Tim and a T-Bird

In St.Petersburg, Florida, early 1980s. I moved from Lassing Park to this place on Ling-A-Mor Terrace. Out back was Big Big Bayou—five minutes by water to where Cocoon was filmed (exteriors of the retirement facility. I watched from my boat). The Dali Museum was nearby and, too, The Chattaway, a beer-and-burgers joint in the shade of big oaks.
