Saturday, August 17, 1968

Journal: This morning I worked an hour for Lilly Welburn. I won’t work again for two weeks – after I get back from Aunt Lorraine’s. Well, Karen Cox came over for a couple of hours today, and we had a nice visit. She lent me Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. It’s a very interesting book. Sharon Rood once told me she didn’t think a girl should marry until she had read the book. I am now reading it to see if Sharon has a good reason for her statement and also because I have heard about the book. There is a rather old movie of the book with Clark Gable as Rhett Butler. Clark Gable is a real neat guy (of my mother’s generation), so I sure would like to see that movie! Karen Cox saw it with her class when she lived back east in Maryland. I got a letter from Sherri Davis, too. Well, I must finish my packing now, as I go to Patsy’s tomorrow. I will leave this journal home to be continued when I return – if I have time before Aunt Lorraine comes, that is. So long for now!

Nothing real exciting has happened yet but there is some news to tell.

Friday, August 16, 1968

Journal: Nothing real exciting has happened yet, but there is some news to tell. Karen Cox just called me, and I guess the whole family is down from Myrtle Creek visiting at her grandparents. Dan Emry is there, too, so Karen will have a chance to get better acquainted, that is if Judy McIntire doesn’t mind. A wee bit of cattyness there as Judy is Dan’s girlfriend for whom I feel little sympathy. Judy & I are of two different worlds. Tonight the movie, A Shot in the Dark with Peter Sellers is on. It ought to be good as Peter Sellers plays a dumb, fumbling detective who somehow manages to catch his man.

I also packed for camp today – I’m going to a Nazarene church camp with Patsy Shearin. So long for now!
