June 9, 1984, 89-99 Buzzard's Glory

Dad's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]

Saturday 1984 - Serena called from Flagstaff about car trouble.  [Possibly this is when Serena and Grandma also came to Colfax WA and Serena took Wendy and Grandma on the memorable trip to Lake Louise.]

Friday 1989 - [Mares, Robert and Wes visiting]  Joe Horton arrived en route from NYC to Santa Fe (he moved there 11/87).  Joe likes to play bingo.  Got bike pictures from Wandering Wheels.

Saturday 1990 - [Turkey]

Sunday 1991 - [Wendy visiting] Mother very alert.  About 4:00 we went to Lake Cowan and went sail boating.  $16 for two hours, then a snack at Taco Bell.  Roberta called, had gotten her friend Beverly to Colorado.

Thursday 1994 - We went to Lebanon for Smith closing, then had lunch at Golden Lamb.  Most lunches $7.50, beverages $1.20.  Worked at the Ball Park with Ollie Medlock [?].  Had hot fudge sundae at Mcdonald's, 89¢.

Friday 1995 - Buzzards Glory Days again. 

Sunday 1996 - [ElderHostel program to Czech Republic, Austria and Hungary, returning 6/22]

Tuesday 1998 - [Williamsburg VA] Rooms in The Williamsburg Lodge are $202/night.  After buffet breakfast we took the bus to the Visitors Center, saw the 37 minute movie, visited the [Governor's] Palace and the maze.  Had snack at the Chowning's Tavern, then to the Capitol (really no wait).  Jean and Roberta went shopping.  Sid and MUH to take a nap.

Wednesday 1999 -  Jean and I went down to Wells to get items upstairs for Church yard sale – guess we got carried away as Bob from Processed Plastics came at 10:00 and I was in shorts.  Oh well.  Got e-mail from Don Bernard about a farmer wanting a divorce.  Do you have grounds?  Yes I have 200 acres.  Do you have a case?  No, I have a John Deere.  Jean got the AOL [chat] to working, like a phone chat, only with typing over the internet.
