bus came and she was not on it. I let Ralph pick a bus to
get on for Dave Hughes 'cause 2 new which one I'd get on if
he let me (Bennie's). He picked that one anyway and we pushed
to the back. I sat on the floor and met a decent looking chick
from my math class and her good looking friend.
quite stoned, we got off the bus a Westminster. Gillian got
off one right behind us. We walked up the street, a little
behind those other people. I snorted another cap and gave
Ralph a snort.
made it to Dave Hughes. He has a really cool splif-level house.
All those people were there, drinking of course. Dave poured
me a beer. It was quite a good night, my head kept getting
fucked-up tho', 'cause his records kept skipping -I carried
Connie's purse upstairs to the door for her because she had
a heavy bottle of orange juice inside. Dave's father asked
me if I was going to carry it home for her; I said no; and
then he said what's wrong you too stoned? which sort of blew
my brains a bit.
just like a fucking Peyton Place with those people, Patty
was crying over Ralph, Ralph likes Pat, Heather still like
me and Ralph eventually split with Patty and Gillian. Patty
went home, Gill thumbed a ride and the rest of us went into
A+W to talk to Murry + Cliff. Murry was pissed off at Bennie
'cause she was in a cold-like mood all night and causequently
so was Julie. He told me that she broke off with me so she
could be free for her 16th birthday...I believed it, later

out (after Heather + Ralph had left) that Bennie went around
with me 'cause I was a good ornament for a chick to have.
Perhaps anyway, this fucked my head around a tree, the first
time it had really happened. So what?
after school gatherings we'd listen to the Live Earl Jive on
CHOM (and he's have to play 'Tubular Bells' every day because
it was still on the charts). During this time Disco appears
(eg. Barry White). Also the time of Zappa's 'Apostrophy', and
Paul McCartney's 'Band on the Run'.
Ralph and I were in the same typing
English class was a joke, hassling Mrs. McCrea was fun. One
day she left the room for a moment. We (David Webb, Elaine
Blair) took loose tiles from the floor and threw them around.
The metal grill from a light was hit and came loose, we fixed
it and the tiles, just sitting down as McCrea returned. A

was 52 F in the last block of class (c. 2:30-3 pm), we sat
out on the cars in the back parking lot.
It appears Ralph and Mike hung around
the Beaconsfield golf course a bit around this time (?). [a
story about Mike and Ralph I will put here, though it may
be one year too early...one night they hid up in the branches
of a small tree on Lakeview near a bench in a small park.
A woman came and sat on the bench, and the two in the tree
began to shake the branches, thus scaring the poor woman half
