We were at the American Academy of Arts and Letters last night (see last bunch of entries), and Catherine's (Murphy) phone kept ringing. She answered it once and none was there. It turned out to be Benjamin Busch. He was calling to see if this was a good night to come by on his way from New York City to Sherborn NY. After dinner at the Academy, when Cathy and I were driving home, he finally got through to us. So, we arranged for him to let himself in when he got here, and that we'd see him in the morning. He probably got to our house around 1 AM. In the morning, when I got up at 7, I tried not to wake him, but that didn't work. The three of us had breakfast and visited. A little after 10, Charlie (Smith) came to work and took Cathy directly to the doctor for her B12 shot. Charlie and Cathy got back around 12 and the four of us had lunch. When we were done with lunch, Simon (Tosky) came to work (see next 2 entries). After Ben saw what I was up to in the studio and what Cathy had done, he left to head north.
