Perhaps I'm misunderstanding your situation, but it sounds like you should
just create a second table for your running notes. This table would contain a
TEXT field for the note data, a TIMESTAMPTZ field for the timestamp, and
a field or set of fields to match the primary key of your mostly static client
table, to link each note with a particular client.
