1971

I don't know why I am doing this. It seems such a waste of precious time.

So, in 1971, my mom died.

I got drunk.

I got drunk some more.

I felt guilty.

And then I drank some more.

Oh Mary the first line made me laugh. The "I must follow thru with what I said I would do" syndrome.
It's OK...your post today summed up your year. But, what about your hairdo at the time? AND did you love shoes back then?

The lost year...

What alcoholic doesn't have one of those. Or three or ten.

I had long straight hair and I was married to a drug dealer who wouldn't share his money, so I had one pair of shoes. And they were ugly.

Just a few lines -- and so much heartbreak. After my mother's suicide I drank like a fish for more than a year. Guilt and misery and drunkenness.

Thank God every year was not full of nuns and homes for unwed mothers! I have many that are blurrs too.

It seems that this was a tough year. I'm wondering what a Mary with long straight hair looked like. I can't say that I remember much about 1971 except that I was studying my ass off. And maybe that was the year that I fell in the river after drinking two bottles of wine.
