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%.]
