Party at Nanikeola

Ran into Ruth and Mabel in the afternoon and the party was still on. I promise to get some pictures for the blog. Got busy on what I had to do at home and was downstairs before seven. I guess everyone had already eaten and the music was being set up. Got my first two photos.

On the left, the bazar and the buffet closing up. On the right the seniors socializing inside.

Left: Getting the presents ready. Right: Annette giving out the prizes.

The structure of the party was becoming more fixed. Some of us got more than one prize. The volunteer entertainers and kokua people decided to leave. I had to get that photo. By that time I had gone upstairs to take my two bags and get me a drink. Then I had a chance to get a couple more pictures.

On the left: The volunteers (bless their hearts) and on the right, opening up the presents.

And I thought it would be the right time to leave. Play a little music at home, have another drink and piddle with the computer. It was a nice day.

Anodder Good Day

Woke up late, checked my email and finished up a blog. Had me a nice breakfast and then did some clean up on my computer. It is always a mess. Gotta get some stuff at the store, and I passed by Kokua Mao, and I explained to Evelyn that I still need someone to help me clean up my place.

I went to the store and waved to the people in the Ono Steak and Shrimp. Got all my goodies at the store and on the way back there was a nice set up for a picture at the Ono. I told Carla I would be right back. Got my groceries put away, cleared the camera and went back and got the picture.

Jeffrey, Charmaine, Carla, Vern, Debbie, Brooklyn and Journey.

I like this, we are getting more people into the Nanakuli Ridge blog and that is good for everybody. And I was lucky to get a good quote from Jeffrey, from John 14:6, very fitting for the Christmas season is upon us.

Jesus says, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father but by me."

I went home and within an hour I had some help to clean up my place. Evelyn and Rosie, I thank you. I was running out of Rum and I did not want to wait for the next special. So I got a small bottle and it should hold me until I can get the big bottle on special. Nice music, interesting new items on the computer, a couple hours then have something to eat and get sleepy and conk out.

It is picking up

The hits are going up slowly and I don't know why. Of course we have never had anything like this in Nanakuli Ridge. I will just have to let it roll.  I have been to the Fast Stop and can't quite get more than two people in the photo. Then they are not sure what it is all about.

"I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show,
or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it,
as I shall not pass this way again." ~William Penn

Next door at Mobil, they seem to be always busy, so I can leave them alone for a time. On the other side MacDonalds has a nice crowd, may try them next. I tried a McMuffin and not too bad. And I got a photo of Sack N Save, our "big" location.

Sack N Save, the anchor of the Shopping Center with Nanakuli Ridge in the background.

Passed by on the way back by the Malasadas and they are not sure what I am doing. One of the ladies hadn't even turned into the Internet to see the last picture. The people around there were not too interested in a  photo either. What for?  But I came back a got a photo.

Chrissy Bolt and Roza Mendonca, with not a very appetizing background, "Nanakuli Super."

May have to go all the way to Kentucky Fried next time. Maybe I can get some people on the way. Just got to keep it up. Eventually people will get wind of what I am trying to do.

ATTORNEY: Can you describe the individual?
WITNESS: He was about medium height and had a beard.
ATTORNEY: Was this a male or a female?
