Stanley Evans Snowdy was born on April 20th, 1954 (interesting that he was born on 420). He became my first BFF. Stanley Snowdy & I met in first grade. We have lived in the same city three times. There were periods where we would loose track of each other for a few years, but we always found each other again. There was an era when we saw each other daily for about three years. We have been through a lot of good times, a few sexy times, & we have helped each other through some major shit. Stanley has lost two partners. He is also a little nutty.
He has lived in Spokane, Phoenix, Portland, Eugene, Astoria, Seattle & now he lives with his two dogs in Palm Springs.
We both moved back to Spokane, for a short sprint in the late 70s, to collect ourselves after some trauma of some kind (boys). At that time he lived in Peaceful Valley, a neighborhood in Spokane, near downtown, that is right on the river, not far from the falls. He lived in an original cabin that was one step up from a squatter's shack. At one point he lived in William Holden's mother's house in Palm Springs. I think he lived in his beloved VW for a time. In the 90s, he didn't live- but might as well have, at our house in Seattle. He collects cigar boxes & he has hundreds. The husband & I have several objects that came from Stanley... so we think of him often. He is loved.
A little something juicy: Stanley & the husband had an affair once, before the husband & I were an item. One Degree of Separation? I think they would have been terrific BFs- two difficult, stubborn, hard headed, artistic Aires!
