Super Bargains Got Us to Hawaii

Gloria was head research librarian at Wauwatosa Public library near Milwaukee Wisconsin.  Dennis called her in late September with the news that Northwest Airlines had settled their month long strike with pilots.  Northwest was offering cheap fares for the month of October with double frequent flyer miles.  It's over 10,000 miles round trip to Hawaii so the FF miles were enough for a free round trip in the continental US during the low season.  We stayed at the rentable condo at 444 Nahua.  The price was very good when compared to the hotels.  It got even better for Erv and Gloria, their inexpensive apartment was upgraded at no cost to a suite near the roof top

Gloria is one who does not make quick decisions.  The fare offer was less than two weeks before we went.  Glow was able to get the time off arranged, she covered all the bases, so away we went

We toasted Gloria's Birthday 7 Times and sang with strangers

We celebrated Gloria's birthday as it passed each time zone from New York to Hawaii'.  Seven times we toasted to the event of October 7.  We took an elevator ride up to the suite with a Bottle of Brandy in hand.  Others entered on several floors and Dennis, Erv and the strangers all sang Happy Birthday to Gloria in our assent.

Ervin got splashed

Our activities around the island of Oahu were wonderful.  We had rented a convertible, Dennis burned a CD with Hawaiian music and were drove everywhere on the island.  Much memorable were the hang gliders over our heads, coming off the mountains, and us watching them with the top down. 

We took a catamaran ride out into the Pacific Ocean.  Erv had fear of open waters so he chose to set in the middle of it by a hatch.  Erv did not realize there was open water underneath him.  Several times the water splashed up and wet him well, he was not happy but Glow and Dennis laughed and laughed

If you want to promise rainbows, make sure you promise Hawaii
