I wrote and performed my Play… “Walking Ugly”… for the Saffron Tea.

September 27, 1964, Sunday.  Beach Boys on Ed Sullivan Show tonight. (Warren Commission report released…Oswald acted alone.)

Went to Sandy Block’s house.  I wore a Black Sheath.  The yard looked so bitchen, I couldn’t believe it!  We picked up the girls invited to the Tea.  We had a band play and gave everyone party favors.  The girl’s were so scared , but said the Tea was so great!  The whole thing was a success!  Even the entertainment worked out beautifully for no rehearsal.  I did my version of Sleeping Beauty, called Walking Ugly, but this time I had everyone act it out.  The girl’s laughed so hard I almost died.  We’re going to do it for the whole school.  The whole day was great!  All the girls we wanted in the club signed up.  We voted for the one’s to be invited back to the next meeting.  I delivered the letters by hand.  I went to Sandy’s for her Grandfather’s Birthday and all her relatives were there.  I felt uncomfortable.

I started writing and performing when I was 15 and out of that desire to entertain, I wrote The Maybelline Story and today perform it live… showing vintage Maybelline ads and Maybelline family photos for Clubs and Organizations…  Once the desire to be on stage was planted, it grew over the years into a beautiful garden.
