Remembering Hawaii in the 70’s and 80’s

Heck Yea...YES!! I'd forgotten that they were called "Kamaboko " (I'm crackin' up) no way was I gonna be caught dead...or alive wearing "slippers " I mean slipahs. Petes? I'm really laughing now. I just ran across a portion of a decal sheet containing the 1st Cav's insignia from the 1/32 scale Huey that I...my Father, bought for me at Pete's in Pearl City. It has to be at least 41years old! I'm going to use the insignia in the next few days on either a 1/25sc. gear bag, or a 1/25sc. lap top. I don't remember Stoker wheels, but I do remember learning on Gators. Thanks for your post, you have a great memory!  (Apr 25, 2015 | post #3752)

Please! let's move on from here. Anyone remember the 1976 Hokulea? I would have loved to get down to the beach to see all the pageantry (and girls! JB) but I had a pick up game that day. Because of that expedition; I developed an interest in celestial navigation, which I never had an real opportunity to master.  (Feb 19, 2013 | post #3596)

Thanks Chief! I'm not calling" JB" an idiot. However, one does wonder... I'm delighted he didn't bother to ask me who Leon T. is, or was (perhaps he's already acquainted) I've would have been reluctant to tell him "he's probably the next President of the U.S.A." I didn't want to hear of him, bricked up in his home sending out letter bombs.  (Feb 18, 2013 | post #3595)

Sorry for the confusion, perhaps it was my poor grammar and typos. I "jabbered " in reply to your remark "Obama's wars" (??) Further puzzlement came with your avowed "I believe in my country" which seems to intermit. I digress, you win! YAY? You have an opportunity to eat everything on Byron's menu before they jack it in...and I'm extremely jealous.  (Feb 5, 2013 | post #3587)

When you said "middle easterners" were you just referring to people from West Virginia? or did it include of people from Ohio as well?  (Feb 5, 2013 | post #3585)

Damn! Dude! War without causalities? causality |kɔ&# 720;ˈzal ɪti|1 the relationship between cause and effect.( that's from Mr. Webster) And as far as I know; "the right people" died along with the others when the planes crashed... I'll demur to your claim of belief in your country, or did I miss the intended tone of your remark regarding President Obama?  (Feb 4, 2013 | post #3581)

Your Homeboy IS indefensible on escalating these illegal wars. But let me ask you something; After 9/11 were you one of the many in the cheering section hoping for a pound of flesh and lower gas prices?...at who's expense? I didn't vote for any the remaining candidates in the 2008 General election because they all hinted at exactly that; escalation. I'll attempt to tie in to this thread; In 1975 some of the refugees from that tragedy called "Viet Nam" started attending Aliamanu. I can't imagine what that must have been like, leaving your relatives, friends and culture behind, and being essentially an exile. And all those killings and maimings on both sides for nothing,,,not a damned thing. V  (Jan 29, 2013 | post #3578)

YEA! shows that our ancestors, recent or otherwise, had exquisite taste when choosing a place to live, LIVE not itinerantly transmute.  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #3576)

" Old Hawaii is fading fast" Same same! In the Hitchcock classic Vertigo (1958) the film's "heavy" says "Scotty, the things the that spell San Francisco to me; are quickly fading" YOU AIN'T NEVER LIED! Right after this weekends N.F.C. championship game, in "my" neighbourhood, the ancestral home of the Forty Niners, other than myself, I DIDN'T SEE ONE PERSON wearing a cap, jersey, sweatshirt or t shirt. Plenty of people out and about, but no visible natives, nor facsimiles. I was in a taxi which covered about ten blocks of the area. It wasn't until we were near the Mission district that it began to appear normal; lot'sa Niners gear, and fans honking their horns, and whooping it up! Used to be during all those past N.F.C. title games, you didn't even have to watch the game, you just had to open your window, and could tell by the cheering (or moans and groans) what was going on in the game...no more.

Hi Deb! I spent some sleepovers on Shafter ('75-'76) Did you know the Reid family? Allen, Michael, Susan and their cool dog Otto. I saw Jaws, The Trial Of Billy Jack, The Hindenburg and more at the Ft. Shafter theatre. If you were there then; we probably ate some of the same popcorn. You had one of the best libraries on the island there, The sport section was phenomenal! I was "recruited " to play football for the Shafter Condors right in the bowling alley one night. But I was too short to play the position I wanted, which was fullback, I wanted to be like Larry Csonka, you know OLD TIME FOOTBALL! Frank Lewis, one of my schoolmates, was the star of that team.

Patty's! first time I've ever had frozen peas and carrots in fried rice (now it's common) My step father (Viet Nam vet) told me that is a southeast asian way of making it. SURE WAS GOOD! Barney's? is that the place famous for the teri pork sandwiches? I remember them (in my swine eating days) being fabulous! V  (Jan 1, 2013 | post #3564)
