Tuesday, April 27th, 1976


A quiet day all around. Got TBG in the mail again but no good ads. Nothing I want to order.

I finally wrote to Yoshiko in Japan but don't have any stamps to mail it yet.

I informed Mr. S that I would agree to be on the HORIZONS staff. First time I've really participated in any school activity. We'll see how it goes.

I watched Dennis Weaver get roasted on TV tonight.

NOTES: Not much to say here. The HORIZONS work didn't really involve much over time except for a brief period of reading and helping to choose which poems, essays, book reports, short stories or art pieces would be included.

The number one song in the US that week in 1976 was the Bellamy Brothers with their first big hit, "Let Your Love Flow." A few years later, they'd have a hit with a song called " If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body, Would You Hold It Against Me?" That particular song has had the duo in the news again recently here in 2011 in a legal dispute over Britney Spears' use of similar lyrics...in spite of the fact that they admitted originally paraphrasing Groucho themselves.

  1. Huh, I always thought it was just a lame pick up line that you couldn't help but laugh at.

  2. Me, I always thought that "Let Your Love Flow" was a pretty lame and crude double entendre. Was surprised even then that it got played on AM radio!
