California 1974
Sunday, March 24

Mom Dan and mom got up early and shared a continental breakfast in the coffee shop. Bought paper. Attended Mass at St Mary���s Cathedral.

Laurie Hit 80,000 at 1:10pm.

Mom We visited Doug and Marilyn and had tortillas-tostadas-tacos-and refried beans. We split-boys to new house, girls to Grandma Arndt���s. Then we (girls) came home to find John ���laid out��� and in the bedroom. He broke his arm (mid shaft radius and ulna). So Dad, Doug, and mom took John to Bethel Hospital in Newton. Dr. Clausen set his arm and he stayed overnight. Hospital: 80 beds, immaculate. We will hope to leave tomorrow if all goes well.

Dark Lady

The fortune queen of New Orleans,
Was brushing her cat in her black limousine
On the backseat were scratches from
The marks of men her fortune she had won
Couldn't see through the tinted glass,
She said "Home James" and he hit the gas
I Followed her to some darkened room,
She took my money, she said "I'll be with you soon"

Dark Lady laughed and danced and lit the candles one by one
Danced to her gypsy music till her brew was done
Dark Lady played back magic till the clock struck on the twelve
She told me more about me than I knew myself

She dealt two cards, a queen and a three
And mumbled some words that were so strange to me
Then she turned up a two-eyed jack,
My eyes saw red but the card still stayed black
She said the man you love is secretly true
To someone else who is very close to you
My advice is that you leave this place,
Never come back and forget you ever saw my face


So I ran home and crawled in my bed,
I couldn't sleep because of all the things she said
Then I remembered her strange perfume,
And how I smelled it was in my own room!
So I sneaked back and caught her with my man,
Laughing and kissing till they saw the gun in my hand
The next thing I knew they were dead on the floor,
Dark Lady would never turn a card up anymore
