"It was a suit of armour. I did enjoy becoming ELTON. I was so happy to change my name. You know if you're ever going to make a record, you know REG DWIGHT isn't going to make it. I wanted something very American and something original. Eric Clapton called me Reg for a long time. Eventually I plucked up the courage to ask him to stop." SIR Elton John on shedding his birth name REGINALD KENNETH DWIGHT.

Oh my God!, I can leave this, Hope you're well, I thought of something else last night to help , I tell it to my children too, drink blueberry juice, Man God man alive I know you have money, go buy blueberry juice evryday, and you'll be cured. lambs, and crocodiles all in the same room, on 1342 Bertram street in the dream you, me, in dad's house, maybe you have lots of sheep at home like my gedo on my moms side did. I think I'm helping the hockey game out, no fighting ai report to them, seems like they';re less hard working in the skating not defeating themselves, why work so hard?i have a harrassment problems, I talked in church in Ukrainain. How are you? Yak semiish?Hope you're well. going home next week, I'll get someone to help me, maybe my daughter will show up, I'm sorry that I have bothered you if I have, I can not, Pineapple juice does the trick, winnipeg is dirty with thieves in the wrong uniforms'gangsters, one cop was on the portage ane main stopping a van with chantily sign on it or something like thatand wiggling his hands down beside him. before the bus as we drove through. I did a lot of work in winnipeg too. thanks for listening, could you pass on t o elton the blueberry juices' .everyday drink for a while, or grape juice it tastes good. oh, I want to go home to my kids, the ukrainain man in the hospital hes' an older man his wife died, no I won't go to him, I talk ukrainain to him, he understands, says clarence isn't human. as people we don't think of sensational's know what I mean?we heard it, and saw it, and bought it, but we all had our own work to do, us ukrainains.! I'm tired I'm going to go to bed tonight a new beds' sponge foams, for a early night, yuo can't imagine how difficult it is to be impostered by them , my time doesn't belong here. Elson will go back home, and return to her cold house. like my dad says wrong people. I wait for the doctor he's on holidays, he's good. I'm beat, the weather is snow is hard to walk on to go to town, I hope yu can understand that all the work we did together, you people there, its working very good in winnipeg. donald street is clean now. taek care to love Elton, God bless and be with you. I"m dissappointed about Elvis deeply so. Maggie.
