July 30, 1967 Sunday
I've been really working hard
lately and its been extra hard because I have a bad cold. Ron has the
same thing and is taking an extra day off tomorrow. That makes it hard for
me but at least I earn some extra money.
With the cold its been murder
trying to sleep. I spend half the night awake and when I do sleep, my
dreams are so weird I'd almost rather stay awake.
I smoked the fried banana the
Donovan has a song called "Mellow Yellow" which is a satire
about the silliness of all the drug excitement these days. Just the
same, some kids at school are actually doing it so, being a blind follower, I
gave it a shot. All I got from it was an icky mess that gooed up my pipe.
An interesting thing happened
the other day at work. A dog was brought in and I noticed on the card
that the address was 1001 Olive Ave. Guess who lives there?
Right, the girl two houses down from me. The name of the family is
Nixon but in order to get more information I had to sneak to the front
office and look up their files. It seems they used to live in another
house in Coronado but it was probably just temporary. I'm almost certain
they're new in Coronado because they're not in the phone book or year book.
They also have a Florida license plate.
Anyway, I found out that her
dog is named Tom. Never know when that information might be useful.
August 4, 1967 - Friday
I've been working full time
lately and really enjoying it. I don't know how much longer I'll be
able to keep it up. I haven't done a thing else and things are
beginning to fall apart around here.
August 7, 1967 - Monday
Today I bought a clock radio
to replace my old alarm clock. Saturday it didn't go off and I was an
hour late for work. Needless to say, Ron was kind of mad and has cooled off
on being nice to me. He's still doing the same thing to Mary and after
two weeks he's still giving her the silent treatment. Things have been
pretty hard at the hospital so maybe after a while, things will calm down.
Barry was telling me that I'd
be the perfect person to live alone on a desert island. I guess I have
got a pretty rotten personality and its been bothering me a lot lately.
