Early 50's our family moved from Arizona to Southern California. Family 
moved and were staying in a dumpy little hotel, waiting for the moving 
van to arrive. And waited. And waited. Seems the guy driving the truck 
got a quick cash offer to do another job and unloaded everything 
somewhere in the desert, did his other job they came back for what was 
left of our stuff. Among the casualties were my Dad's complete 
collection of 78rpm Caruso discs. ALL broken. Believ tht Mom had to 
restrain Dad from making the driver 'see God'.
