Ramones autograph

My Dad is back in Georgia now, after living in Saudi for 7 years with my step mom. He was over there working with computers, not in the military or so. Anyhow, he is back in his house that he rented out for years and found an old suitcase of mine tucked away in the garage.

He said it was medium sized and had a Rolling Stones tongue drawn on it. “What’s in it?” he asked. I didn’t know. I said all I wanted for Christmas was this mysterious case sent up to me. I got it today and found it full of old photographs, the original program (bill) for the first ever MTV Music awards in 1984 ( I went with Joey Ramone and his entourage) and best of all, I found this drawing I did of Joey that all of the Ramones (except the drummer at the time) sign it.


Way down in the right hand corner, my name was signed ‘Dot Jagger’ which was what I called myself from age 13 to age 18 (then I started following the Grateful Dead and dropped the Jagger name). So cute how Joey called me a “Regular Picasso”. He was flattered by the drawing. What a cutie he was!

Anyhow, Jasmine and I are off to Key West Florida tomorrow until December 26th. Rachel Libeskind is coming with us (her daddy has to stay here in NYC and keep working on the new World Trade Center plans). Hope we get nice weather, I saw the forecast and it looks like we will get pissing down rain on X-mas day. If so we will work out and get massages, and maybe check out the Zoo, who knows.  

” So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
Ans so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young
A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear
And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong
And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let’s stop all the fight
A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear “
John Lennon
