Thursday 1989 - Delta has added a non-stop flight to Frankfurt as well as London. Picked strawberries, the first peas, also first cherries at Mother's. Johnsons returned from Lakeside (and their new motor home). Planted squash in garden. Went to Columbus, had no luck in finding "dead beat". Met John for supper, he brought Steve and Mark with him. Bought G'ma a floor lamp for her bedside.

Donald and Martha Ann Bernard's 50th wedding anniversary. BBQ at their house from 4-6, beautiful setting in their yard. Even had the clothes they were married in. Went on sightseeing tour with the Hortons including driving into new part of Snow Hill.
Tuesday 1993 - Article in WNJ about Bob Evans Restaurant coming to Wilmington, also in WCH, will seat about 60 people.

Tuesday 1999 - Serena arrived about noon. Oh what a truck full and her car was also packed. Really filled up the front part of our garage. Glad she had bought that "Dollie". Tim B..... stopped by and helped, especially with the washer and dryer.
