Shanghai or Bust

Thursday, February 16, 2006


So , Here I am at the Laundromat cleaning all my bedding so that my room will be ship shape at the time of my departure . My cell phone rings showing a California phone number . " hello " .
" Glenway , It's David "
" Who ? "
" David Donald "

David Donald ! Now I don't expect that everyone who is reading this necessarily knows who David Donald is . I met David at Lincoln Sudbury Regional High School in 1970 , We were in a play under the direction of Harriet Rogers , a fine acting teacher and a professional actor in her own right . We shared adjoining closets on the stage and would come out on occasion to perform what would best be described as a Mutt and Jeff schtick ' thing ' . First experiences can have a profound effect on relationships . To make a long story short , we have managed to keep our Mutt and Jeff schtick going on and off for some thirty five years combining with variation of the game musical chairs . I cannot count the number of musical collaborations we have had over the years and there are projects that I wouldn't necessarily want to bring up without changes a lot of names and other facts .

" David . I can't hear you very well in hear . Damn cell phones . What are you doing in California ? "

'I'm not in California I'm in th643a9ui]1[j d "

" Wait. What ? Let me go outside . What ? "

" I'm in Thailand ! "

So David Donald is in Thailand . He is Playing Bass in a mostly original Rock Band whose members are mostly From New Hampshire . The Band is opening up for everyone famous who bops through town and are working on an original album . Also , he has fallen in love with a beautiful Thai girl named Cha Cha . WOW . wouldn't believe it if I read it on a Blog !

He has a work permit in Thailand but has to go out of the country to renew it so I might end out seeing him in Shanghai .

Back to the point . Stay focused this is Shanghai or bust not the David Donald Fan-club Website. I am going to Shanghai to play music . Hopefully Myrick and I will be enormously successful . God knows we deserve it . Both of us have been playing music most of our lives . A lot is on the line here. I have invested time and resources to get there . Which leads me to this pledge . I will not go to Shanghai and fall in love with a beautiful Chinese girl . I will not go to Shanghai and fall in love with a beautiful Chinese girl . I will not move go to Shanghai and ,......... Will I ? I hope not ???????????????????????????????????

    Your life is full of coinky dinks Glenway. And people you've known for 40 years or more. Always popping up when you least expect it.
