A collection of distilled sarcastic wisdom, numerous photographs, discussions of books and stuff to learn and more stuff to think about from a retired economics professor turned blogger and photographer.
Two photos taken during our first trip to Hawaii in 1974. I only took about a dozen photos on this trip and they were all almost pitch black. Nonetheless, I saved and scanned them and these two photos emerged. Rather miraculous, isn't it, considering I haven't seen them in the 41 years that have elapsed since I took them? The top photo was taken at the Polynesian Cultural Center, the bottom photo at Waikiki Beach in Honolulu. This trip was the first of many that my wife and I, and some times some of our family with us, took to Hawaii and Maui until we had to put the Hawaii chapter of our lives in our memories. Jack Davidson had been my close friend since University of Wyoming days and he was on the faculty at the University of Hawaii for many years. Our trips to Hawaii to see Jack and his wife NaDee remain among our most cherished memories.
