WAIPAHU HAOLE'S PALACE

Thanks for stopping in at the Haole's Hangout. I'll give a little background of myself.

One of two brothers

born in a small town of

Pearl City on the outskirts of Pearl Harbor and raised in the small

sugar mill town of

Waipahu on the island of O'ahu, the "Aloha State". Formerly the Territory of Hawai'i and one in the five island chain of the Hawai'ian islands; O'ahu being the primary tourist attraction. Honolulu is the capital of the Territory and Principal port of Hawai'i and is well known for Diamond Head, Waikiki Beach, the University of Hawai'i and Pearl Harbor. The island of Hawai'i being the largest in size, Hilo being the Principal harbor and is famous for it's volcanos; Mauna Loa and Kiluea, and the well known Parker ranch.

My parents as well as many other haoles on the island decided to evacuate

Paradise shortly after December 7th. 1941. After the attack on Pearl Harbor many were uncertain of their future. Many have asked me why I would ever consider leaving? And the answer being; who would have known the outcome of the war at that time? Actually I had no choice as I was only ten years old. Both parents

met and

married in O'ahu. Dad was in the Army stationed at Fort Shafter in Honolulu and Mom had just graduated from McKinley High School. They were both born in Virginia. Mom's family left for Arizona when she was at a very young age and after a few short years the family moved to Honolulu for her fathers health.

Both parents are now deceased and interned in the O'ahu (formerly Nu'uanu) cemetery in the Nu'uanu Valley.

I'm a retired professional photographer and reside in San Jose, California (Silicon Valley). I served six years in the U.S. Navy from 1949 to 1955. Twenty two months on the island of Guam in the Marianas Islands and the remainder of my hitch aboard the U.S.S. Heermann DD 532, a Fletcher class destroyer built and commissioned at the Bethlehem shipyard in San Francisco, Ca. 6 July l943; decommissioned in San Diego, Ca. 4 July 1947 and recommissioned in San Diego, Ca. 12 September 1951. My goal in enlisting in the Navy was to get duty on a base or large ship having a photo lab and strike (train) to be a Naval Photographer. As it turned out Uncle Sam had other plans for me and in the end I ended up as a

Gunner's Mate 2nd class.

I'm married to a wonderful gal who keeps me happy with her Mediterranean cooking and also shares an interest in my treasure hunting hobby. Recent DNA Profile research shows she is 308.87 Egyptian, 17.55 Mediterranean, 0.02 Mexican, Maya 0, Aztecan 0 and North American, 11.57. Very interesting and Saudi Arabia 12.02. Actually she likes metal detecting at the beach with me so as to be sure I'm scanning the sand and not the Bikinis.

For some strange reason, every lady's ring I have found at the beach fits her. She always tells me as I head for the beach, "Bring me back a Diamond Ring!" Recently I came back with a

14K white gold with seven diamonds mans wedding band. Now she tells me to bring back a mans diamond ring figuring the odds it will be a lady's ring. Smart lady! A few summers ago I hit a Santa Cruz beach about eight p.m. after the blanket line had left, and just before heading back to the truck, got a good solid signal and WHAM-there it was in my scoop.

22K Yellow Gold with three Diamonds. It was hard to keep it a surprise, but on Christmas Eve 2001, I put it on her finger.

Oralia comes from a large family, so I never get lonely. Our addition to the family,

Sassy keeps us all on our toes. Actually I have lots of hobbies;

metal detecting, metal detecting, more metal detecting, doing digital photographic work on my computers and hanging out on Jeff Kinzli's California Metal Detecting Forum.

I actually used to dig out the old outhouses (privies) in San Francisco for antique bottles. Check out San Francisco Diggin's. I never dug out any privies less than a hundred years old, but that's history. I haven't been as active in digging as I was in the '60s but I still cherish the

bottles I dug or found in the mountains.

My first love is

metal detecting, both on dry land and the beaches. I use two of the "Whites" detectors; The DFX Spectrum and the Surfmaster PI. Oralia uses the "Whites" Classic ID and loves the silent search mode.

We are both members of the "Treasure Hunters Society of the Santa Clara Valley".

My brother Gene resides in the small town of Cazadero, CA. Quote from The Cazadero, California Homepage "The second rainiest spot in Calif. with 85 inches annual rainfall (Gasquet in Del Norte County has the highest average with 90 inches) .In 1937 it rained 143 inches". Unquote. Cazadero is located near the well known town of Guerneville situated on the Russian River. Gene is just about an hour from Santa Rosa and approx. two hours from San Francisco to the South.Mister CazMan's Page.

Gene is a retired

operating engineer

Backhoe construction is his specialty.

Gene and I are both active in metal detecting and working our websites.

It appears I'm writing my autobiography, so if you're interested in any way in metal detecting, treasure hunting and would like to visit some cool sites, please click on the links of your preference listed below. Enjoy!
