Monday, May 3rd, 1976

They showed us part of an animated version of ANIMAL FARM in school today to go along with the book we've been reading. Had some slight trouble with a Physics test last period. Only 21 more days of school left.

Mom home early again today. I read some more of the SUPERMAN book after I got home.

For lack of better TV fare, I ended up watching and enjoying TRUE GRIT for the third time this evening.

NOTES: ANIMAL FARM is, of course, George Orwell's satirical look at communism as told through the eyes of anthropomorphic farm animals. In 1954, it was also the subject of the very first feature-length animated movie ever made in the UK. It flopped as it looked like a kids film but most definitely wasn't. The movie was made by John Halas and Joy Batchelor who were partners both in life and animation.
