Two whole weeks vacation! How I did enjoy that fortune telling. John - a cave man and practicing on me, too. Alice and Fred may have thought so but only I hear the whispered words close at my ear and felt the stolen kisses on my shoulder. But I could not loosen myself from your clasp. If I really had wanted to? Alice says I could but I doubt it. You will never let me get away! The cards also say that you are the most gentle and that you have the most and best excuses!!!! You are going to take me to Europe even though I'm going to marry Paul and you will marry Thelma. But I will be the wealthiest, look the best in a bathing suit, have the prettiest legs and the most limpid eyes. Fred is double crossing you! Watch your step!!! Alice loves you better than Fred so she must be the double crossing one! But who is Thelma? And what are cards?
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.
