Dear Diary – June 1 – 4 , 1961


Dear Diary – June 1 – 4 , 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, misspellings and all, but corrected in parentheses. More posts of Dear Diary can be found by using categories, or search box. Hope you enjoy reading my childhood diary! 🙂


Dear Diary,

6/1/61 – I played. It was mother’s birthday. We went to town. I got her  box of powder, and a vace (vase) of flowers. P (sister) got her a bottle of perfume. N (aunt) got her a perfume bottle. J & D (cousins) got her some flowers. I spent the night over J’s.

6/2/61 – I played all day. J (cousin) and I played in the water. Then we went to the driving Range (at the golf course). B (aunt) went with us.

6/3/61 – We played. We went to get Dusty (our dog) and Toro (grand-ma’s dog) vaxanatied (vaccinated). then we went to Grannys, T (uncle was over. Granny went home with him. We went to the dime store. We got a 101 Dalmation set.  (I think this was one of those plastic Colorforms boxes)

6/4/61 – I played. We went to Grand mas. Then we went to B’s. (aunt). Daddy and H (uncle) went glofing (golfing) at night. Grand pa came over and ate supper with us.


This is the end of the series “Dear Diary”. I’ve done the whole year’s worth.
