Now this is Rural High Class. An RV pulled by a Cadillac! For several summers we stayed the whole week at the Del Mar Fair. My sisters had sheep in 4H two years in a row. My folks would park the RV and unhitch the car and drive home to Ramona, and then us three kids would be alone most of the week! Running wild and free every day at the fair. Most nights I would meet up with high school friends that were there to see Montezuma's Revenge. THEE popular band of San Diego, before there was a glimmer of The Beat Farmers (or The Rugburns), but farming a similar acre of music. Us teens would stomp and break picnic benches, drink beer when an elder would buy, and get crazy watching that band. One night I met the singer Zeke and he walked me back to my trailer, I played him a song I wrote Ramona Blues (very Chuck Berry). We talked music for a while and then he said good night. It was all very innocent. Which was good cuz I was a child for a long while.
