Friday, December 20th, 1974

We got out a few minutes earlier than expected even. I saw Jay at school and he told me he saw the new Showcase yesterday. I caught the regular bus home for a change and it was the most overcrowded bus I have ever been on! Still crowded when it arrived in Cincinnati!

I went straight to the theater to find out what time THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN started. Unfortunately, I had already missed the first showing which started at 11 so I decided to get my books and then catch the 1:05 showing.

Got a lot of mags and then went back just a little early. They raised their price to $3.50 but it was only $2.75 for the first two showings. It was really good! Probably make my Top Ten. Saw a review of it tonight though that really put it down. Next year's THE SPY WHO LOVED ME. On the way out, I picked up a free full color glossy of the poster. It looks great on the back page of my scrapbook.

APES' last episode was cut off locally for a Christmas special! Boy!

Mom gave me a present from her friend Agnes. A fancy dueling pistol shaped bottle filled with Avon cologne. It's really neat.

They're finally playing Donny and Marie's new record on the radio.

Missed my deadline on finishing my TREK story. Maybe I'll still keep going. maybe not.

NOTES: Seen here are both sides of the glossy I got on my way out that day.

Here is a quote (taken a little out of context) from the Police Woman episode "Shoefly" which aired on this date:

Sgt Crowley: "the baby... probably died of natural causes; Isn't that terrific?!"

(Had to share with somebody...)

Did you ever catch the last PotA episode? I just did, "Up Above the World So High" involving the science of flight; great episode! This show will be missed....

I have the whole series but forgot I had missed that final episode. Need to watch that. Thanks for the reminder! And thanks for sticking with me through 1974!
