102521: Vanikapila 44.21


Aloha Ahi Ahi UFOhana,

Entering this post under solar lights and on my dinky little laptop. Got to do this fast as I don’t know how much battery I got left. We’ve been without power since Sunday morning and then this happened:

Yes, yet another flood, which make 3 years in a row, 5 total since I’ve lived here. They told me that this was a 100 Year Flood Zone. I didn’t know they meant it would flood for a 100 years!

It got into the garage, almost into the house. But fortunately they finally sent out someone from DPW that got the emergency pump running, although 2 hours later . . . the water was already about 2 feet deep at the street. But the main house was spared . . . this time.

And they wonder why I was against the “Extra Tax” for flooding? Like more money is make the pump work?

Moving on to happier moments . . .

Mahalo Nui Loa to all that attended Madison’s Aloha Oe Party and even wore Camo’s! We have such a wonderful ‘Ohana!

Below are the images from that “sad but happy” day, to paraphrase Madison, “I’m glad I’m sad about going away . . . ”

Aloha A Hui Hou No’eau! Can’t wait to see you in your Marine Dress Uniform.

Btw, is just me or was that MRE Chili Mac actually good?

This Saturday (10/30/21) EVENING, 6:30p – 8:30p-ish, we will holding our annual COME AS YOU AREN’T Vanikapila Potluck.

To be clear, this means we won’t have our 11a-1p Vanikapila. I’ll be streaming that night’s event like the other evening events.

We’ll most likely be indoors, but if weather is permitting and the yard is no longer muddy, we’ll might hold it out in the back yard . . . but the mud thing is a big MIGHT.

Also, I’ll be away visiting my folks in Hawaii for the next two weeks so no Vanikapilas and Elks. Which means our first Vanikapila for November will be on the 20th.

Againthis event is open only to those who are FULLY VACCINATED.

Text me at 415-300-7804 if you will be attending, for seating setup, and if you’ll be bringing a potluck to share with your ‘Ohana.

Here’s the link to the Live Stream.

Hammers from heaven,
Rain screaming from angry clouds,
Race against the flow.

OK, time’s up on the laptop battery and my phone HotSpot.

Stay tuned for any updates!

Malama Pono Kakou!
