I believe I was in my 50’s when I finally decided to stop loaning things to people, I never got them back. I loaned a person a DVD, months later I asked for it back and they said they hadn’t time to watch it yet, months later same thing, months later they lost it..oh well when will I learn.. Through the years I have loaned CD’s to People that never found thier way back home and before that it was records which brings me to this blog. Back in High School I had a Friend named Jack who had a Band named the Kordels, his band actually recorded a record which was pretty big stuff back then and I bought a copy from Jack. I think I paid $3 for it back in 64 or 65.
Well My Friend Jack passed away many years ago and I had the biggest urge to hear his voice this morning, Yep at 1:30 AM I wanted to here Jack sing one more time, the record I had I loaned out and I think the person I loaned it to became the owner of it through so many years of having it, never the less I won’t be seeing it again.. but I did find a copy on e-bay for $25, which is a option, but the other option I have is to see if my friend Danny has a copy in MP3 format that he can give me, if not I will buy the damn record again and find a way to get it copied to a MP3 format…I MISS JACK AND I WANT TO HEAR JACK’S VOICE NOW!!! When we got out of High School, Jack Apfelbaum became a Guitar Teacher at Al Kalie’s Music Store in the Lakewood Shopping Center, and I took Guitar lessons from him, Jack was one of the most kindest, sweetest person you could ever want to meet, I miss his friendship dearly and just maybe listening to that record one more time will be a beautiful reminder of how great and talented Jack really was.. Jack owns a special place in my heart that I have reserved for special friends.. I have a need to return my mind back to those days, oh well….. ~Peace~
