102020: Vanikapila Iwakālua kūmāwalu (#28)


Aloha Ahi Ahi Kakou,

Can you believe we’re on our 7th month of Vanikapilas? It’s been a weird, strange, challenging, but fun journey so far. I’m hoping you all continue to stay healthy and safe along the way.

As a reminder next week’s Vanikapila will be moved to 6:30pm – 8:30pm in honor of Halloween. We figured evening would be best to sing with the Spirits and put us all in Halloween mood. We also encourage all Vanikapila-ers to dress up (aka “Strum As You Aren’t”) and send us photos of you in you HW Regalia. We’ll be sure to post them on the blog! I’m sure the OK-ers will be “Coming As They Aren’t” as well.

Nohea’s making a final batch of Halloween PPE masks. They’re going quick, so you may want purchase them while they’re available!

Below, the link to this week’s Vanikapila. Btw, believe it or not, Hotel California, from our last Kanikapila, was actually blocked from being viewed by YouTube due to someone claiming copyright infringements. What? Really, a little Ukulele Ohana like us, copyright infringement?????

Anyway, I’m thinking that someone working for the Eagles must have put in the complaint, or possibly Google’s Copyright AI (Artificial Intelligence).

I’ve trimmed the video out to allow access to the rest of the Vanikapila #27 content. Thank you Dolores for pointing that out.


bright clear azure skies,
sunlight drenches the cool earth,
morning has broken . . .

See you folks in cyberspace or lookin’ out my back door!

Malama Pono,


Please, no pet-parazzi! Please . . . Yo! Django! How you doing?
Mom, can I take my cone of shame off and play with Jake?
