Roy Orbison MEAN WOMAN BLUES was the song that kept me strong and looking for another Bitchen Guy!

March 24, 1964. Tuesday. Donna’s 15th Birthday. Saffrons going to Crestline.

Well, we didn’t go. But was glad cause I wasn’t ready to go anyway. Took all my Capris and blouses to be cleaned yesterday and couldn’t pick them up till today anyway. Took Lauri and Rhonda shopping to get something for their Mom’s Birthday Then went to the cleaners. They couldn’t find my clothes so we went to buy a cake for her mom. Went back and got half of my stuff. Took Lauri home and ironed my blouses. Lauri drove by with Fred. He got a new car, convertible, black. Then I went to pick up Marilyn and we went to have my car checked and to the bookstore. Went to the cleaners. Finally got all my stuff. Picked Billee and Preston up. Picked up suitcases from Granddaddy’s and again brought a coat to the cleaners. We’re leaving tomorrow.

saffrons rule cleaners

Practically made a career out of going to the Dry Cleaner’s just to have all my Sharrie costumes ready to go, so I could make the scene in Crestline.  But no proper Snow clothes.

saffrons rule suitcases

Packed a few suitcases for my trip, with enough cosmetics and makeup  to do a full Broadway Production.


While trying not to think of Howard, this song kept running through my head…..  I had to be mean and not wimp back to him. I had to find another Bitchen Guy!!!
