Dear Diary,

Came home from Lynns about 2:00. Bob called & then came over. He’s nice. The Greenbergs came over. Uncle Ruby & I had a talk about Frank & he things I wasn’t (too) wrong in being picked up by him or giving him my address. God damn!!! I can’t get Frank off of my mind. Its driving me crazy!!!!!!!! Gosh but Uncle ruby is wonderfully understanding. He’s my favorite.

Uncle Ruby explained to me why he thought I was right in doing what I did & why I was wrong in ding what I did. He says if he asks me out I could go (if Mom lets me.) Uncle explained how a sailor feels when in & out of uniform. Gosh but Uncle Ruby’s wonderful!

Entry Ninety-Five

Monday Sat., May 5                           Weather marked as Clear

Dear Diary,

Went to Hollywood with Lynn. Coming home we met 2 sailors—Frank Hunter and Chuck Burke. We gave them our addresses, & they gave us their pictures & addresses.

Went on double date—Lynn, Ricky & Bob & me. Saw “The Thing” went to drive in had parfay malts. Parked. Necked. Bob asked me out for next Friday. Slept over at Lynns, got in a 2:30 a.m.

I was all wrong about Bob. I thought he was a drip but he turn out real nice. When we were parked, Ricky & Lynn kept making remarks about us. So Bob says to me “How about going out next weekend with me, without Ricky or Lynn.” Gads was I suprized! I said yes!!!!

Editorial Note:

The movie Lois saw on her double date was the 1951 Howard Hawks feature “The Thing From Another World.” Below is the original movie trailer that, perhaps, enticed Lois and her friends to purchase tickets.
