We had a meeting this morning at 10. I just did get up in time to make it. I’m getting so lazy. All I do & wanna do is sleep. I won’t be worth a darn when I get back home. Guess Bena can make us both a living.

Robertson & I had a big talk about our Sarasota days this morning.

Tonight we went to town. More or less got Erickson acquainted with the town. It didn’t suit his taste anymore than it does mine.
