Arrival of John

Aloha Everyone,

The Bus is an excellent means of transportation. With our Medicare card and $1 and a transfer, you can go to many places. This morning we took The Bus to the Ala Moana Center, one of the hubs, and then using a transfer, we took another bus to the University of Hawaii at Manoa. The weather was absolutely beautiful and we didn't mind walking 6 blocks to the First Hawaiian Bank University Branch.

Shortly after our return to the condo, John arrived with suitcases packed with items he and his wife Pat would need for their wintering period in Hawaii. Pat is flying to Honolulu in two weeks. The last time we saw the two of them was at their home in Antioch, Illinois more than a year ago.  Though we stay in touch via phone calls, FaceTime and exchanges of  text messages, it is always wonderful to be in the same room.

For dinner, Jeff met us at the Island Burger Restaurant in Ala Moana Center where we enjoyed a lively conversation over sumptuous gourmet burgers.

Aloha -- Cathi
