DEAR DIARY – AUGUST 5 – 16 , 1961

For those who haven’t seen my Dear Diary posts before, a little explanation. This is my actual diary I wrote in for a full year, when I was 10 years old. I wrote every day, sometimes a lot, sometimes a little, sometimes funny, sometimes boring, but it was all recorded. Names of relatives are only first initials with relationship in parentheses. I’ve typed the entries just as I wrote them, mis-spellings and all, but corrected in parentheses. More posts of Dear Diary can be found by using catagories, or search box. Hope you enjoy reading my childhood diary! 🙂

    • Thank you! I’m surprised I kept this one. I did have quite a few more, but don’t know what happened to them. I’ll bet you had some fun times back then. Glad you enjoy reading these, even though some days were just routine stuff. 🙂
