Subject: Where is JUDY FLENNIKEN?

Bob Nelson, in the Seattle area, would like to find Judy Flenniken again. We all met during the Worlds Fair in 1962. Judy was a very strong singer with a great delivery. Last I heard, she and her husband were living in Florida. If anyone knows of her, please have her contact Bride Judy and myself. Who knows ... maybe she's a 'catter!"

Yeah, I second Bob's quest to locate Judy Flenniken. She and I sang several concerts together early in 1963 and I'm real curious to know what she's doing these days.

The last time I saw her was sometime in the early Eighties when she blew back into Seattle for a couple of weeks. She and her husband were living in Florida—in the Keys, I think—and she was singing fairly regularly in a club or coffeehouse down there. The thing that complicates the matter of finding her is that I'm pretty sure she's using her husband's last name, and we can't remember what it was.

While she was here, she mentioned that she and her husband had been doing a lot of diving for treasure. They were hot on the trail of a particular treasure ship and thought they had a pretty good idea of where it was. She mentioned the name of the ship. I can't remember for sure, but I think it was the Nuestra Senora de Atocha. It was part of a Spanish treasure fleet that was carrying a load back to Spain in September of 1622 and got caught in a hurricane. Several ships fared badly. One of them was the Atocha, which got separated from the rest of the fleet, struck a coral reef just off the Florida Keys, and sank. In 1985, Mel Fisher, a professional treasure hunter with a lot of financial backing and the latest technology, found it. It made the news, and it was the subject of at least one National Geographic special. So any Florida treasure hunting buffs out there may have possibly run into Judy and her husband.

Judy was blonde, had a big voice (alto—think "Barbara Dane" or "Judy Henske"), and she used to accompany herself on a Casa Fernandez flamenco guitar, but last time I saw her, she said that when she was playing in the clubs and such, she used an Ovation classic with a pick-up (durable and loud). She'd be sort of sixty-ish by now. Them's all the clues I can think of right now. But if anybody knows her or finds her, tell her Don Firth's looking for her, too.

Gee whiz Don. I don't think you've got the age right. Last time I saw her, she was in her gorgeous 30's. That means that today, she's still in her gorgeous 30's. Ain't that the way it's supposed to work? I sure hope so. CHEERS, Bob

Judy looked pretty darned good back in the early Sixties, she looked pretty darned good the last time I saw her, and I'll bet she looks pretty darned good now.

We're all just thirty--at most. It's only the robot that gets old. Inside every old geezer or geezerette is a teen-ager wondering what the hell happened!!
