Jan. 24, 1989-99 John thinking of leaving Bank, Hortons arrive

Notes from Dad's Diary 1989-1999

Tuesday 1989 - Ed Johnson, our pastor, along with HQT, AW Hause, Leon S, picked me up in Wilmington to go to Hara Arena in Dayton for the Unquenchable Fire meeting, really to raise some 18 million for church expansion.  Stopped at Kroger's and bought pineapple at reduced price of 99 cents.

Wednesday 1990 - Jean and I went to Sabina and [something about vans.]  Called John who is thinking of leaving the Bank, also Serena who seems to be getting along fine.

Thursday 1991 - Went to Cincy.  Saw G....[?] C....[?] [looks like Gelacti Corril], Jean bought coffe pot at Swallen's, then met Duke [?] at the Conservatory [?] Restaurant.  Then to airport to get Hortons, to Totes to get overshoes.  Sadie started staying with Mother today who seemed much better.  Calling hours for Ina Current. 

Friday 1992 - Met at John Hughes re joint Elderhostel program on 3/18 before the retired teachers.  Surprised to see our neighbor blowing the snow off our sidewalk this AM.  Mother in good spirits.

Friday 1992 - [2nd entry with same date, and if it was 1/24/93 would have been Sunday] GHU complaining of aches and pains.  Had fire in fireplace, cut back the big plant from Zooks in the dining room.  Went to Dayton to file Edna Campbells will and had supper at Damon's in Wilmington, just opened as of Tuesday.  Long wait for food.  Cup of soup $2.25, spinach dip $4.95.

Saturday 1998 - [Hawaii] Into Hilo, Lyman Museum and House, then ice cream at Old Kress building, built in 1933, closed in 1980.  Drove down to end of 130 then up beach road [132] to Pohoiki, narrow and winding, saw Lava Tree State Monument, interesting tree shapes.  Supper in Pahoa at Italian Restaurant with little business.

Dad can varify but I believe Duke was a jobber for Wells. No idea what the other words are!

From HH: Your press releases, Catherine bring back many memories, not only of our childrens' experiences, but of the varied things that we have done, like 12 years ago in Hawaii. One doesn't forget that drive to Hana on the big island, like the straightist stretch of road was perhaps 200 feet.
