Some guy wanted to know where I got my bitchen 57 Blue and White Bel Air Chevy

March 4, 1964, Wednesday, Ugly Day – We almost got in a fight about Tijuana.  He lies to me.

Drove to school.  Looked ugly all day because my hair was a mess.  Came home did my roots.  Than we had to take my car to have the brakes fixed.  Some guy there wanted to know where I got such a bitchen car.   A 57, Bel Air Chevy, blue and white, with black and blue interior and blue dashboard.  I told him it was my grandmothers.  My grandfather gave it to me after she died last year.  Such a bitchen car for a girl, he said.  Came home and fell asleep until 8;00.  Then forced myself to get up and make my little brother Preston a birthday cake.  While doing this Howard called.  He wants a picture of me.  He says we’re going to the mountains for a weekend.  I told him I wouldn’t do it.  Told him I think I got someone for Phil.  Sharon Wright. We’re going surfboard shopping Saturday.  Meeting him at the beach.  Sure hope we can go out Saturday.  He’s getting a day job so we can go out at night.  He’ll take me to Club Night.  He can’t call tomorrow.


So Here’s my Saffron Club picture I had made just for Howard to show his Surf buddies.
