Dad's Diary 1988-1999 [lightly edited]
Wednesday 1989 - [Detroit to home] Rubber Show again. Jean rode the Monorail, we met at Baskin Robbins, 5 oz. yogurt is 99¢. Had lunch at Dutch Pantry in Bowling Green after Bob Evans did not have charbroiled meat. Ate supper at Lofino's, east of Dayton, soup and salad bar for $1.99/lb. Oh yes, also a stop at US Plastic place near Lima. [Listened to] Swindoll tape on death and the church, as long as we have positive thoughts we are alive.
Thursday 1990 - Went to St. Clair College in Dayton for OSBA credit, Malpractice and Substance Abuse. Had lunch at Peasant Stock, 424 E. Stroop [Town and Country Shopping Center]. Mother seemed much better. Went to meeting at Elks by National Bank.
Friday 1991 - Had ice cream at Wells – Boss's Day. Went to Murphy Theater, National Theater of the Deaf "Treasure Island," used strobe lighting, instant flashes. Beautiful day. Probate Court Judge Herman Cartwright announced his retirement, think he still has a drinking problem. He has been Judge 7 years.
Sunday 1992 - [Seattle to Far East Trip with Liggitts]
Monday 1993 - [Roberta visiting] Court hearing on Streber eviction, tenant and mobile home tenant. Mother seemed better tonight, but not really awake. Jean went to a meeting in Butlerville. Hortons leave for funeral for Laura in Amsterdam, OH.
Wednesday 1995 - We went to Wilmington on legal business and met Bill and Mary Pat Dailey at Wilmington Inn at 5:30. They are en route to Springfield IL where she has family. They seemed to enjoy the lake – they have a 36' sail boat – and then we had supper at Spillway Lodge. Came back to NV, saw rubber room in operation and got them back to Wilmington at 10:30. Bill is 58, Blaine 56. Jim Dailey died in 1965.
Sunday 1998 - [Chicago to Auburn with Cris and Angela] We went to Chicago Temple, parked in garage nearby. After the church tour, ate at Italian Village. Empress Theater having open house. Back to Auburn in 3 hours. Stayed at Auburn Inn, Laura waited on us. Wil told us he made the hockey team.
Monday 1999 - [Newark to home, Roberta visiting] Met the 3 Goodings at Restaurant in Waynesville at 5:30. We were there for two hours talking or perhaps I should say listening. Goodings are going on a 7-day trip to Munich and Austria for $1798 each in December. They have made plans for New Year's Eve to got to Shakertown KY with two other couples. Bob said he weighs 220. Still a Harley-Davidson fan and still rides.
