Dear Diary,

I saw in the paper today that Madeleine Carroll and Stirling Hayden have begun a long-delayed honeymoon. Golly, what’s Bob Hope doing to do now. He can’t publicly chase a married woman, as he has been doing with Mady. I guess he’ll have to stick strictly so such gals as Hedy Lamarr, Paulette Goddard, and Dottie Lamour – at least until those fair damsels get hitched (again). Bob may surprise everyone and start talking about his wife. After all, he could have done much, much worse than he did. Mrs. H. is a might pretty gal to have for a wife.
