Sunday, June 23rd, 1974

My cold was some better today. I went with Dad to get chicken and hamburgers and took some pictures, too.

Mom and Dad went to the ball game later but I stayed home.

IT.

The paper had ads for about five movies I want to see soon.

Didn't get to sleep until very late tonight because there was a big flying bug in my room. We never got it either. All we did was get it out of there.

NOTES: I think this was one of the photos I took that day. If so, then it must have quit raining before the Reds game. 


Sometimes, like today apparently, we'd get a combination of Famous Recipe Fried Chicken (on the left one block ahead in this pic...and still in 2012 come to think of it--and White Castles. We only lived 4 blocks from the chicken place so we only drove if we were getting the hamburgers, too, as they 7 blocks or so further up from this shot.


I hated those flying bugs---big ol' things supposedly brought back from Florida by other tenants. I'd bounce around my bedroom from the bed to the desktop swatting at 'em with a broom and making sure everyone else in the house was awake to help! Haven't seen one in years luckily. In fact, nowadays we just get the occasional bat!
