Friday 1992 - [to Columbus/Newark, Roberta arrives] Had Probate Meeting at Holiday Inn in Worthington, HI is 7 years old, cost $125. John was there. Julie met Roberta at the airport and Jean met us and drove to Vanco Restaurant, a Greek place. [Can't find any Greek restaurants listed on Broad Street or beginning with "V", there is a Yannis Greek Restaurant on Cleveland Ave.] Reasonable enough but Julie had a fly in her second bite. [That's an appetite killer, maybe that's why they're no longer in business.] John and Julie had been to the Inn at Honey Run near Millersburg. We watched the video from the 50th anniversary without sound.
Saturday 1993 - [Newark to home] Left Newark about 9am after getting gas at 87.9¢. At Worthington at 10 about meeting on Cuba trip, saw slides of previous trip. Had lunch at Worthington Inn, an upscale place, then ice cream at Graeters across the street, 1 dip $1.25. Visited the Worthington library, saw the Wexler Art Museum from the article and the new Columbus convention center. Made a stop at both of the new outlet centers on I-71. Bought some pine shoe trees. To Hillsboro to see Mother, she ate all the ice cream in the cup.
Sunday 1994 - Had a brief PPR meeting at church, all seem to want Ed to come back for another year. We ate at Frontier Steakhouse at North Beach, a few in the water. Went to Heartland to see Henry Edwards. Auto Zone store on N. High now open.

We stayed until they dimmed the lights at 10pm.
Friday 1998 - Starr report on Clinton released, that has about taken over the news. Grace Fite brought us some grapes. Noticed 'rough" spot on my seat. Went down to Wells and made some "free" phone calls. The Zooks have a daughter in Columbus OH, Kingsport TN, and Taos NM. Called MUH, she had been out on a one day boat cruise, she lost $10 on the boat. She does not enjoy "boating."
