**note** these past 3 were for some reason written in my mom’s handwriting. Why, I don’t know. Guess I was too busy to write? Who knows. Those 2 movies, well, I’m sure they were what my parents wanted to see. Not kid movies at all. And…the millers…oh my, those were moths, we called them millers, or candle bugs, or space coasters. We had an invasion of them and it was crazy! πŸ™‚

5/7/61 – We went to church. It had a sandstorm. (It? haha the church had a sandstorm? well, I’m sure I was just talking about the weather of the day.) … Daddy plumbed (He was a master plumber) haha I wrote ‘plumbed’ – didn’t know I knew that word back then at 10 years old! … for our washing machine. We went to the grocery store. Then we went to N’s (aunt) and then to B’s (aunt)

  1. How cool that you still have your diary from when you were 10 years old. πŸ™‚ I had a diary when I was a kid. I went through it and went ahead and made my birthday entry for about 5 years. I was anxious to move on. haha

    I enjoyed reading your diary. πŸ™‚ Have a blessed night!

    • Thanks, Suzanne! … I like the idea that you went ahead and filled in your b.d. entries ahead of time. I never thought of that! I wish I’d have kept all my other ones I wrote. It’s fun to look back to see what was going on back then.

      • You’re welcome and thank you, too. It is great that you kept at least one of them. I don’t have any of mine from my childhood. I have several different journals now. I have journal files in my computer as well as actual hold-in-your-hand journals. Most of the time I forget to write anything in any of them. Then, I have to apologize to the journal for neglecting it. haha

        Wouldn’t it be neat to take your diary and write a book from it, either fiction or non-fiction?

        Have a blessed day!

      • haha I know what you mean. I have any number of little notebook/journals started, planning to write every single day in it, then I forget. Next time I have to tell it I’m sorry I forgot. πŸ™‚ Good to know I’m not the only one that does that! … It would be great to figure out how to do a book. I’ve looked into the self-published type or whatever you call it, and I just can’t understand the process when it comes to formatting and all the rules.
