Dear Diary – February 1 – 10, 1961


Dear Diary – February 1 – 10 , 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! 🙂

I AM the KID WHO (part 2)


I AM the KID WHO (part 2)   … see part 1 here http://wp.me/p3RE1e-3hU

  • went horseback riding in huge empty fields, every Saturday morning. Now, where I used to ride, is a main shopping area here in town, with businesses all around. Here’s me on a horse named Joey, my favorite one.

  • moved a rubber ball, a few inches, by using only my mind thoughts
  • ate Elm tree leaves … they tasted good
  • saw my first horror movie, the 1961 film called,”Gorgo”, and wasn’t scared. I still like horror movies.
  • got a notification from a Ouija board, that I’d get a puppy dog. It named a specific date, and it all came true. Here’s Dusty!

  • had to wear ugly, brown, lace up shoes, with added arch supports,when all her friends were wearing cute sandals and mary jane shoes.
  • had to practice saying the word, ‘funeral’, because I kept saying, ‘FUN -eral’. I couldn’t figure out  what was so fun about funerals.
  • fell off my bike, got a scar on my knee, and destroyed a library book in the process. Then, I successfully (I think) hid torn up library book in the shelves. Oh, my first bike just happened to be a boy’s bike. Why, I don’t know. I didn’t like it, but now wish I had it, as I think it was an original Schwinn. (it may have been a Huffy, and the Schwinn came later?)

Here’s me, my infamous bike, and the ugly oxford shoes.

🙂 🙂 🙂

*** stay tuned for more!

Reposted here from April 17, 2014, as an A to Z Blog Challenge Letter O



Introduced in 1890, by Elijah Bond, as a harmless parlor game, the Ouija board has gained quite the negative reputation. It is a flat board, with numbers, letters, yes, no, sun, and moon, and good-bye, printed on it. A person/persons use a planchette to put their hands on, expecting the board to move the device around the board to spell out answers to the questions it’s been asked. Is this some sort of magic? Is it demonic? Is it just, as stated, a simple parlor game for kids?

I don’t know. Some people swear it is evil…that it opens a portal to the underworld and calls forth demons. Despite the warnings, the Ouija board game can still be purchased at toy stores today.

I had a Ouija board when I was a kid. Me and my friends played it all the time, with no ill effects. We’d ask silly questions…and it would move the planchette we had our hands on…and give us an answer. Most times it was right, and for a fact, we were not making it move. I don’t know how it works, but it does.

One question I asked it was, would I get a dog? It said yes. I asked when? It said January. (this was back in the fall). Sure enough, come January, I did get a puppy. I named him Dusty, and he was an awesome dog, who lived with us for many years.

Later on, my own kids were playing with a friend’s Ouija board, when they hollered, all excited, that they’d contacted a spirit called Seth. When I heard that, I made them stop, and told them the story I’d read about Seth.

It is written in a series of books, called “Seth Speaks”, by Jane Roberts. Her and her husband claimed they’d contacted the discarnate entity of Seth, and he was speaking through her. Her husband transcribed all she spoke, as Seth, and they wrote every dialog down in the book series. One of the main topics of the writings is, as Seth told them, that each individual creates their own reality.There is much, much more.

So, when the kids said they’d contacted Seth, I told them this and they put it away, never to play it again.
