October 5, 1967 - Wednesday
I realize its been a long
time since I've written but with school back, I haven't had much time.
Nothing spectacular has happened anyway.
Even now I'm pressed for time
so I'll fill you in quickly. I haven't gone to court yet, we're still
waiting for word. I've been going to school and its been pretty
screwed. I bought a Model 'A' Ford and I spend any free time fixing it
and fixing it and fixing it.
The couple working at the
vets were fired yesterday. The wife was a drug addict and stole quite
a bit of Morphine. Now she's in jail. I had gotten to know them quite
well and they seemed to like me. Oh well, now I work all alone again
everyday after school.
That's about it for now.
Maybe I'll write again some day.
P.S. I'm kind of fed up with

I haven't been writing
because I'm too lazy. I don't have any real hard subjects this year
and I'm really sloughing off on everything. Even if I do have some
homework I rarely do it.
Something has been building
up in me since school began and I suppose it started way before that. I have
been really sick and tired of this town, school and my parents. This
may sound overly dramatic but sometimes I feel so restless I nearly jump up
in class and scream. I really want to get away from this place and if
you want a clear cut reason, forget it because I'm hardly sure why myself.
I've become tied down to my job and school and parents. I've seriously
considered taking off but I'm too chicken.
My parents are going back
east on November 27 so for 10 days I'll be left alone. They don't know
how happy it will make me. I may not get out of town but it's just as

Remember the girl at school I
mentioned that I liked? Her name was Linda Barnes and last spring she
had me sign her yearbook.
Today she married a sailor
and dropped out of school.
