Anna and Pat met on Anna's first job and then I met her. We helped her get over two marriages and guzzled beer and sipped Southern Comfort the whole time (it seemed that way anyway), about five or six years of fun and adventures. Anna and I both were fascinated over the hippy scene in Atlanta in the Peachtree and 14th Streets area. Pat's life was right in the middle of it all. She hung out at the Stein Club.
She took us to meet Ernie Marrs in his garage apartment in Little Five Points. Ernie was a song writer, editor of The Great Speckled Bird, and a roofer. Being the idealist Ernie, basic humble character he was, I quickly saw he had something else in mind with Pat other than discussing issues of the day or song writing, or poetry: making Whoopee!
