Wednesday, June 9th, 1976

Looking through some old photographs has gotten me depressed again. It seems as if in the long run, nothing really matters. I've lost my entire childhood. I almost cried.

Later, Terry called and mentioned they had new oldies at the Ohio Book Store. Hopefully there's some good ones left by the time I go there tomorrow or I'll be even more depressed.

When I got involved in reading comics late in the day, I seemed to get less depressed.

Later tonight I finally saw the MAUDE pilot on ALL IN THE FAMILY.

NOTES: The Ohio Book Store in downtown Cincinnati had only begun carrying old comic books a year or two before. As perhaps their only two regulars who collected comics, the kind folks who ran the OBS (and still do!) began calling Terry and/or myself whenever they would receive a new batch of Golden Age comic books. The very first Golden Age comics I ever bought were through them. In fact, those three issues seen above were the first three I ever bought. Five dollars each! Wow! To this day, whenever I'm feeling down, a good comic book (NOT a modern day one) will always make me feel better.
