The Invisible Man,
Rob and Dave
I won't get home till about two . I'm thinking of taking a cab
though and if everyone chips in there dollar for bus fare then
it won't cost that much. It just means that we would all have
to leave right after the concert and Andy and all them might
want to go over to the Alexis Nihon afterwards and like I wouldn't
be put out about the cab fare cause I could make that much the
next morning on tips. Haven't been doing much lately Friday
nights are really boring there is usually nothing happening
and on Saturday nights everyone goes to the drop-in.
Don't like driving around in Allan's car that much cause they
are always getting stopped by the cops about a month ago the
cops were waiting for them outside of MacDonald's two cars and
searched all of them and I don't want to be there when and if
they get busted cause if I ever get busted with them my parents
would kick me out for sure and I'd likely loose my job and it
would be real hell trying to get another one. My
brother's girlfriend was up from New York last week. She isn't
that bad and has some really nice clothes but says they cost
a fortune down there. Have been spending money lately like it
is going out of style have gotten my mother's Christmas presents
and it was just my brother's birthday a couple of weeks ago
and it's Ralph's birthday tomorrow so I think I'll give him
his ticket to E.L & Palmer unless I can find something else
that I think he will like. I'm going to ask Dave to meet me
up at Fairview and we'll look together cause I don't have the
foggiest what to get him. Dave keeps on telling Bobby all these
obscene things that he is going to do to me if he ever gets
the chance and as far as I am concerned it will be never. Apparently
Allan has been telling half of his friends how Andy and I celebrated
my birthday I think Allan had a big mouth but one thing I like
about him is he's becoming an alcoholic. Well write soon and
bye for now
may have had a big mouth, but I don't recall drinking that
graduation photo was taken, which was the last official photo
taken in high school. Three were taken and I chose the second
to appear in the annual. As usual I was stoned, knocking over
the prop books during the shoot (and was wearing a "Cocaine"
My father had free hockey tickets for
the Forum he didn't want, so I took them. Dave, Maggie, Rob,
Sue and Steve McKnight went along. Before the game Dave and
Maggie had a disagreement, Dave hit Maggie (he was lucky no
one around did the same to him). We had two sets of seats
in different places, so we switched places between periods.
never been to a game, I was surprised to find that half the
fun were the fans, complete with one who had a trumpet to
call the charge. The Canadians lost 5-0 to Chicago.
the game, in the Alexis Nihon parking garage, Dave pissed
down onto the street, hitting some poor guy at a bus stop.
booth photos exist of Rob [the first], Dave and myself. These
are the last such to survive from this era, ones taken January
4, 1975 of myself after buying Led Zeppelin tickets have since
agreed to return in five years at le Bonjour restaurant in
Alexis Nihon Plaza.
December 2 was the date of the Who concert at the Forum (I
wasn't there). The group was later arrested for busting up
a room at the Bonaventure (the room had been booked for a
Bechtal office party, but had been given to the Who instead).
next day (December 3, Monday) I was told of the concert by
Rob, Tim and Ralph Bird (they had gone) as we had a toke in
the car before morning classes. They like it, Rob like it
a lot (he talked about this concert for years to come).
