HH's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]
Sunday 1989 - [Wendy leaves] MV sang at Church. Wendy was a candle lighter. Jean fixed lamb for dinner. The Hortons came with us to take Wendy to the airport. Visited Sawyer Point, a nice place along the river.
Tuesday 1991 - Went to Cincinnati via Hillsboro, oh the red tape at the Hamilton County Probate Court, had a visit with the Sankers. There is now a bike path between Morrow and Milford. [Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail is a "Rails to Trails" bike trail]
Thursday 1992 - [from SLC to Florida, not sure when/how/where they got to SLC but assume they put the 1200 miles on a rental car. This makes me wish I had all the family postcards in order by date, a project I have not yet started, other than to remove them from location order, anyone want to volunteer to be my assistant?] After a night at the SLC [Salt Lake City?] Hilton and 1200 miles on the car we flew to Orlando and Key West. [See comments for more details.]
Friday 1993 - [Ada OH for School of Missions to home, Ginny arrives] Returned home from O.N.U. MV had left Ginny with Georgialia earlier in the day as she was en route to St. Olaf for a choir get together.
Saturday 1994 - [Ginny visiting]
Sunday 1995 - [Ada OH for School of Missions to Lakeside] Left Ada, via Carey, OH. BIG Catholic center, St. Mary Shrine. The Otterbein group is building a retirement home, just west of Lakeside entrance, $8/day per person to get in [to Lakeside] + $1.50 for the car. The top room at the hotel is $69. We had a snack at the Patio [where Catherine worked during the summer of 1967, and Serena worked 1974]. Visited the Mulders, met them in '72 at Mexico City Lions club convention. They are going to go into the new home.
Tuesday 1996 - Dug up our onions. Went to Wilmington, snack at Taco Bell. Harold Schautz was here to help on the computer.
Thursday 1998 - We went to New Carlisle for [Donald] Trop [NVHS 1940] lock box opening, then on to Springfield to file the will. Visit to the Springfield library and had late lunch at Youngs, 1 dip $1.40. Really pretty busy. Jean didn't seem herself when leaving there – no pep and very sleepy, didn't even want to get out of the car at Aldi's and went to bed when we got home. Heard that Rob Rider [son of former pastor?] had a heart attack and passed away at 44. [MV added in 2010: Mother's symptoms are classic for glucose intolerance (aka diabetes and sugar overload).]
Friday 1999 - [to Ada OH for School of Missions] Left for weekend School of Missions. In room #8, Roberts Hall. Studies about aging and the Bible.
