and Ralph |
Came to my
house and brought the stereo downstairs. At about 5 to eight
I called Alan to see if he was still coming and he said Richard
hadn't showed up yet. I told him to come anyway and he got here
at 8:20. He said he'd called Hilljones
[sic] but there was no answer. Father drove them
home at around 10 pm].
Dave's bike to Ralph's, Dave there. We talked about Star Trek
etc. Got a ride home with Mr. deSmit.
and I went to the shops, got donuts and got the car keys from
my old lady [there shopping]
and sat in the Lincoln. Lunch-Dave, Ralph, Linda and I went
to the C.C. and sat in the corner, then we went back in, then
Ralph, Linda, Richard and I went to the C.C. under the trees.
Dave came, they were kicking around Linda's purse. I piggybacked
Linda in from the C.C. [...Called Alan
at 6:25 to ask if he was going to Fairview tonight but he
wasn't. Dave called at 10 pm]. nite-about 7
Richard came over, sat in my room. We talked, asked each other
questions. He left at 9, noticed
the weed plants had come up.
and I went to the shops, Richard caught up with us on
the way down. Got donuts, sat in Topaz. Art-many jokes
about elephants, chorus lines. Lunch-Dave, Ralph, Linda
and I went to the C.C., Linda and I went back, throwing
snow at each other on the way. In the school met Richard.
He, Linda and I had a snowball fight outside near the
aud. Dave and Ralph came, went in the school, then out
again with Dave, Ralph and Linda to the C.C. on the
sidewalk. Math-(Miss Hunt, Dear!)
[poor Miss Hunt]. [After
school Dave and I went to PAPT [on
the corner of Hymus and Alston] to get our
Social Security forms and then went to Fairview. I bought
flash batteries [ie: for flash
on my camera], and "Benefit" by
Jethro Tull. Took pictures. [...]
got home at 6....after supper Dave and I left for Alan's]. nite-at about 7:50 Dave and Ralph came over, didn't
do much [When we got there Alan
was mad because his intercom wasn't working. We brought
it out to the front of the basement + plugged it in
there and it worked. So eventually we got 2 ext. cords
+ left plugged in same socket but we got it into the
back of the basement [got that?].
I took a few pictures. We talked about commercials etc]..
Andy came about 10:30, we watched the newest movie.
They left about 1:10 [more
was Lesley's birthday and Mrs. Wiseman wanted us all to be
there at 8 pm to surprise Lesley. During the daytime there
was nothing to do and no one knew for sure if they were going.
Eventually we got it all settled and Diane (had to go to sister's)
+ Andy (didn't feel like it) were the only ones who wouldn't
come. At that point Lesley called called and asked me and
Alan if we would come over tonite as there was nothing to
do but we both made up an excuse. Dave got here at 6:30 and
by the time we were all finished [doing
what? eating dinner? wrapping presents?] it was
10 to 8].
picked up at the St John's by Ralph, Danielle and Dave were
in the car. [We got dropped off
at the end of the street because we didn't want the car to
drive up [and alert Lesley to our
arrival]. We just walked in like we'd been told
to do and Sandy and Judy F. directed us downstairs. We sat
there for about 10 minutes when there was a knock on the door.
Lesley answered and Bob + Cathy came in
[and ruined part of the surprise, I think].
Then Judy came down and told us to hide in the back room].
We drove to Lesley's and snuck in and hid in the small room
in the basement. After 45 minutes [while
Lesley ate and watched TV
[was this some kind of revenge on Judy and Sandy's part? Why
wasn't Lesley lured downstairs earlier?] Lesley
came down, and we came out and surprised her (it was her birthday).
Judy, Sandi [Sandy
didn't come down the whole night except to bring the cake],
Bob and Cathy were there. [I took pictures
and Alan kept blinding me with the flash]. Sat
on the floor, went outside and threw snow at each other,
[everybody tripped everyone else + covered them with snow;
Lesley got the bumps and then I got them because they hadn't
given them to me on Tuesday. I got snow all down my back etc.
