November 2, 1987-99

Keep laughing

 HH's Diary 1987-1999 [lightly edited]

Monday 1987 - Bought 8 coupons, senior citizen Delta tickets, good for one year, $592.

Friday 1990 - Sankers invited us down to go to their First Friday dinner at Hyde Park UMC.  Program by Jerry Traylor who on crutches "ran" across the US in some 7 months.  Very inspirational, "hardships are all in our mind."  The weather has been great all this week, up in the 70°'s and dry.  Bill Sanker to retire 12/7/90 from GE.

Saturday 1991 - Men's breakfast at Wilmington UMC, Carl Ling spoke, 8 from NV.  Reception on CM Hospital at the Old Rice Furniture Store building, the roast beef sandwich was tough, quite a bash.  Then at the Murphy an evening with Steve Allen, Jr., M.D.  He spoke for 1¼ hours about laughter being the best medicine.  Each of us got three pieces of clothes, used for being silly.  Saw Bill Stephens, they have been at Otterbein for 7 years.  Leon Salisbury had a balloon procedure to open up a blood vessel.

Monday 1992 - [Kentucky to home]  Back from Williamsburg KY.  We made a stop at Corbin to see Col. Sanders original place, had a sample of old motel room (had to go through it to use pay phone and also to women's rest room), was $4 a night in 1955.  Lunch at Chi-Chi, their noon buffet was $4.99.

Thursday 1995 - Picked tomatoes at the parsonage.  Jean having trouble with bladder.

Saturday 1996 -  [Trip to Australia and New Zealand through 11/22]

Sunday 1997 - Pot luck at church for Bible Study group, got to Goodings about 4pm, left about 8:30.  They are having Gary Kersey speak to their Historical Society in which they are quite active.  They had a great meal.

Tuesday 1999 - Election Day.  Had lunch at NV Senior Center, $5, sat across from Don and Martha Ann Bernard.  He recently celebrated his 80th birthday.  They are going to FL this Thursday.  Grant Douglas here.  Went to Martinsville for supper, a cold wet day and last week was so beautiful.  EC school issue lost.  Nick Eveland lost to David Raizk [Dem, who is still mayor in 2011] in Wilmington mayor race, he has been in office for 16 years.  Here in NV, Tim Bentz beat Keith Collins 190 to 150 votes [in 2007 Collins was elected mayor over Ronald Pirman, and in 2011 he is running again]  and new council members are Dick Watters and Dewey Goldsmith.
