Story

written 1/21/83-----wrote TWO songs that day. I was living at my sister's house in Scotch Plains, NJ. Wintertime was long and you had a lot of time on your hands being on unemployment. My sister Nanci had a cat named Sam and I figured he needed to have a little fun, and since he was hanging by his claws on the screen door trying to get out-I obliged him. Nanci recently told me he was bitten by a raccoon and had a bandage on his head from that day...oops
