Monday 1993 - Started on new bridge on US 62 on north edge of Hillsboro.
Tuesday 1994 - [Hawaii] Went from Hilo to Kona Village, what a low key swank place at $450/night, meals included, which were way too much -- appetizer, soup, salad, main course and sweets. We were in PT5, interesting to watch the ducks.

Pastor Mike spoke on temptation, Luke 4:1-13. Children's message about using sun glasses to avoid bright sun and temptations so the church can strengthen us. Saw the Ralph Rannells both today and last night [at College play]. Article in NYT about Hong Kong -- liked the Garden View [YWCA] Hotel.
Monday 1999 - [Kentucky to Ohio] We took Ginny to school by 8:25 -- Victory School on Oak Hill Road. Had lunch at 11:30 at the new Applebee's In Milford. Jean had Mother's Club at NV Elementary School. Got tickets from Lyon but have to send back as too soon. [low, long?]
*HH added in 2010: the PERS reference today is Public Employees Retirement System and the amount was my monthly pension. The amount now is some $200. Even better is my insurance coverage. Peaches is covered under STRS - StateTeachers Retirement System. That Kona Village was one of the nicer places that we ever stayed as it should be at that price.
