Musings from Starsky's Lady



 April 2th, 1976

   Wen i furst moved to Las Angeles, it was verry verry lonly. I went two a new school the marshal centar for Ecepshional children. But I wusnt ecepshional the kids wher i uset to liv cald me a retard and uset to beet me up. Peple wer nice at my new school but i dint feel like i had anee frends.

   Not until i was put in Miss Roberts class. I have ben in Miss Roberts class for 7 munths. Miss Roberts was vere vere sweet and vere vere beuteful. I fel in lov with her rite a way. It dint mattar that i was 14 and she was a litle bit oldar may be 17 or so and i was gona marre her sum day. And we wood be hapy and by are own litl house and hav a dog and may be a cat and evrything.

    Eech spring i wud bring Miss Roberts apple blosums from my moms tree in are yard. Miss Roberts wud smil and smil at me and put them on her desk. Wen i am 18 momma says that i wil be an adalt. Then i wil ask Miss Roberts to marre me.

    Miss Roberts says that i am varee smart and not too let the kids on my bloc bothar me when thay cal me names and say i am a retard. Miss Roberts smiles at me wen she sas this so i think may be she loves me two. she told me i shud keep a book of my thots and storys in a book. So i did. but i havint let any body reed it. May be after we get maryd I will let Miss Roberts reed it.

March 28th 1977

    dave and Hutch and momma pickd me up in daves reely grate car affter school to day. thay took me to a park Westside Park by the oshen that dave sed Miss Roberts likd to go to a lott. it was verry nice and had lots of gras and sweengs and stuf to play on to.

    we went for a wak on the beech by the wader. It was verre beutifal and the sky and wavs lookd so blue. I wantd to go swiming but momma sad no be caus i dint hav my swiming soot. We walkd by a litl girl who was crying and i askt her why she was crying she dint say no thing but pointd out at the watter you cud see her beech ball was far far out in the watter. ther wusnt any thing we cud do to get it bak for her. for sum reeson this made dave cry a litle so Hutch and momma and me let him walk on the beech by himself til he felt beter wile we playd on the swings

    be for it was time to go home we wakd on a sidwak wher ther ar lots and lots of trees. dave took us to a speshul plac wher ther was a tree that had a litl gold plate by it with his nam on it. it was verre prety Hutch said it was a mapl tree. but what was reely beutiful was the litl apple tree that dave and Hutch had plantd nex to it - it was a apple tree with lots of litl leevs on it and lots and lots of buds that wil be blossums verre soon! it had a gold name on it like daves onlee it said 'for my best frend' on it. Hutch said it was for Miss Roberts so that peepl woud see it and no that she was speshul. it made dave kindof sad to see the tree but it made me happy be caus i no how much Miss Roberts likd apple blossums.

    i wonder if i can marre Miss Roberts wen i get to heven? i beter ask dave furst.
