Another perfect day here in glorious Beverly Hills. My pal, Glenn Miller (his real name), and my beautiful Polynesian Hawaiian girl, Mlle. X, met me at the very nearby Beverly Hills Hotel for lunch. We walked through the nearly deserted lobby, past the gorgeous entrance to the Polo Lounge (named in an era when movie stars really played Polo in Beverly Hills, then had drinks at the BH Hotel). Then down past the closed milkshake bar and through a lovely garden of hydrangeas to a long set of stairs to the pool.

As usual, the dining area was bright and cheerful. It has a glorious view out over the pool, which is large and immaculate and blue. We sat down at our usual table and for some reason that I don’t recall, Mlle. X asked me about the origins of World War Two. I told her it all started with World War One.

"What was that?" she asked. "You really don’t know?" I asked her with a smile.
