Today’s “Throwback Thursday” is brought to you by the Hawaiian Island of Maui! A number of years ago when the January temperatures in Chicago were a tad bit on the chilly side, I was looking at this incredible view on Maui. Chicago’s frosty weather seemed a million miles away. Slapping on sunscreen instead of shuffling through snow was a welcome reprieve.
I remember walking along the beach when I came upon a fellow with a Winnipeg Jets hat adorning the top of his sunburned face! Immediately I began to grin and said, “Hey, Winnipeg!” The return greeting went something like, “Hey, how’s it goin’?”
Ah, my fellow Canadians; you will find us in practically every spot on the globe with a friendly greeting at the ready. Knowing how extremely cold it gets in Winnipeg during the winter months, I daresay that the Winnipeger was only too happy to forgo his extreme winter garb and -35C temperatures for a bit of sun and sand!
I can hear the ocean waves lapping onto the beach…………….. Wait! No, that was just my sleep sound machine (I forgot to turn it off). Ah, but a girl can dream, can’t she? 🙂
