It’s sad chosing which Saffron hopeful makes the cut


September 28, 1964, Monday. Saffron Tea…

The Saffron hopefuls were so excited, but the one’s who didn’t get an ask back after the tea were sad. I felt so bad, because I know how they feel. I didn’t make it the first time. We went off campus today. It was soooo bitchen to just leave school and go out to lunch. After school I went shopping with Lauri. We drove to Wilshire in her new red Corvair. She got it from her grandparents on her Birthday last Friday. When I came home I didn’t do anything all night. I’m so scared about tomorrow. We have to choose the girls we want in the club. I can’t stand to see any of them hurt. I wish we could take all of them I just love Saffrons. I’m going to hate to leave next year.

Lauri got a brand new red Chevrolet Corvair for her 17th Birthday.  It was so cute and fit her perfectly.  Just the right size and color for her.  What a great Birthday present!

After my grandmother died in 1963, my grandfather gave her car to my mother and she gave it to me for Christmas.

 My parents had it painted to look like new and the upholstery was covered in plastic, to was picture perfect.  I loved Lauri’s car, but I would never have traded my 57 Chevy for a new car.  Mine was so bitchen!  And all the car-guys went crazy when they saw it.  It even had white dice hanging from the mirror.
