Ahh, I had forgotten that you were going to Kauai. Now you have to find the time to go back and visit the Big Island. Kilauea volcano has been erupting non-stop for over 20 years. You can rent a decent house/cabin at Kilauea Military Reservation for cheap.

Wow, you did find the time to write this after all! I wouldn't have minded waiting a day or two, but I'm happy you 'filed your report' early! Thanks for a good read - as always.

I've been through Honolulu International Airport so many times over the last 30 years that I've become oblivious to the decor. I don't remember ever seeing the signs you posted. How'd you find them online?

Last Sunday or so at the supermarket, I saw a sign that said something like "no checks over $200 accepted" and I thought, who would spend more than $200 on groceries? Never even dreamed of "$1200 worth of groceries". Wonder what the checkout person thought ...

Sorry to hear you didn't get a good seat at the ceremony but I guess being at the head table made up for it!

What is it that you don't like about the beach? The sun exposure? Would being at a beach at night be better? (I haven't done that in 15 years.) Not that I'm saying you _have_ to like beaches. Just curious.

"Now they all probably think I'm a lesbian."

I'm DYING here!!!

LOL - Cali and her new husband look terrific! (not that I expected any less *grin*).

Sounds like the wedding went off wonderfully well. And yes, you crack me up... the last person to sleep with her... OMG!!! Excellent.

I'm not a beach person either... not for sitting. I love walking along beaches - especially rocky beaches like we have up here in the Northeast.

Wow, what a fun time! Glad you got to go and have fun, and she does look lovely (dress blues.. so much better than a rental tux!) I used to hate sand so much, my parents could leave me on a blanket on the beach, and I wouldn't move off it! So, they are NOW letting crochet hooks on the plane? last time I tried to get on a plane with a crochet hook, I had to leave it behind! When we had chickens, my neighbours were a bit miffed about the roosters..

This is the same person who, when she was a little girl, LOVED to play on the beach for hours. We spent a lot of weekends on the Gulf when we lived in Houston and enjoyed trips to Florida. She and her brother loved to make me nervous by going out as far as they could (they were both excellent swimmers and loved adventure). Unfortunately, that Scotch-Irish skin doesn't like the sun! Sarah, your pictures are just beautiful!!!

maybe I will "room " with you in Vegas, since you are a lesbian.

(Only kidding)

I am so glad you had such a fantastic time, and I am glad to hear Hawaii is sort of a satire of itslef, that is really funny. I kept picturing you in a Wes Anderson Hawaii while you were there.


Many happy years, and you two look gorgeous as always!!!

PS the reception was very pretty

Sarah - You are hilarious & I don't even "know" you in person...

Hono is funny, though, isnt it? But you can't beat the Hale Koa.

They look great.

Looks like and sounds like a great time. I think it is sweet that you got to spend the last night with your friend. That is not a kind of platonic intimacy that many people have have or share.

It's nice to get away from home every once in a while, if only to realize we really like it at home.
