Dawned bright & cold. Up at 9, watched “This Week with David Brinkley.” George Shultz was solid & good. Then at 11:30 A.M. left for W.H.—there at 12 noon (had a tailwind). Both of us brought back most of clothing we had at Camp David. Only one or two more weekends left up there. I spent the afternoon at my desk. Then the Kennedy Center Honors reception 5:20 P.M.— W.H. Honorees—Alvin Ailey, George Burns, Myrna Loy, Alexander Schneider & Roger Stevens.

1st the reception & a receiving line of about 350—many of them old friends—Bob Hope, Claudette Colbert—well the list is too long. Then upstairs a fast dinner with Merme & Dennis & Ted Graber. Then over to the Kennedy Center—a great show honoring the 5 & a surprise finale when they did a tribute to Nancy & me with Auld Lang Zyne.
