Dad's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]
Friday 1989 - GG out with the flu -- her sister, Anna Louise also does a good job.
Saturday 1990 -[NYC] Went to Javits Toy and Variety Show, really a waste of time. No Saturday PM meal at Penington House so we ate at Japanese Restaurant at 1st Ave. and 16th St. with chopsticks.
Sunday 1991 - [NYC] Went to UMC on 62nd St. [Lexington UMC may now be called Metropolitan Koryo UMC, a Korean UMC], met 90-year-old Irene Ayres who volunteers at Mission on 3rd Ave and 14th a couple times a week. We went there and found quite a turn out of men. They give them a bag of food at the end. Met Florence ? [looks like Itoh?] for lunch at the Dorset, buffet was $25.
Monday 1992 - [NYC to Israel] Went to Ellis Island, surprised at the crowd. Our plane for Israel left at 10:15PM. The Baileys were there, Mary (MUH), and seven from Phoenix that Roberta got. Fare on ticket to Israel was $866.
Wednesday 1993 - [Guatemala with Hinshaws]
Friday 1995 - [NYC] Bruce showed up at 7:30. He is staying in the City for the show, their daughter just turned 2. Met Jean at 1PM at Bailey's, walked from 23rd St. & 5th Ave. to City Hall, that was quite an experience and the $35 seemed modest for our two hours there. We came back to Madison and 36th for a quick trip to the Morgan Library. In the evening we went to the Strand Bookstore where Jean bought a book for $1, by Billy Graham's daughter that had originally retailed for $24.95.
Saturday 1996 - Article in the WNJ that the Wilmington P.O. is looking for a new location, present location built in 1929. Also the proposed 73 Bypass is #9 in the state. Jean went to Columbus to UMW meeting. Prayer meeting at church this AM, Keith substituted for Greg Linkhart.
Monday 1997 - [South Africa]
Wednesday 1999 - Had hearing regarding Charles Day Estate. Wind up on Leach estate. Bob Ballantyne called re family reunion in May in New Hampshire. Had eye appt., still 20/20 so no change in glasses.
