The plan was to meet Heywood, Keith and
Killer in Ft. Lauderdale, as I was unable 10

side. Needless to say, Anita was a little
stuprised tos receive me at 3 at.
I cattght a lot of sleep at Anita's Indthlett

Befoce I knews it, we were 0on theloetad
again. Our next stttp was Smyrnsa, NC. We
stopoped at Spoace's parents' htttse, had a
gttod meal, attd were anxiouts to get oto our
May. It wtas now Sunday nighot and we
thottght we cottld ntake Focida by Tuesday
if we dcove Ioun-stop.
Buttjust as we were about to leave, Space's
parents suggested that swe pay a visit1(tote
in-laws in New Ocleatos. Since I was penniless
antIntot the otsner of ttur vehicle, I wtas
grudgingly ttbliged to embark tn this oll-
rttacl pilgritmage. My sanity would bave been
ttttally lttst had it tout been for Jttnah's
generosity with beer. Louisiana wtas a blttr. I
remetoober a brief visit tith Spate's relatises
(half ttf whom seetmetd to lot amputees), and
a lot of talk abtut gator hunting.
Of cottrse, ste never did make it tt Ft.
Lauderdale, as Space enjtyed his relatives'

rest of the week thtere.

stttle a fire extinguisher from theit hottel and
drove atound sprayintg other cats totte
highway. Apparently someone got upset,
chased him into a dead end and brttke his
nose swith a tire iron. They spent the test ttf
their vacatioto paying fines and doctor bills.
As for me, I artived back in Buffaltt to my
gilfriend's toost-welcome menstrual cycle,
and spetot thoe rest of the setoester inebriated
on $117 worth of beer.
