March 27, 1989-99 Grand Canyon Hike

Notes from Dad's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]

Monday 1989 - Jean took down the storm windows.  Stayed last night with GHU, she does very well and is very alert.

Tuesday 1990 - [Cris Horton family visiting] We all went to Leesburg.  Talked with Cris about coming to Wells.  He wants to start his own machine shop.

Wednesday 1991 - [Roberta visiting]  Went to Hillsboro for breakfast with Mother, very alert, held the cup and drank and ate well.  Back this evening but she never woke up, hard for her to eat or drink anything.  We took Harold and Carolyn Thornburg to Westboro UMC for their revival service.

Saturday 1993 - [Arizona, Grand Canyon] Up at 5AM and after big breakfast we left at 6:30 on the Bright Angel Trail with a sack lunch.  Indian Garden very pretty, but the light rain made it very muddy.  Catherine gave MV one of her pairs of shoes to wear and MV needed encouragement to think positive.  Roberta and John were a big help.  We were all stiff that evening, the rain had turned to snow.

Sunday 1994 - Met the Goodings at Houston Inn Restaurant in Mason on Rt. 42.  Bev had a reaction to something she ate there.   Good value.

Monday 1995 - [Holmes County] Had the complimentary breakfast buffet, then we went for a walk.  Saw the sheep and the ducks, had a tape from the Inn with music for walking.  Had lunch at the Dutch Restaurant in Wilmot.

Thursday 1997 - Jean went to M.D. in Cincinnati, made hospital call on Art Bernard's sister, then we had supper at Damon's.  Jean got a couple items at GMC in Walmart Plaza.  Had choir program tonight.  New Vienna town Clerk -- __________ Mongold.

1993: saying I needed encouragement was a severe understatement. More like I needed a tow truck or a swift kick in the hind quarters or both.
