January 5 – Saturday
Still the same indefinite cloudy weather – stagnant –
a.m. – preparing the library for shelves along the east wall –
Shortly before noon Dr. Riwchun called and said he and Mrs. R. would like to come out in the afternoon if agreeable with us.
About noon Hank in to adjust the TV.
Riwchuns arrived about 2:00 – I had little to show them – they liked the winter backyard scenes –
I urged them to try & visit the Rehn Gallery – Mrs. R. said she expected to go to N.Y. about the 19th of January –
Evening music – the Christmas portion of the Messiah – then concertos by Vivaldi.
