My Father taught me how to sew, use a sewing machine when I was 11 years old. I learned on my Mother's Wedding Gift of a Singer Sewing Machine. I never though that I'd still be sewing 50 years later.

When pick up my older Sister at the Air Port in Honolulu. There is just one question I have for Her "Goodies or Sal's" ie Goodwill or Salvation Army. My Dad infected Her as well.

I like to give free Travel advice for first time Hawaii visitors. I have been to most of the Hawaiian Island when I was working on Tug Boats that sailed the Hawaiian waters. But as they say "is another story".

Aloha, Sailor
