Feb 20 Get key in Gardner. Boston. Check in at Bradford c 12 Noon. Wearing tan slacks, brown turtleneck, suede coat, bayberry. Visit Naked. Talk to Cashmere who hurt her knee. Loud barmaid tells me I look like a German and salutes me with a "Seig Heil" all day [I later find out that she is Jewish and that she does this also to Ana, the nice little blonde girl from Frankfurt]. Visit MacCormack successfully. Lunch at MacDonald's on Washington Street. Visit Red at Exeter Place on postal business. Return to Naked. Talk music with Cashmere. Ask the boss what to do about reefer smokers in the men's room. He says to tell management on duty. See Gisele come and go - there seems to be a pattern here. Sheena dancing outback runs off stage when someone throws a beer bottle. Faith and Alex bring her back out triumphantly after the assailant leaves. We applaud her. Justine dances and comes to see me afterwards. We spend afternoon talking of Odin, Norse Destiny, Hermann Goehring, etc. She sings in a "Gothic Punk" group, lives with Witches, and is going to Berlin in the Fall. When she dances again some bums, probably merchant marine fudgepackers, insult her. Oh, if I could only decapitate them and throw their heads up on the stage at her feet. She could boot them around. As it is I settle for glaring at them. They stop the insults. Later I shoulder check one of them, football style. He timidly mumbles "excuse me". Visit Jake's for prime rib. Return to Naked. Take Justine to China Pearl for Seafood Wor Bah. See Roxanne again and am beginning to appreciate her in the same way as I do Kim. See Katy outback showing a different personality with a Chinese guy and glancing nervously at me. Katy comes around wanting Champagne. I give her my phone number and tell her I am waiting for Linda. She tells me about her new kitten. I tell her about Pomeranians and the Samoyed I saw in Keene. When she asks about drinks again I tell her again to call me and she storms off turning to stick out her tongue at me twice. Have another brief but stimulating conversation with my most Elfish of Lindas. Retire about 10:30 PM.

Feb 21 Arise late. Poached and bacon. Wearing tan slacks, pink stripped shirt, suede coat, bayberry, visit Naked. Ask Malika for a drink and have to wait, but too long. Leave c 3:00 PM and stop in Concord where cute girl serves me grilled cheese and buttercrunch frappe.

Chicken Polynesian at China Pearl. Gisele with nice tan and Rhinestone bikini. Good old boys bring her a huge stuffed elephant. Pass by Katy who keeps turning to look at me. She talks with boss. Sit near her outback. Ignore her up front as she tries to sound grown up for my benefit talking at bouncer about Greenwich Village. Leave before she dances. Oh, the bliss of the Harem [All this really means is that the sheer availability of pretty girls makes it easier to turn away from Katy even though I love her more than anyone I have ever known or will ever know. This is one of the hardest things I have ever done. She is simply too young for me. It is also a little bit doubtful as to whether I could have won her heart anyway].

I finally tell her "I'm going to find a way to get you off my case once and for all. As far as I'm concerned you are nothing but a piece of garbage". This seems to do the trick [...at first. In retrospect, I should have spoken less harshly, but much sooner]. Alex unfortunately cannot be separated from this poor soul. I conclude that she must have a rotten streak herself. Sheena comes around and we talk. She leaves in outrage when I won't buy her a drink. Having seen Raven dance outback. Finding her friendly I buy her a couple. We talk about black roses.

July 26 c 7:20 PM a little self-indulgence. The Legion of Ragnarok (LR) will, in this early period, be concerned with development of martial prowess among the members of the OY. Another order, known as known as The Sentinels of Thor (ST), will ultimately be the coordinating inner circle of the LR. The ST, will for now, be just a secret appendage of the OY dedicated specifically to dealing with problems associated with unjust personal insult or injury to any member of the WLO - problems which might elsewhere be deemed "trivial" in terms of the larger objectives. This specific activity of the ST will remain always totally secret. A special corps of highly trained atavistic berserkers will be designated Werewolves (WW). I will preside over the ST as Grand Reaper, a title known only among the ST, until I can delegate this position to a worthy individual. [Skull-headed scepter in my sanctum bore the letters GST - Grandreaper Sentinels of Thor ~ 8/28/12]. I will remain Grandmaster of the OY until retirement, designated exoterically as "Director". I will then appoint my successor. With reference to current political realities, in order to make the best use of existing momentum, the OY will attempt always to further all political programs when the ends specifically are in keeping with natural law. The position of ST Grandreaper will be by appointment of the Grandmaster of the OY and will be commonly known also as "Director". The leader of the WW will also be appointed by the OY Grandmaster. The OY will closely monitor all government processes to develop activities that will help natural law to prevail. Libertarian leadership in all areas will realized to the utmost degree possible at any given time, if not by election then through infiltration or clandestine overstructure. There will be a silver and onyx ST ring. A ring with Silver World Tree on Lapis Lazuli field will eventually be available to all OY. A gold, red, and silver insignia will be awarded to Werewolves. There will be appropriately emblazoned pistols and daggers with inlays for OY and ST. It should be appreciated that much of this reflects the unrelenting optimism inspired by very high ideals. Not every goal here is necessarily expected to actually manifest. Many highly ambitious things are spoken of "as though possible". It is, we feel, better to try, than to do nothing [In this way many ideas from this point on have been conceptualized and reacted to emotionally on an ongoing basis as an exercise in personal growth, but always to the end of furthering Libertarian Revolution].

July 28 "Behold the gleaming swords of free men in the North. Out of their anguish, of necessity, is born the duties and thereby the characteristics of the Legion of Ragnarok".

July 30 Visit Greenfield Registry and make it to dentist by 2:05 PM. Lunch at MacDonald's behind Caldor. Check out Kiron at Leechemere where I see a Goddess vaguely like Debbie Seller. Mass Pike to town. Visit Peretti's as I so often do. There is a small park being constructed in front. Pick up half pint of Southern Comfort which I enjoy at Bradford. Wearing jeans, blue stripe shirt, and Bravura c 7 PM visit Naked where I am stunned and saddened to learn that my friend and business hero Mel died recently. His son Jeff and I go into office and halfway through my relating of the transgressions of Lisa he interrupts suggesting that I simply avoid the back bar where she is working. I agree and order a grasshopper noticing a certain very beautiful old witch, Liz, who just keeps scowlin at me. As in past, she makes coital movements to music. Is this enteasenment? When I look up at DJ, I see that it's Autumn Blue who gives me a surprisingly abrupt, warm, and sanguine smile. I exchange greetings with Leigh who is back from Florida. Melissa comes by and I promise to buy her a drink tomorrow. Visit China Pearl for pork fried rice. Return. Buy drinks for Jazz who is going to be an actress. See Autumn Blue dance. Outback Nancy tells me Katy is married and is now a summer camp councelor. Watching Jazz suddenly I see Lindamere. She tells me Mel died of throat cancer. We then talk of enemas and orgasms. Jazz reappears but I drink with Linda all night. When Linda dances I stay outback to see Gisele who has a new curly brown hairdo which looks rather commonplace even on her. In between I visit Mardigras looking for Terry. We are interrupted by a loud barmaid who is almost unintelligible. Talk with Louise.

July 31 Awake with terrible hangover. Breakfast at Matinee where waiter has dyed hair brown but for one blonde streak. Wearing jeans, red stripped with white shirt, and Bravura, wait while Krishnas set up and finally play, all the while ducking flocks of pigeons. Check out investment silver on Bromfield Street. After visiting Wiener's discuss the forging of the ST ring of power at E B Horn and Co. Bratwurst and Piņas at Jake's. No sooner am I seated at Naked then see scowlin witch, then Lisa comes charging to the fore like a bull rhinoceros, emphasis on bull. I say Hi and she bellows, her lower self vomits out it's devolutionary collectivist hatred in torrents. I notice Jeff coaching me not to answer her. She walks back yelling and gesticulating. They argue, she leaves, he calls me over and tells me that I can't be anywhere in the club when she is working. Her low power syndrome it seems has a strong foundation. Visit 66. Tom is now manager and bouncer on Wednesdays. Tomi Love comes around with the usual propositioning. Catrina dances. Maria dances. Catrina comes around and when I take a booth, sits next to me, and eventually makes me horny. A nigress comes and sits at my booth eating a smelly hamburger. Jamie and Carol join Tom at the bar. Later Tom runs some big stupid boy in red shorts out. 7PM Re-enter Naked. Melissa comes over. I buy her a drink. I explain about Lisa. We see Sharon who looks very good even though she has dyed her hair. Melissa goes to dance. I see Roxanne and tell barmaid I want to sit with her but Jazz comes over and cuddles up to me [She's 22 and becomes Katy's friend before she quits]. When Jazz dances Lindamere comes over but I leave to meet Ed at Jake's c 8 PM. We talk, then visit Mardigras. For dinner at China Pearl we enjoy pork strips, Teriyaki, and squab which the waiter informs us is a pigeon. We then visit the Naked where Ed, who has a bad cocaine problem, makes an ass of himself on several occasions during the evening. A sexy new blonde dances and Ed throws bottle caps at her. I keep at him to stop, but no. Cheyenne dances and is the first I have seen to smile on Ed. We see Autumn Blue looking exquisitely white and shapely in bra and panties above in dic-jockey booth. Jazz dances and reprimands Ed for a bottle cap. Roxanne dances giving Ed the masturbation sign "for later". Ed, who wants to check out some videos, leaves while Hiedi who seems to have been favorably influenced by Katy in style, dances. Autumn Blue dances in lily white voluptuous splendor - I obey Nature's commands. I then see Jazz outback. She catches me with an awkward look on my face while she dances. Then Roxanne dances giving me a puzzled look. My obesity is not helping with all this. Since I moved to Windingbrook I have gone from 185 to 210 pounds. No land to tend and restaurant size meals does this combined with childhood habit of eating all the food on my plate. 1:50 AM I charge out into torrential downpour. Water in gutter is like a mountain stream in spring. Cab takes we to Commons garage. On way back I come down hill into rotary in Cambridge. It has become a lake. I avoid sunken cars making it to dry ground and go up road wrong way to get to lane heading over bridge. As I predicted rain has diminished as I head west. Get fuel in Concord and make Keene by 4 AM.

Aug 19 At 12:20 PM. Complete uniform refinements - Liber Heraldicae II.

Aug 20 At 1:20 AM. [more self-indulgence] It occurs to me again that one should educate another about how the world works only when the other has proven himself worthy of not being hurt by his own ignorance. 4:49 PM. It should be mentioned that before retiring early this morning I resolve that a gold Goat of Thor will go on a silver Ten Rayed Star Pendant. Appropriate rituals of presentation will occur. Founding ceremonies for the Special Orders for Valor and WW will be performed in the near future as will transition ceremonies for my friends Charlene Bates and Mel Horowitz. Official founding ceremonies for the LR and ST will be much later, even though many activities begin much sooner. Once I have designated my successor in the ST, all members of the ST but myself may carry skull canes. Such cane should conceal weapon of choice - sword, dagger, blackjack, gun, whip, burning devise. When, and only when, Libertarian rule prevails throughout the entire World will the image of the Goat of Thor be replaced by that of Yggdrasil in the TRS pendants. When that time comes, the old representations,utilizing warlike imagery will be displayed in a great hall as glorious trophies of honor. At this point a reasonable balance of Good and Evil will exist on earth.

Aug 21 At 1:39 AM. Finish basic refinement on uniforms. Navy can have dress whites. All branches can have dress blacks. TRS pendants for uniform will have 418. Goat of Thor version is for use with tuxedo. Aft. Visit Newbury, Grantham, where blonde fixes cheese dog, Washington, Windsor, and Stoddard. Have pork rib and fettucinne at Colony Mill.

Aug 28 Meet Kim from Sherbrooke Quebec.

Aug 29 Visit E Washington and Hillsboro Center for the first time. Visit Henniker. Arrive at Hoppington Faire c 1:45 PM. Under pines, see livestock of all types. Sheep and goats being washed are raising an awful fuss, emitting unbelievable noises. Enjoy peanut-caramel apple before walking the midway. Here I am delighted by endless representations of Death and Satanism. This marks quite an increase lately and is mostly associated with music. I have always liked to see expressions of life's most basic dramas portrayed with Medieval simplicity. There are wonderful food smells in the air and especially burning hardwood. In woods, see fine collection of Death oriented jewelry. Much Nazi influence. Calligrapher can do my New Aeon sign once I have measurements. On way out buy ST type pin I saw earlier. Ones with red eyes look more regal, but less orthodox [I later come to realize that the skull with gules eyes can represent illumination by a candle within and hence, Thor's Jack-O-Lantern].

c August 27 New hostess teases at Windingbrook. c 6 PM Nice smile from Kim at Idlenot.

Aug 30 Like girl in Windingbrook dining room.

In a nick of time I find a Gulf Station where I have the first bottle of Moxie in years. Chap at station tells me about the mild weather here the past few years.

She says Malika and Modesty have not been around for a long time. Sit with Roxanne finally. We are both tongue-tied. Gisele returns and is goofing with me and with the other girls quite a bit. Says that Cheyenne, Brittany, and her do threesomes. Says also that she is retiring in two weeks to Florida. Will visit New England only occasionally, then only Cape Cod. Roxanne returns. She and Gisele kissing. I get nifty thrill having them both kiss me on the cheek at the same time. One on each side. Feels like electricity. Gisele's retiring, to me marks the end of a great era of glamour in Boston and is a bad omen for the future of the Combat Zone. These truly are the last days of Pompeii. She says she would like a pet flying-fox bat and would name him Demitrius. In my best "down East" accent I relate the "Story of Roger" for her. She enjoys it a good deal [so much that I write it down some years later. See next page].

Pouty looks from Katy. Tom puts up balloons outback and up front, but things are so slow I leave c 11:30 PM. Stop to pat an elephant out front of Bradford. Girl in elevator gives me a balloon.

Lyndonville

Mar 4 Visit mansion in Lyndonville. Opulent but houses packed around it like sardines.

Sometime hereabouts, in a place I will not name, I see something that still puzzles me. One night I am awakened by a smoke detector alarm. When I investigate I look through the window and see a chap up on a chair trying to deactivate the smoke alarm. The door is ajar and there is the smell of burned cookies. The room is smoky. There are two people lying on beds who couldn't possibly be asleep because of the intense noise. I watch far two or three minutes. Nobody is talking and the people on the beds do not move a muscle. I go away for five minutes. When I return the scene is identical. Nobody has moved. The next morning I see two guys in plain clothes carry out two large items which look roughly like human bodies with a plastic garbage bag pulled over each end. These are thrown into the dumpster which is right outside the door. I never speak of this to anyone.

Mar 17 c 10:30 AM Mary Stripinis calls telling me Blue Angels have decided to do balancing from the original listed billing. Moral - penguins work, but take pictures in the first place. Aft. Visit Henniker. Lisa has graduated to bookkeeping. Visit Concord branch and PO.

Mar 18 Visit Dr. Oliver and find out my throat is dried out from too many menthol cough drops. Look at snow shoes. Finally get my zoom lens.

Mar 19 c 4:55 PM In reflecting upon Ed, I predict his destruction through cocaine use eventually. He doesn't hear anything bad about the worst of drugs. My interest in Debbie during this period is great, but it could never work, she's too temperamental.

Mar 22 Visit Daniel Webster. Nashua Arts and Science Center proves to be rather small. Visit Clydesdale Hamlet, tour Anhieser Brewery. Check in at Bradford. Visit Naked Club. See new blonde Marylyn who resembles Allison Parks, but not as tall. See Wilheimena who resembles girl on Blind Faith album. Visit Jake's for prime rib. Back to Naked. Eva serves drinks to the Lindasnake and I. She has not yet immigrated, and has been an illegal alien for some time. She tells me that Katy is now working with retards - pity. Apparently Katy and her cab-driver husband live rather separate lives and sleep with others. Someone has seen Gisele dancing in Florida. Malika has been around as recently as two weeks ago. Modesty went to NY, I will assume upstate, to get away from "too many greasy people in Boston." Dorrie is now a hair stylist in Kenmore Square. Meanwhile as we talk, I miss Silver on back stage. Then Linda chases after nice blonde who is going to sell her the costume she is wearing. Linda says it's light for traveling. She is dancing in Victoria this summer. Jazz, who is not in training for opera but who is merely "theatrical", comes singing Hello to everyone. Silver dances on the front stage. Linda is expecting a fellow who is going to sell her some hashish. All at once a terrible fight breaks out in front of our table and a boy has to be carried out, belly down. During this Linda jumps up and runs away. When she returns she delights me with her approval of Ferdinand Marcos's wife's having bought 800 pairs of shoes, etc. with American aid that was supposed to go to poor people. "I would do that" she says. Just before midnight she has to visit elsewhere and Cheyenne comes on again as police girl in leather with handcuffs and club, this time with blue police beacon. Hydie comes over during this and tells me about sandwich dancing in Florida and touch dancing somewhere. She has worked at Alex's in Stoughton and at the Golden Banana in Peabody. Cheyenne finishes, getting into a slavish thing with the handcuffs. I see Silver once again, contemplating a very sly remark made earlier about her buxomness, and retire.

Mar 23 Breakfast at Jay's, and then a cream doughnut and coffee at the Bradford. c Noon. Gwenyth is on first. Cute brunette with Jeanie Convey haircut out back. Nancy and I talk awhile. She tells me wonderful story about a fight she had with Katy - how Katy threw her hands in the air boiling with frustration. Nancy says club changed from Jerome's when Mel bought it from the Venus brothers about twelve years ago back when she started. I don't think it was that long ago. She thinks Louie Venus may still own a part of it. I mention that she, Debbie, Cheyenne, and I are the only people left from the old days now that Dorrie is gone. Visit China Pearl. Enjoy Zombie, Jimmy Chin's private recipe, and Subgum Har Kew. Return to Naked. Nancy tells me Dorrie and she worked at the Carribe Lounge before the Naked and that Dorrie is now working on Newbury Street somewhere, not Kenmore Square. Return via Rte 119 in partial darkness. Pity because there are many nice old houses through here. I see a completely round colonial. Truly the scenic route.

Mar 26 Gets so hot in afternoon that I have to use air conditioner in room.

Mar 27 Call King Covey about purchase of mansion in Littleton.

Apr 4 After much figuring finally pick up vitamins. Visit Henniker where I get a little smart-mouth good advice from Christina. Visit Concord. Whore comes on to me in sandwich shop, but girl behind counter reprimands her. Rains on way back. Eve. See Cheyenne on TV. She is now doing sex therapy talk show on WBCN. I'm proud of her, and yet during all these years I never bought her a drink because she isn't quite my type - happily married anyway.

Apr 7 Sign sales agreement on Littleton mansion.

Apr 10 King Covey calls to tell me of Dr. Ross's rejection of agreement. Eve. Chuck calls to say Dr. Collings will talk finance.

Feb 11 Over the past two weeks I have heard a political candidate promise the "investigation of Witchcraft and cults" and have seen three "700 Club" programs trying to discredit others. The first was aimed at "cleaning up" the game "Dungeons and Dragons" by removing such occult ingredients with "power" as the Pentagram and Thaumaturgic Circle. The second program I didn't watch. The third featured a paranoid of the drug variety who believed that he was the Antichrist and could rule the world through heavy metal music, bun who decided to become a slave of Jesus instead. The Antichrist, of course, is a movement, not an individual, although it may find personification in certain key individuals at different times. The music is merely a celebration of it all.

Apr 13 Visit with Clayton Placey on way North. No financing on Governor Philips Mansion. Visit Boera Mansion. Setting in much nicer with snow melted. Eat egg salad sandwich while lady tells me about mansion up in the hills and a ski center for sale near it. Go up and see unbelievable huge Federal with pillars, high on hill with 360 degree mountain views. Approach is tree lined along ridge. Feeling of being back 100 years in time. Barns connected by stables about 300 feet long and finer than most houses.

Darien Inn Barn

Up the road whole complex of buildings - The Darien Inn. One brick one strikes me especially.

Apr 14 WW III begins. Last week the Russian Mediterranean fleet puts to sea because our own Mediterranean fleet has been cruising near Libya and Mr. Reagan has been saber-rattling all week. c 7:22 PM Turn on TV. We have just made an air strike against Libya from our base in England, flying around France and Spain.

Apr 15 Colonel Khadafi's one year old baby daughter was killed yesterday. Russia has canceled our July summit. Parliament is raising Hell with Mrs. Thatcher, of whom I am personally very proud. Khadafi's whereabouts is uncertain. Afternoon: Anti-aircraft fire in Tripoli. A suspected coup is under way. Eve: Members of Abunidal's group proclaim "You will witness things so big that even Reagan will be amazed by their magnitude and cruelty."

Apr 16 Meet with Mr. Dunn, the President at First Northern, who approves me for a mortgage without committee, on the Collings property.

Apr 17 Khadafi surfaces, calling Mr. Reagan a war criminal. More terrorism. Abunidal is pictured an TV, and makes Khadafi look like a choir boy. Coup is suppressed in Libya.

Apr 19 Visit Collings property alone. Climb little mountain. This property is very much like Ravenhurst except more private and the view is better. Visit mansion in Littleton. Am far less impressed with interior, but am delighted to see snow capped Mt. Lafayette out library and tower windows. One can ski up here every month except August in Tuckerman's Ravine. It is a very hot day and I have room here for a small cornfield. Dr. Ross hikes the price up $25, 000.

Apr 20 Have nice talk with Richard Yerkes about purchase of Darien Inn and ski touring center. David Drew, owner of the forty two room Darling Estate, will call tomorrow night. Call Otis Goss to finalize purchase of Boera mansion.

Apr 21 3:58 PM Just conclude conversation with David Drew. Now piecing together all my information, a brief history:

Burklyn Hall

Burklyn Hall

The mansion, Burkelyn Hall, was built by Elmer Darling from 1904 to 1909. It has Forty two rooms and a huge indoor riding ring, hippodrome, with fourteen stables. It was sold about nine years ago for $135,000 to Marshall Thurber who grew up locally, went west, got rich as an attorney, and returned. He also bought the Darien Inn from Richard Yerkes. He set up a conference center, ski touring operation, and "Millionaire Maker School". He claims he can give a business college education in five weeks. He borrowed three million from friends and students and blew one and a half in the stock market. After filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy he returned the Darien Inn to Mr. Yerkes c 1979?. Five years ago he sold Burkelyn to David Drew for $210,000. Mr. Drew wants $800,000 to $1,000,000 with eighty five acres. Mr. Yerkes wants $1,250,000 with six hundred a fifty acres. I want the whole thing, but can't swing it. End of story.

These properties are expected to skyrocket in price because Burke Mountain is being sold. Man who owns it went into deal with two guys who were going to develop it for skiing. He held back information about his situation, the deal fell through, and they developed Mt. Ascutney instead. Later it will be too late.

Apr 22 Visit Debbie at Cafe Guerriero. Meet ultra slim, firm breasted, raven-haired witch. Return for over priced swordfish about 4:45 PM. She is married. It is at times frustrating not being married, but probably less so than being married.

Apr 24 Prudently sign agreement on the Park Avenue mansion. This is one of the finest houses in New England. It is brick with granite windowsills, twenty three leaded windows, curved glass in tower windows. Inside: Baroque Corinthian columns, beveled glass mirrors, acanthus leaves carved on beams, annunciator in kitchen with buzzers in every room, lincrusta, ballroom with chandeliers, hand painted Delft tiles form a wainscot plus there's a bidet in upstairs bath. Sixteen rooms in all with three room servants quarters for a total of 4,950 square feet. This was built by a wealthy railroad magnate [Later while doing my genealogy I find out that I am distantly related to this individual by any of three Spooner-Quimby marriages]. After the years at Ravenhurst, village life will seem strange, but such mountains I do possess. c 3:15 PM Calculate that I had just fifty nine days left of outdoor work to be done over four year period at Ravenhurst. The work would have proceeded thusly:

Fall 1984 5 days, Prune from grove to fork.

Fall 1985 5 days, Prune from start to grove, 6 days, cut up piles near grove, and 2 days, gather wood in west.

Fall 1986 4 days, Cut obtrusive live trees and stack for nuclear winter, 14 days, Clear ridge.

Fall 1987 7 days, Thin live trees and stack nuke wood. 14 days, Prune the Ballduckinglands.

Probably I would have gathered wood in the east at this point if necessary.

Apr 28 Ready for Boston, I reach Henniker only to find that it's Fast Day. Return.

Apr 29 Morn. Arrive at Henniker to see big sexy girl with sexy buttocks glancing over her shoulder at me while sexily slouching against front desk. Visit Bank Commission and Department of Revenues in Concord. Decide to skip Art Museum. Discuss Al Capone with bartender over Bratwurst at Jake's. There has been no Weeping Willie or any live music since January. Notice bench near window. He says it's been there for years. Visit 66. Meet cute barmaid Marie. See Christie, who has begun to develop a greasy look to compliment her ever increasing obesity. So sleepy looking. Maria comes on stage and I notice she seems skinnier. Get talking motel business with young sharpie and miss her final song. After sharpie leaves, I ask barmaid if I pay my respects on a few occasions, will she go out to dinner. She says maybe. Visit Mardigras, spilling a Sombrero on my trousers as I enter the men's room. Clean up and return to the 66. Maria comes over. She tells me that nobody likes Lisa and that she thinks Jeff is an asshole. She won't say why. She turns out to be a complete emotional cripple filled with low self-importance This is too bad because she is otherwise a very desirable girl. I coolly and knowingly listen to her immature, massive, drunken over-reactions and vicious raving. See her conferring with Christie just after. Also before? c 6 PM Visit China Pearl for Combination Platter. c 7:15 PM Enter Naked where I am accosted by Lisa who directs barmaid not to serve me. Lisa heads for office. I leave and go in back door to see new tall skinny blonde Sharron dancing. Lisa leaves through back with some guy, but doesn't see me. I go up front. Gwenyth enters. We say Hello. Then the weakling Maria, having finished her stint at the Rotten Old Pig Club, enters and is greeted by Marilyn with some fanfare. Have nice conversation with good-hearted barmaid Fran. I tell her about Lisa. Fran turns out to be sister of Lorraine, another good-hearted barmaid I have been friends with for some years. Liz has returned from NY. Pouty Katy is still working, within past two weeks, but only occasionally. c 10 PM Return.

May 9 Leave c 10:30 AM. Get box in St. Johnsbury. Have lunch in Lyndon. Arrive at 19 Park Avenue at 12 Noon. Finally we get terms settled and both sign sales agreement. Otis leaves. I tour house. Dick and I discuss furnishings. I have just bought one of the finest houses in the world. Visit Wayside and order bed. c 5:40 Leave and make it to Keene in an hour and 50 minutes.

May 16 Henniker. Merge two accounts into one at a higher rate of interest.

May 20 Back about two or three weeks ago I have, on a cold day, my annual premonition that this coming winter will be severe. Last year's prediction came early, June or July, but is usually late August or September, and was correct - mild. I have not failed now since 1975. Will create chart.

May 21 Past two days have been amused by image of businessman trying to grab Christie's breasts and her violent reaction. Very mechanical and "Art Deco" in memory, like stylized 1940s robots.

May 24, 1986 Visit Cheshire Fairgrounds. Get marble vase, Louis XIV lamp, and red hobnailed toothpick holder. See Deco blue mirror table. Brings to mind blue windows of Hyperluxo Island houses during the 1950s. Se two more blue mirror tables, one taller, one fancy. Meet girl with 1/4 wolf-dog.
