August 25, 1964. Tuesday. Went to a TV Premiere.
The rabbit got out so we called the SPCA. They said they found one so we went to get it, but it wasn’t ours. It was next door the whole time. Pearl got sick so we didn’t go to the beach. Nana came over and let us use her car. My sister Donna, her friend Teri Thompson and I went to Toes. It was ugly and cold. Tonight Pearl, Donna and her friend Linda Kline and I went to a TV Premiere. It was really good! We got to rate the show. It’s called “That Girl.” After, we drove around Hollywood and went to Pandora’s Box. We saw the Marauders playing there. I was so sad because it wasn’t Byron’s band the Marauders. We went to the Purple Onion, but couldn’t get so finally went to Woodies and got Hot Fudge Sundaes. Also, Walt Disney’s Mary Poppins was released today.
Marlo Thomas “That Girl” became my all time favorite TV Show as a Teenager. I wanted to be just like her in every way and I never missed a show. I loved her clothes, shoes, make up and hair.
Pandora’s Box The Club was a very cool club that let teenager’s in. It was actually more of a Coffee House and a Hollywood hot spot in 1964.
Woody’s SmorgasBurger was the best burger joint ever and you could make up your own burgers and your own Sundae’s with the works. My family had been going there since I was a little kid in Grammar School.
I still hadn’t given up hope of snagging Byron Ferguson, the drummer in the Marauders… from Westchester High School. But this wasn’t his band.
