You don't tire me out, Dr. Clark.
Maybe you should be honest with me-- I'm tired of it, then.
I am tired of the recollections. I'm tired of the struggle. I
guess I'm just tired. I'm 61. I'll be 62 this month.
I'm tired -- you know? I want to get this thing on a
solid economic base for my children and grandchildren. And then
I'm going to try to do something that I've never really been able
to do before, and that is, to really sit back or stand back, and
look, and think more clearly than I've been able to think in the
last 20 years. And I'm assuming that I'll have-- you know--time
to do it.
But in the meantime, --
-- of course, when you're talking about “getting this thing
on a solid economic basis”, you're talking about your new firm,
Clark, Phipps, Clark, Harris and Co. (? no name list...)
We have, I think, broken even, within our first year, and
I hope that it will continue to grow, and in another couple of
years, I can turn it over to my son and his sister and-- you know.
I told you in the beginning that I thought that my experience
at lunch was going to color--(and I use the term advisedly, “color”)
the mood and determine, you know, the approach to his interview,
and it has.
