I bought a vinyl copy of Movin’ With Nancy by Nancy Sinatra at a thrift store a few months ago. When I went to play the album I found this letter inside a little envelope, addressed to Mary from Sam. I wonder if Sam gave Mary this album and if she listened to it with her family. I also wonder what parental problem Mary was having and what they did when they met at noon.
This was tucked in the sleeve of a Van Morrison record my grandma purchased for me at a thrift store. I don’t know whether the note was written or the foot was drawn first. Neither scenario makes much sense, but I like them.
I got this record at the local flea market. I bought it from someone who definitely wasn’t Frankie’s parents. I researched this “Frankie” and found out that it probably is Franky Bandy, who actually started this “TearDrop” Records in Chicago.
On the way to the movies, I spotted this sign on the side of the road. I had to come back a second time in order to pick it up. It wasn’t until then did I see that its lovely little message was sprawled on a Frank Sinatra album. Hope he got the rent.
