Postcard from Hawaii

My Mom and Dad are having a rough week - we received the postcard below from them today. My sister, Kalin, and I surprised them with a trip to Hawaii for their 30th wedding anniversary (November 16th). They never had a honeymoon when they originally got married, so we figured they'd enjoy one now! My dad was stationed at Waikiki beach when he was in the Navy - so he's having a lot of fun re-living old memories. I used Kurt's sharpen, resize, sharpen again technique on the scanned postcard below - seems to have worked pretty well. My gung-ho mom writes that she went running at 5:30 in the morning and there were a lot of folks already up and about. Running!? At 5:30 in the morning?! Yeah, she runs marathons too! She hadn't exercised in her life, in the traditional sense - we always got plenty of exercise living at the cabin - until my sister and I moved out. Now she's over 50 and in the best shape of her life! Go Mom - you're awesome.
