September 8, 1964, Tuesday. Club Night.
Pearl and I went shopping and I bought material to make skirts. Shopped all day, was so tired, came home and ate! Than picked up my sister Donna and her friend Dianne S. Went to a Saffron Meeting at Patty Carol’s, than to Toes and Fosters, but no one good was there, so went to Pearl’s and cut out name tags for the Saffron Tea. Than we went back to Fosters and back again to Pearl’s to watch TV. I stayed until 11:00 than went home and watched the “Good Earth”…so sad I cried. Still felt sick and ate to much, finally went to bed at 2:00.
The Good Earth – Amazing Scene
I often stayed up until 2:00 in the morning watching old movies. Everyone was asleep and the house was dark and quite. Sometimes I’d turn on the fireplace and watch them in the dark with a flickering fire. I cried when I watched sad movies, just like my dad. This movie was so painfully sad and yet a masterpiece as a book and a film. If you have never seen it be sure to catch it if you can.
