Randy Barnes – Letter #37 -May 24, 1969
Dear Solly & Carla,
24 MAY – Sat.
Just a short note. I was listening to the radio and what I heard gave me a real case of homesickness. It was “Kites Are Fun” by the FREE Design. Brought back good K.C. memories – Xmas time – 100 West etc. – But I’m getting so homesick – Solly, have you ever heard any other records by F.- D.?
Damn – only 84 days but seems like a life-time.
Want to ask questions about things I’ve read in “Capital” – What favorite K.U. hangout burned down? About 2 or 3 weeks ago there was big picket lines in K.C. at Safeway stores – Boycott Grapes – was Paul, you or any of the gang there?
Write tell me any old gossip – NOBODY WRITES – Tell me about K.C. – I miss home so much.
Things still happening but don’t want to talk – Two Friends killed by rocket – Saw what was left of bodies PUKE! Don’t feel right.
Am getting ready to order Stereo components – What an outfit I’ll have
Still unsure of future – probably GM & finish school – FUCK IT.
Gonna drink, eat, & fuck – take hot baths
Get Bob & BAN to write – Paul – Goose people. Everyone –
This Xmas Let’s buy 2 cases of Taylor’s??
Your Dear Friend
PS The light still works
