There's really just one writer, and that's pauljeep. He drops by occasionally with a new entry about his long-ago counterculture life up in Norton at Earth Peoples Park. Check out the link for more info.

...... i heard the news today ,,,, ... in the middle of summer during in the early seventies ,, walter cronkite's daughter was hanging out in "earth people's park"
everyone knew her as nancy... she was a real party girl. she's trippin' out one nite ,, and realize's she need's more cash,, so she walks over to the customs house at the border patrol and starts insisting that they cash a check for her. she's ranting & raving ; " don't you know who i am ? " ,,, waving her checkbook , and all other i.d papers ,,,, " all i want is a thousand dollars " ,,,, the customs men are trying to be nice to her ,, explaining that they are not a bank ,, and they don't keep that kind of money around anyway..
so then she says; " could you cash a check for five hundred ?

.... school's out .... after i'd been staying at lynn's apt. in newport for over a week, i'm in the living room one afternoon and hear some arguing noise thru the window coming from the back parking lot. her apartment is upstairs, so as i look out the window, i see some old man yelling at a skinny young guy with long hair. then the guy runs away,... ten minutes later,, he comes upstairs looking for lynn. this guy looks just like '' alice cooper '' ,, rite down to the cheeks and lips,,,, bobby walker and lynn knew each other for a long time,,,, they were both into crystal meth ,,,, but i didn't know that yet. bobby's father owned a car dealership in St.J. ,,, bobby was a nice guy,, but always getting into trouble. his father had just given him an oldsmobile vista cruiser station wagon. it was dark green,, with a third back seat,, and i believe 13 widows with a raised rear roof.. that's what the fight was about in the parking lot... bobby parked in a spot before the old man could ,,,, we drove that car all summer,, everywhere we could,,,, a few years agoe ,, n.y billy told me that bobby O.D. years earlier in lynn's apt... they found him in the bathtub..... ...... when i was a child,,, beatnicks were the thing,,, '' maynard g. krebs '' --- W O R K ! ! ! ---- and the kids listened to elvis,,,, in my yout ,,,, the older teenagers were hippies,,, with long hair and rock & roll,,, i understand every generation has to take '' it '' one step further ,,, everywhere i goe now ,,, kids are covered with tattoos,,, i know it's a free country,,
but when it comes to sticking needles in my body,,,, i'd rather stick with rolling paper....

Default .... and to all a good nite ! ...

.... speaking of free choice ,, of the many few times i was able to live with a girlfriend ,,, most of them came with their own luggage ,,, some had one child ,,, and some others had two ,, it didn't matter to me... they were all good kids and i treated them as nice as possible.... ...to this day,, most of them still keep in touch with me ,,, sending me christmas and birthday gifts ,, and other stuff like that. .. as far as i know,, mostly all the kids i knew have grown up to have lovely families of their own ,, and i'm happy for them...
... sometimes,, while i was with the mothers,, or even with the single girls ,, they would tell me that they were pregnant . it didn't bother me.. in a way,,, i was glad,,,, i can remember the first time ,,, up in norton ,, and within a week or so after finding out ,,, she had me take her to burlington for an abortion. .... i borrowed albier's yellow volkswagon for the ride... i didn't want her to end the pregnancy ,,, but it seemed like i had no choice in the matter.... so it goes ! ! ! ... years later ,, i was with a cute little irish nurse ,, over six years ,, she got knocked up twice,,, when i met her,, she already had a baby boy,,, the kid was growing up with me,, i took him to school every day,, and stuff like that. .. twice i begged her to have the baby,,, but both times,, she outvoted me.... and then ,, years later,,, i was with an other female for a few years,,, again, two different times, she couldn't handle having more children ,,, so again,,, i get stuck paying for things that i didn't want done......

Too bad you couldn't have been a single parent for a decade and a half! It would have helped you get over your sadness about this.
