Feb. 23, 1989-99 Eyes, ears and 9.2% CD

Dad's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]

Thursday 1989 - Had hearing aid test in Wilmington, both OK.  We both have had our eyes checked and Jean got new glasses.  Exam was $30 and the glasses $170.  Met Jean Liggett at the WPL and we ended up going to the Chinese place for supper with them.  Got new bike gloves for $24.95.  Got BIG check on sale of RJR stock.  Put it in 3 month CD at 9.2%, 6 months was 9.4%.  [Those numbers sound great compared to today's paltry CD rates.   Our credit union best rate on 6 month CD's is currently 0.35%.]

Friday 1990 - [Georgia to Florida]  Called Helen Kuntzman, then church was having a Missionary Night and potluck supper of foods from countries where the missions go.  Enrights were among guest speakers, a nice treat.  Aldersgate UMC in Seminole Florida.

Saturday 1991 - [Texas]  Drove to South Padre Island, lots of traffic on the beach.  Had lunch at Sea Ranch Restaurant, $3.99 special.  Sat with Carol and Don Stout from Worthington. 

Sunday 1992 - [Israel]

Tuesday 1993 - [Guatemala]

Wednesday 1994 - [Kauai, Hawaii]

Thursday 1995 - Went square dancing.  Ed and Dorothy Bailey there.  Leadership Clinton meeting.  Joni [?] Streber [Stuber?] quitting Ferns and staring work with Morris B.... in Yellow Springs

Sunday 1997 - [South Africa]

Monday 1998 - [Kentucky to North Carolina]  Left Somerset after taking Ginny to school and Christian to babysitter.  Had lunch at Regas Restaurant in Knoxville.  Still good.  On to Asheville where we had a reservation at Grove Park Inn.  Room 6035, (200 steps from lobby) past the room where George Bush spent a night.  Serena had made reservations for dinner at Richmond Hill, 3 of us was $115, then Jean was sick.  Called the Zooks -- Mary's younger sister in Missouri had passed away so they were going there.

Yes, it's Streber, as in Streber's Market in New Vienna. Same family.
