All day I sat around again, thinking about how I should’ve been doing my homework while listening to records. The weather was foul today, cloudy, heavy rain occasionally and high winds once more.
By teatime, I felt dissatisfied with the holiday. As we watched the News about the imminent BL strike, it sparked Dad off who said that “left wingers” and “communists” are behind most major strikes and involved in most unions. He then went on about a book he’s read from the library called “The Dark Gods” by Anthony Roberts and Geoff Gilbertson which alleges an international conspiracy between Nazis, Communists and extremists, who will eventually destroy each other allowing some alien power to take over the world. The book apparently makes a connection between UFOs and communists/Nazis etc….. ??!! I sneered at it, thus provoking him into anger.
My evening went by, playing Mingus, Joni Mitchell, Santana, and Charlie Parker with Andrew while amusing ourselves with '‘Old Moore’s Almanac 1981.” I came to bed at the (for me) early hour of eleven.
