Excerpt from the diary. June 2. “Today was nice I sleapt till I got a call from Wendell that the horse was out. I gardined a bit then went to the play. The matine was dead energy level was low. I went running & then went to the evening performance. What an audience!! The show was rad. Steve put his arm around me and said your lips are like cherries. I didn’t know what to do he’s sweet but I’m going with Walter I sort of shunned him. I fealt bad about it. I was sure that he knew about Walter & I didn’t know his intentions. Then Miriam told me he did it to her & I felt OK. I told Walter he got a little protective & then his Moe jumped down his throat. The new part to his kite is wrong.”

Excerpt from the diary. June 1. “All in all today was good. I awoke to Moe telling me my horse was out. I searched for him then found him put him back & then he got out before i fixed the fence. Fix fence BEFORE putting horse back!! I knew it was a possibility but I was optimistic & tired. Got to school dragged around while lots of minute details including the bus ride home and Walter needed the truck. We never did go get parts they weren’t in. We had fabulous soup. It was extremely intense. It was the best it has ever been for me. I don’t know how to describe it now. I liked the play. Just tonight I regretted not signing up for some other play.”

Excerpt from the diary. May 31. “I liked the play! I think I did a good job even though I was a platypus. The Hippopotamus said I was doing a good job. Then I was late on entrance to the finale it wasn’t a very big deal although I think The Hippopotamus saw when I realized the play was just about to start. When I got home Walter was waiting for me in my cupboard. He couldn’t stay because Moe knew he was there (she saw him) & we spent ninety nine minutes chasing my horse & trying to find him. Walter thinks he spooked him on his way here. The family pet was snip-snip. Walter just called. He got into an accident but is ok he has a swollen elbow. O dear.”
