Hunting down my ex boyfriend to ask him to be my date for the Miss Culver City Coronation Ball

July 30, 1964, Thursday. Going to the Ball with Dave Kendal

Saffrons put on a banquet for our sponsors, The Lion Club. It was real fun. We served them food we made ourselves and entertained them. So dumb. Pearl and I went to Cesar’s to see Dave, because I’ve got to ask him to go to the Miss Culver City Coronation Ball with me. He wasn’t there. In fact nobody even heard of him, so we drove to Hermosa Beach and Toes. Then we went to Pearl’s and ate. Called Dave, but he wasn’t home. He finally called me and said he’d go with me. I’m so happy, now I can go to the Ball with a cute date.  I’ll be sad though, because I know Sandy Block will be the Queen. Sandy and I went to Fosters at 9:00 pm, than came home. She’s so happy I’m going with him. Don’t like Byron Ferguson anymore.

Dave was a very cute Surfer from Westchester High School.  We dated a few months and broke up because I was too high maintenance and we wanted different things in life, but, I needed a date and he was be perfect to escort me to the Miss Culver City Coronation Ball, so I asked him and he said yes.

I was known in Saffrons as Barbie Doll because I had all the Barbie Doll clothes and long ponytail.  Here a couple cute pictures stylized by my high school Carl Hjermind, that capture my Barbie image.
