Made my call yesterday to P.M. Thatcher. Fri. late afternoon we had a near cloud burst at Camp D. but it only lasted a matter of min’s.
Sat. dawned clear & after my radio broadcast we went poolside. No swimming for me but I walked in circles in chest deep water—Dr.’s orders.
Sunday A.M. called P.M. Nakasone of Japan. He is sending an emissary (very hush hush) to Iran to put the squeeze on for return of our 7 kidnap visitors in Lebanon. Japan has considerable clout with Iran because of trade. I thanked him & told him how important it was to us. The day was beautiful—more pool walking. Then back to the W.H. for a meeting with Mike D. & Stu Spencer. Both were advising me that I must grab hold & push the budget plan through before Congress breaks for the Aug. recess. There’s nothing I’d rather do & I intend to try but it’s no easy task. The Demos. are a major part of the problem but our Repub. Sens. are a good part of it also.
