November 24, 1989-99

Gladys Hiestand Uible (1892-1993)

Dad's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]

Friday 1989 - [Kentucky to home] MV had weight watchers items for our lunch.  I visited the new Lexington Public Library in the AM.  We left about 3pm, had supper at Bob Evans near Eastgate, gas 92.9¢. GHU needs help in going to the bathroom, she hears so well sometimes.  So many people already have up Christmas decorations.

Saturday 1990 - I felt lousy, dizzy and chills.  Jean helped take the bells to the Bank for playing.  The "Business Group" having dinner and dance at school house for $10 a person.

Sunday 1991 - [Santa Fe NM] Joe's choir group sang at the Unitarian Church in Albuquerque, the speaker on whether the test showed we were introvert or extrovert.  Earlier we drove out to where the balloons were landing and were invited to an instruction program.  The fellow was "primed" in an unusual plane.  Had lunch at Maria Teresa's in Old Town.  Joe's gallery there is really off the main tourist circuit.  Ice cream for supper, Haagen-Dazs and Ben and Jerry's (much nicer) though each was $1.75 a dip.  Joe needs some new chairs.

Tuesday 1992 - We went to Wilmington, had 3 appointments there, item in Sunday's NYT on Guatemala.  Ate at Donatos, new pizza place, where Hardees used to be.  Had about finished eating when Wayne Gary Page came over and we talked to him for about an hour, mostly about him and his two sons bike trip in Europe this past summer.

Wednesday 1993 - Heartland called us about 7am about GHU's condition.  Went over there, they had put her on oxygen and her color was better.  I went back about 5pm.  She wasn't breathing as hard, just resting peacefully.  She passed away about 7:15pm.  Sadie had been there all day.  [See below for timeline.]

Thursday 1994 - [Thanksgiving] Great Thanksgiving dinner thanks to MV and Julie.  Sunny day.  John and Julie tried a little tennis, cold wind.

Friday 1995 - [Orlando to Lake Worth Florida]  Had lunch in Vero Beach at Ocean Grill, called John Hardt, he retired there in 1983.  Went to Rob and Cindy's for recycled Thanksgiving dinner, beautiful pool.

Sunday 1996 - Adrian Roberts had speaking trouble at start of Sunday School.  MUH buys new suitcases. Rev. Moses, Keith got him, spoke at our evening service.

Monday 1997 - Bob and GG go to Las Vegas for 5 days.

Tuesday 1998 - [Laughlin NV to Phoenix] Good buffet breakfast at hotel, $3.98 each. OJ being made. Pit stop at Lake Havasu, drove around London Bridge and then walked out part way.  Saw a lot of RV parks.  75mph speed limit on I-10.  Close call coming out of Cracker Barrel.  Got to Kings about 5pm.  Met Wendy and Liz at Soup and Salad at Metrocenter.  They are looking at a new apartment.  Went to Fry's and got groceries.

Wednesday 1999 - Crowsons arrived about 5pm, had ham dinner.
