December 30, 1964, Wednesday
Had my Senior pictures taken with Pearl. Then drove to the beach for old times. It was the last time this year and it made me sad, because it brought back old good and bad memories. All the fun of Howard, Dave, Doug and I wish Byron. I’ve still got to get him! Toes is all deserted, nobody goes there anymore accept me and Sandy. She still hopes to run into Jack someday. The Dandy-Lyons, our sponsor’s, took the Saffrons out to lunch and to a Fashion Show, at Bullock’s Wilshire and it was wonderful. Then I went shopping with Mom. After all that I came home and called Lauri, to decide what to do for New Years. We’re having 6 girls stay all night and have a party at my house. I don’t think it will work out, but, I guess it’s better than nothing.
My Senior picture. I liked my hair and I thought I should win for best hair, in the yearbook, but I didn’t, probably because it was exotic and two colors. The Senior Play, “Home Sweet Homicide” is coming in two weeks and I hope I don’t get sick again.
The biggest thing I learned this year is how much I love my mother and I’m so proud of myself for finally standing up to Nana and defending my mom. I didn’t get the guy I wanted, but maybe 1965 will be my big year for finding true love.
