    Didn’t know the armadillo was a unit of measure.
    So I looked up how big 33 armadillos were…. Turns out it’s 3/4 of half of a giraffe 😳
    There ya go

    Looks like circa, 1978 being the last time you were here judging from the cars in the King Kam photo. ;)

    The wife says we were there in '84 or '85?

    I was barely out of the Army back in 84. I had just entered into the tourist industry driving visitors from the airport to their hotels in Waikiki and back again on the flip. Who knows, you might have been fortunate enough to have had me as your chauffeur. B)

    Those were the days, we worked hard and played harder. I was seeing bands like Santana, Ozzy and Rush in concert back then. Renting hotel rooms in Waikiki, partying all night after work and clocking in the next day to do it all over again. Such sweet abuse. ;)

    It's probably a tad more today.

    EDIT: Apparently it was new in 1983. Just before the Apple Macintosh.

    The ride from the airport was interesting. A Chevy wagon IIRC, we were in the back seat. A huge insect crawled out from under the front seat. Wife was wearing sandals. It touched the wife's foot. She screamed, he laughed, said something about it was his pet. She tucked her legs under her and wouldn't stop looking at the floor until we got to the hotel....was that you? Hang loose bruddah!

    We were riding around in a rental car and a company of soldiers walked into the roadway out of the brush. That was kinda kewl!

    Also, those green buttons look like they'd require two fingers to depress. Workplace repetitive motion/stress injury.

    Dunno. I swear I recognize her but just can't put my finger on who she is.

    Yep, looks as bad as her...I hate to call it music...let's just say her attempts at making sounds.
