our coupon-o rama goodie page in 1970 from our panorama paper
this ad family restaurant uncle’ john’s,1404 fremont, which is close on fremont to the right of Maryland pkwy, in the 1970’s I dine here for breakfast with my boyfriend dan lee in 1972, this place had the best pancakes with strawberry syrup and yes this place was gone when I came back to las vegas in 1985.
in 1985 we had another uncle john’s on our las vegas strip by harmon, and today this is a denny’s.
in 1985 I met the manager of our uncle john’s on our las vegas strip to be a waitress and this interview I had with William, the manager , was all about who I knew in las vegas and how my friend I knew then helped William, and that is I honestly got a job there , not on my waitress experience I had then, and this job was not meant for me in 1985, I would be at our poker palace in north las vegas as a cocktail server for a few months where all casino employees pooled their tips. so I made no money and I left this job after a fe w months.
-our ad from uncle john’s in 1970 was a coupon fro a free stack of buttermilk pancakes , good thru mon- Friday and also every Friday at this cute place then we had all the fish you can eat for 1.49.

Here is my special message, I wrote about 2 years, when I starting writing my biography of living in las vegas, nv in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
I do have a message for all women in 2013 and from the 1970’s from my own life , that this rough lifestyle of being a prostitute, that from my own experience as 18 year old hooker, that this lifestyle is not good for anyone
in 1972, I had dreams of getting , a bachelor of psychology at unlv , and I destroyed this goal by leaving unlv and flunking out of college by being lured by the street for sex and money, to sell my body, to strange men at this time. I could never ever get this goal back ever and being a young woman and being a seller of sex, I really destroyed with my heart and soul, all my special goals in life. I also write that I really hurt emotionally and physically from being a prostitute and I felt embarrassed about my life and this took a long time to get over this hurt. I also write that when I came back to town, I felt all this emotional hurt again and wondered, if the few people I would re- meet in 1985 from twelve years ago , would throw this in my face my past or bring up the bad break up I had with my boyfriend dan in 1972 and no one did,
there is a meaningful message in my life story of being a hooker in 1972-1973, for 13 months of my life.
this is not a glamourous life for anyone and yes when I was seller of sex at 18 years young , this is how this felt , that I thought was so glamourous, to have money and apt, that I paid for and a car and I had no idea at this time, how much I could feel all used up inside and not want to be close or vulnerable to a man at a young age.
and I write as a hooker I took my life path down a different path, that will take your heart and soul, like my own experience, to have all my special purposes gone. this would take a long time to get this back,
I had the courage to stop being a prostitute and leave las vegas in july of 1973 and go home to start my life all over and go home to my parents and start over at junior college.
In February of 1985, I finally figured out I wanted to come back to our city of las vegas in march of 1985, I arrive here, I am so excited to get back here and I can be here and care about myself and have special goals with a fresh start as young woman at 31 years young.
I say to all of you,
There is always a way out of this life, if you want to get out and remember there is always hope to get back on the right path of life.
I have written this sincere message to help all out there on the streets, with my heart and soul
and with love.
thank you for reading this today
