The following Saturday we Vani/Kanikapila’d once again, after which I was treated to a “Surprise” Birthday celebration. Check out the photos to see what I mean.

Mahalo Nui Loa to Pauline, Linda A, Marty A, Sandra, Gary, MelAnn, Nohea, Ralph, Karen, Don, Marty, Tucker, Barbara, Sandy, for organizing, to my beloved Nohea for making it one of the most Funner Birthdays I’ve ever had, and to our UFOhana for all the Aloha and makana you’ve shared with me all these years.

And finally, a Go Fund Me link for a friend of the UFOhana and close friend of Claudia Vazquez, Miyera Disher. Who,though survived the Maui Fires, suffered burns on both arms and material losses. Please Kokua if you can . . . . Mahalo.

when we recall those before,
when we need to help.

Aloha Kakahiaka UFOhana,

Good Morning UFOhana. Another week past and a fresh one up ahead. Sorry for the late posting, falling asleep at the wheel, on more like at the keyboard.

I mentioned last week that we’ll be at the Elks this Friday for Kanikapila and to join in on their 1st Friday Birthday Celebrations for September. Chocolate Cake Included!

Please RSVP ASAP below if you’ll be joining us. Brudda Joe Tato will be manning the Food Replicators for this Voyage (btw, did I mention that Sept 8 is Trek Day)!

flickering shadows,
pale moonlight softens the night,
wind whispers gently.
