July 8, 1967 - Sat
I worked almost a full day so
right now I'm pretty tired. It's getting to the point where I almost
enjoy the work. I get a satisfaction out of the companionship of the
job and doing something useful. (The money helps a bit)
I've been thinking a lot
about this hippie jazz but when it comes right down to things, it's no big
deal. There are no hippies around Coronado so I might as well start my
own hippie movement. I wish I could find one to talk to.
There is one thing that I
can't go along with and that's the money thing. I like it too much to
give it up. However, I do go along with all their other ideas.
July 12, 1967 - Wednesday
I haven't been doing much
lately except for a bit of skin diving. I've been thinking quite
seriously about buying a V.W. By this Friday I should have earned over
$400 so then I will seriously get down to looking. I plan to do most
looking on the bases around here since many military men get in a bind at
this time of year (being transferred & all). Four hundred isn't very much
but when they're moving in a week they tend to lower the prices.

Today I went to the
optometrist because of my head aches and eye strain. I have 20-20
vision however I do have an astigmatism along with a little trouble reading
close print. I will have to have reading glasses. I really don't mind.
I started my search for a car
today but for my money I shouldn't have much luck. I'll just have to
keep it up for a while.
