July 15, 1989-99


GHU to SS, Church & Leesburg Lunch


HH's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]

Saturday 1989 - [Wendy visiting] The five of us went to the open house at Ahesty (?) on 68 south of Wilmington, had lunch at Wendy's, Super Bar $3.89.  Tour of Historical Society, the library, Revco had 6 rolls of single-ply toilet paper for 99¢ (regular $1.50) Charmin.  Our new asparagus is looking good.

Sunday 1990 - GHU went to both Sunday School and Church and then to Leesburg for lunch.  She likes those oysters.  The Morgans have been in Colorado for trailer workshop.  [Actually Gerry spent the summer of 1990 working in Fort Collins, when the dealership he'd been working at in AZ closed down.  Later that year he and the former service manager of that dealership formed Best West.]

Monday 1991 - Getting new IBM computer at Wells, about 10% the size of the old NCR computer.

Thursday 1993 - [Ada OH for School of Missions]

Friday 1994 - [Ginny visiting] Dollar Tree called up about bad bubbles.  Put Ginny's tricycle together.  Went to Dr. McMullen, $124 for the two of us, cleaning teeth and I had an x-ray.  Betty Thompson announced her coming retirement in the monthly newsletter from the NV Senior Citizens.

Saturday 1995 - [Ada OH for School of Missions]

Monday 1996 - It was like UMC Day, a letter from MV about our contribution to their piano fund, a letter from the Danville KY UMC about our attendance there and the Somerset UMC weekly newsletter.  Went to Hillsboro to check title for the George Gano's on property in Lynchburg.  Dow Jones down 160 points today.

Wednesday 1998 - Got check from Bill Dailey on sale of WV property, 136A for $60M.  Barry Williams and termite man were here.  Said it came from wood pile next to the garage, which we moved to under the evergreen tree.

HH corrected my entry for 1998 which I have corrected from Bill Bailey to Bill Dailey. He adds that he was glad for the sale of the property as HH & JWBU had been paying all the property taxes despite the property being owned jointly with the Ballantynes and Daileys.
