11-24-12 Up On The Roof

We had some fun in Boston/Newton.

Abigail slept in the attic, aka my old room.  She rummaged through my closet and came home with my old ripped up Korean vintage army jacket and a blue jean jacket. Sadly my leather jacket and buckskin fringe were worn down to the nub and thrown away years ago. There was also a vest she did not take. She kept looking at it in amazement and asking me if I really wore “that”. Of course I did. It’s really too bad none of the shirts survived…

She also raided my album collection and among other wonders came up with “The History of the Grateful Dead Vol 1 (Bear’s Choice), The Warner/Reprise 1969 Songbook and The Warner/Reprise 1969 Record Show. These albums include The Fugs, The Mothers of Invention, Tiny Tim, Van Dyke Parks, Joni Mitchell, etc.

We looked in the attic half of the attic and came up with a treasure trove of pictures of my grandparents and my mother and her sisters as kids and teens.

Her finally request…lower the ladder attached to the ceiling and let’s go up on the roof, which we did about an hour before we headed back to NYC.
