Feb. 26, 1989-99 Kate says NO

Dad's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]

Sunday 1989 - Lunch at Ponderosa, went to [Wilmington] College Library, then Emmaus community meeting.  Had light skiff of snow last night.  We have a time getting the up and down temperature changes on our thermostat.  State Senator Dave Hobson was a pilgrim on the walk.

Monday 1990 - [Florida]  Donna Sears died [at age] (63), married Bob in 1945.

Tuesday 1991 - [Texas to Ohio]  Visited Alamo again after breakfast at the Hotel and the King William district.  Flight left at 1PM and we were in Cincinnati at 6PM

Wednesday 1992 - [Israel to NYC]  Hotel wake up call at 2:30 and we left for airport at 3:30.  What a long day with plane to Athens (2 hours), then a 3 hour wait to board big plane to NYC for 10 hour flight.  R[oberta] had reservations at Best Western on 45th St, $75 for the 3 of us.

Friday 1993 - [Guatemala]

Saturday 1994 - [Kauai, Hawaii]

Sunday 1995 - Ed Johnson spoke of communication, the story of the polar bear and the pallbearer.  He didn't want to sit on the ice and eat fish.  John, Julie and Kate came about 1:30 for dinner and stayed until 6:30.  We walked down to Wells and saw the new rooms.  Still hard for me to believe that the total cost was 10M [thousand].  Kate can say "No" and also said "bye" when leaving.  John said they hope to take a group to Mexico City in September for mission repair work.  Had evening meeting at church.

Monday 1996 - [referring to Sunday 2/25/96]  Social hour after church.  We met the Goodings at 1pm at Der Dutchman in Waynesville.  Meals still $6.95, had 30 minute wait, then talked until 4pm.  Bev had just had an operation and they are signed up for an E.O. [ElderHostel?] trip to Genteel England this August, going with Lisa's pastor at the big church in Dayton.  Jim as moved across the street to a 5-story house.

Wednesday 1997 - [London]  Visited the British Museum

Friday 1999 - [to Kentucky]  Left for Somerset as Don was gone and MV and four other women were going to B...... TN for a weekend.

EO is probably Educational Opportunities, group that does tours often led by pastors or lay people.
