23rd & 24th June 1979

Saturday 23
Worked 10.00 - 6.15 = wet (I am now back in the Outdoor cafe... it was a wonder we didn't close up as it was wet)
Phoned him at 12.30

He didn't get in until 4.30 am this morning (no wonder he didn't ring the night before!)
Rang him at 7.45

Went babysitting at 8.00 pm

He rang
me at midnight but I wasn't back from babysitting (bet Mum was pleased ... not!)
Phoned him when I got home but the phone was engaged

Sunday 24th
Supposed to work but was rained off (I guess they made no money yesterday) Stayed in all day
Made a pencil skirt out of the same material as Sam's jacket (so easy to make. 70s top tip never try climbing onto a bus with one on)
Sam phoned

He went to Donnington Park to Formula one
racing this afternoon
Phoned Fi at 10.00 she had just got in.

Well Wimbledon fortnight has started and yes it is raining... well it is up North.

I was lucky enough to go to the event in 1977. I hav
e posted about it on here when I did a whistle stop tour of 1977 from memory and my scrapbook as I couldn't find my diary of then... but I have found it now

23rd June 1977
Wimbledon Trip

Saw Chris Evert
Fiback (Wojtek Fibak)
Motram (Buster Mottram) Rameries (Raul Ramirez)
12 hours on a coach (see back pages of diary)
(this is crossed through and marked CENSORED!!!)
We spent 12 hours on the coach
It was very boring on the way there

On the way back SP came to sit next to me on the
We talked for a couple of hours & then he started to get randy (OMG!!)
He tried to get his hand up my skirt
I managed to fight him off (good girl)

Bev & Jane got DS's trousers off (OMG!!)

It's funny I don't fancy SP but I feel strangely attracted to him (OMG all those hormones!!)

Both Bev & Jane fancy DS (there will be tears I can just tell)

Anyway moving swiftly on lol

I took this photo
& bought this brochure

In 1979 the brochure looked pretty boring

Björn Borg won the mens singles beating Roscoe Tanner 6-7(4), 6-1, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4
& Martina Navrátilová won the ladies singles beating Chris Evert 6-4, 6-4 (gosh that was over quickly!!)

My mind is boggling about what the censored bit said ...... probably something about trying to sharpen your pencil skirt using a ..... oh well, I suppose we'll never know ....

Diane said...

Oh dear, sorry you are having horrible weather, it's not too bad 'darn Sarf'although all that looks set to change as soon as I get to Wimbledon and then Glastonbury - double whammy! My son is doing a sun dance to try and get us nice weather but I'm not holding my breath!
Anyway, one things for sure, we won't have as much fun on the journey there and back as you seemed to have had! :-)

fracas said...

Goodness, only tears over the two girls/one boy thing? Today it might end up on youtube. My how things have changed.

And shame on you DP, for wanting to know the censored parts.

Sheesh. Keeping company with a bra is having a (somewhat predictable) effect on you. We should probably warn Olga's mistress.

Daddy Papersurfer said...

I am shamed ....... tee hee

70steen said...

hi dear Frac... you know I thought exactly the same thing, how today it would have all been recorded on a mobile phone lol
