HH's Diary 1989-1999
Tuesday 1989 - Jean got me a small heart box of candy, took it to Wells. Jean had UMW at the parsonage. I can struggle through playing "Happy Birthday" on the piano.
Wednesday 1990 - Jean had Dr. appt at 8:15, then on to Dayton to get wheel chair lift in new van. Hard rain. Dropped the van off at the Body Shop then had lunch at Ponderosa.
Thursday 1991 - [to NYC] Took Hortons to airport, they got on standby on next flight to WPB and we flew to NYC, staying at Penington Friends House @$90/night
Sunday 1993 - [NYC back to Ohio] Went to John St. UMC, oldest congregation in U.S., then to South Street Seaport where Jean got some marked down Christmas earrings. Left on Delta from LaGuardia.
Monday 1994 - The [GG and Bob] Walkers went with us to Wilmington, Mystery Night, $25 each, which Judy Gano spearheaded. They had a buffet dinner at the municipal building, then part of a trial in the C.P. Court Room, then about 20 stores where clues were buried. Finished with dessert back at the M building. Nice day for a change.
Tuesday 1995 - We went for our physicals. My weight is 152 pounds, down 7# in 10 years. Went to CMH for x-rays, net cost was $24 for each of us. Had lunch at Ponderosa. Jean took Joanne Gruber to Emmaus meeting.
Wednesday 1996 - Lincoln Day Dinner at Roberts Arena. Ohio Treasurer Ken Blackwell* spoke, mostly on the flat tax idea. NV had a table, $15 each. In Newark it's $30 each. [*Blackwell served as Mayor of Cincinnati 1979-80, Ohio Treasurer 1984-1988, Ohio Secretary of State 1999-07 and ran for Governor in 2006 but was defeated by Ted Strickland.]
Friday 1997 - [South Africa]
Saturday 1998 - Sankers had us and five other couples down for an evening (travel things like picture of Leaning Tower of Pisa, etc. all around). After dinner a quartet called the Dixie Kings showed up. One couple from Vandalia 45377, Robert and Barbara Walker have had a house at Chautauqua for 23 years. Others included the Bradshaws, a German couple, and the Fryes who had taken the Palace on Wheels in India. Looks like Meyers [?] is about to open. Gas = 91.9¢/gallon.
