One of the first events to occur in 1960 was a snow storm. It was the coldest weather I'd ever experienced but I layered my clothing and went out to make a snowman. It was too cold for me, I couldn't handle the chill. I did make a snowball, but it looked more like a snow pancake than a snowball. School was closed for several days because of the snow, an unique experience for me.
I still didn't have a boyfriend, but I did date, usually a double date or within a group of my friends. Guy continued to hang out and we went to the drugstore fountain several times a week, usually after school.
Life was good, I was going to the movies, and I even went up to Munford and spent the weekend with my friend Sue. Her family welcomed me with open arms. I ran into my former arch enemy, Catherine. We discussed Maylon and decided we were both better off without him. I went to a school basketball game and saw Marion, who didn't speak to me.
Toward the end of January I decided to go to an All Hands Dance. I usually went to the dances several times a month, but this dance was different. Across the room I spotted a guy. Our eyes locked. I knew I wanted to meet him. Apparently the feeling was mutual. He asked me to dance.
