Dad's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]
Friday 1989 - Another nice day. Article in WNJ about old Hale Hospital [where Catherine had her tonsils removed in 1955] becoming the center of a retirement community. Went to a play at Wilmington College in the McCoy Room "Home of the Brave" -- what war scenes. Kroger having 12oz. OJ for 79c
Saturday 1990 - [Ohio to Florida] Carolyn R. takes us to the airport for Delta flight to WPB at 7:03PM, nonstop, last of our 8 tickets, they expire next week.
Sunday 1991 - Went to Dayton, exchanged telephone answering machine at Pharmore. Ate at 7 Ruffles [can't find any restaurant in that area with that name] at Alex Bell Rd and I-675. Then to Xenia Public Library, they are adding an addition.
Monday 1992 - Went to Roland Grice's house, then to Chillicothe to Probate Court, etc. Jean bought stuff at Aluminum [?] Outlet and glasses at Odd Lots. Supper at Hunan House was $14 and brought enough home for another meal. Mother still sleepy and didn't want to eat.
Saturday 1996 - Went to Sankers then we drove to the Window Garden Restaurant [can't find any current info on Window Garden although one site mentions it "came and went" and at 3077 Harrison Ave is now Henke Winery] on the west side of Harrison Ave. Vegetable plate was $8.95 as was the buffet. Then to Krohn Conservatory, pretty orchids. We purchased 2 small pots for $2 each.
Monday 1997 - Jean had Jan Widman [?] talk on her mission trip to Russia at the Twig [I forget what kind of group Twig is -- a hospital auxiliary?] meeting last night. Greg has left Elsie [I think Greg is Elsie's nephew] and gone back to Florida.
