Susan was here at 4 help with last min. things. By 5:45 everyone was here. We surprised Rebecca by having her birthday at the same time. Alan had strung balloons on the crape paper. Each balloon had a no. in it that corresponded with a prize. Clothes pins in a bottle determined who broke the first balloon and so on. Every one had a hat, including Popoki [the cat], and two balloon noisemakers. Mother fixed the Hot Dogs and we stuffed ourselves to the Beatles, Monkees, Humperdink, and the like, with Alan running the phono. When STAR TREK came on you could have heard a pin drop, it was so quiet. These girls aren't kidding when they say they like STAR TREK. Scronch of nuts and candy during commercials but not during the show. After STAR TREK everyone helped themselves to what they wanted to eat, while Alan played more records. We played the 1st and 2nd albums by LEONARD NIMOY and the 45 that had two of the songs from his new album. [She describes opening a letter and getting a document that says "To the 'Hobbit of the Year' S. Cornellie Cole. This award for being so great from 'There and Back Again' Chapter of LNNAF.].... I had to wait 40 years for a thrill like this and it was worth it I can tell you! Ever since I read the first Hobbit book as a girl (yes, Susan I was once a girl.; I was at heart a HOBBIT. Now it is OFFICIAL even to a name, SAMWISE GAMGEE." }}
