Feb. 16, 1989-99 Toy Shows continue

Dad's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]

Thursday 1989 - Our first square dance in a month -- nice Valentine theme.

Friday 1990 - [NYC] At the toy show, lunch with Bruce.

Saturday 1991 - [NYC] Went to Barneys, WOW the prices.  Had lunch at China Square Restaurant, good.  Visited Holography Museum [which closed in 1992, so good choice visiting in '91] and then saw movie "Iron and Silk" in Chinese.

Tuesday 1993 - [to Guatemala]  See notes [referring to travel journal I assume]

Thursday 1995 - [NYC]  Jean met Louise Robinson at the Hilton.  She had come up for the day from Washington DC and they went to the Metropolitan Art Museum.  I met Duke for lunch, ate at the Barnes and Noble bookstore on 6th & 22nd.  They are getting ready to open one on Union Square.

Friday 1996 - Russ Powell passed away at 84.  He retired 23 years ago. 

Sunday 1997 - [South Africa]

Monday 1998 - Shawnee UMC is at Exit 120 on I-75 [Lima, church of Rev. Bishman, mentioned yesterday].  Message tonight on "what we have", not on "what we don't have" about the disciples worrying about only having a loaf of bread.  Jean met friend at Chinese Restaurant in Hillsboro for lunch.  Her "H" [?] is cutting circles out of plywood "when you get around to it."

Tuesday 1999 - Plenty of work at office.  Jean had UMW at Joann Gruber's.  Serena goes to Newark.

1998---my guess is "H"=husband and that was when "roundtoits" were popular, the small circles of wood people would pass out as attention getters to get "around to it" and get something completed.
