I completed my sophomore year in high school and a short time later Bob received his orders. We were going home to California for a short time and then we would be transferred again. When I learned we were going back to California, I was thrilled. I liked Hawaii, but it was such a small island that many people developed island fever (similar to cabin fever). I had become an island fever victim.
With my ear infection, I was limited on what I could do. The pool and the beach were out, unless I just went to lie in the sun. I spent most of the summer in the recreation center. I would also go to the movies. My primary interest was the guys I'd met. I still had several guys that I was very interested in, including Fred, Tony and a couple of other guys. I was very fickle. The guy who was in front of me was the one I was really interested in. I had no interest in becoming serious in any one guy. I enjoyed flirting with all of them.
