Up at 6:00 just to say goodbye. Dick home for a stolen moment at 8:30. Off again at 9 I slept after fiishing “Midnight Cowboy.” Woke at 11-called Irene to say I’d be late. Made bed etc. bathed went to the bank + over to Irenes. Pleasant visit. Left at 2:30. Went shopping at Safeway + over to Vegas Village for prints. Not ready yet. Put down deposit at Westward Ho for Liza + John. Called Ethel’s knitting bar but the sweater not ready yet. She’ll have it tomorrow. Dick home + we went out + looked at a few houses. Depressing as hell. And my mood contagious. Nice letter from Daddy + also from Bess. WE took a npa. Leon called + told me to call him back. Secrets-called + a friend of his has made a fur cape for me which Leon is going to send. All a bit confusing but quite exciting. I fixed dinner except that it took forever + we didn’t eat til ten o’clock-outside on the patio. However we talked alot in the waiting period over drinks + we’ve decided to buy land in Paradise Valley + build ourselves. A relief to make the decision. We went to bed about eleven. Also talked about weight + I told Dick to ask Bentley. He weight 169 or 15lbs over average and 29lbs over “ideal”-for his weight. He had great resistance at first to the idea but then admitted in 1957 he weight 150lbs + could do anything + everything he doesn’t now + more.
