Dear Diary,

Bob is starting to warm up a bit. I never noticed how nice looking he was before. *I’m going to give him 2 years. If by that time there’s no spark……. I’ll try to forget him.

Dear Diary,

At 8:15 A.M. Marian called me & sayed we were going to a ball game. Well, 8:40 she picked me up and we went to witness the Burbank Jr’s against out men’s team. Met a guy named Paul White wanted me to go to a picnic at the last minute. I decided not to go. Art Freed was there too. Nancy went too. Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis what a terrific show.

Entry One Hundred Forty-Nine

Sunday Fri., July 6                Weather unmarked.

Dear Diary,

Tests today. Got A in Science, D in Spanish. Went out with Bob Ulis to show. Tried to hold my hand. Told him no. Saw Frogmen was excellent. Got home 12:40.

Editorial Note:

The Frogmen was an unremarkable 1951 adventure flick directed by Lloyd Bacon, and starred Richard Widmark, Dana Andrews, and Gary Merrill. None of those names ring a bell? Well, that’s not surprising since the film was tagged as “the sensational story of Uncle Sam’s Underwater Commandos! “ yet it failed to gain any historical traction. That said, they fight like men from another world, but they’ve got Texas, Brooklyn and Missouri written all over their hearts; what’s not to like! Check out the chuckle-worthy trailer below.
