written July 16, 1983 ... Together you and I could sail higher than a snail catch a star by the tail then tell each tales About females and males Fill a pail of hopes to the brim and then let it overflow giggling as it finds its own level reaching to any unsuspecting soul even God. ...you don't think that God can be surprised? Robin, It has occurred to me what will happen to me when I die:::...I'll naturally first try to get into Heaven. I will tap at the gate and this fine angel will ask, "Can I help you?" I will tell him that I would like to come in... He will then say, "Sure! Tell me your name and I will check it off of my list." Iwilltellhim that I'm Kathleen and he will then go, "HMMMMMMmmmmm. I don't seem to have an opening for a 'Kathleen'. Are you sure that you aren't a 'Pete'? I have a couple of places for that soul." "Nope!" I will say, "I'm Kathleen!" "Sorry," the angel will tell me, "I can't let you in Heaven..." ...Eventually, I will get down to Hell, and I'll ring the bell. This voluptuous woman will let me in the entrance. She will ask what she can do for me. I will say, "I'm Kathleen. I would like to come in." "Okay. Iwillcheckyourname offofmy list," she will say as she sashays over to her desk. "HMMMMMMMMMMM," she will comment, "I cannot find your name, Kathleen?, in my book. I do have a place for someone named Pete; are you sure that you are not a Pete? We could always use another Pete down here..." "No,I'm Kathleen." "Sorry, Icannot let you in Hell... Good Luck UPSTAIRS. Cute earrings you're wearing," she will say to me as I am leaving.
