When there was nothing else to do, we could always go up on the roof and gossip.

February 21, 1964, Friday, I’ll see Howard at the beach tomorrow. How should I act…Boring day.

Drove to school. Day seemed to go so slow. Talked about Shelia a lot. After school, drove Marilyn to Dale’s, (her boyfriend.) Then went to Bonnie’s. She wasn’t home, so waited for her. She was at Angie’s. We acted real dumb. We got up on the roof. Edna came over and all four of us were up there. We told the little kids a monster was up there. Bon and I left, went to Fosters, than to Shelia’s. She’s getting fat. She went from 105 lbs to 121 lbs. Came home. Some of Donna’s friends were over. Mom and Dad went out. Howard didn’t call. Think I’m going to a party tomorrow.
