August 2, 1964,Sunday. Felt so low next to Sandy Block
I was with Sandy all day, but was so sad to see her Crown and trophy, for winning the Miss Culver City contest. She said I lost because they considered me a professional, because I said I was going to be on “Mr. Novak.” She took me out to dinner, but I felt like a big clod.
I guess during my interview with the Judges, I mentioned I was going out for a part on the Mr. Novak tv show, but I didn’t have the part, so, I don’t believe I said I was for sure going to be on the show. No matter what it caused me to be disqualified in the most embarrassing way and it was extremely Ego-Deflating. I felt so less-than, next to Sandy now… but she was my good friend so I kept it to myself and let her have her moment of Glory.
Today I believe Sandy deserved the title of Miss Culver City, because she had to be on call for events at a minutes notice while I still was getting sick all the time. Also Sandy died a few years ago of Cancer…I’m so glad she got to have such happy High School memories.
