stairway to a memory

recently my wife and i were driving along when the song “stairway to heaven” came on the radio.  as the song was playing my wife made a comment that “stairway…” ruined slow dancing.  her comment made me think….

1a. back in the day i am attending Hill Jr High in Long Beach, CA.  i went to my first dance one Friday nite in the gym.  there is a band playing cover tunes.  they play the Led Zepellin classic: “Stairway to Heaven.”  i dance with a girl i know, Kiki P.  when it comes to the rockin’ part of the song we both just stand there and watch the band.

1b. Kiki’s brother, Joe, used to collect money on Halloween for UNICEF.  unknowing to those who donate, he is actually collecting money for gas.

1c. Kiki is on her way to the Senior Prom.  she and her date stop at a convenience store.  the convenience store gets robbed while they are there.  fortunately no one was hurt.

m e m o r i e s .

“….and she’s buying a stairway to heaven.”

    Hey Papa H –

    Seems like more and more of the bloggers I regularly read are moving over to wordpress. I look foreward to exploring your new layout. Of course, as a devoted kickmonkey fan, I’ll keep reading where ever ya go. Doesn’t quite have the glamor of following the Grateful Dead from concert to concert, but these days I guess I have to appreciate simple pleasures.

    Blessings, friend.
