Throwback Thursday

15+ years ago.....Ken, his brother and our friend, T.

15+ years ago…..Ken, his brother and our friend, T.

Hard to believe only a month ago we were in Hawaii!  I’ve been back 3 weeks but seems like much longer ago than that!  I guess I’ve done a lot and of course, my life has changed to that of a “retiree”.

We had a lot of good trips to Hawaii with friends and family over the years.  Our friend T loves to cook, and he’s very good at it too!  Whenever we went with them, he would do the menu planning and shopping for all the dinners.  At one time, he used to pack his own knives because inevitably the condo would have dull or crappy ones!  Dinner was in their condo and drinks later in ours…..we had a pretty good routine.  We’d all throw a few bucks into a pot to go towards the dinners.  Once depleted, we add some more.  These were some of the best holidays.  The girls would get the salads and appies ready and the guys would man the bbq.

a few years older and one missing :(

a few years older and one missing 😦

This year though there was only one dinner with T and S.  There were just too many of us to do the “usual” thing.  But him and Ken’s brother did the bbq thing…..definitely not the same…..definitely NOT!

Lots of great memories from those trips.  Great memories are a good thing to have.
