Went to 12:00 mass & at 2:00 Albert called & I went to N. Holly to pick him & his girl Rosemary up. We then drove to the beach & came back & then Mary & I & Al & Rosemary went to the Florentine Gardens. We had a swell time & Albert was the host. He bought a bottle of Burgundy champagne & we had a wonderful dinner & saw a swell show. Mary & I danced two dances & we took them home & was in bed at 1:30.
