DEAR DIARY – JULY 13 –  23, 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! 🙂

I just wish I’d written down what I spent all that time playing! I would imagine it was regular kid’s stuff, like jump rope, jacks, Barbie Dolls, paper dolls, and things like that. I had a pogo stick, and some stilts we’d all play on, too. I liked digging in the dirt, playing something or other with little cars…I had a cool yellow road grader toy. I had a bicycle, so rode that all around the neighborhood. 🙂
