-sponsored relationships, though, so we didn't do anything legally binding at this point.

Caveat: Model A Ford

I don't remember the exact date, but around Christmas of 1994, right after having my having returned from 6 months in Chile, Michelle, Jeffrey and I traveled to Los Angeles from Minneapolis, to visit my father and family. This was one day when I think we got into my dad's 1928 Model A Ford and drove to the beach. Here is a picture of me and Jeffrey with the car in the driveway of where my dad was living at that time, which happened to be right next door to the house he grew up in.
