Gerald with my brother, Alva and sister, Betty Jean Went with the Stillwater lub to Hawaii. What a wonderfully, splendid :is. "I," we shall always It would be alright to but the first time was the epitome of any vacation, yes- sir-ee! You may visit all the islands. But Oahu is the most populated and has Honolulu as the Crown Jewel. Although Oahu isn't the largest of the Hawaiian Islands, it's by far the most populous. But that doesn't mean the whole island teems with people. In fact since most residents live around Honolulu, the state "capital," and the Mid-Pacific region's economic hub, the rest of Oahu is as laid-back and serene as its sister islands. For a visitor in the know, it's a little like getting two islands for the price of one! First, there's the thriving city of Honolulu, filled with cultural activ- ities, top museums, international restaurants and fabulous shops. Watch a hula performance or see a play or catch the Kodak Show. Shop in designer boutiques. Visit the 1879 Lolani Palace, home to the last king and queen of Hawaii, the only official royal residence in the United States. Check out Cap- tain Cook's maps at the renowned Bishop Museum. Luxuriate over traditional Hawaiian food or any of the world's cuisines. Or go to the luau, where, if you were as luck as Gerald and was asked to go on stage and perform with beautiful Hawaiian Hula Dancers, hey! He did a splendid job too. And then there's the other Oahu, the peace- ful tropical paradise. It's a land of small, quaint towns hugging beau- tiful beaches, a place of mountain waterfalls, shimmering rainbows, calm turquoise bays surrounded by Banyan trees and swaying palms. Hike a forest trail crowded with "orchids," really! Never befieved I would see such a sight, also color- ful birds. Swim, pick a pineapple right off the pineapple stalk, in the field where they are growing. You have never tasted real pineapple until you've done this, so sweet, so juicy, nan down your arm sweet, mmmmmmgood Maynard! If there is one getaway that has something for everybody, it's Oahu. The perfect place to get a jump on Spring, Wow! Wish we were there, just for a tittle bit. "You," everyone needs to go, just one time. That's all you'll ever need. I think Gerry and Patty have gone two or three times. Everyone should be so lucky. I'm thankful for the one time. That you give them they gather in; you open your hand, they are filled with good. Psalm 104:26. T'dl we meet again dear friends and relatives, I'm out of paper. Dee Volente, Pour pren dre conge, I wish you Peace and Love, Aloha!
