We went back to school. When I came home I played. After that we went to bed.  (OH…now I remember!!! We went on a field trip at school. Our teacher’s house actually. Her husband was a big game hunter, and had lots of ‘heads’ hung up on the walls, a stuffed tiger, and other taxidermy things. …Now I would have freaked out, as I can’t stand seeing those poor animals displayed this way, just to have lost their life for some trophy hunter!!!) UGH!!!  and what a horrible way to scare a bunch of little kids!!! No Way!!!

2/18/61 … I did not go to school I played all day. daddy did not go to work. today B (aunt) came over. I got a permenit (hair permanent.

P (sister) and I played with her dog; Toro. Then we came home.
