June 5, 1967 - Monday
I went to see "Naked
Prey" last night and I thought it was an exceptional movie. I'll
probably go again tomorrow. It stared Cornel Wilde who also directed.
I really enjoyed the scenes of Africa and I liked the way he portrayed the
Africans. He really goofed in one scene though. You could see a
Land Rover moving between the trees in the distance.
I'm getting along pretty well
with Al, the new man at the vet hospital. He seems to like me and he
even said he'd put in a word for me as far as the summer job is concerned.
It's really hard for me having a new boss because he's not too familiar with
the work. I hate telling him how to do things so I have to use quite a
bit of diplomacy.
One good thing about having
someone new is that it boosts my moral. I'm no longer the new kid.
I'm learning quite a bit more in that the doctor likes to teach both of us
the same stuff. I'm no longer just a cage swabber.
I still don't know about
working in the summer. As it is the other boy will probably be working
but with Al pulling for me I may get more of a chance.
The Beatles just put out a
new album called "Sgt. Peeper's" and they've been playing it a lot. So
far I really like what I've heard and I'll probably pick it up at the Navy
Exchange. I got their "Revolver" album and I really like the way they
did the stereo effects.
So far besides the Beatles,
I've been listening to Buffalo Springfield and The Jefferson Airplane.
This type of music is really different from the surfing albums Barry has.
