Berkeley because of an accident of weather and geography always seemed to have a lot of fleas. Back in the early days of the Fish House, the fleas got bad there during the summer especially and because of the carpets. ED and Gloria took to wearing red rubber rain boots in their apartment. One time I saw them walking down Telegraph still wearing their rain boots in Summer. And John Fahey, obviously a visitor, was with them, wearing taller black rubber rain boots and cut off levis. Just out for a stroll. So we walked around a little bit together that day.
I was teasing and told John he had beautiful legs. He had a publicity photo taken of himself wearing his rubber boots and cut offs. I wish I could show you a copy of that photo!
