A Day Like No Others

Received this a few days ago in the mail from my neice Yvonne in California. She will be coming to visit her Uncle Pepe this month some time.

Something To Keep

A smile costs nothing, but gives much.
It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give.
It takes but a moment but the memory of it sometims lastsforever.

No one is so rich and mighty that they can get along without it, and no one is so poor that they cannot be made rich by it
A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and is a countersign for friendship.

It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discourged, sunshine to the sad, and is nature's best antidote to trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. So give them one of yours, as no one needs a smile so much as those who have none to give.

And then surprise, surprise, Monday morning I am fixing myself a late breakfast and I get a call. My neice Yvonne and her daughter, Bridgitt are downstairs. Wow, I was shocked. Finally let them in and I apologized for not having the place in better order.

They wanted to eat breakfast and I took them out for a little walk around Nanakuli Ridge. They met Jeffrey and Carla and Jeffrey took them into Nanakuli Super to get special stuff. Then at the market, they got a suggestion to go to Waianae Shopping Center for breakfast.

I thought about Tacos And More, hadn't been there since I went online. Chorizo con Huevo sounded good so we went there. They still remembered me and my relatives enjoyed their breakfast. We had a nice long conversation, so many things to go over.

Yvonne and Bridgitt got many photos and also some at the Maili Beach Park. Got home and got a picture with Jeffrey and Carla. Then up to the apartment, played some music, gave them some caps and they were ready to go. I walked them out and outside the UPS was waiting for my new computer. Got it upstairs and made my self a little of the Nectar of the Gods.

I was tired, it was very emotional for me, not having seen these relatives for years. A couple good stiff ones will do it. Then a nice nap.
