DEAR DIARY … JUNE 29, 1961


Dear Diary,

I played.

D (my cousin) came over.

We went to the dime store.

We went to Grand-ma’s.

B & N (aunts) were there.

* the dime store….my favorite store. It was actually T G & Y, a variety store. (this was in the days before Wal-Mart came along). One of my all time wishes back then, was that I’d somehow be the winner of some prizes for being the 100th  or 1,000th customer to come through the door that day. My prize would be to choose 2 aisles in the store, and everything on those would be mine…for free! I would imagine all the fanfare and confetti, and balloons, and interviews that would happen, when I was declared the winner. The 2 aisles I’d always pick would be of course the ones with coloring books, and toys. Once in awhile I’d think I should pick an aisle for my mom, with things she’d want, but mostly I just wanted the books and colors! Well, it never happened back when I was ten years old…guess I’m still waiting… 😉


Thanks for visiting! Peace }I{

    I hope that one day something like that happens for you! I would dream of that too. I loved the stores before Walmart too.
    You are awesome to read! My favorite!
