We are from Lansing, MI, originally from Oberlin, OH (Barb) and the Black Hills of South Dakota (Bob). Both of us have histories with UH, Barb as a graduate student, and Bob on the English Department faculty. Barb taught (music) for a year at Mauna Olu which was a small college on Maui. We last visited Hawaii 37 years ago when our daughter was 14 months old. Both of us are now retired.
