Hawaii -- That thing called luck
Trip started out on a predictable note -- the Kitty Mir II capsule didn't want to come to Hawaii. Delta didn't load it onto the Northwest plane, although the two gates were nearly across from one another, and it supposedly will come tomorrow on a Hawaiian flight. Wasn't that much of a loss, though. Everything I needed I hand-carried, such as the poker computer. Have gun, will travel.
Met up with Mark and his nice car! Drove to a Korean restaurant near his place -- had the familiar staples of Hawaii cuisine -- the ice cream scoop of rice, a similar scoop of macaroni and salad with some grilled beef and chicken cutlet. Then caught a few beers at a bar in Ward Center, all the while talking about poker play.
That's about it for now, though. Will be excited to report on the days ahead...
