10, 1981 Friday From Gonzo!s Appalachian
Bob left early this morning. I was up and saw him off. I tried
to take an early swim, but a guy told me to get out - he was cleaning
the pool. I ate the rest of the donuts for breakfast along with bananas.
I followed the directions given earlier yesterday, and walked to the
post office to get my book stamped. While there, I met a girl who
wanted to become a lawyer. I told the lady at the PO to tell my parents
I was at the Hollins if they showed up some time inquiring about me.
As I walked back down the road, I ran into Larry and Cindy in Cindys
car. Ike, her dog, who was normally cream colored is now reddish brick
colored after rolling in the red clay in Georgia where she picked
up her Subaru Brat. They were heading to the PO so I told them to
stop by at the Hollins after they had taken care of all their business.
Larry took a room, and since I had checked out, I sat in the air conditioning
of his room for a while. I was driven back to the PO to post a
note for Mom and Dad after I became uneasy as the day progressed and
they had not arrived. They finally arrived at about six (estimate).
Had fish for supper at some restaurant with my parents and then we
rented a room at the Hollins since they needed rest before driving
back to Illinois. I spent the evening watching Deadmans
Curve, the story of Jan and Dean, in Larrys room, and
then told him I would see him in the morning.
