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! 🙂

DEAR DIARY – JANUARY 21 – 32, 1961

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted any of my Dear Diary entries…too long. I will be playing catch-up a little at a time.

For new followers (thank you so much!) this series is my actual Diary entries from 1961 through 1962, when I was 10 years old. I wrote in it every day…sometimes a lot, sometimes a little, but I didn’t skip a day. As you can see, I’ve been a writer from the earliest days…even this diary was not my first one. I don’t know what happened to all the others I had, because this one is all I could find.

I don’t mention any names of family or friends, but use their initials, and say how they are related to me. I am transcribing the words just as I wrote them, mistakes and all, and will indicate the correction made now.

Hope you enjoy reading my Dear Diary!
