You know, it's taken me a few days to get into the whole spirit of Hawaii. But now I'm finally learning to lose my uptight mainland attitude and embrace the island ways. I think my breakthrough came during that hula lesson. Speaking of which, are you going to leave that bag on your head for the rest of our vacation?
How's your year going so far, Earl? Great! Opal and I went to Hawaii. We stayed at the Royal Hawaiian on Waikiki Beach. The weather was fantastic. The water was bathtub warm. I got a great tan and learned to surf and dance the hula. And then I woke up.
