Chloe Atkins

Several people invite me to join their social network on the internet, for instance friendster was an early one, and most recently facebook. And I get a lot of junk email indicating a Chloe Atkins presence on facebook. So today I checked it out, and all these people are identified as Chloe Atkins on facebook.

Who woulda' thunk? When I was a little girl in the 1950s and '60s, nobody had ever even heard of the name Chloe, much less pronounce it or spell it correctly. Now it's confusing who is the real Chloe Atkins. I mean, if my name were Jane or Mary . . .

I was just going through google images of Quincy CA, and checking real estate prices. I got to thinking about a time when I actually lived in Quincy (1965-1966) and a friend I had named Chloe Atkins. I sort of considered Chloe my girlfriend at the time, as she was the only person who would listen to me and identify with. No, I am not gay, but considering the time, place and the fact that I was an eleven year old guitar player, I stuck out like a sore thumb. What I remember most about Chloe, is that she was warm, friendly and yes, a great kisser. We once made out by the creek behind the playground of the school we were enrolled in. Mr. Sierra was our teacher, and Mr. Demboz was the school principal. I caught the broadside of a paddle from who we referred to as, "Dumboz" on many occasions.

Through the years I often wondered what happened to you Chloe, and now I know. Congratulations on your success as a photographer. Since our youthful friendship, I went on to live in the Pacific Northwest, became a staunch libertarian, blues and bluegrass guitarist, real estate investor and still the good guy you remember back in good 'ol Quincy. Provided you indeed remember me.

Best regards,
Will Scarborough
