One of the original "Bungaloids" from the legendary Ten
Bungalows in Hollywood where I lived (and helped keep populated with a wonderful
assortment of mainly Southern - and for the most part wildly talented -
personalities), Robert Higgins, and fellow Vanderbilt grad Harry Crawford Binion,
and I spent many happy hours at Ten Bungalows. Bob always procured the
bunting for the annual enormous 4th of July parties during the 1980's.
introduced Bob to his wonderful wife Lynn Rose- Higgins, a pioneering filmmaker who
broke new ground in the music video craze when MTV exploded into American
popular culture. These two now live in Nashville, Tennessee, and operate a high-end Dog Care
business . We phone chat and love politics even
though its current toxicity has taken some of the fun out of that pastime.
The Rose-Higgins had better be planning a visit to Sierra Paloma (my home in
Bessemer, Alabama). They know how to reach me and have a standing invitation.
