    Nov. 26, 1989-99 MV & Don announce engagement

     HH's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]

    Sunday 1989 - MV called us.  Don asked for our blessing about their getting married next Aug. 25, in Wilmore.  He seems to be a nice person.

    Monday 1990 - In Wilmington for Bill Bowers (GG's brother-in-law) appraisal, supper at CMH, then grocery shopping.  Going through Gertrude Clark's things I found news clipping as follows: [Clipping attached: 142,700 PER CENT . . . Investing in Florida land has made many a people rich over the years and the big transaction this week in Hardee County where CF Industries Inc. acquired 19,555 acres for phosphate mining from the Stuart Bros. of Bartow is an example.  The Stuarts were paid $101.5 million for the land, most of it pasture and ranch.  That calculates to about $5,190 per acre.  Later, while searching land records in DeSoto County (the Stuart land area of Hardee at one time was DeSoto), Tribute Heartland staffer Arch Abernethy, discovered that the father of J.K. and W.H. Stuart (the sellers of the land this week), acquired the property in 1906, most of it for the price of $3.50 per acre.  That amounts to an estimated 142,700 per cent increase in investment, or, about 2,000 per cent per year for about 71 years.  [Which would mean this clipping is from ~1977. – Great return on investment for sure!]

    Tuesday 1991 - [Phoenix]  Off to Green Valley at 5:45 with the Morgans, who would play golf while we visited with Milt and Kate Foster.   Kate's sister, Sally and her 2nd husband came over for lunch.  New factory mall at Casa Grande [now mostly empty stores].  Catherine got new pair of shoes there.  Late supper at the Chinese Restaurant on 35th Ave.

    Thursday 1992 - [Thanksgiving] Thanksgiving, brought GHU over at noon and took her back about 7pm. She enjoyed seeing Ginny, who now weighs about 18#.  Cleaned the curb and cutter at GHU and the yard with the lawnmower.

    Friday 1993 - [Newark to home, GHU funeral pending] Left Newark about 10:30.  Julie had fixed us ham sandwiches with veggies which we ate en route home.  Made some purchases at Big Bear in WCH plus a stop at the old fashioned bakery Jim Smith came over about 4:30 and went over the "details."  Roberta brought Catherine down and also the new edition of Particular Places in Ohio.  John and Julie brought Joe for he had had several changes of planes.  Mares had driven from Boston to Lancaster where Larry started from.  Cris and Angela picked up Bill and Mary.  Cris and Angela left their children at home.  Rob didn't get in gear early enough to come.  [My recollection is that Rob claims Aunt Mary didn't tell them that Grandma had died until the night before when she asked if he would take them to the airport.]

    Saturday 1994 - Hauled two loads of wood chips over to the Church.  Went to Wilmington in the pick-up to get a book about Sol Wachtler – double life.  Stop at Foster Haines, got a white shirt, Van Heusen "Editions" + two pairs of socks and a necktie, Robert Stock, $6.50 originally $20.

    Sunday 1995 - [Lake Worth Florida] Went to SS (about 50 there).  Bob Hornback spoke.  Rob and Cindy (17 and 14 years in teaching) took us to Lucille and Otley's for lunch.  I walked to Gulf Stream Hotel.

    Tuesday 1996 - Cut our Christmas tree from across the street.   Roberta called, spoke with Joe.  He now has a gallery in Scottsdale.  Got my right eye examined.

    Wednesday 1997 - [to Newark] Drove to Newark, to Pond studio for which John had made appointment.  This guy talks so much it is hard to know when he takes picture.  Went to Church that PM with John, Julie and Kate.  Went to Amish bakery near East Main. 

    Thursday 1998 - [Thanksgiving, Phoenix] Ate at Fiesta Inn in Tempe (same ownership as Cherry Valley Lodge).  Very nice buffet.  At Kings Sid showed us how he gets on the internet to check on the "obits" in Iowa.

    Friday 1999 - Crowsons went at 9AM to see the Hannahs, then we all went to Wilmington to see Ruth and I went to the Court House.  Had lunch at Young's Dairy.  Ginny liked to feed the animals.

     HH's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]

    Thursday 1989 - [to Lexington, KY for Thanksgiving] Mother and Jean and I drove to Lexington to meet MV, Don and Sandy at L&N Seafood Restaurant (Green Roof Mall) [L&N was replaced by Regatta Seafood in 1994, and the mall is now called Lexington Green.]   Buffet $9.95.  MV felt lousy.  She (MV) is house and cat sitting for her music teacher (Virginia Bowles) at 1125 Buttonwood Ct.  What a large house, especially the bathroom suite off the mater bedroom  (he works for Salvation Army). 

    Friday 1990 - Beautiful day.  Transplanted trees and shrubs + hauled down a lot of brush from Betty Thompson's.

    Saturday 1991 - [to Santa Fe NM] Flew to Albuquerque where we rented a car and drove to Santa Fe.  Had reservations at the Picacho Hotel [no longer listed, may have changed names], then had dinner at La Casa Sena.  It's cold there.

    Tuesday 1993 - Jean got Jay Ewing to come and help put up the storm windows.  Mother still won't drink much liquid.  Sadie hopes she will hang in there until Roberta arrives.  Put some leaves on the garden.  December issue of National Geographic came.

    Wednesday 1994 - Dow Jones Index down 92 points.  John, Julie and Kate arrive.  John had sheet on Concorde flight to London from Columbus, Ohio and back on the Q.E. II at $5000 and UP.  Also talking of Izaak Walton place in Essex MT for a family get together.  Ted Wallen in hospital with kidney stones.

    Thursday 1995 - [Orlando Florida, Thanksgiving] Went to the Peabody Hotel at 11am to see the 5 ducks "run" to the fountain.  Then to Church St. Station, 1886 RR station and shop.  We ate at Lili Marlene's [not currently a restaurant with that name in Orlando], we were there 2 hours.  Next door was Brady O'Grady [possibly Rosie O'Grady's which is listed as a former entertainment place at Church Street Station, now closed] where fellow played and sang.  We walked around Lake Eola.  Back to Disney Village, what a crowd.  Had to call lock man to get into our room.

    Saturday 1996 - Back from LA and the Australia and New Zealand trip.  Joe Hiestand Family had party at Snow Hill for Joe's 90th birthday.  The plane ticket cost was $1379.

    Tuesday 1999 - John, Julie and Kate arrive.  Kate likes to play librarian.  Grant was at Wells again.  Grabills [?] were in re conservation easement.  Also John Hill about the wrecked car, where title signed by P/A.  Jean had spaghetti for supper and some crispy cookies that really turned out brittle.  Dr. Weatherington called and said my blood tests were good with a low PST.  They are starting to move things out of the old NV School.  Kate is a finicky eater.

    Recognize this handwriting?  I wasn't around in 1925 to write the message but saved it until 2004.  Here's my exciting message of 5 August 2004:
    Hi! Glad we were able to get our tickets to fly to Ohio at a bargain price ($99 one way) so close to Thanksgiving [family get together to see Kate perform in the Nutcracker].  Seems like fall already with kids back in school and we are immersed in planning fall programs.  Summer session of storytimes ends this week.  Total registration for children's reading program this summer was 11,333 an increase of 5% over 2003.  Next week is meeting to begin planning for 2005.  When do you leave for Asheville?  Love, Catherine & Gerry

    St. Louis Missouri library postcard c1910
    St. Louis Missouri library postcard c1910 addressed to Miss Lucy Dinsmore, Minneapolis, postmarked 17 March 1913
    St. Louis March 14 – We have gone thro this Missouri Carnegie Library and while I cannot tell how many books are on the shelvles I have noticed that the children's room is considerably larger than our library.  Interior is entirely of marble and granite.  Hope you are well.  --E.L. Koch

    This is the second postcard in my collection addressed to Miss Dinsmore, the other one of the St. Paul Minnesota library was sent by the same person E.L. (E. Louis) Koch on 27 July 1919 at which time Lucy was living in Lutsen, MN, about 250 miles north of Minneapolis on Lake Superior.

    The Carnegie Library in Joplin, Missouri was built in 1902.  Other views and a current picture of it with more shrubbery can be seen here.  Other older pictures can also be found on the Historic Joplin website.  According to Carnegie LIbraries of the South Central StatesUnfortunately, per the library's historic views collection, the zinc roof leaked and the second floor was unable to bear the weight of its books. These were some of the reasons it was replaced in 1980.
