(Day 10) Kingtones Memoirs

February 15, 1964 (Saturday)

We got up about 11:30 A.M and ate breakfast. We decided to go to the beach for the day. Phil wanted to stay and relax at the apartment. He probably needed some time away from the rest of us. On our way to the beach, we stopped at Porky’s and collected our $60.00 for last night’s party. Porky said that he heard good things about us, and that the crowd loved our music. We felt that this most likely confirmed Porky’s decision to hire us. Then we left Porky’s and finally got to the beach.

It was a beautiful day, with the temperature at 77 degrees. The sun was shining, and the water was warm. The only problem was that Fort Lauderdale, especially the beach area, was almost deserted. We walked around a little and went into a few stores. Since there wasn’t much happening because it was not spring break yet, we went back home. I made dinner: rice, one hamburger per person, and stew. It was not the greatest supper, but it did curb our hunger.

After dinner, we met one of our neighbors in the apartment next to us. His name was Lloyd. He was a very likeable person and a great talker. He had a lot of self confidence, and made you believe he could do anything he set his mind too. We got along great, and he became a mentor to us.

We went to get a large pizza.  The “fabulous dinner” that I made earlier was just not enough. We spent the rest of the night eating pizza and talking to Lloyd. Mike went to bed early, and Pete, as usual, went to the bar. We were getting along fair, but still in good health. I called Chick. I loved and missed her very much. I wanted to be back in Michigan with her.
