The Merrie Monarch festival has come & gone for another year...I can't wait for next year! These performers in their colorful dresses really lit up the night for us! A huge Mahalo to everyone who makes this splendid festival possible! Not only the dancers, let us not forget the support staff that gives their all, the community members that volunteer their time and the families that have sacrificed to support everyone! Mahalo Nui Loa!

This is my kitty...she is so soft! As far as we can tell, she is a Siamese mix...we picked her up at the Hilo Famers Market back on 2003 from a family giving away kittens on the sidewalk. Since she is a Hawaiian Kitty she doesn't mind the rain and often comes in the house completely soaked! Because she is Siamese she can be a little, well...umm, Crazy. The kids call her "sketch" because she jumps at things that aren't there and goes all twitchy for no obvious reason. I tell them she sees with cat eyes and hears with cat ears, and while those are things we can not see or hear that doesn't mean they aren't there. That usually freaks them out for about 10 minutes... she is also the most affectionate cat ever! Loves the laps. The other day the family was watching a movie and we were all in non lap conducive positions...she stood in front of the TV and cried until one of us provided a lap, she immediately took advantage and slept the next two hours in my sons lap...and she complained loudly every time he tried to move! Oh yeah... her name is C.A.T. say it out loud as you spell it... sounds like See A Tee ;))

We had a Canoe race down at Pohoiki Bay about a week ago, the weather was awesome (especially after weeks & weeks of rain!), and everyone was out enjoying the sunshine! The racers started showing up before 7:00 AM and by 7:45 there were canoes everywhere! All of the great colors shining in the sun, wonderful sight. I recently joined the Puna Canoe Club, great club with awesome coaches (yes I am currying favor ;)) a tough work out but very rewarding. Come join us! Or at least buy Chili Tickets (our first fundraiser for canoes, etc... repairs).
