Long time no see! I was away with family this last week but I’m back in my snowy home once more and ready to get back to work :)

Went to school. Gave my report in General Science. Gave a book report. Went to volleyball tonight. Went to the concert at 7:00 o’clock. Took tickets. Stood for an hour + a half. Jack, Dave, Jim, + George stood beside me all the time I was taking them. Tonkin, Hines, Cheese, + PeeWee went to MacTireys. Got a hamburger + a root beer. Tonkin walked home with me. Can’t write good. Sore finger.

No school. Got up at 11:00. did dishes moped the floor. Stay home all afternoon while mom went to the hospily. Gene will be home in 6 days. Got a sunday with Bud. Went to the Temple and saw “Hollywood Canteen.” It was a wonderful show. 62 movie stars. Joan Leslie + Robert Hutton were the main characters. When mom got home we did the supper dishes. Going to read a love book + eat!


The Temple Theatre! I was hoping Grandma would talk about that one. It was built in 1927 and is still running in Saginaw. It did have a down period by the time I was around but I remember my grandmother(and everyone else who remember it) talking about the theatre as this amazing, grand place. I finally got a chance to see inside of it for a field trip when I was in high school (a group was trying to bring it back). We got to see some stage performances of some of Edgar Allen Poe’s work. I was amazed at the theatre and everything it had. It was hauntingly beautiful and you could tell it really needed work. It was revamped in 2002 (back to what it looked like in 1927 too!) and is now an amazing place for shows and weddings (with your name on the marquee!).  It’s been doing well since then and is getting Saginaw good publicity, which it needs.
