Put a call to Timmy in Cannes. Sheila Taylor (the famous “Button”) answered + I must say I felt a strong antipathy. Timmy was out + she treated the call like an imposition. Asked the operator if we could “call back tomorrow at 9 in the morning” (one am our time) Finally said grudgingly that she’d have Timmy call at midnight – (4:00) Waited in the house all day but no call. Burned me up. Accomplished nothing. Knit + read + watched bad TV + did some crossword puzzles. We went to bed early. Dick has had eleven pools so far this month with 3 more this week to dig. That’s really an improvement. Jerry Mandel wrote us a long letter about my moving my securities to his bank + I thoroughly resented it.
