Saturday 1991 - [Wendy visiting] We met John and Julie at Deer Creek for supper, nice get together. Julie plans to move her things back from Chicago this next Saturday. Double room, $82 + 12.5% tax. John gave me a tape – Adolph Coors IV: My Father's Son. "Life does not shout, it just runs out, sooner than we think." Strawberries over, cherries here now and raspberries soon.
Wednesday 1994 - [Morehead (after Don's Ordination) to Georgetown KY to home] MV also brought breakfast. Visited Library in Georgetown, nice new addition, then a short visit with Chester and Polly Greene, he is a runner – 1 mile in 8 minutes. We had lunch at the restaurant near the Golf Course, nothing extra. At A&M picked strawberries, 70¢/lb if you pick them, $1 if they pick, so make about $4/hour in picking. The Greenes are going to Australia next month and to England in November.
