Entry One Hundred Twenty-Eight

Saturday, June 7                   Weather marked half Clear, half Cloudy.

Dear Diary,

Got my visitor. Was in health office all morning.

Harvey didn’t ask me about Fri & I didn’t say anything. Jim Grey & Marian Holman are going to Bob’s party too.

Got our Annuals & my pic isn’t even in it. Tom Meng, Norman (ugh) Hempling & Audrey Silverstone came over after school for milk & cookies.

I washed my hair. Wrote Jean a letter.

Thursday, June 5                  Weather marked half Clear, half Cloudy.

Dear Diary,

Enclosed is a cigerette. Tommy Meng, Tommy Beattes, Erwin Friestein, Audrey Silverstone, Art Grinky, Lois Jelin (myself), Jimmy Grey & Marian Holman. (3 girls, 5 boys) Erwin, me and Tommy B sat in front. We went to the beach. Tom M., Me, Aud Marr ditched all day, the others 5 + 6. We went to Bolis (which opened today) for lunch. We also went to Erwin’s house. We had a real fine time. We had a chicken fight. Tom M. & Art against Erwin & me. After that they buried me. Oy Oy Oy Neyez Mire. We made pyrimeds & Erwin sprayed me with the water 5 million times. My [illegible] kept falling.

Editorial Note:

Seen below is the 1953 class photograph of Lois’ friend, Audrey. Who knew such nice looking girls would ditch school to hang out with a bunch of boys at the beach?!
