Wednesday, December 15, 1976

Bad day, saleswise.

Worried about my new locker.

Again I made up with Mona.

Got good grade and praise for my SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES book report. Also got a 91 on a spelling test.

I ordered three books.

Saw Raquel on one of two good Christmas specials tonight.

NOTES: All the talk here a while back about SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES got me to dig out my copy---yes, the exact same copy I wrote the above-mentioned book report on--and give it to my fifteen year old son. He's carrying it in his backpack and reading it off and on at school as time permits. The same copy of the same book at the same school 35 years later. 

Raquel Welch's career was actually on a downswing at this stage. She really never had a starring role in US film again. Instead, she toured nightclubs with her singing act but she really wasn't that good. She came to the Beverly Hills Supper Club a year or so after this and my friend Terry (an even bigger fan of hers than I was) and I had planned to go see her but never went for some reason. Well...that's my memory. Terry tells me that HE actually DID go to see her...and that I actually went WITH him!!! I swear I didn't.

  1. Ms. Welch was on NBC's "The Mac Davis Christmas Special: When I Grow Up" along with Richard "John-Boy" Thomas. Earlier on the same channel was "The John Davidson Christmas Show"
