Gerry went to an American Legion meeting last night. A lady that was there asked if he was from Hawaii. He was wearing a shirt that had "Aloha ke Akua" on the front of it. He told her no, that his wife was from Hawai'i.
She wanted to know what island...she is from O'ahu...he said his wife was too. Then she said she graduated from Kailua High School...he said his wife did too. She graduated in 1965...I graduated in 1960.
She gave him her contact information. I don't recognize her maiden name, supposedly she has an older brother. I emailed her last night, have yet to get a response from her.
I'm excited to talk to her...love finding people from home and who graduated from the same high school.
So we are fellow Surfriders...what could be better than that...small world...yeah...
Spoke with Faynette today. We have so much in common. We lived around the corner from each other when we lived in Kailua. She was neighbors to a couple of families that I babysat for. There are 2 sisters that live in our mobile home park that are both Kailua High graduates...she is sure she knows the younger of the two.
I went to the Ulta store in Citrus Heights this morning and took some of the residential streets to get home. I was in the neighborhood where she and her husband live. She wants me to go to the next American Legion meeting with Gerry (if he goes) so we can hang out and "talk story".
Enjoyed our telephone conversation so much! Looking forward to meeting her in person.
