Nov. 22, 1989-99 Thanksgiving begins

Dad's Diary 1988-1999 [lightly edited]

Thursday 1990 - [Thanksgiving] A damp AM, did clean the curb and cutters at GHU's.  Did not bring GHU up.  Most of the family left by 3.  MV and Don were going to Macon, GA on 11/23 for a wedding.  Serena bought oysters for dressing and MV had applesauce cake.  John and Julie are still undecided on their plans.

Friday 1991 - [Mo-Ranch, Humble to Austin TX] End of ElderHostel at Mo-Ranch.  We took Earle Foster to Austin where we had reservation at Hilton for $45.  Visited LBJ family farm en route.

Sunday 1992 - Dinner at church, then Serena came to help on the computer.  She makes it look so easy.  They called about GHU about her temperature though she seemed very normal in the evening.  Barnabus group at NV Church of Christ, our Bell Choir sang and also Church Choir.  Waxed the Honda, it turned 67,000 [miles].

Tuesday 1994 - [Ginny visiting] MV and Don arrived.  Ginny is getting some toilet training.  She doesn't like sitting in the booster chair.

Wednesday 1995 - [Orlando Florida] Left for Epcot on the bus at 8am.  WE pretty well covered the place in the next 13 hours.  Had a light lunch in a food court and then had dinner at the Morocco place, $19.95 each with belly dancer, etc.  We rode the boat over and then walked the rest of the way back.  France and Canada have great pictures, felt like our seats were tilted at times and then we zoomed in.  It got cold in the evening.  Jean had a time with her clothes.

Friday 1996 - [Trip to Australia and New Zealand through 11/22 ends]

Saturday 1997 - Went to Hillsboro in PM to look at love seats, a long conversation with Mrs. Holthouse [?].  Got 5 for 5 at Arby's which we ate at home.  Cleaned up the rest of the leaves.

Sunday 1998 - [Death Valley] Forgot that my watch is on AZ time so we got to Visitor Center at 8am rather than 9.  Plenty of material to read there.  They have perpetual bulletins (no date) - topic WWGD, What would God do?  Picture of boy with one piece of cake, would God multiply it into many pieces?  Walked around outdoor museum and to the pool.  Talked to fellow (his wife didn't join in) who was in the pool as their home is a Motor Home (a Continental) and they pull a convertible jeep behind.  Went to Furnace Creek Inn for their Buffet, they really had some rare roast beef, $17.95 each.  Went South past Golden Canyon and made Artist's Drive loop.  The sun is behind the mountain at 4pm.  We walked over to the evening program, a "dark experience."
