WHEN I WAS SIGNED TO ALDON MUSIC BACK IN 1959 NOT ONLY DID CAROLE KING HELP WITH MY MUSICAL DEVELOPMENT, BUT HER HUSBAND GERRY GOFFIN UNSELFISHLY GAVE ME TIPS AND ENCOURAGEMENT THAT GAVE ME A LYRICAL EDGE!

MY CONDOLENCES TO CAROLE AND THEIR DAUGHTER LOUISE WHOM I USED TO BABYSIT

GERRY MAY YOU ROCK IN PERPETUITY!!

RESPECTFULLY, ARTIE WAYNE

HERE’S THE STORY ON HOW I WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TO HEAR, “WILL YOU LOVE ME TOMORROW?”

MOVIE

NO LONGER ABLE TO FINANCE MY PAINTING PROGRAM MYSELF, MY FACEBOOK FRIENDS DONATED MONEY FOR PAINT AND T-SHIRTS FOR THE RESIDENTS, AS WELL AS 325 DVDS WHICH WERE DONATED TO PREMIER FOR THEIR TWICE A WEEK MOVIE PROGRAMS. THE DONATIONS INCLUDED CLASSIC FILMS LIKE, “CASABLANCA”, “THE LAST TIME I SAW PARIS”, AND MODERN BLOCKBUSTERS LIKE, “FROZEN”, “HUNGER GAMES”, AND “ANCHORMAN 2”

THE ADMINISTRATORS SEEMED PLEASED WITH THE RESPONSE FROM THE RESIDENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES, AND I THOUGHT IT WAS A POSITIVE STEP TOWARDS CHANGING THE PERCEPTION OF THE ARCHAIC SOMETIMES “HORRIFIC” WAYS NURSING HOMES WERE RUN. THEN THE EMPTY BED NEXT TO ME WAS FILLED BY ANOTHER ” HOSPICE” PATIENT, WHICH MEANS SOMEONE WHO’S BEEN BROUGHT INTO THE FACILITY TO DIE!

SKULLTHE FIRST NIGHT HE WAS THERE HIS MOANS AND CRYING KEPT ME AWAKE, BUT MY BEGGING TO HAVE HIM REMOVED FELL UPON DEAF EARS AND A WEEK LATER, AFTER A FEW “UNEARTHLY” GASPS AND GURGLES, HE MERCIFULLY PASSED AWAY…WHILE I LAY SHAKING IN THE WAKE. ONCE AGAIN NO ONE FROM THE FACILITY CAME TO MY PSYCHOLOGICAL RESCUE.

I KNOW PEOPLE LIKE THIS HAVE A RIGHT TO A PLACE TO DIE…BUT WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE EIGHT FEET AWAY FROM ME?

OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS THE BED NEXT TO ME HAS BECOME A REVOLVING DOOR OF DEATH, WITH THE BODY COUNT AT FIVE ( SO FAR).

AS I WAS FINISHING THIS ARTICLE I RAN INTO CHARLIE JENKINS, THE ADMINISTRATOR OF PREMIER CARE AND TOLD HIM ABOUT HORRORS THAT HAVE THRUST UPON ME. HE SAID, “HE’D LOOK INTO IT!”

I PRAY TO GOD THAT HE WILL…I CAN’T LAST MUCH LONGER LIKE THIS!

ANG WHEN  I LOST THE USE OF MY LEGS AND HANDS I MOVED INTO THE PREMIER CARE CENTER IN PALM SPRINGS WHERE I’M TAKEN CARE OF 24 HOURS A DAY. I’VE BEEN HERE FOR A YEAR AND UP UNTIL RECENTLY HAVE BEEN WELL TREATED.

I’M IN A ROOM FOR THREE LONG TERM RESIDENTS WHO PAY  $75,000 A YEAR EACH WITH THE HELP OF MEDI-CARE AND MED-ICAL. A FEW MONTHS AFTER I  MOVED INTO MY ROOM, THEY TOLD ME THAT I WAS GOING TO GET A NEW ROOMATE  WHO WAS  VERY QUIET AND WASN’T EXPECTED TO OCCUPY THE ROOM VERY LONG. THEY WERE RIGHT…A FEW WEEKS LATER HE DIED AND I FOUND HIS BODY DANGLING OUT OF THE BED NEXT TO MINE! I STILL DON’T KNOW WHY IT TOOK HOURS AND HOURS TO REMOVE THE REMAINS…WHILE I LAY CRYING QUIETLY FREAKING OUT!

NEEDLESS TO SAY, I WAS   TRAUMATIZED BY THIS INCIDENT, BUT I BELIEVED IN THE KINDNESS OF THE NURSES AND NURSES AIDS , EVEN THOUGH NO ONE CAME TO COMFORT ME FROM THE FACILITY. TO STAY POSITIVE, I VOLUNTEERED TO HELP MY FRIENDS IN  ACTIVITIES AND CRAFTS TO CONDUCT MORNING EXCERSIZE  CLASSES SIX DAYS A WEEK, I ALSO GOT THE READERS OF MY BLOG, “ARTIE WAYNE ON THE WEB ” TO DONATE PAINT AND T SHIRTS, SO I COULD TEACH THE RESIDENTS HOW TO PAINT!
