Dear Diary: While the cat's away the mice will play. In this case the cat was Michelle in China and I was the mouse playing a round of golf at Joint Base Andrews, with trip director Marv Nicholson, his brother Walter, and White House advance man Luke Rosa. They very sensibly made it an easy 'victory' for me. Then it was back into the belly of The Beast for a brief journey home, a spliff of Blueberry Yum Yum, a giant steak, fries, ketchup and a pint of Haagen Dazs. I followed this with an episode of the National Geographic channel's 's Alaska State Troopers. Alaska is a state somewhere near Canada where there are moose, bear, tree-fellers and snowmobiles. Marv records the show on my DVR. But enough about me.
