So all night we drove on the freeway and listened to the radio and talked about what it was like being in the Marines.

February 22, 1964, Saturday, Wasted day and night. Miss Howard. Mad day.

Drove to the beach with Bonnie. Saw Bryan on his motorcycle. He wouldn’t take me for a ride. Howard wasn’t there. In fact no one good was there. Bonnie and I drove to the Valley. Went to Alene’s house. It’s so big and beautiful. Then we went to her cousin Mike’s house and talked. After, we drove to her aunts new store. She bought us hamburgers. Then we went to my uncle Al and aunt Jean’s house. My cousin, Big John was there. Had to take him back with me. We went to dinner. Than to the party with Lauri. Everyone was Jewish. (John didn’t want to stay.) Fred was there. So all night we drove on the freeway and listened to the radio and talked about what it was like being in the Marines. It was horrible. But he’s my cousin from Chicago and I’m supposed to show him a good time in California. I would be embarrassed to be seen with him at the beach. He’s so white, with a shaved head and out of it. But he acts like I’m his girlfriend.
