The Caveman--Chapters 52-53

The facts I give about Hawaii are accurate. My last marriage (the really good one) took place there, and in addition to getting married we did a fair amount of tourist stuff. I also visited alone some years later to spread my late wife's ashes in the sea off Oahu (she'd wanted them spread at Punchbowl, but after she died I found that Punchbowl is strictly a military cemetary, and she didn't qualify, so the ocean nearby was the best I could do). You know, my hotel overlooked that part of the ocean, and a couple of days later I awoke to see out my window a rainbow that seemed to emanate from the very spot where I'd strewn her ashes.
I'm very likely not going to be able to post on Friday. I'll try, but Hurricane Matthew is headed my way and I'm apt to lose power. We'll see. Otherwise my next posting will be next Monday, by which time power will surely have been restored.
