Our Sometimes Convoluted Expression of Love

“When we spoke by phone, I was somewhat despondent, I  just wanted to see him and knew he’d rather just stay home and work. But he came because he knew I was sad. Yet, I was sad anyway for him coming just because I wanted him to, I wanted him to want to be here.  This I told him,  he said in a way he wanted to, as it upset that him I was sad.  By the time he arrived  here that was all  forgotten.”


TED CELEBRATES HIS 50TH BIRTHDAY

From “My Life with the Chord Chemist”

“Soon Ted’s 50th birthday arrived. His preference was to have a memorable celebration for just the two of us. It was a mild September day, partly cloudy and perfect for walking in the city.  We were both energetic and our excitement grew stronger as we approached our destination; downtown Los Angeles.  Suddenly the buildings loomed up all around us.  We found a parking lot on Main St. and began our walk.  In one of the first stores we came to we purchased a disposable camera and inside of 10 minutes had taken many photos of fabulous old buildings.  We continued up Main St. and within a few blocks came to a store where a guitar and amplifier got Ted’s attention.  He spent almost 45 minutes there, decided he wanted them and left a deposit. “A red Squire Strat, just was in need of some love & since she sounded fantastic (on all 5 sounds) especially through that little tan K65 Dean Markley amp (I’ve wanted one ever since I heard a fellow named Chips in South Pasadena one Friday night in the late 1980’s when I bought a wonderful Panasonic 1431 HF VCR from him).”
