May Brenner on Keeping Track of Sydney’s Schedule
  May Brenner     Biography    
Recorded: 14 Jun 2005

There at the side of you he has written, not times, but days and continents and sometimes names of cities where he will be and without that, no, I’d have no idea. And when people say, where is he? I say, wait a moment and I go over there; and its all written up you can see it. I’m keeping it now. I’m keeping it as sort of a memento because sometimes he doesn’t believe how he flits about. So now I’m keeping it. Since I was ill in December, I think. No, I’ve just kept it for fun. And the days are very, very different. But I try when he’s here and hasn’t made a lot of appointments that we just do things quite spontaneously. We don’t make schedules, we don’t make time, we just let things happen. That’s hard to do but I had two men here before you came fixing the auger cooker.
