Aloha Ahi Ahi UFOhana,

Sorry for the late posting . . . still recovering our Saturday Kanikapila / Birthday event. What a great night it was, blessed with fabulous weather and an even more fabulous ‘Ohana.

Mahalo nui loa to Pauline, Don, Ralph, Toni, Linda A, Marty and my dear Nohea for helping make the event possible. Mahalo to all of you that attended and shared your food, your song, your Aloha and the evening with us, making it an almost enchanted night.

Not to mention all of you that helped with the cleanup, recycles, tables, chairs, dishes (Terry and Karen) leaving nothing but happy echoes in the night . . . .

. . . . such is our UFOhana.

Below are photos and videos for that event. Sorry not to have livestreamed this one. Just ran out of time and energy to setup the gear . . . but there are some pretty cool videos online.

I think we need more duct tape.
