Phone message from Dr. "M." and the farmer, both of whom were at Friday night's organizational meeting of the Ivan Bonar Appreciation Society. They reminded me of a little detail of our Friday night conversation. The farmer was talking about some documentary makers who had come to take pictures of him on his farm. "Did they make you take your shirt off?" I quipped, little realizing how soon my thoughtless quip would come back to haunt me. "I'd rather have my picture made with my pants off than my shirt off," the farmer replied. Now I understand!
