Notes from Dad's Diary 1989-1999
Saturday 1989 - Jean went to last pre-Emmaus meeting and I went to the library. Had lunch at Ponderosa and I rode bike home. Dug a row of soil in the garden for peas, planted oak tree by Ron Smallys lot. Got more literature about the Wandering Wheels trip.
Sunday 1990 - [Peoria IL to home] Went to 8:30 service at 1st UMC, then to brunch at Wildlife Prairie Park for $8.25 each, they have cabins for $75/night, caboose for $60. Visited Alpha Park Library. Drove virtually straight home, were not hungry. Pontiac did fine. Also Sid King's birthday, 2 of his daughters surprised him. [Roberta, was that the time we went to Ralph's Pizza?]
Monday 1991 - [Roberta visiting]
Tuesday 1992 - Busy day at the office, Mother in good spirits. Watched Merrill Lynch video on equity investments.
Thursday 1993 - Clinton's nominee for Attorney General, Zoe Baird, withdrawn after it was found she had hired illegal immigrants.
Sunday 1996 - [Columbus to home] Went to NW UMC, just south of Henderson on Riverside Dr., where John Hickman [?] is pastor, his 2nd year. Church is 3 years old. Ate at Wein....[Weir....?] on Fray [?] Ave., great senior selections for $8.95. [Thought this might be Wienerschnitzel, but $8.95 for hot dogs seems high]. Looked at Concord UMC (2517 London Groveport Road, Grove City -- must be a small church, one of 3 in the Grove City area, this one has no internet presence) where Ray King was pastor. Had a call that Mugs has gone into Heartland.
Tuesday 1997 - Hearing aids came from Price Club, $805 for two of them.
Wednesday 1998 - [Hawaii!] Up at 6:30 to get 7am shuttle for 8:50 flight to Dallas-FW, then change for flight to Honolulu. Ate part of breakfast we brought with us. Got 4:30 flight to Kona and drove to Merryman's Bed and Breakfast, Perry and Don hosts [now Areca Palms Estate B&B], big room for $115, 2 miles south of airport but hard to find. Got there at 6:30 just dark, 5 hour time change from Ohio.
