Thanks for booking time with me by phone; it’s my privilege that you chose to do so.  I am very active in a variety of activities, currently, including intensive research that draws on my time, occasionally, at odd and awkward times.

If we have had a phone call booked and I am unable to attend, i.e., if you, unfortunately, get my vMail, for instance,  please do accept my apology.  I will do my utmost to get back with you directly and would very much welcome you to try me back.
