Saturday 1993 - [Ginny visiting] First sign of green beans in the garden.

Sunday 1994 - [Leadville Colorado with Aunt Mary] Took train ride out of Leadville, where the Arkansas River starts.  Visited the Tabor Opera House, quite an interesting [tour guide], she is 81 and got her Mother to buy the place for her inheritance.  We invited her out to dinner, to a Chinese Restaurant and then she showed us her house, just north of the Chamber of Commerce, quite ornate, many colors and with a Maytag name in the front window.

Thursday 1997 - [Roberta and Sid visiting]

Saturday 1999 - [Indianapolis to Urbana IL to St. Louis, with Serena] Serena left early for a swim and to get goggles.  We had OJ and muffins at Mrs. Fields in the Mall.  On to Urbana where we met the Blairs, [Jean went to library school and/or worked with her] he is quite hard of hearing.  Took them to Silvercreek for lunch, very nice.  He took us on a tour of U.I. campus and she prepared orange sherbet and cookies for us.  Had reservations at Hampton Inn at 22nd and Market [St. Louis], Suite 103, plenty of signs about taking all things out of the car.  Ordered a pizza and ended up getting 2.
