After all, everything has to come to an end, and we finally came to the end of this fantastic festival with an invitación from the president of Venezuela to the presidential balcony at the Hipodromo National de Venezuela! This very famous horse race party featured champagne, formal dress and society galore.
Now the party is over my friend, time to go back home to LA.
Of course we had to celebrate some more for the ones that could not come for some reason or another, so we gave this party on Halloween night. It took us a couple of months to recover, but we invited all the LA people that were at the festival and the ones that did not go. By that time Rona had moved here with her entourage, after her terrible accident jumping in an empty pool.
Of course, she must have been smoking some funny cigarettes and drinking too much with her friends, not to see that there was no water in the pool! As I said before, it must have been a dark night– well, that was not a good party for her. She recovered but was paralyzed from the waist down.
At this particular Halloween party, when David Carradine arrived he went straight to my rose bushes and peed in front of the other guests as they arrived in our circular drive! His brother Keith was in the pool, humming and composing a love song as he swam in the warm water (that’s how we liked it, hot!). Jim Maddox, our partner in filming the Onda Nueva Festival, arrived alone in his BMW sports car. He had eyes for me, and in some strange but pleasant way I liked him too. He was not very tall, but he had sensual lips and a warm smile, with eyes like mine, honey colored.
Eyes that said “I love you” all the time whenever he looked at me, but of course he wanted to party with me alone- he never participated in the group lovemaking “therapy” as he called it. His gentleness was warm and protective. But one evening, at a private dinner in our home with him and other couple, he turned me on to PCP or something. It was some new drug that the flower children came up with, kind of like the psilocybin mushrooms.
Rona arrived early, “before the therapy party” jajaja, and we had a blast of a time. She was fun to talk to, a good sense of humor and diplomatic (no wonder she became a senator). After family and special guests left, we had a couple of men stay and we had lots of fun in front the indoor fire place on the floor, then on top of the roof!
The festival of Onda Nueva! The music became so famous that it was played for years to come until Aldemaro Romero the great artist became ill and couple years later he passed away.
