1 Monday Holiday
Gillian's at 1, got picked up with Ralph.
[After making arrangements on the phone with Alan and Lesley,
it was decided to go to Lesley's. At around 2:30 I got a ride,
picked up Alan on St John's + Lakeview and drove to Lesley's].
Later got picked up at St John's by Ralph and went to Lesley's,
read 'Life', didn't do much [Dave called
at around 4 and said that he got home from his babysitting job
at 3:30 pm [? probably meant to write
3:30 am]]. Alan
drew caricatures of Lesley + me. We decided to come to my house
tonite.. Got a ride with Ralph at 5:30. As
we were waiting Lesley's nieces were standing by the door. Alan
made suggestive comments which they didn't understand as they
were only about 5 or 6].. nite-walked to Ralph's,
Dave there. [That night Dave came over
at around 7:30. We sat in the basement watching Nicolette make
a shell doll + listening to Cat Stevens. Alan came at around
8:15 and we played Masterpiece with Danielle. Lesley came at
9 and was taking down the hits of the year on the radio
[in other words, she was listening
to a transistor radio which was playing the Top 100 for 1972
and writing down the titles on a notepad].
We played another game of Masterpiece
without Alan. At 11pm we went upstairs and waited for Lesley's
father [step-father] to
pick them up]. Danielle came down and we played
'Masterpiece'. Lesley came and they played while I read a Batman
book. Got a ride at 11:30 with Lesley
[Ralph took photos this night].
2 Tuesday Holiday
Dave and he asked me to come over, as were Diane and Christine.
I called Alan and he decided to go].
Ralph at Fairview at 2, saw Chris in a blue ski jacket. Walked
to Dave's [on the way I found a letter
and I put it in the mailbox of the sender], sat in
the livingroom [for a while cause he
[Dave] wanted to hear "Santana and Miles"
[purchased 27/12/72], which
he had borrowed last night and was going to buy, on a good
stereo]. . Diane and Christine there. Went to
Dave's room, hurt my thumb. [Dave
paid me $4 for the record
[so much for my early foray into Latin-Jazz Fusion]. We were all grossed out by Dave's pillow (remnants of
[a mistake- should be Friday: see 29/12/72]].
Christine left at 4:15, Ralph and I went at 5:20 to get a
bus which never came, so we went back and phoned a taxi.
Christine and I sat in the student's lounge, we went out for
a smoke at the side. History-Dave had a 8 second sandclock
kiss timer [pretty short].
Lunch-sat in the student's lounge with Dave, Ruth, Ralph,
Lesley and sometimes Andy. Went out for a smoke on the sidewalk
of the C.C. [It was really nice weather
and we went out for a cigarette [which
is not to say that we wouldn't have gone out for a cigarette
if the weather had been rotten]...]
and Christine didn't come. B(spare)-Dave, Christine and I
went to the C.C. at the side and smoked one of Dave's joints,
sat in the student's lounge. Lunch-bought 10 joints for $4.50,
sat in the student's lounge with Ralph, Andy, Linda and Ruth,
had blackballs. French-took Smith's book so he knocked my
Math book on the floor then knocked my desk over. He got extra
homework. Math-Andy and I didn't go (Hunt away), we met Ruth
and we went to the aud, then Andy and I went to the library.
English-one oral then a spare. Talked to Webb and Niven. Lora
said she drank about 7 or 9 beers in one and half hours and
no one believed she didn't get drunk.
83. In 1980 he was working in a sauna in Vancouver. Talking
with Ralph on August 15, 1993, I learned he comes to Montreal
at times to visit Ralph's sister. That news ended the death
rumours about Dave that had circulated in the '80's. (See February
