Aloha UpBeat Times! My girlfriend, Gloria Russell and I, Ronald Perez, enjoyed a week on Maui in September, 2019. We took a ferry to the island of Lanai and I posed for a photograph in front of the Lanai Community Center. We discovered that Lanai has a part of the island set aside for cats. We also determined the island was in need of gasoline. Photo taken by Gloria Russell, who tried to make me look good. ~ Aloha, Ron Perez
