Monday before last, my week was sort of overshadowed by my hospitalization but I neglected to mention what had happened the weekend before that.
I’d exhausted myself with some friends from out of town. Specifically, my singer-songwriter friend who reminds me a great deal of Richard and a mutual friend of ours from Scotland who plays keys. They were in town for a couple of shows and a lot of partying and I was with them for a good bit of it.
Anyhow, I was watching them on stage and I got to thinking (none too seriously) if my tall, red-haired friend had been Richard, who could this shorter black-haired friend have been?
Then I looked at his keyboard and had to laugh.
It said “Roland.”
Funny enough, Roland was a short fellow with dark hair, though I remember him being stockier. In all seriousness though, I don’t think this was him; I just thought it was funny.
