Billboard Hot 100:
March 17, 1981 – April 9, 1981
Mom finally went to the health club in Hermiston with a friend. Then she kept plugging away at her job cleaning up the retirement home. But in a good twist of fate Mom got a better job as a sales girl at Burnham’s Department Store in Hermiston. At the time that was one of two stores that anyone who was somebody shopped at. The biggest news to come out of this time frame was Mom and “R” going to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and getting married a lot earlier than planned.
This Week’s Thoughts
I kind of remember Mom and “R” getting married. Mat and I obviously weren’t there but she did show us a few pictures she took with her camera after they got back. I also remember the reception that we’ll talk about in next week’s episode. I always thought it was at the Grange Hall outside of Hermiston but according to the Journal it was at the Park Hall in town. Of course I could be thinking of a family reunion at the Grange Hall too. It would make sense because all I can really remember are Mom’s side being at whatever function I remember. “R’s” family would have been at the reception and I don’t have any recollection of that at all. I guess the most obvious answer is that this event was 33 years ago and I was only 6 so… there’s that. I’m really interested in going further into the Journal because I’m starting to remember more and more things that are happening. I really want to know what Mom’s take on these things were.
