Mele Kalikimaka is the island way to say Merry Xmas to You!!!!
Hello again this time I feel like Adam in the Garden of Eden, and have just been delivered a most wonderful Xmas present and I didn't have to give up a rib for her, altho I would have given an arm or a leg: Yes, Santa's sleigh flew my beautiful bird to me here in the islands. She was supposed to come nonstop from Charlotte on an inaugural flt on the Wright Brothers famous day 12/17, but head winds caused them to drop down in LA to take on some more fuel. Sure glad the pilots weren't preoccupied with their laptops!!! See her pics as she came in!!!
Chris comes on 12/30 and then we go into nonstop with hunting on the big island and fishing on Kauai. We will try to fit in all our favorite places and resturants here on Oahu too. He has been accepted into a radiology residency at Madagan Army Hospital in Tacoma, Wa in 2010. Congrats, Dude!!
Shirley and Chris spent a wonderful TGiving with GG's/WH's family in Vero Beach; I sure miss seeing all of them and Matthew and Colson; I hope Santa is good to them!! Matthew has been doing Gr888 on the piano.
I will be 'hanging it up' on January 1, 2010. I have really enjoyed my work here, but I need time now with Shirley to spend the next 6 weeks finding our old selves in the 'old Hava'iki that we experienced 40 some years ago. Life is what the Lord gives us!!!! It is a gift--the present!!!
The Top Ten Events of 2009 are: my wife, my family X 10!!!!
A Very bountiful Aloha and Merry Xmas to all of you!!!! God Bless you and God Bless America.
