Miss Norma’s Diary – February 19, 1962 – “I just feel, all the time, that I have nothing but worries on my mind”

Monday

“Today I got all ready to go to school and it started raining. So Connie and I stayed home. We were real happy. She went home about 1:30. After Barbara got home we went down the street. A.T. was in the record store. Later, Charlie drove by and he looked at us. When we went up by the bowling alley that fat guy that Barry and Ralph go around with was out there and he started yelling to us. Then when we had walked a little farther, we looked back and Ralph was out there with him. They were watching us. When we walked by there, Ralph was us at Dave’s car. We walked by there a few times then we gave up. We hadn’t seen Barry at all so far, at least if we did, we didn’t know about it. he might have been up at Dave’s car. When we were down the street, I saw this guy sitting in the in the Hi Sea Cafe. I stared at him and he stared at me. He was real cute and Barbara knew who he was. Then later we saw Charlie again, he looked at us as he drove by. Barbara and I got jazzed.

I saw Don today and the other Don today. Last night I dreamt about (the second) Don, Barry and Ralph. When I was laying on my bed today listening to my records, I almost started crying. I just feel, all the time that I have nothing but worries on my mind. When Barb and I were down the street today, it started raining, just then Barbara’s folks drove by so they took us home. When we got out of the car at Barbara’s house, I saw Ralph and that fat guy walking the way I go home. So Barbara and I jumped in the car and we drove by Ralph. We peeped the horn at them. I was so nervous. I didn’t look but Barbara said Ralph looked. When I looked back, Ralph was not looking. I really got disappointed then. So, Barbara brought me home and I started drinking and it made me feel terrible. Barry’s address: (omitted) And Ralph’s is (omitted) Ralph’s car licence is: (omitted)

Barbara and I walked by the Bar-B-Q Pit today and I think I saw Little Hick working in there. At night, I stayed home and watched television. It was very boring. I wanted to go down to Barbara’s house but I don’t think she wanted to watch and see if Ralph would come over to Mike’s. I don’t know why it wouldn’t do me much if he did. I am so jazzed on Barry. I feel terrible all the home. How lousy.”

Miss Norma’s Diary – February 18, 1962 – “Mike yelled out “Baby” and he gave us the finger and they drove off.”

Sunday

“Today Barbara and I were going down the street and we saw Ralph in his car, he was about to drive away but when he saw us, he waited and when we got up there we had to walk in in back of his car. Man….was I jazzed. Then we saw Charlie drive by, he had a girl with him but she wasn’t sitting next to him. She had a little kid sitting on her lap. Then later, we saw Charlie drive by with A.T. Then we were going up the street and Ralph and Barry and Mike drove up and stopped. Barry said, “What are you doing, where you going” Then he said, “want a ride’. We said no. Mike yelled out “Baby” and he gave us the finger and they drove off.

Then a few minutes later, they drove by again and they had a girl with them. She was up front with Ralph but she was sitting by the door. Barbara and I were mad. But we were sure glad that girl wasn’t sitting by Ralph or in between Barry and Ralph. Barry was in the back seat. Then they drove by once more ad they were messing off. At night, Barbara and I went down to her house cause she had to get some clothes to wear tomorrow and I wanted to see if Barry and Ralph would come over to Mike’s. About 8:00 o’clock I was looking out of the window and I saw Ralph’s car coming and it stopped at Mike’s house. I yelled to Barbara, “There’s Ralph” and I was trying to get over to the door to get out to see Ralph but Barbara was so excited she wouldn’t move so I couldn’t get to the door. Anyway, Mike jumped out of Ralph’s car and Ralph drove off real fast. We were both shook.

This after noon we were at Barbara’s house and we played records. We had the record player turned up real loud and we were dancing and we had the front door open. Joy came over but we didn’t answer the door. We sure did have a blast today. We walked home from Barbara’s house. We walked by Barry’s but didn’t see anybody. We also saw Bennie and Asa. Wally and Ray drove by and peeped the horn. I saw Bruce and Don today.”

Saturday

“Today Barb and I were in the record store and Ralph came in. Then we were going down the street and Charlie drove by. He looked at us. Then later Barbara and I had the car and we were driving all around. We saw Ralph’s car parked on Loring Street but we don’t know which house is his. At night, Barbara and I went to the show. Mike was there and so was Charlie and A.T. Every time we walked by Mike he would say, “Baby” Charlie kept looking at us and we looked at him too.”

Miss Norma’s Diary – February 16, 1962 – “he said, ‘Why don’t you go and sit up there with Mike?'”

Friday

“Today I didn’t go to school at night. I went to the show with Barbara. Barbara and I went driving today. Mike, Barry, that fat guy, A.T., and a lot of other people were there. A.T. Kept looking at us. Barry didn’t pay attention to us until the last of the show. When we were going up the isle Mike called either Barbara or I a slut. But I’m pretty sure he said it to her. So is she. Barry came down and sat behind me, he kept kicking my chair, so I moved. Then he came up there and he said, ‘Why don’t you go and sit up there with Mike?’ I guess he was talking to me”. I don’t know. Barry is getting worse instead of better and pretty soon I don’t think I will care what the hell he does. I wish he wouldn’t go around with Mike. I called Barry a f**cker tonight because he said something to me. I think he called me a pig. I want to go to the show tomorrow night. Maybe Mike won’t be there. But maybe Barry won’t be either. But Ralph might be.”

Miss Norma’s Diary – February 13, 1962 – “Barry was out there flipping coins”

Tuesday

“Today I went to school. After school we went down the street cause she didn’t go to get her (?). We didn’t see anybody we knew. When we were going home we went by Barry’s house. We didn’t see anybody there. So, I decided to go on to Barbara’s house. A few houses down from Barry’s, Barry was out there flipping coins. I don’t know if he saw us or not. I think he did but he didn’t pay any attention to us if he did. Barb said, ‘Maybe Barry doesn’t live where we thought he does.’ At night I stayed home and watched television.”
