Aloha Ahi Ahi UFOhana,

Hope you’re all doing well and enjoying our great weather, in spite of it being a warning of yet another drought season. Let’s hope for some rain in the near future.

I want to say mahalo nui to those who participated in the Elks Dinner / Kanikapila this past Friday. A special Mahalo Nui Loa to Faith and Chauncey Ako for sharing their Aloha with us. Such a treat to have Faith sharing her talent with us. So nice to see so many familiar faces from the UFOhana.

Mahalo to Joe Tato and the Elks for having us and hope to see you all again next 2nd Friday of the Month. Keep checking the blog for details!

I’m sure you all remember Brudda Ken Emerson. Apparently, he’s been very busy while in quarantine. Renovating trailers, building Tiny Homes, doing zoom interviews. He’s even got a trailer joke for us . . .

Get it? Nyuk! Nyuk! Nyuk!

Uh, I wonder if Jay Leno has one of those?

It’s good to see that Brudda Ken is doing well and keeping himself busy.

Here’s the link to this week’s Saturday Vanikapila.

ripples follow behind us,

See you folks this Saturday! Be safe, wear a mask and vaccinate!
