Baking in the sun all day and dancing to the Rolling Stones all night, during the Summer of 1964

July 4, 1964, Saturday. Byran acts like he likes Sandy

This morning at 10:00 Gary Fox came by and invited me and Sandy to his house warming party.  I laid in the sun at Lauri’s for 3 hours. I came home with my face completely burned beyond hope. I wanted to catch up on my tan, so I sprayed coco-butter on my face and laid on the diving board, now I look like a pink pig face. I went to Lyla’s to be coached for my audition at M.G.M. She seemed to like me. Came home, bought Champagne for Gary Fox. Sandy and I went to a Westchester dance and saw Bryan. He acted like he liked her. I felt so sad. Some sex feign kept bugging me. He’s one of Howard’s pals. Went to Gary’s but no one was there. We heard he went to Newport Beach, but couldn’t figure why he told us to come by. Went back to the dance and danced all night, but no one good was there.

That’s pretty much how it was… lay in the sun all day, trying to get a tan… and winding up burning my face to the point of looking like a pink pig

then, dancing all night with sex feign weirdo guys, waiting for a cute one to come along and sweep me off my feet.

One of the best dancing songs of Summer 64 was The Rolling Stones,
