Tuesday, March 16th, 1976

Lots of hard work at school today. Hope I slid by. A little baby was brought into Mr Shoemaker's class today. Not sure whose it was. In history class we were shown twenties and thirties films. Because Holmes is in the basketball championships, we'll get next Thursday off but we'll have to go next Monday and make it up on June 2nd. Oh, well.

Still no TBG and I still haven't been able to get hold of Terry.

Mom suggested that maybe we could take a Greyhound up to Dayton to see the Kenley Players this summer. Haven't heard back from Omnicon yet but we're still planning to go to Louisville for that this summer, also.

Winter was back with a vengeance today! Tons of snow this morning and still more tonight.

Tonight on TV the highlight was an Arbor Day Charlie Brown special.

NOTES: The Kenley Players was actually a circuit of theaters throughout Ohio that rotated a slate of traveling theatrical productions each summer, usually with one to three well-known TV or movie stars backed up by both Broadway and regional talent. Since my dad refused for some reason to drive outside of the Greater Cincinnati area, we rarely went and when we did, we had to take the Greyhound bus the 50 miles to Dayton, Ohio. Over the years, though, I did see Karen Valentine, James Naughton, Rose Marie, Lucie Arnaz, Terrance Monk and Dick Gautier. My dad later went on his own to see Tim Conway and I've always regretted not going.
