Going Home

We are on vacation, house sitting for my brother in Hawaii. I will be taking care of their cat, guinea pig, parrot, and chicken. That part should take about ten minutes per day. 

After that, we are free to hit the beach, go for a hike, drive up to the North Shore for lunch and a shave ice, or just plain goof off. I always love returning to Hawaii - it is my heart's home.

So, while we are gone, I have linked for you to some amazing Hawaiian music videos that I think you will enjoy. My friend Meredith, who is a kama'aina (native born) in Hawaii, sent them to me, so they have some true Hawaiian chops.  Enjoy!  Here's the first one:

Oh, don't you just love house-sitting in a special place? It's almost like living there for a short while. Enjoy, now off to hear your music.

Wow! That music video is exquisite. The language itself is so musical. I look forward to more. Have you lived in Hawaii?

Diane, yes, I have lived here from 1955-1958 as a child, and from 1965-1973 as a young adult, and returned frequently to visit family. I'm very emotional about Hawaii, love it so much.

Jeez, Zooms, I lived there 1955-1959! We must have overlapped at Pearl Harbor Kai School, but I guess we weren't in the same grades.

Cookie, maybe even in the same class! We lived in Makalapa - where were you? My Dad was a commander then. Fun to think we might have been friends!

We lived on Ford Island. Had to go to school by boat!
I guess my dad was a LTCDR then. His job was boss of the flight control tower. I think they called it Admin.
I also lived in Hawaii for a couple of years when I was much younger, and don't remember it. Then again for a year after I graduated from college.
My claim to fame was I got my tubes tied at Kapiolani Hospital when I was 23. Jeez.

I knew you weren't among the ragamuffins I ran around with, but maybe you were that pretty little blonde girl in my class...

Oh, and, there is a causeway to Ford Island now.

Hm. I *was* a pretty little blonde then! ;) Some old coot sang to me once, "Debby Debby, I've been thinking, what a pretty girl you are. All the boys on Ford Island think that you're a movie star."
I know about the bridge. It just ruins memories for me. 

Cookie, I'm sure there is a story behind the Kapiolani Hoapital reference. Maybe some day I will hear it.
