I thought that I'd posted this already, but I haven't seen it pop back
up here. Apologies if this is a duplicate.

05 Feb (Sunday) or
06 Feb (Monday)
   -- "Day One" (entry in Laura's diary). Day One of what? Laura and
      James' relationship is my guess. During Cooper's questioning of
      James, he asked what happened on 2/5, and James flashed back on
      the time he gave Laura the locket. On the other hand, when Cooper
      is looking at this page in the diary, the date at the top of the
      page says February 6. Cooper did say to Diane that he had flipped
      back 18 days to "Day One". That could be 18 days from 2/23 (the
      last entry in the diary), yielding the 5th, or from 2/24 (the day
      he was looking at it), yielding the 6th.

12 Feb (Sunday)

   -- Last entry in Laura's diary: "Nervous about meeting J. tonight."
      (After dinner because she remarks about having asparagus for
      dinner again.)

   -- Laura returns home from Bobby's house. (Sarah Palmer tells Truman
      that she last saw Laura when she got home about 9:00. Bobby answers
      yes when Cooper asks him, "She was studying at your house until
      about 9:30. Isn't that right?")

   -- Laura snuck out of her house (James to Cooper).
