Wednesday - and you are not here. My buddy - your buddy misses you. I wonder how much you miss me. I have been thinking of you all evening. So many Wednesdays you have held me close in yoru arms and showered me with kisses. I know you love me, John. Je t'aime, Jean.
This is the journal of Virginia Lee Scott, my grandmother, written when she was seventeen and first dating my grandfather, John Arnold Wilson. It's a dairy published by Media Drug Stores and includes space for two entries per day, with facts about the era printed at the bottom, which I have included in italics. Following, 1928, is the journal of John Arnold Wilson, my grandfather, at age nineteen and in love with my grandmother, followed by my grandmother's journal in 1931.
