View the President's Schedule

Into L.A. for our few days of seeing friends etc. We left the house at 10:40 A.M. and arrived at the suite at 11:45. Coming down the coast in the helicopter I watched for landmarks I remembered and was a little upset when I could locate them & then couldn’t remember their names—Topanga Canyon for example. After lunch a haircut & manicure—both overdue. Then George Scharfenberger one of the trustees of our blind trust & a lawyer came by—mainly to talk about our wills in view of the change in inheritance taxes. My 1981 tax change eliminated such tax on surviving spouses. Then Mike Abrams to check on how we were doing with his workouts. He was quite pleased with me. Nancy was out on errands most of the rest of the day. I did some homework. One bill having to do with funds for territories had a clause that could make me veto it. But word is out the congress will change that so I’ve agreed to sign with the proviso the Congress will eliminate the clause. A quiet evening.
