This was a tough one. I’ve been on some amazing trips. I finally decided to ask myself one question. If I could only take trips to one place for the rest of my life, where would it be? I chose Hawaii.
My husband and I honeymooned there and my nephew was married there. When my husband and I went there on our honeymoon we tried to do everything. We started out on the big island of Hawaii and ended up in Oaho. My husband is a World War II history buff and could essentially live at Pearl Harbor when we visit.
I love everything about the islands. There is so much to see and do. There are also amazing locations where you can do nothing. It is a combination of beautiful scenery, rich history and vibrant culture.

Las Vegas, September 1953
Lily Genarro’s career as a Las Vegas showgirl lasted a total of five minutes and thirty-six seconds. Unfortunately, it didn’t end the way she’d hoped. She made sure her fan kick went left when it was supposed to go right. What she hadn’t intended was for the buckle of her shoe to hook Mary Ellen Pinski’s feathered headdress. A second later the entire chorus line went down like a row of rainbow feathered dominoes. She tried to slink away, but her shoe was still attached to a string of bright red feathers. Instead of escaping backstage, she found herself face first on the floor, trying to decide which was worse – being caught in the middle of a mob war in Chicago or living with an uncle in Las Vegas who was sure all her problems would be solved if she was a star.
An hour later, she sat in her Uncle Tony’s office while the show’s director fired her, without actually saying the words. She twirled a black curl around her finger, trying not to show how happy she was that at least one thing had gone the way she’d wanted tonight.
“I’m sure you can understand, Lily. We simply can’t risk another…incident like this.” Myron Lynch shuddered and glanced out of the corner of his eye at Tony Genarro, the owner of the casino and hotel. Myron mopped his brow with one hand and leaned in to pat her knee with the other.
Lily shifted back slightly. She’d nicknamed the mousey little man Myron Drench, due to his unfortunate tendency to sweat and, right now he was dangerously close to dripping all over her.
“Four of the girls are out for at least two weeks. Mary Ellen has a concussion,” Myron continued.
“A concussion?” Tony raised an eyebrow. “From falling down?”
“Well, no.” Myron brought his handkerchief to his face again, although she didn’t understand why. By now it was so wet it couldn’t do anything to stop more moisture from trickling down his forehead. “Apparently, when your niece tripped trying to get off stage, she kicked Mary Ellen in the head, and knocked her out.” He started to twitch, glancing back and forth from Lily to Tony.
