The preparation continues - Ken

Well, I went out today and bought three very loud Hawaiian shirts and a pair of shorts that are so bright I can only use them for sleeping in, assuming I sleep with my sunglasses on. I tend to favour blues, browns, greys and whites when it comes to clothes. I have accepted the Hawaiian challenge and plan to look just as stupid as everyone else.

Not much else to report except that in our insurance company’s eyes, Hawaii is not a part of the US of A. President Obama will be interested in hearing that. I guess there is no way to get around paying the rental company for liability insurance. Oh well, let the haemorrhage begin.

I find that I am getting intrigued more than excited about the trip. What must it be like to live full time in paradise? Fun for a vacation perhaps, but whether it would be any different living here than anywhere else? I am not sure. I am going to make a point of talking to the locals and getting their take on life in paradise. Yes, I am aware of what the answer will more than likely be, but I still plan to reach out and touch the people. With any luck I will stay out of jail and get a little island insight. I will have to be careful, as these are the same people that performed human sacrifice and thought that clothing made of grass would be comfortable.

I shall continue my research. I think Hawaii Five O is on tonight…

On Thursday March 31 we will be standing and waving by the Duke Kahanamoku statue on Waikiki Beach from 3:00PM Hawaii time till about 3:10PM. That is 9:00 PM Ontario time; 7:00PM Alberta time and 6:00PM BC time. I have no idea what time it will be in Australia, Korea or Cambodia, you have to figure that out yourselves.

I don't know how this is working for other people, but I have to cut and paste and then it works just fine.
