HH's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]

Thursday 1989 - Went to Hillsboro, saw Quill [Orville?] Purtee at Oakland Nursing Home.  Brief visit to the Hillsboro Public Library, open 8 to 5.  Visited Harners on way back from ⃞ dancing, got green beans.  So much publicity about Pete Rose and his resignation.  [from Cincinnati Enquirer Pete Rose timeline:  Aug. 24, 1989: Rose agrees to lifetime ban from baseball following a six-month investigation of his gambling, a deal announced by Giamatti. A five-page document signed by Rose and Giamatti has no formal findings. However, Giamatti says he believes Rose bet on baseball, while on the same day Rose denies it.]  Dow Jones Index hits a record high.

Friday 1990 -  To Murphy Theater to see Greta Garbo in "Mata Hari" [1931 World War I spy movie] and "Ninotchka" [1939].  She was a serious comrade (no smiles) but did warm up.  Pic & Save special on Honeydew for 99¢ each.  Don Isaacs 22nd Anniversary.
