Pardon the football term, but, after all, the Pro Bowl is being held here in Honolulu this weekend. In fact I hear that we had some Steeler players on the plane with us. However, since I don't know jack about football, I didn't recognize anyone.

We're here! Warm and humid, a welcome change from the Cedar Rapids weather when we left this morning (0 degrees). We are on the 22nd floor of the hotel, with a lovely view of the Pacific. Cindy and I got settled in and now plan to explore a bit.

And, as you can see, we found fellow Iowans Donna and Wayne. They are holed up at the Outrigger Waikiki Hotel. We had drinks with them in the hotel bar, Duke's Canoe Club, named after a famous surfer many years ago.

At any rate, we're here, we're happy, and all is well.

Aloha!

Yes, guys, we're having a good time so far, but the four-hour time difference is starting to take its toll. I'm typing this at 9:30 Hawaii time, but that's 1:30 AM Midwest time, which is what our bodies are used to, so.....zzzzzzzzzzz

That warm wheather just seems to suit you guys. Going to try any surfing while your there?? Be careful.

How did you hear that you had some NFL players on the plane? Was there a buzz about the cabin from some of the other passengers?

Heat wave in Iowa today - I didn't even have to scrape the frost off my windshield this morning!

Have fun guys!

Yes, there was buzz on the plane, and then the stewardess announced it on the loudspeaker AFTER we landed, so we had to all give them a round of applause. Suppose she didn't want them mobbed by autograph seekers during the flight.

You made it to Hawaii without incident. Luck is on your side this vacation. Don't forget to have a drink for me at 6. I'm ready for a Busch Light.

Hey, there aren't any new pictures. Carey and I decided that we are going to stalk you on your website and keep harassing you. Connie will be at work on Monday.

It's almost 6 p.m. here and I'll toast you at the General Store.
