1978....WEST, TEXAS..KINFOLK, KINFOLK, EVERYONE'S KINFOLK
I moved to West when I came back to Texas. Thought about going back to Ausin, but don't like going back..and I had fallen in love with West and had come down to visit almost every weekend to party with my step-sister DH..who you would have loved .she was younger than me and we were not related by anything other than the marriage of her mother to my fathe
who had met in the hospital when their spouses were dying..My Dad's wife had died from liver desease and DH's daddy had died from complicatins from having some sort of cripling desease...they died days apart and while my daddy and Irmatheworm were visiting and spending time in the waiting room, lunch room, etc..they fell in love...or at least Daddy did...I was never sure about Irmatheworm..she had been married 3 times before Daddy and when he died she married 2 times more..But I acquired a new family and more cousins, then you could shake a stick at..and for some reason..they all accepted me like I really was family..and even after Daddy died and the tie wasn't there and even after DH died(alergic reaction) I am still kinfolk to them.. One of the cousins named his first son after my first son and I am his godmother..They all claim me...I only claim them when I want to ..This is when I met all the people I know today...David(my best friend), the Marek family, the Maler family, the Hollingsworth's, the Sparkman's(my first and last serious romance after Chuck...don't EVEN ask about that fucker),the Kolar's, the Adamson's,the Archers,the Ashley's, the Young's,the Rodarte's,the Dulock's(both branches)the Harris's,the Holecek's,Jupe's,Oden's,the Kocurek's,the Moore's,the Reed's,the Payne's,the Edward's,the Hand's(james the singer), the Wolf's and the Favor's....Been drunk with each and everyone of them...remind me to tell the story about when Mike A. cousin Ashley and I went to Mexico....ahhh geez....
So anyhow ..I'm back in Texas reacquainting myself with binge drinking, weeks of sobriety and then drunk again...nothing I would want to write about...except for the time I almost got arrested because I kept telling the deputy he had a ugly fucking hat...my brother-in-law saw that the deputy was getting pissed and was a nano second from hauling my ass off,and kept telling me to shut up or I was going to get arrested...I said :'why would they arrest me...? he's the one with the ugly fucking hat.'...Shorty finally picked me up and shoved me into my apt. and shut the door on me...while I am yelling thru the door.."someone should arrest him for bad taste in ugly fucking hats.someone call the fashion police..I want to report a crime..ugly fucking hat in progress.."..I never did know when to give up..I saw the cop the next day and I told him..."I'm sorry I made fun of your hat last night when I was drunk....but I'm sober now .and you know what? The hat is still fucking ugly.."
Mean while back in the world...Pope Paul VI dies and is succeeded by Pope John Paul I..who lived about a month and then we got Pope John Paul II...I refered to them as Pope John Paul the short and Pope John Paul the long...

Reverend Jim Jones of the 'Lets all die together church of God' convienced his followers to commit mass sucide in Jonestown, Guyana....and as for music...some of it was pretty good..but some of it sucked all the air out of the room..this is when I really started to get back into country music'cause it sure as hell was a lot better than some of the shit I found my kids listening to..."Rat Trap' by the Boomtown Rats,'Take a chance on me'by ABBA,'Rasputin', River of Babylon,Mary's Boy Child/Oh My Lord' by Bonnie M...This is also the time when we had 2 movies that changed your music listening..'Grease and Saturday Night Live'......It brought us...'Night Fever,how deep is your love,and staying alive by the Bee Gees, 'You're the one that I want and Summer night by Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.'Grease' by Franki Valli,'Greased Lightning'by John Travolta,'Shadow Dancing'by Andy Gibb.'Boogie-oogie oogie'by A Taste Of Honey, 'Kiss you all over'by Exile, and 'Le Freak' by Chic..'You needed me' by Anne Murray, 'Last Dance'by Donna Summer,'Do ya think I'm sexy?'by Rod Stewart.'Always and forever'by Heat Wave,'Can't Smile without you'by Barry Manilow,'With a little luck'by Paul McCartney and wings,'Missing you'by the Stones,'Three Times a lady'by the Commadores,'You don't bring me flowers'by B.Streisand and Neil Diamond,'Boogie Shoes'by K.C. and the Sunshine Band.One of my favorite songs'Werewolves of London'by Warren Zevon.'Eagles by ABBA,'Follow you, Follow me'by Genesis,

Meanwhile I was listening to Johnny Paycheck sing'Take this job and shove it',Waylon and Willie sang about not letting your babies grow up to be cowboys and Emmylou Harris, who has the most beautiful voice sang 'Two more bottles of wine.'.Willie had nothing but Blue Skies, and Waylon had always been crazy, but it kept him from going insane...and Hank Williams, Jr. fought the law and the law won...So all in all the year was a push....ahhh, fuckme till I rodeodeohde, bordering on the insane...thanks jerry jeff)
