Brian, Abby and I saw 'Flesh Gordon' (porno sci-fi).
this summer Rob, Mich, Ralph? Mike? and I saw 'Monty Python
and the Holy Grail' at Dorval Cinema.
Brenda, Louise, a friend and I went swimming at the locks
at Pointe aux Cascades. Guy came later.
[we jumped off the locks into the greenest of water. I drove
Louise's friend to Montreal after].
1 Friday Michelle, Heather, others and I were
driving out to the locks to swim (heatwave 36íC). In Ste Anne's
as I passed a car, the front tire blew. The sound echoed off
the car and the girls thought I'd hit it. Lost a hubcap. A
guy on a motorbike stopped as we were changing the tire, helped
[I'm sure he thought we were a car load of young females only].
He told us about another place to swim. We followed him to
the Vaudreaul quarry. [The quarry was set back from the highway,
surrounded by woods and very private. The quarry itself was
flooded with water, which was relatively clean (there were
fish in it). At the time you could drive your car up a dirt
road and park, then walk through a hole cut in a fence. The
guy warned us there would be nude swimmers, and he was right.
Ah, the boys]
at the quarry. [On one of these days we were out in the middle,
many of us fighting over a log which people used to float
around on. At times I had only a toe on it, as there were
so many of us and the log was being pushed under the water.
No one believed I was in trouble. Lucky some people swam away
and I could rest. That was too close...]
Mich, Ralph, Mike and I went downtown to Cafe Prague coffee
house. The show was a satire of old radio shows
[Mike and I weren't really into this].
a Tangerene Dream record at Discus 'Rubycon' around now. Another
band I was listening to that summer was Lynyrd Skynyrd.(131)
and I drove up to Mt Tremblant park to visit Maggie and Heather,
who were camping there[we saw our
first Pacer car in the Autoroute. Drove down a dirt road into
the park. The girls were by a lake. It was a bit cool there.
We left by sundown].
this time I stopped eating hotdogs because Mike told me what
was in them...
131. There was also more forgettable music that is not worth
recording here. This entire period is confused, sad and decadent.
Ralph said he would have marked the end of the era in c. September
