Me, at Harriet's Apartment187 viewsHarriet was a Miami girlfriend at the time, one of two Jewish girlfriends I ever had. Once again, I am wearing a leisure suit, this time with a period Qiana shirt. I think I had smoked some funny cigarettes before this picture was taken. The bear is from Kent State University, Harriet's alma mater. She was from Cleveland, you see. Shaker Heights, even. I think that the picture on the table was Neil Diamond, and I seem to recall that Harriet had a big thing for Barry Manilow. That was a long, long time ago.

Connie and Me208 viewsMy New York girlfriend of the period, Jody, took this picture of her roommate, Connie, and me in my apartment at Montagu Village in Nassau. Connie wound up finding true love (or at least lust) with one of the Austrian chefs named Hans at King & Knights, a popular club at the time. (Actually, I set Connie up with Hans so I could have Jody to myself.)
