UPDATE: I have selected a few photos from my Hawaii trip that the winner will be able to choose from.  However, I will leave it open for the winner(s) to choose any photo from any of my Hawaiian vacation posts. And since I'm so late posting these, I'm extending the game for one more day, until Tuesday noon, May 18.

See the photos at the end of this post.

Remember a few months back when it was snowing and freezing across the country and I moaned and groaned about never having been to Hawaii?

And we all spent a week of "I'd Rather Be in Hawaii," dreaming about palm trees and reading about four wonderfully talented Hawaiian artists and winning lovely gifts from them?

Well, that was the final straw. I made the decision. Next Wednesday, May 5, I AM GOING TO HAWAII!!!!!  My sister Fran and I will travel to Oahu and Kauai, and I have plans to meet up with some of the Hawaiian artists I interviewed above. I can hardly believe that this is really going to happen ... finally! 

I decided that I am going to take my laptop with me so I can post and have you enjoy the trip along with me.  At least that's the plan. I hope I have the stamina after long days of sightseeing ... eating ... swimming ... sunning ... sleeping ... taking millions of pictures ... sunning ... eating ...

To kick off my trip, the May Charades contest is going to be ... movies that were either based in or filmed in Hawaii!  I'll let the contest run until I return and post the winners on May 17. The prizes? I don't know yet. I intend to take lots of photos while I'm in Hawaii, so I'll select from those photos to prepare a lovely gift for the winners.

OK, here we go!

How it works: Each photo below stands by itself to represent a movie that was either based in Hawaii or was filmed in Hawaii. There's eight movies in total.

The rules: You need to guess the movie titles for each one.

The prizes: The first person to correctly guess all eight songs and a second winner selected by random number generator from all comments submitted will receive a selection from the photos I take during my trip. 

Want to increase your odds? You can be entered in the drawing up to four times: (1) Take your guesses in one comment (only one guess entry per person), (2) In a separate comment, tell me your favorite image from one or more of these shops, (3) In a separate comment, tell me you signed up to follow my blog (or that you already follow), (4) In a separate comment, tell me you became a fan (or that you are already following) of my facebook page:
 (More than four comments from the same person will not be counted.)

This contest will run until May 17.

What are they:
