Dear Diary,

Tonight was Bob Hope’s last show of the season. For thirteen weeks I’ll be completely Hopeless. Bob was broadcasting from a submarine base in New London, Connecticut, tonight. Since this was his last show he followed his regular custom of reviewing the shows of the past season. One of the gags he brought back was among my favorites. It was presented on the first program dramatizing his book. His mother said, “I’ve had children before, but this is ridiculous!” Later he and Skinnay were talking about girls. Skinnay asked Bob what girls were, and Bob said, “You know, those soft things you squeeze.” Skinnay said, “Oh, frogs!”

So long till next fall, Bob.
