- Day 4 Wednesday 31st August 1977
Boy oh boy, what a morning ! What should we do ?! I felt terrible, it was a big decision, Donny or Universal Studios. Angela became brave and phoned KTLA Studios. We couldn’t get out the info if the Osmonds were in so we couldn’t decide any better, it was suggested phoning Aydin at 4, that would be too late ! We went shopping up the Mall and returned still not having made up our minds. We were to leave at 1245, it was now 1230, getting nearer all the time. We decided we must go to Universal Studios incase Donny was not there ! It was terrible after we boarded the coach. We waited for Ron, our courier, and I mentioned to Ang about the only chance left was to meet Donny tomorrow with all the other girls ! Ang started crying, so did I. We drove away & tape recorder played Donny & Marie singing. Oh boy it made us worse ! Friends asked if we were ok, they thought it was because of the tape. We eventually stopped crying & half hour later we arrived at Universal Studios.
We got onto a tram which took us half way round & looked at few amusements and carried on round site. We went over a bridge that “collapsed”, saw “Jaws”, he came out of the water very close sprouting out water towards us !
We had a walking tour around the Studio, looking at props used in “Bionic Man”, how he lifts large vehicles etc. We saw the different weather effects they use. A Cowboy Stunt Show was good, a real laugh. Three cowboys were fighting and at the end of the show, one cowboy jumped from the top of an inn onto a mattress,
then an Animal Show, a parrot was given a drinks bottle & drank from it as he rolled over & over ! They also had a star dog, using a boy from the audience to perform tricks with him. After this show it was home time, a very enjoyable day. Goodnight everybody !
