May 24, 1989-99


Kate chases tennis balls, Don's graduation

HH's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]

Wednesday 1989 - Jean fixed onion soup.  Getting new roof over jump rope area at Wells.  Took GHU to the Doctor, had lunch at CM Hospital.

Thursday 1990 - Serena has job interview in Houston TX.

Sunday 1992 - [to Kentucky] Left after church with Serena to go to near Wilmore for Don's graduation.  We had motel reservation at Harley [Hailey's?], with Entertainment card $39, room @101 and 105.  Had dinner at Griffin Gate, entrees $19-$27 each.  We were there for 2¼ hours.

Wednesday 1995 - Jean and MUH went with E.E. Carey to program at Miami Trace.

Friday 1996 - Rubber mill broke down.  Bruce Gross is unhappy.  GG went to Dr. in Columbus.  The Kings [preacher] got locked out of their house, wonder about their 17-year-old son, they don't want to leave him alone.

Saturday 1997 - We went to Wilmington and got Ruth Shoemaker and had lunch at Walker's Restaurant.  Ruth seemed to enjoy that, then to Public Library, then a tour of new subdivision on 68 North.  In the AM John and Julie got marble top "chest," some glasses and silverware.  Kate does great job chasing tennis balls.  Gas bill 91 CCFS used, $51.14.

Sunday 1998 - More rain.  Had lunch at New Vienna Restaurant, quite busy, entrees $4.95, large servings but very basic.  Then went to Martinsville UMC.  Don and Barb Isaacs and ?? spoke on their personal problems with mental illness.  Did make reservations via Delta's Escape Plans for this coming weekend to Hartford CT ($99) and also made reservation for rental car and three different hotels.  Other plans were Boston $109, Washington $89, Portland $179, Chicago $79, Norfolk $89, Ft. Lauderdale $139, Philadelphia $89 and Phoenix $159.

Monday 1999 - [New Hampshire with Roberta to home] To airport for 9AM flight, had light breakfast en route.  Oh yes, Gayle Long was along [?] with Roberta.  She is very congenial and has condo at Northern and Central.  Her daughter lives in Montana and has a child that has problems.  Parking at Red Parking Lot is $5/day or $30/week.  Stopped to see Homer Thompson.  Rona was not there.  He had just gone to bed.  To Cracker Barrel for early supper, then to Mall at I-71 and US 35, did buy a pair of Levi's for $28.  Also a small umbrella for $9.99.  Called John, they have a notice of a 9-month-old child in Russia.  [Andrew, we've been waiting for you.]

The hotel in Lexington was on US 60East of town...the chain formerly owned by Leona Helmsley, the "Queen of Mean".
and The Couple mentioned with mental illness struggles were the "Isaacs", I believe. They had an apple orchard for awhile between Circle Drive and the Lion's Club for awhile.

Thanks to MV for the above comment. HH also adds: Bruce Gross was our rep in the NYC area, he was a go getter. Of course he, like all salesmen, always wanted lower prices, a better product AND higher commission. As I recall he was with Wells to the end after some fifteen years. [~1984-1999]
