Go, granny, go!

You gotta LOVE this woman! Ruth Flowers attended a disco party and saw that it was filled with “energy and joy,” as she puts it. So she decided to become a DJ and NOW is rocking the discos in PARIS FREAKING FRANCE! And don’t you go there about her being 69 — she was a teen when ELVIS was DIRTY! Kids these days are living in settled and safe territory, shock-wise. She was a pioneer! (Also, if Margaret were still alive, she would turn 69 on June 1, so it really doesn’t seem old to me and I can look at Ruth and see the joyful young woman still thriving inside her.)

So, rock on, Ruth, rock on!

Kids today think they invented stuff like sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll. I got an injury in early ’67 that put me in the San Francisco Bay Area for most of 1967. I met Jim Morrison of The Doors fame, Janis Joplin and Country Joe McDonald before they were mega famous. The early deaths of Joplin and Morrison helped turn me back toward country music.

Of course we baby boomers made the same mistake, thinking that WE invented sex, forgetting that there were so many of us and none of us seemed to live holy enough lived to have been born through immaculate conception.
