OK, the Good Nun is having her 30th Wedding Anniversary on Oahu Island this coming November! She will spend 7 glorious days and nights enjoying the wonders of Hawaii, just as all the Tourists do. Last time we were there was in 1986, the day after she got married. It would not go well for her though. On he first morning of her Honeymoon, she slipped in the shower and cut her wrist wide open on the cheap shower door down to the bone!! She got is sewn up, but could not swim the rest of the trip. I was almost a widower 1 day into our marriage!!! We had a SEEDY high rise hotel room on the 30th floor of some Wakkiki hotel. I forget the name, but it was terrible. This time we are staying at a Hampton Inn near Pearl Harbor, away from the tourists of Honolulu. should be alot better, free breakfasts too Last time we had to buy canned spagehtti to eat in a little Hawaiian market, and go to the Dole Pineapple factory to get Pineapple juice (all we could drink!!) this room has a coffee maker and a reefer, so not much cooking facilities. Last time we went to a McDonalds where they wanted almost $10 for a Big Mac!!! Wonder how much they are now? So what are we going to do for 7 days there??? don't know, but we will spend Thanksgiving there, so we gotta find some place that has turkey. Imagine how much imported Turkey will cost in Hawaii!!! I plan on buying a snorkle mask and diving in Hananuma bay. That is alotta fun. we will go the Arizona Memorial, which now appologizes to the Japanese for going to war with them, despite what they did to Pearl Harbor. we will go to China town and see what there is to do there. Eat some DIM SUM. Going to be raping the VISA card hard on this trip. Meanwhile, I will miss the Turkey day net unless I can find a KH6 Ham who will let us into his shack. the only radio I will bring is a Handy talkie which I will smuggle in with the carryon bag. I probably oughta get a new laptop for the trip too. My 10 inch netbook is fine for airlines, but only has Windows XP on it. Need a newer system and more horsepower. Rat bastards want $25 a bag to ship on the plane, so we will need carry on only that means no tools, not even a leatherman Clothes. She can wash our clothes in the bathtub and hang them up in the room to dry We will buy more Hawaiian shirts (matching of course) from Hilo Hatties or Walmart. I will need maybe 3 sets of underwear, her too, those can be washed. some socks too. Going to be GOING light, need room in the suit case to bring back all the JUNK we pick up there. (souveniers, reefer magnets, shirts and more orchids.) Last time we smuggled home a Coconut. It didn't grow So I need something to do for 7 days there. NO HUSBAND AND WIFE ACTIVITIES!! we are too old for that! we have a rental car and will undoubtedly drive over EVERY SQUARE INCH of the island. Any KH6 Hams read QRZed??? Anyone want to meet WA6MHZ and the Good NUN?
