Notes from Dad's Diary 1989-1999
Saturday 1989 - Went to Hillsboro with Rev. Ed Johnson to church meeting on Unquenchable Fire.
Sunday 1990 - Took Salisburys and Carolyn Thornburg to UMC meeting at Williamsburg. Good program on conflicts. Had supper at Lake Manor Restaurant, south of Mt. Orab on 68. The bakery had 1# loaf of apple walnut bread for $1.89. Fannie Moore is 93 [probably she is 94, as on 2/3/91 is the celebration of her #95 birthday. Think she was trying to seem younger?]
Monday 1991 - Got a call at 11AM that Mother had been discharged from CMH and they had a room (#204) at Heartland in Hillsboro. What a hassle in getting her "out and in". Regular rates are $77 and for skilled care $105/day.
Thursday 1993 - The Nathan Hales invited us over for supper (lamb), Betty and Jack Liggett were there, on their way back from Illinois to NJ.
Friday 1994 - Went to the Bar Meeting in Wilmington. Jean looked at new floor covering for our kitchen, plus appliances for the kitchen. Also looked at the Ford Taurus. Had supper at Ponderosa. Interesting TV show on Alaska. Kathy Mahanes is having a going out of business sale in Wilmington.
Saturday 1995 - [Denver to home] Spent the AM at the big Tattered Cover Book Store then had a nice lunch at Sorenson's at 315 Detroit St. [no restaurant currently listed at that address, or by that name], before leaving for the [Stapleton] airport [Stapleton operated 1929-1995] which is to be replaced on 2/28/95 by the new DIA, which has had several postponed openings. [From Wikipedia: DIA finally replaced Stapleton on February 28, 1995, 16 months behind schedule and at a cost of $4.8 billion, nearly $2 billion over budget.]
Sunday 1996 - [to Columbus] Ray King was telling me the financial problems of the church. We leave for Columbus to meet John, Julie, and Kate at Cookers I-270 and Main St. near the big Barnes and Noble bookstore.
Wednesday 1998 - [Carlos] Achor appraisal. Woke up this AM with snow on the ground. Lions Club meeting canceled.
