I should never have talked behind my friend’s back to her boyfriend.


November 4, 1964, Wednesday. Well day!!

I still didn’t go t school, stayed home, but felt better. Just watched TV and went swimming. I picked up my sisters Donna and Billee from school. Donna asked Jeff Hansmen to the Pledge party. I talked to Dale Hansmen, his brother. I told him I didn’t blame him and I was on his side, because Marilyn acts so wild at school and she said she had him wrapped around her little finger. Pearl came over. She called Howard my old boyfriend and asked him to the Pledge party, but he had a date. She said she wanted Bob’s number for me. I didn’t call him. Went to see Daddy at the Veterans Hospital, then Mom and I went out to dinner.

This isn’t a good picture of Marilyn, because she was really cute with a dynamite figure in a bikini.  We were best friends and she was President of Saffrons, but, ever since she borrowed my orange bikini and lost it, I was upset with her.  Marilyn was a big flirt and guys flocked around her, but, Marilyn and Dale remained quite an item.

Dale was a a couple grades ahead of us and was a top Surfer at Culver.  He hung out with the most bitchen guys ever and could get any girl he wanted… and he wanted Marilyn!!
