Diary Entry - 11/15/1981

Sunday, November 15, 1981

Nancy left for Calif. to get “Scopus Award.” I was in meetings until early afternoon & then off to Houston Texas for Repub. fund raiser. It was honoring Jim Baker and all the Texans now in our admin.—(quite a few of them). A big affair—Gov. Clemens, John Connally several Congressmen (wives for all just named), Eddie & Fran Chiles—he was dinner chairman. Billy Graham dropped in to do a benediction. It was a warm and friendly affair. The next morning off to San Antonio, then by chopper to ranch for our 2 days of Turkey hunting. The ranch house is small—really evidently just a cabin for this sort of thing. Hunting Turkeys provides some good nap time. You sit in a blind—in our case 3 hrs. each day. The 1st day Turkeys finally came in but they were all hens so no shooting. The second day—3 hours and then had to get ready for home but saw no Turkeys at all. Came home in the 747 Doomsday plane. Was briefed on its capabilities. It’s like being in a submarine—no windows.
