Singer-songwriter and musician Buddy Coughlin, AKA "Pleasant Bud".  Born in New Jersey, USA.  Kidnapped by my mother at the age of 6 to hide out in a small town in eastern South Dakota. I discovered that I had new stepfather who was evidently a well-to-do man with a few restaurants around the state.

He was a gambler and soon Mom had to go to work for the competition on the other side of Main Street.  Falling from the split-level 5 bedroom apartment above the Sears catalog store we landed in a cinder block 1 room divided-by-curtain shack in a trailer (caravan) park on the edge of town. Not even a trailer. We looked UP to trailer people! Stepdad disappeared and Mom decided it was safe to come out of hiding and return to Jersey City.
