When talking of how “they” looked as they entered the apt Timmy told me “they were very oddly – and very elegantly – clothed-in-wood.”
Dick took me to the airport at 7:30 – 8:15 flight uneventful + on time. Saw Jane at Hertz Got a capri + drove into town. Called Jill Chandler + Bill Tregoe. Got to Dr. Korchek’s in good time. Nice new hygienist who hurt less (or interested me more). My gums doing okay + they gave me the name + number of another Dentist – a Dr. Marshall to call tomorrow. Went to Mary’s. Had coffee + a bowl of vichysoisse + saw a few of her new knitting projects – great – and then off to the Yarn Mart. I regaled her on the way with letters from Hilary, Cotton, + Anth. She feels that Doug Sherman is Winnie’s over-reaction + is afraid it will be followed by another. On the way back read Debbie’s letter. Played backgammon + did puzzle + had lovely visit. Apt + called Dick + Timmy who sounded as though disaster had struck. Went over – lovely apt. but very messy + Timmy pretty shocking. He does not know where or who he is really + does know that. He’s delusional + we had long weird talks. Pancake House for dinner + then back. His friend Joyce came in + sneaked me a request to call her when I got home. Did + we talked for almost an hour. She told me Timmy has almost $18,000 + she’s afraid a home will get it all. We talked over IRS note.
