Chilling and cruising day. Frannie, Lou and I went to Dai Ichi Ramen for lunch. Lou wanted to go there to have Frannie try udon noodles. Then we went to Kamakana Alii Mall for halo halo dessert at Magnolia Ice Cream & Treats. We briefly stopped at that zipline place next to the Kalaeloa housing to pick up brochures… Continue Reading “Frannie hanging out with us”
I was thinking about old technology, old software a while back while working on the last laptop I bought and the purchasing/licensing stuff required of MS Office, how it’s all online download/install. No more being sent discs! And in my mind, the sometimes hassle of re-installation because there’s… Continue Reading “Before the Microsoft Monopoly”
Lou and I picked Frannie up at her sister’s house in Wahiawa and we went to dinner. Monterey Bay Canners. It was good seeing her after all these (40!) years and catching up.

Damn how I remember playing this back in the day! It always lent to my naughty thoughts/inclinations which made the game fun. I think it was one of the first full featured storyline type computer games for mature audiences.

Yeah, okay, I was into the Bee Gees back in the day. From disco days. Tho, this song didn’t represent partying disco nights for me.
I was just 4-5 months into the Army at the time, in AIT at Fort Gordon, GA, and severely, miserably missing my baby (Lou). I’d spend almost every evening writing to her…… Continue Reading “Mahalang for my baby – Bee Gees Too Much Heaven”
Nostalgia attack this evening after searching for some computer stuff and I saw a thing about a Tandy 1000TX computer. My first computer purchase to replace the dinosaur C/PM based Xerox computer we had was a Tandy 1000SL. I bought it at Radio Shack in Waynesboro, PA while killing time waiting for Lou who was … Continue Reading “The Tandy 1000SL”
Whenever I think back to when I first got stationed in Hawaii, and Lou joined me after we got married, I think of a ‘magical time’ in our life. You know, life was good, the world was ours to conquer, we were living everyday on our terms.
And the warmth of the islands was in our veins, in our hearts. Unlike… Continue Reading “Pua Olena”
I don’t know why but every so often when I think back and review many of the teenage memories now getting vague, some of the not so positive flashbacks come embedded with the happy ones. Some I have to mentally wipe off the cobwebs to remember. The good and the bad, the positive and the negative, they all weave… Continue Reading “Darker youthful memories again”
