121019: Tis the Season


Pehea kou hauʻoli ka kou!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

It’s that time of the year once again. Tis the season for Holiday Ukulele!

What better way to start “The Season” than with a special luncheon at the Whistle Stop. Mahalo Charlotte and Sandy for the invite. See below.

Followed up by Kanikapila at the Campbell Hall.

Then onto the Fairfax Christmas Faire the following morning.

And ended our fun filled week of events at the Gnoss Field Community Association’s Christmas Party.

Nohea and I would like to say Mahalo Nui Loa to all that participated in the events and shared their Aloha, joy and spirit of the UFOhana. Especially to Amelia Earhart, Capt. Noonan and our former flight attendants who made a special appearance at Gnoss Airfield! Mahalo to our Sonoma ‘Ohana for making the trip out all the way out this way and to our Bass Commanders, Laura, Kimo and Sandy, that kept the heart of our Kanikapilas beating and to Charlotte for sharing her Hula with our dancers, bringing our music to life.

What a colorful, caring, fun loving bunch of Ukulele Pilots. We are so fortunate to have you all in life . . .

Speaking of Events check out this week’s events at http://ufohana.org/events.

chilling night crawls through the land,
warm heart embraces.

120319: A Break in the Rain


Aloha Ahi Ahi UFOhana,

Seems we’ve been given a short break from the storm. Hope you’re all doing well out there. We’re still above water at the UFOHQ thankfully. Though it has delayed setup of our exterior Christmas decorations. Luckily, Nohea is little bit ahead of schedule on the interior.

Congratulations to Cindy for finding the Christmas Pickle and winning an Ukulele at last Friday’s Kanikapila. More prizes coming to a Kanikapila near you so stay tuned!

Below our last Saturday kanikapila of November . . . they just seem to come and go don’t they? Especially considering that November was a long month. Good seeing Gabe again. Amazing to think he was just a teenager a while ago, hanging with us back in the Sleeping Lady Days. Thanks Cindy for bringing your son by!


a swirling blackness,
heaven’s tears falls to ʻĀina,
parched earth rejoices.

This is the way . . . I have spoken.

Aloha a hui hou,


oooooooh pretty Christmas Ball . . . .
