“Brand New Key”

“A 8mm film done by my sister while
in high school for a class project
in the 70’s with music by Melanie
that I transferred to tape. Location Wichita Kansas.”


Melanie! Melanie! Melanie!

Marry Me!

I promise!

I’ll be True!

To You!

And Only YOU!

I need a New Key: This One I got Ain’t User Friendly.

Why do I make my life so difficult?

I just got home from my drunken booze run.

Yes, I know! I promised to never drive While Blind.

Guess what?

I broke that promise. But I rationalized:

The trip wasn’t far, just as long as I didn’t trip when gettin’ outta my car…

Drunks can rationalize ANYTHING. Trust me. I know.


I broke that premise, promise.

This weren’t my first rodeo–I knew how to get by:

I just closed one eye.

(I once drove half-way from San Diego to Las Vegas with one eye closed.–‘nother story…)

Once home it took me five minutes to navigate my key into the door of my apartment. And the one I had in my paw didn’t seem to be working at all.

Imagine my  shameful shame. Looking about, hoping no one was “seeing” me with one eye or three.

A little “added value” for reference:

Just a little Ol’ Band O’ Bro’s from Texas.

“Driving While Blind”


(I have never been ‘busted’ for that, but I could have killed someone. And this would’ve ruined my life, not to mention theirs)

  1. I love Melanie. Even today she could sing me a lullaby at midnight. I have been drinking more lately. I am semi-retired. Need to open my sleeping brain. Hello from Michigan. Had warmest Summer in forever this years. Keep writing my friend.
