July 2 Friday
Got the album 'Sticky Fingers' by The Rolling Stones [with the near perfect song 'Sway'].

July 3 Saturday
At the side of the house with Tilden
[Foster, my next door neighbour], Banks, [Ken?] Saliman [who lived across the street] and Gatenbey [there were two Gatenbee brothers , Andy and Michael, Michael was ugly. I'd know then since grade school...Jim Morrison died in Paris, I remember seeing it on the evening news].

July 5 Monday
Warren Wilansky
is born. Was this a good thing?

July 6 Tuesday
Started summer school at Lindsey Place High
[for French that I did not pass]. Tina in the class. Met Robert Rea outside the door. [though having to take school was drag, it was because of it that I met Lesley in September...].

July 12 Monday
Went to the Dairy Queen after school, Tilden there, and a guy with a small motor bike. Went to the shops, bought one Export "A" 25, then to the tunnels with Robert Rea [the tunnels were build under the highway 2&20 so you could cross it in safety. It was covered in graffiti. Every time they repainted it, it was covered again. I wish someone had done an archeological study of the layers, but they were torn down and replaced with new ones c. 1990], met Haden there. We went back to the shops with Haden.

July 14 Wednesday(7)
After class sat in the reckroom and listened to music [on the only progressive rock station in Montreal CKGM-FM, later to become CHOM (named from the mantra 'OM'). They (actually Doug Pringle, see September 7, 1972) went on the air October 28, 1969 and I'd heard of them in 1970 . I would record music too, songs by Mountain, Spirit, The Faces, Jethro Tull and Deep Purple, among other...]

July 15 Thursday
After class told jokes with Brenda Gates and a friend.

July 17 Saturday
Saw the movie 'The Statue' at Fairview.

[Jethro Tull, here making their first appearance in the journals].

July 21 Wednesday
After class sat outside and 1&1/2 hours with Rea, a girl Cyndy, Brenda, Tilden and [Dugald] MacFerson
[a friend of Foster, who I known since about 1965. He would reappear in 1974]. Later in the afternoon Robert Read and Gatenby came to the door.
