” May today be a marvelous day for you; I also offer heartfelt thanks for the wonderful things you did for me while I was in Oahu. Birding with you was a joy, need I say more? Yes, because you went beyond courtesy to befriend me and to ensure that I made it to the plane on time. Actually, warm fuzzies abound in my heart and smiley faces appear in my memory as I recall eating fish at the market, peeling prawns by the roadside, spying red-tailed tropic birds amongst the cliffs, chasing red-crested cardinals, and enjoying the in-your-face shama. What thrills. Thank you.”
