hovering in the background this year were the events of Watergate.
I hearings began in May, I remember at least one occasion at
Donna's watching them (and possibly Andy's).
Jethro Tull plays the Forum June 2nd,
but they were out of favour with us because of "Passion
What follows are the only events for the months June, July
and August for which dates exist.
Dave, Lesley and I went to my parent's farm for the day, driving
there in the Lincoln. Paul's mother is there, and probably
drunk, freaked us out (there are stories of this woman lifting
her shirt on airplanes). On the way back we stopped in Hawksbury
for gas, pooled our money, and got about $3 worth. The attendant
wished us luck. We did make it, hitting 100 mph on the Ste
Anne's bridge. Dave sang.
Ralph's photos. Dave, Phyl Douse [see below] and I were at Ralph's.
I bought a pair of platform shoes this day [which still exist].
Donna's letter; September 24, 1973.
On November 30, 1996, Gillian finally came through with the
first excerpts from her journals covering June 1973 through
Alan drove Donna, Ralph and I to the A&W. Then Ralph and
Alan came back with me until 5:30.
Ralph & Andy,
Sheila visited. One night we had the Lincoln
parked on Golf Ave (Gillian was away). I remember Sheila (visiting)
and Andy there, though there were more. Andy said it would be
funny if a group of clowns came up, each in large clown shoes,
picked up the car and threw it in the pond. The police came
and told us to move. We had hash and thought we were going to
get busted. We piled everyone in and drove away. We passed the
police again later.
Sheila, Dave, Ralph and I were in the
parking lot of the A+W in D.D.O (where Donna may have already
working), sitting in the car. We saw Alex Mitchell, the school
rich boy (he drove a Bentley) and one of its drug dealers.
Ralph and Dave made loud comments in his direction (Alex had
had a guy at school, George, beaten up because he had scratched
his Bentley. Violence was not an accepted thing with us),
he came over and threatened me instead. He poured what he
said was gasoline over the car (I'm sure now it wasn't), and
said if I told anyone he'd put a bullet in my head. Alex died
of drugs in July, 1976.
Filmed a time-lapse trip to Dave's.
Sheila and I were in the front seat (the camera was on a tripod
in the backseat and fell over once turning a corner. We stopped
at South West One and picked up Andy, Ralph and Donna.
