Hawaii - Hilda has no ticket!

It was 53 years ago today, and the fun continued even after they left Hawaii. Meryle picked up  this card on her United Airlines flight and wasted no time in writing it even as she drank champagne on the plane.
Happy "Trees" to you!!
En Route 5/8/57
"Ginny" -
Here we are! Hilda has no ticket!! We're on champagne up here at 2300 feet and dragging one foot. Will attempt to get Hilda to LA with luggage on arrival at Frisco. We're sincerely grateful for all. "Thanks" is so inadequate! Our love to you + a big heartfelt Aloha to both "Tex" and a great gal. Love, Meryle


  1. Teehee...that is just lovely!!! If only I could go to Hawaii and stay a little longer because of such a snaffooo...

  2. Wow, this brings back a lot of good memories. Hawaii in the late 50s and United Airlines. I've never seen this shot. Wonderful.

  3. What a neat piece of history. I didn't know they were flying to Hawaii then but I bet they had a great time.

  4. I want to know about amorous Marty!
    What an evocative and delightful art object all toghether. These are always great, but this one is particularly pleasing!
