Jan. 21, 1989-99 to Hawaii

Notes from Dad's Diary 1989-1999

Saturday 1989 - Jean went to last pre-Emmaus meeting and I went to the library.  Had lunch at Ponderosa and I rode bike home.  Dug a row of soil in the garden for peas, planted oak tree by Ron Smallys lot.  Got more literature about the Wandering Wheels trip.

Sunday 1990 - [Peoria IL] Went to 8:30 service at 1st UMC, then to brunch at Wildlife Prairie Park for $8.25 each.  Visited Alpha Park Library.  Drove virtually straight home, were not hungry.  Pontiac did fine.  Also Sid King's birthday, 2 of his daughters surprised him. [Roberta, was that the time we went to Ralph's Pizza?]

Tuesday 1992 - Busy day at the office, Mother in good spirits

Thursday 1993 - Clinton's nominee for Attorney General, Zoe Baird, withdrawn after it was found she had hired illegal immigrants.

Sunday 1996 - [California from Phoenix] Went to NW UMC, just south of Henderson on Riverside Dr., where John Hickman [?] is pastor, his 2nd year.  Church is 3 years old.  Ate at Weir....[?] on Fray Ave., great senior selections for $8.95.  [Thought this might be Wienerschnitzel, but $8.95 for hot dogs seems high].  Looked at Concord UMC where Ray [Roy?] King was pastor.  Had a call that Mugs has gone into Heartland.

Tuesday 1997 - Hearing aids came from Price Club, $805 for  two of them.

Wednesday 1998 - [Hawaii!] Up early to fly to Dallas-FW, then change for flight to Honolulu.  Ate part of breakfast we brought with us.  Got 4:30 flight to Kona and drove to B&B, big room for $115, 2 miles south of airport but hard to find.  Got there at 6:30 just dark, 5 hour time change from Ohio.
