What are the odds that I’d be in Hawaii before Christmas when the world is playing my favorite movie, Jimmy Stewart’s “It’s a Wonderful Life” while riding a Harley-Davidson and driving a Lincoln Town Car for 11 days while auctioning his Ho Omau Ranch in Kona. For good measure I bought a copy of his movie with me to the resort hotel.
