Wait… Mom liked pin-up/muscle boys? This is not the woman who raised me!!! Haha. Oh how she mocked me for buying Tiger Beat. I could tell I am not a 16 year old girl because now I am much more interested on the things that were on the back of the clip outs. Lots of them backed onto a comics page and I kinda wish that they’d included all the comics. Remember the weekend comics – the “colour comics” – what a big deal they were!! And then when they started printing them as their own little book!!! Oh I loved that. Anyway, I included some of the backs of the clippings as well.

By now you have probably gotten my postcard. Marilyn’s baby was born on the 21st. It’s a little girl. She weighs 8lbs 4 oz. I haven’t seen her yet.
I got a letter from Barbara yesterday. It was very nice to hear from her.
It is raining out now.
I am going to the show tomorrow to see “The Wayward Bus”
My newest records are:
Jenny, Jenny – Little Richard
Elvis’ new one is really cute. “Love Letters in the Sand” is still number one.
I am sending you some more pin-ups of the Mr. America contest. Boy that Deanne Cates is in everything. I think I am finally getting a little tan. I haven’t been to the beach for a couple of days now.
Well Margaret, I will have to close now, for the mailman is coming. Will write later. Write me soon.
Love to all
