chet w Aquarius (songs from the Musical 'Hair') (34) RE: Aquarius 09 Jan 98

You know, I'm not known for keeping up with fashion trends, but when I do pass through a department store, especially the fancier ones, I have noticed over the past few years that things come out as "new" (and very expensive) when they've had just enough time to get gone from the thrift stores. I've seen it often enough to have little doubt of the validity of this trend. Right now you can buy (for several dozen dollars or more), polyester anything, exactly like what we were wearing in the 60's when we didn't know any better. In a related vein, it's an interesting feeling when your own old toys, comic books, etc. have become valuable antiques. I think this happens faster than it used to. OK, so I'm afraid. Of what, I'm not sure. I feel glad that my guitars and mandolins are generally a lot older than I am, and we get along just fine. I still love the Beach Boys. I was a surfer, at Myrtle Beach, SC, where the waves rarely got over two feet tall or broke more than ten yards from the sand. It was an important thing to be doing at the time.

Nervously, Chet W.
