So there I am minding my own business at 8:15 AM, waiting in a long line for coffee in the hotel lanai in Honolulu when I hear a voice.
“Hello there, honey!”
I turn to see a little lady in a Hawaiian print shirt.
It’s Myrt Powers from chapter 30 of War Bonds: Love Stories From the Greatest Generation!
Myrtt and her husband, Walt live in Cheney, WA. but have wintered on Oahu for 30 years. Turns out Walt swims at the hotel pool every morning at 8 AM. Keep in mind the Powers will celebrate their 70th anniversary in December!
It was wonderful to catch up with Myrt so far from home.
The next day I toured the Army Museum at nearby Fort DeRussy. This sign caught my eye.
War Bonds and Love Stories– both are with me everywhere 😉
