HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIDNAPPING!
When I was a 14, I joined a teen square dance club called Goofers, which led to joys, heartbreaks and crazy adventures. We often performed at malls, car lots, fairs and parties. I was always a girly-girl who loved pink, short dresses and shiny jewelry. I loved twirling in square dance skirts, pettipants and dancing shoes. Mostly I loved hanging out with teen-dance friends that included my forever best friend Lori (who shared my birthday), first boyfriend Sherman and second boyfriend John. We were all together the night our square dance caller was kidnapped!
Always having an interest in writing, I kept sporadic journals. Here’s what I wrote about the birthday I turned 16:
