[I have now been to Honolulu three times in my life – and never once have I left the airport grounds.  The three following photos were from my first visit, August 1971.  Notice any changes in the last 44 years?  Well, Diamondhead looks the same . . . ]

[The long flight to MSP, and here’s me seat window.  It’s cracked . . . and, OMG, repaired with Scotch tape!!  Help, am I in an episode of “The Twilight Zone”?  (I don’t know how I made it home alive?)]
