[Living Room in Ontario, California
c. 1961-62

Ronnie Williams-voice
FZ-guitar]

We used Ajax and, and we couldn't get them things, we had to use a, had to use a putty knife, man, to get them damn things off the winduh. You couldn't even see out the winduh with all them boogers, man. I'm not kiddin' you (sniff). An' there was big ones too, an' there was little, and there was some goober ones that weren't even hard, man, you'd just smear 'em, young ones. It's like fro-, you, you've seen frosted glasses. That winduh was just like a frosted glass with spots all over it, y'know? And uh, (sniff) it was, it was no good. Although, th-that, that was the good ol' days, so . . .
