Dad's Diary 1988-1999 [lightly edited]
Tuesday 1988 - Took our Honda to Honda East for 3500 mile checkup. Ate lunch at Arby's at the mall. Still practicing on the piano. I'm rough on Kum-ba-ya.
Wednesday 1989 - [Phoenix] Lunch at Carl Jr's in the mall. Visited Heard Museum. All family ate at El Torito, near mall, $104.83. [Metrocenter, closed within the last couple years but has reopened as a Mexican restaurant with an un-rememberable name.]
Thursday 1990 - About 5" of snow fell, Jean has cold.
Friday 1991 -Don, MV and we met Serena at 5:45 at the Golden Lamb, early dinner special until 6:30, but you must ask for it, $7.95, other dinners $12.95 to $17.95, ice cream $1.75. Lock box opening at Leesburg on R. Saunder estate. Another beautiful day.
Sunday 1992 - [to Danville OH vis Newark] Leaving with the Baileys, Everett and Ann, to go to the White Oak Inn in Danville, Ohio. Went to church with John and Julie at Springhill Baptist Church, a mile east of Granville, then lunch at the China Place near their house. On to Roscoe Village, $8 each and a snack at the Warehouse Restaurant, then to White Oak Inn. We were in the Cherry Room, $70/night. Had brochure from Red Roof, their 20th year, rates then were $8.50 for a single.
Monday 1993 - Busy day at the office.
Tuesday 1994 - [Phoenix]
Wednesday 1995 - John, Julie and Kate left about 11:30 as were to meet a friend in Xenia at 12:30. GG called from FL at 5:05, guess to see how we were getting along. Per the paper this Christmas season has been one of the worst for retailers.
Friday 1996 - [Phoenix to Las Vegas] Left with Wendy and Petra [exchange student from Switzerland] for Las Vegas, 297 miles. Room 1273 at the Luxor, we were the farthest point from the 2 elevators. Buffet supper was $8.01. Lunch was Denny's in Kingman. Ugh.

Monday 1999 - [Kentucky to home] Left Somerset, went to Public Library on 5-Mile Road, then to lunch at Bill Knapps, more showers. Stopped in Batavia for Leach O.E.T. [Ohio Estate Tax] and by the time we got home had about 1" of snow. Carolyn R. told me she is not too happy with Wells management.
