Sandy & Kathy went to do some girly girly shopping while I did some manly blogging action. We did get to meet for lunch at Bowsers Pizza and followed that up with a “small” gelato from TuttiMelon.

Someone from the office forgot I was in Honolulu and called me at 5:35AM. Since I was up, I thought I would treat myself to breakfast at the hotel restaurant… $16.00 for pancakes! Forget that,  I went back to Honolulu Coffee Company and got a chocolate croissant and a cup of coffee. 3 more stamps until I […]

Woke up at 3:30AM and finally got outta bed at 5:30AM. Went downstairs and had a cup Kona Coffee and Banana Bread on Kalakaua Avenue, watched all the tourists. Took off for work at 8:00AM. Ate lunch at Pearl Harbor Popeye’s. I think it’s so funny to be eating Popeye’s in Hawaii. Got back to the hotel […]

Just got a hold of Sandy’s photos from her little SD880. As usual she’s making me look bad.

I’ve been submerged up to my neck with in-laws. They’re sleeping all over the house. There’s a constant noise level sun up to sun down. My niece Maxie has not yet learned to use her “inside voice”.  I’m cooking for 9. And as much as I try to convince them how much of a pain […]
