In 1962 I was eight. Needless to say, I did not have a
girlfriend at eight much less a girlfriend with a famous mom. I
didn't have nothing going down when I was eight. No sir. I mean the
neighborhood kids used to play in the bushes in the backyard at the
edge of the property, but that was always group sex. There was
nothing that was one on one that I remember. Not at eight. I don't
think so. Marsha Guy's mother forbid Marsha from playing with us. The
word got around and eventually we complied with her mother's wishes.
We had no choice. We had to. Soon after Marsha had left what was left
of our group collapsed under its own weight and fell apart too I
believe. Maybe Marsha can tell you a better account than I can. To my
recollection that is what happened.
