RE-EVALUATING JOHNNY HALLYDAY
"He’s got a huge backing group; their dance movements killed me."

Got up at 11.30. Wrote all my thank you letters. Started on ‘Dorian Gray' by Oscar Wilde.
Went out in my cloak and hood to get a bit of exercise in the garden. Dreadful weather. It looked like the end of the world.
Ma is trying to get people together for a party on New Year’s Eve and Chump suggested the Goldmans. If only David, Cherry and Mark could come!
There was a Gala Show from Paris on TV – who was on but Johnny Halliday! Chump and me were very pleasantly surprised. Funnily enough he reminded me of Paul Jones. His hair is longer than I thought and his skin looked golden. He’s really rather sweet. He sang 'Aussi Dur que du Bois’ - 'Knock on Wood' in French! It went on for literally ages. He’s got a huge backing group; their dance movements killed me.
Looked through Which University – it’s so marvellous. I’ve decided I have a choice of the following subjects I can do with French: they are Art, Drama, English, German, and European Studies. At the moment I’d most like to do French, Drama & German at Bristol, because the Drama includes Art. Bristol’s a super place with a lot of culture.
Wish my Diary wasn’t falling to bits.
