Aloha UFOhana,

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you?

I hope you’re all staying safe and dry out there. UFOHQ is still above water, but it’s still early in the rainy season. Did a bunch of repairs on the fence (again & again & again . . . ) this past weekend. installed the Hydrabarriers on the garage door last night. Secured our Hula Floor and tarps from the gale force winds with cinder blocks and empty 30lb Kitty Litter containers filled with water. Fighting fire with fire and water with water. Holo i mua!

Looks like it’s holding up . . . so far. Thankfully they finished working on the hill off North San Pedro, so it looks like we won’t be having a landslide anytime soon. All we have to do is batten the hatches, pump the bilges and strum like the Sun’s still shining.

What a contrast to last week Saturday’s beautiful weather. As you can see below, the Parkanikapiliens were out in force.

Brudda Keone K (John Kleinjans), whose sister just moved to the Big Island and just took up the Ukulele, shared the following with me. It was intended as a beginners song for her to play on her Ukulele. With his permission, I thought it’d be great to post to the ‘Ohana as well. Great footnotes at the end.


In fact, since I’m on a PDF posting mood, here’s a few more PPDFs (Past PDFs) handouts that some of you may have missed:





There’s a menu that appears at the bottom of each PDF frame (see image below). The down arrow allows you download the PDF and the four square arrows switches to full screen viewing mode.

You’ll need to hit the ESC on your keyboard to return to regular viewing mode.

dark skies marching on,
cleansing rains batter scared earth,
bracing for The Change.

Aloha A Hui Hou,
