I cut my teenage years short to get married. I do remember going to activities at my church & later ball games. My boyfriend played basketball & football.

I loved watching American Bandstand

Our family spent summers in a lake cabin - lots of friends there and swimming daily sometimes all day. As I grew older I took the WSI course and was a water swimming instructor for about 4 years through college.

Not sure all the things we did in winter but every week end had something going on. Lots of fun and safe stuff, never would do damage or harm...

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of May 2019. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2019 to be back to below 155.

I also spent a lot of time and the outdoor swimming pool and loved to swim. I had blonde hair and it actually turned green from the chlorine. That is how much time I spent in the water.

Went to the Friday Night Sock Hops - they were held at an all boy high school after the football game. I went to a an all girl high school. We actually had to take our shoes off to save the gym floor.

Went to the drive in movies

Was on Detroit dance band (TV), it was copied after American Band Stand out of Philadelphia.

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

One day I won't be able to do this, but today is not that day

We had Friday night dances at the rec center put on by a local radio station, and Saturday night dances at a local Catholic school.

We worked at a local store in my senior year and after work sometimes we went bowling, sometimes we went to a local restaurant that was a teen hangout to get something to eat.

We lived close to Atlantic City and saw quite a few singers. Frankie Avalon, Fabian, Bobby Rydell, Paul Anka and more. It was a fun time to live.

What did you do for fun in your teens ?
I loved dancing and we went in groups to afternoon dances called a'Fair" which was held from 2- 6 pm.
We also went to lots of matinee shows at the cinema.
We admired singers like Bobby Darren, Rick Nelson, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino , Pat Boone.
It was a fun time indeed.
