Before opening this year's diary I wish to tell
you that I have a roaming husband with a roaming
mind. We are separated again for the third and
last time. The first time, August 9-19,1927; and
the second time, October 1-19, 1927; and the third
time, December 5, 1927. I love him very much and
miss him terribly. But I intend doing my duty. I
am not going to take him back. I am running around
with Rosa Mary Judy and she is somewhat a
consolation to me. We have resolved this New Year's
to take no men or nothing seriously. Let all men
go to hell! But we are not going to sit back and
let the world sweep by us.
January 1, 1928. New Year's nite. 12:00 The bells
are ringing, the old year has gone, and my heart
has gone with it. I have been the happiest and
most miserable woman this last year. I wish the
old year would have taken my past with it. I mean
all my memories, but I can't forget Roy. I am very
blue tonight. No word from him. I feel he has gone
for good. This is New Years Day, Jan. 1. I went to
a show. Saw Ken Maynard in The Overland Stage. Am
very blue. Well, I must confess this New Years nite
I got drunk, trying to forget. Drowning my sorrows
in bottled hell.
January 2, 1928. Met Rosa Mary today and we went
to a show. Saw Ronald Coleman and Vilma Banky in
A Night Of Love. Sure was a good show. Saw Scottie
and gave him the air. He's a pain in the neck to
me. Came home at 5:30. went to bed at 10:30.
Sure am lonesome.
Bonnie tried to forget how blue she was, by going
out mostly every night to see shows. In her diary,
she also mentions going out to see...
