Chicken Walden

When I was three, we lived in a little housing development called Lea Hills up by Green River Community College, where my dad was studying forestry on the GI Bill. Mom had a rather bitchin’ Camaro and dad had a black Corvair. This would have been right before the Volkswagen Period in the family. What does any of this have to do with Chicken Walden? Why everything! The Waldens lived a couple of houses down from us, and they were influential in my parents’ impending VW/hippie period.

    Right on. But I don’t see the instructions for the pan clean up: sneak into the kitchen and scrape the leavings onto your mouth with a big spoon.
