Dad's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]

Saturday 1989 - A really sunny day but in the 20s.  About an extra hour of sunshine in the evening now.  Mary Virginia home to get dress, she is to be a maid-of-honor at wedding.  Mary [MUH] called.  Mother wanted us to check on Joan and Elaine.

Sunday 1990 - [NYC] Went to Episcopal [St. George's is very close?] first.  Wow!  and then to silent Friends meeting.  Went to Museum of City of New York -- interesting at 104th and 5th Ave.  Rode the bus for half price.  Nice roast beef dinner at Penington House.

Monday 1991 - [NYC] Went to Javits for the [toy] show, had late lunch.

Tuesday 1992 - [Israel with Roberta, MUH]

Thursday 1993 - [Guatemala with Hinshaws]

Friday 1994 - [to Hawaii] Flew to Maui via San Diego and Honolulu.  Had a car/motel deal for $50/night at the Maui Palms in Kahului, which was very adequate.  Car was through Budget.

Saturday 1995 - [NYC to KY] Went to Javits Center, an hour there was enough.  Went to Mumbles for lunch -- very poor.  Took Newark bus from Port Authority Building ($7), got to Cincy about 6:20pm and then drove to Somerset.  Article in yesterday's WSJ aboaut the small seat space in the Boeing 757 plane.

Sunday 1996 -The Wolffroms were at church.  Went to CMH program, still $2.50 each for dinner and the program was on prostate problems.  Then to Extended Care and Sabina to see Evelyn Bernard -- she has failed -- keeps phone off the hook, and Louise Bloom [?].

Tuesday 1997 - [South Africa]

Wednesday 1998 - We went to Wilmington, had tests to determine if our arteries were clogged, etc.  Each of the three [tests] are $35 or all three for $95.  Problems with Jim Miller trust.  Real Estate closing at 5:15 ran to 7pm. To Martinsville [for evening church], story of David and Goliath, we have to stretch if we are to be successful, a limp rubber band is worthless.  Had lunch at [Nancy's] Little Giant.
