Trip Extended

Got up thinking we’d leave today but Norris called and said to try the office at Waikiki and they had reservations for the 8th so we decided to stay. Potts and I celebrated at the Royal with pineapples. Went out to tell Howard, and Roane gave us a bottle of champagne. Everyone at P Club about 5:00 – saw our boat go – haha. Date with Norris at 6:30 – at dinner with a bunch of the boys at his place. Had grand game of bridge – played records, danced, talked.

A Nice Burn

Spent most of the day on the beach and got a nice burn. Met someone else today. It seems to be the custom on Waikiki. Went down to the Pavillion and fooled around a bit. Got Potts to bring me home and got a nap. Lou Bingham called for a date Saturday night. Had drinks and dinner with the Whitakers. Dick called from a stag party – completely stewed. Floyd Colley came after me and we had some drinks. Met Walter (?) of the “O’s”(?).

Another Day

Went down to the boat to see Gee and Jean off – saw them for a minute. Potts slept through it – got stinking. Had lunch at the Halekelaui and went to the B. P. Dropped by the Pavillion. Dick came over and we fixed supper and went for a beautiful ride way up on Tantalus – overlooking the city. L.D. (late date?) with Norris – played bridge til some 4:00AM! And had a wonderful time.
