More Little Paul and Tecopa

Patty thought she'd squeeze one more post out of the cool photos that "Friend of the Blog" sent in. His notes read as follows:

Hanging out in the Snake Pit. (Patty's note: no, not that Snake Pit. This is different). L to R : Jonnie Watkins, Paul Watkins, Patty Mohn, Gary Mohn, Unk. Woman, "Tex" (Patty's note: no not that Tex. This is different too) and Bartender LeeAnn.


1980 Watkins Art Studio and Rock Shop. Downtown Tecopa, CA. Gary Mohn, Paul Watkins, Jonnie Watkins.

Pink Trailer Café, Tecopa Hot Springs, 1979 Vicky on break, enjoying Kay's Breakfast. In background: Gary Mohn and Paul Watkins.

Tecopa "Back in the Day"! Store, Gas Station and Paul Watkins' Jeep parked in front of the Old Tin Garage!
Patty supposes you could call these Paul's "Halcyon Days" between what came before and what happened afterwards. Paul died of cancer a decade later at what was still a very young age.

Thank you, "Friend of the Blog". I've really enjoyed these pics. It is a nice glimpse into what Paul and Brooks were into in the years after the trials. I'm glad to see that they were hanging around more wholesome people and leading a more normal life.

Apparently Paul and his wife still did drugs (not sure which ones) but yes, more normal than being a Manson.

The shrooms sure counted at a lot of the Dead shows that I attended..... I have my California doctor's recommendation for cannabis. It's really cool to go into a dispensary and choose from the many different types of hash...... I get a 10% veteran's discount which makes it cheaper than buying illegally....

This is Vicki as in "Vicki on break" in the above photo. Its been a long time since I've been in touch with my mentors, Brooks and Paul. I'd sure love to know of anyone knows of their whereabouts or how to get in touch with Brooks. Any info would be appreciated. They have me life lasting memories I wouldn't trade for anything.
