I've often wondered if I should have stayed, too. What would I be doing? Working for HPD, too, since I was an MP for the Corps? Hard to say. Went back ten years later to find our old 'house' abandoned—it was WWII vintage concrete block construction near the rear gate of Pearl Harbor. We peeked inside the back door to see hundreds and hundreds of dead cockroaches on the floor. Apparently someone had exterminated. Big time. But hey...we always laughed that roaches were the state bird in Hawaii. That nasty thought aside, I miss Hawaii very much. Beautiful place, beautiful gracious people...

My old surfboard is suspended from the ceiling in our Hawaiian-style kitchen as a reminder of that wonderful time...
