March 5, 1964, Thursday. Preston’s fourth Birthday. Wish Howard would call. I want to be with him every minute.
Press is four today. He got a wagon and some other toys. Mom had to take me to school, in the T-Bird, because my 57 Car is being fixed. Was a tired, boring day. Sharon W. say’s she’ll go out with Phil. I got a picture to show him of her. Nish say’s we want Lou’s Band for our Saffron Dance. I’m so glad I can’t wait to tell Howard. Got Saffron Pictures back from “Hell Night,” I look so ugly. Did my play today with Melanie. Was best in the class. We both got A’s. Had to go home with Lannie. Frosted the cake. Nana, Grandaddy and Jill P. came over for dinner. Donna and I got in a big fight over who would get the big bathroom. Had to flip a coin. She won. Miss Howard. Won’t see him until Saturday. Forgot to pick up my car. Will get it tomorrow.
