Rick & Lin's 4th HOME: 1974 - 1987
Rick "followed the work" again, This time to Alabama Power Company's Farley Nuclear Plant Construction Project near Dothan. We rented here for nearly 2 years With the downturn in the Central Florida economy, our home their did not sell for a 'bit over a year and two house payments made things "tight"!
While in Dothan, Rick & Lin bought their second "brick & Mortar" home ... again a 3 BR, 2 BA, ~ 1500 SF "starter / 2nd owner / home" ... this time on 1 acre and including a nice separate 20x40 storage building.
Our son Todd "joined us in Dothan, our daughter Samantha experienced her 7th birthday (her first time to have two consecutive birthdays in the same house) and we all experienced our closest call yet from a Tornado! Took down the shop about 30' away from the house! Rebuilt it better :-) same size but this time with a 20x20 shop and a 20x20 storage section.
Also while in Dothan we started to do a LOT of domestic travel, following the NBL BMX racing circuit with Todd ... from South Carolina to Missouri and Florida to Indiana .... seems like if it was within 800 miles it was fair game for a weekend "ROAD TRIP"!!!!
When the Farley project was completed it was time to follow the work again. At least this time it was still with Alabama Power Company ... but now it's off to Birmingham.
