Notes from Dad's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]
Monday 1989 - Rev. Ed Johnson told us tonight that he planned to retire this next June. He will be 65 in January. Took GHU out to Joan Gruber for hair ($6). Grocery in Lees Creek closed. Connie West starts working at the Bank.
Tuesday 1990 - First snow very light, but cold wind. Mothers Club at Virginia Walkers in Hillsboro.
Wednesday 1991 - NV Lions met at NV Senior Citizens, $16 per couple. NVUMC bell ringers were the program.
Friday 1992 - Mother is very good today, weight up to 99#, trying to get Christmas letter off on computer.
Saturday 1993 - [Logan Ohio to home, Ginny visiting] What a long night with Ginny, she had a temperature and was VERY restless. The room was $65, but John had it as a prize through a friend. She mentioned that the breakfast was continental +. A large nut roll, quiche, juice and beverages. They have just opened this fall and have done much of the work themselves. Their son is a pilot with Airborne and drives back and forth. Had lunch at Bob Evans in WCH and got back to NV as we were on clean-up committee for the UMC bazaar.
Sunday 1994 - Meeting Sankers at 1pm for Tour of Homes. We had lunch at Boston Chicken en route there. Mary and Roger Bahr have a Japanese girl living with them. A light sprinkle but in the 50s.
Monday 1995 - Good to be back in routine [after return from Florida trip], plenty of legal work.
Wednesday 1996 - Lions club at Wooden Spoon, $8 each, 25 there. We took the Salisburys with us. Had sheet of 25 illustrations and then guess the Christmas song. Hard to believe that I went all day without glasses, my old glasses do make things cloudy.
Thursday 1997 - GG and Annie to tax school.
Saturday 1999 - Auction of the old NV School, Christian School bought if for $130,000. [Christian School operated there for ~5 years?] They finished laying up the block foundation for the new habitat house. Got new Zagat book for NYC.
