Yesterday my BF sent me this picture of a letter that she found from 1979. She had written it to her mother while away at camp. I hated it when she left for camp, it was only for a week but it seemed like a lifetime. And since none of the other neighborhood kids were interested in anything like fashion magazines or singing Broadway musicals, I was forced to entertain myself (that’s when I learned all of the words to “A Star is Born”, but that’s another story). I remember promising her that I’d write her every day about what happened with Luke and Laura on General Hospital and keep her posted on who was on the cover of the next month’s Vogue. I love that she still has this letter and I love how she wanted the “addition” not the “edition”. Such great memories.
PS This is the 1979, August issue featuring Kim Alexis.
