Now I’m a real SAFFRON!!! At last I really belong to something GREAT!!!!

January 12, 1964   Sunday   TIRED DAY

Got up at 6 this morning after going to bed at 4.  Got dressed.  They blindfolded us and took us to the “Pancake House” for breakfast.  We were starving after no food except cake last night.  We were soooo tired we could hardly eat.  Went home and went to bed until 2:00.  Got up and tried to wash all the junk out of my hair, but it’s still ruined.  My parents had some people over for a bar b que, Jill P., and Beverly and Joe came over later with Mary Jo. The whole Saffron initiation was terrible, sad, but wonderful.  Now I’m a real SAFFRON!!!  Sooooo happy.  At last I really belong to something GREAT!!!!
