I have come a long way, and it has been a rocky road getting here. I was reminded of that today when a friend who visited us last month sent some photos that he took. Yikes! I look like ever burned out Texan you have ever seen in a movie.
Here is one of me as a world famous actor who played across from greats like Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson. Well, truthfully, playing across from might be a stretch. I had walk-ons and was listed in the cast of characters. But it was a great time of parties, girls and free wheeling dope.
Unfortunately, I shortly ended up here, broke, broken, and confused. It was a long trudge out and I met many other broke and broken people coming out of the confusion of the 1960’s, and honestly, I became a better person for it. Still it is not a recommended path. Some didn’t make it out.
So I was really shocked when this old buzzard fell out of the pack of pictures in the envelope. How the mighty have fallen. Girls don’t vie with each other for a chance in bed with this one. They just offer to carry the groceries out to the car for him. I look like ever burned out old Texan that I have ever met, but with more whiskers than most.
No more wild parties with Angelica Houston, Dennis Hopper, Bob Dylan and even once with Elvis.
My nights are like this at 8 o’clock. The nightly treats, followed by the evening pills and turning on the electric blanket and one last check of my emails.
My mutts. Annie-Annie, ‘Becca da Beagle, Tic the trouble maker and Jenna, the moose.
Thank you, Don!
