It’s A Small World – Part Deux

Perhaps you remember the first “It’s A Small World” blog entry.  Basically, here’s the abbreviated edition:
So Moonlight Kiss was just done performing at Hawaiian Brian’s Lounge and I was talking story with Jules – one of the lead singers.  She told me how she grew up in Kailua and for a little while – around the same neighborhood that I grew up in.  But I couldn’t place it.

That is until I asked Sally what Jules’ maiden name was.  When Sally told me it was S., the 💡 immediately went on in my head.  I asked Sally, does she have a brother named J.?  And Sally replied “Yes”.

That’s when I realized that Jules was the little girl next door that I used to play with when we were growing up!

What a small world!

***

So after Paula and I started dating, I brought her over to dinner to meet my dad.  She thought that he looked familiar.  It took a couple days until Paula’s 💡 went on.  She met him at a party at her good friend’s house before she met me.  It turns out that Paula’s friends D. & D. N. (yes, twins) are nieces of my step-mother.

What a small world!

***

So on Saturday night, my co-worker, E.P. and her some of her friends joined us for a night of FunkShun at Hawaiian Brian’s Lounge.  Sally was talking story with one of the girls, D.H. and it turns out that D.H. works right across the hall from Sally!  💡

What a small world!

***

Another one of the girls recognized a guy’s name on the RSVP list.  So I see M.H. in the bathroom and I tell him that one of the guests sitting with us knows him.  That struck his curiosity so I take him over to meet her.  Immediately, M.H.’s 💡 goes on and he remembers her when they used to work together at Longs.

What a small world!

***

So as I’m talking to my new friend and find out that she worked in the pharmacy, I mention that C.C. over there is a pharmacist.  She looks at him, her 💡 goes on and she remembers working with him too!

What a small world!

***

It’s Monday and we’re at a Valentine’s Day lunch at work.  I’m talking to E.P., my co-worker who joined us at Hawaiian Brian’s Lounge the other night and we’re talking about Kailua.  She says that her cousin lives in Kailua.  I ask who is that and when she mentions W.H. – yup :idea:.  I tell her that her cousin and I were best friends at one time! W.H. actually emailed me shortly after I started blogging.  I shared stories of how W.H. and I had our first taste of alcohol together – a 99¢ bottle of Boones Farm Strawberry Hill wine.  And a cigarette that he stole from his grandfather.

What a small world!

***

So at the same Valentine’s Day lunch, I’m in line to get lunch and I start talking with another co-worker.  I ask L.Y. where she graduated from and she said Kailua.  Wow!  What’s the chances that I’d meet an Asian who went to Kailua High School too – although we didn’t attend KHS during the same years.  And she tells me how she grew up close to my old stomping grounds.  What’s the chances?!  So we’re talking about the old Kailua landmarks and stuff and I mention about the all the bands that are emerging playing the retro music and she says that her cousin plays in one of the bands.  I ask her who is that and she says B.A. You got it – :idea:.  I tell her that I know him and that they lived down at the dead end street in our ‘hood too.  I remember because when I used to catch a ride to high school with my older brother, he used to stop to pick up B.A.’s brother, N.A.

What a small world!

***

A few weeks ago at work, one of the Tech support guys, L.M. mentions to me that he overheard me mentioning a birthday on January 14th and asked if that was my birthday.  I tell him no, that 1/14 is Paula’s birthday.  He shares with me that his birthday is on the same day too.  When I tell him the year, he says his is on that exact day!  So I ask him what high school he went to and he says McKinley.  I tell him that Paula went to McKinley too.  When I tell him her maiden name – 💡  I find out not only are they classmates but they know each other too.

So I get home and I’m telling Paula that this guy at work shares the same birthday as her.  Before I could even tell her that they’re classmates, 💡  💡  💡 – she blurts out “L. M.?”

What a small world!

***

The first time I met BananaFysh, I ask him his last name.  Hmm, a good friend of mine is from Maui and shares the same last name so I ask him if he knows C.G. 💡  Turns out that she is his cousin.

What a small world!

***

There’s quite a few MLC posters here that reconnected from posting here.  Share those stories for all our new readers.

I’m sure you all have some “What a small world” stories – after all, this rock we live on is only so big.  Tell us your stories.

    Salmon? Ooh, that sounds good. Of course, around here, I’d have to be careful. Salmon is popular, along with another fish. That “other” fish is something I don’t think I’ll ever eat. 😯

  2. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: sometimes I use spam. They sell small portions of ham in the supermarket. It’s a really quick dinner.

    Tomorrow I’ll make salmon patties. Delicious and healthy!

  3. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: Yeah, only thing is, I don’t have ham. I have those little breakfast sausages and some lup cheong, but no ham. 😀

  4. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: The power of a suggestion ❗ 😀

  5. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: reading that you had a ham omelette, I had to go to the store to go buy some eggs. Now I can have an omelette myself. 😆

  6. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: Take a minute and try the instructions I sent you. If you find them confusing, or if I missed a step, let me know where I went wrong, and I’ll correct and re-send.

  7. LINDA KATO says:

    Our simple ham omelette was delicious. Hubby was too sick to go anywhere. Cooked, washed dishes, ready for contesting.

    Hope everyone had a restful Sunday ❗ 😀

  8. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: Thank you for the FB instructions. You are so patient! I appreciate all the help.

    Okay, now you have 2 entries done! See how much fun that was ❗ Imagine if you WON one of them! You’d be hooked like me ❗ 😀

  9. LINDA KATO says:

    4G: It was more fun when we could see what number we were on ❗

  10. Mark'75 says:

    @DIO: Yah! Been trying new places though…

  11. David In Oregon says:

    Mark’75: the e in e-mein stands for “elusive” 😉

  12. Mark'75 says:

    @Seawalker: No, e-mein is STILL a mystery!!! I’m still in the hunt.

  13. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: Check your FB messages. See if what I wrote makes sense, then try it out. If any questions, respond back via that FB message.

  14. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: If you have the old instructions I sent you about putting youtube video links on here, it is the same idea. Go to the website with the contest, copy the website address, paste it here.

  15. 4G says:

    . . . till 400! LOL!

  16. 4G says:

    . . . more entries . . .

  17. 4G says:

    Just three . . .

  18. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: Thanks. Good luck! I don’t know how to copy and paste so took me a long time to input that link for you.

    Going to make a ham omelette for dinner, back in awhile.

  19. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: Don’t worry about the link, it works fine.

  20. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: Dell is sponsoring the contest for American Airline miles:
    200,000 miles and lesser miles also, enter before 2/28/11,
    1 entry per person. Here’s the link: http://dell.com/content/topics/segtopic.aspx/3_million_mile_giveaway?c=us&cs=6099&l=en&s=eep&link_number=17967581&dgc=DM&cid=63009&lid=1579347

    Link supposed to be continuous w/out a space but wouldn’t let me type it continuously.

  21. Keoni says:

    @Seawalker Yes, Milton Hershey was an amazing man and such an inspiration. Though never able to have children himself, he and Catherine found a way to benefit so many more children than they could have just by themselves. I, and thousands of others, are his ‘kids’ through the school he founded. Like our alma mater says in the first line, “All hail to thee, Milton Hershey..”

  22. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: Million miles? I wonder how many trips that is to/from here to Vegas? 😆

  23. 4G says:

    Cya, Seawalker.

  24. 4G says:

    @M – Duct tape – truly a modern miracle, yeah? I was thinking – ho, that buggah must have hurt coming off! LOL.

  25. Seawalker says:

    Movie with the family tonight. See ya!

    (And now it’s 10 more toes.) 🙂

  26. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – if we pool our toes, we outta be able to come up with 13. 😉 lol.

  27. Seawalker says:

    Guess 13 toes come in handy… LOL

  28. Seawalker says:

    Note to Seawalker file. Count your toes and we reach entry 400!

  29. Seawalker says:

    @LK – Thanks, working on it. Doing pretty good on doc’s order not to drink. But the weight is not coming off fast enough. Have to lose 10 more pounds before I make another visit in March. 🙂

  30. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO & MLCers: I found the direct link for the United Airlines contest for a million miles plus $5K cash. Enter before 5/31/11. 1 entry per person at: http://unitedmillionmiles.com

    Good luck ❗ 😀

  31. Seawalker says:

    @Keoni – LOL. Just the other week, someone was talking about Mr. Milton Hershey. The first thing that popped into my mind was @Keoni! Interesting to find out how Mr. Hershey never gave up on his failures. But all it takes is one…

  32. LINDA KATO says:

    M: be extra, extra careful. Hope the fun you had outweighed the pain ❗ 😀

  33. LINDA KATO says:

    Seawalker: you have to start exercising and eating smaller portions. I started exercising with Richard’s Simmon’s sweating to the Oldies. And trust me a chubby person really sweats! I’ve lost 10 pounds and I still have a long way to go. Walking is good too!

  34. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: you have to look for the menu and look for sweepstakes or special offers and click on that. I’ll look in a moment to check out their websites.

  35. Keoni says:

    Gee Seawalker, I’m glad that I inspire a song in someone! 🙂

  36. David In Oregon says:

    M: Wow, I didn’t realize your board was made of carbon fiber, but yes, I do understand about weight. Bicycling is the same way. A lot of folks want stuff lighter and lighter and lighter. Manufacturers are all too willing to comply with their requests, and charge dearly for it. 😯

  37. Seawalker says:

    Hey M, just like the movie, a little Windex for everything… LOL

  38. M says:

    4G, I always have duct tape with me. It fixes anything for the moment.

  39. 4G says:

    @M – I was cracking up at your comment about using duct tape to waterproof the bandages. LOL. Take care, man.

  40. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – I saw a little bit of a replay of the Farrington basketball game this morning. It just so happened that I saw what I think was the one-handed dunk you mentioned. It was near the end of the second quarter. According to the announcers, that guy is only like six feet tall, too! Amazing.

  41. M says:

    LK, I was careful but accidents still happens.
    Seawalker, got my tetanus shot last month when I went to the ER.
    DiO, the board is a carbon fiber composite. Strong and light. The more impact resistance the heavier the board will be.

  42. Seawalker says:

    Hey Keoni, every time I see you I start to think… To All The Girls I’ve Loved Before. Need all my toes to do the math on that one… LOL

  43. Keoni says:

    @DiO I thought the same when I saw Dell.

  44. Seawalker says:

    @DiO – If you’re not here is April, then I’ll send you a gallon size of Park’s. But Dang Hao Li might not know why if you start smelling like garlic. LOL

  45. David In Oregon says:

    Seawalker: 😆 Yeah, it is…problem is, Park’s is a local (Hawaii) product, so finding stuff out here is a real challenge, about as challenging as finding a Tasty Chop Suey take out order in the Seawalker kitchen. 😈

  46. Seawalker says:

    @DiO – I thought the secret was the Kim Chee sauce? Kim Chee, a food and not a Chinese person… LOL

  47. David In Oregon says:

    Seawalker: I haven’t made Chicken Alice’s chicken yet. I still need to find the “secret” ingredient. I’m not sure if any stores here sell it. Worst case scenario, I might have to “import” it from the homeland. 😆

  48. David In Oregon says:

    M: Sorry about the board and the leg. Do they make boards out of more “impact resistant” materials?

  49. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: I must admit to being clueless, as I can’t seem to find out where/how to enter any of the contests

  50. Seawalker says:

    @LK – The NY’s resolution was to lose 15 lbs. Not going too good for me. 🙂

    @M – Took your tetanus/booster shot? The every 10 year one? My doc just told me to take it. For you SUPers, that’s a good one to take.

    @DiO – Hey, how did your Alice Chicken turn out?

  51. David In Oregon says:

    Good afternoon everybody

  52. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: I hope you entered both contests so you can visit Hawaii for FREE ❗ 😀

  53. LINDA KATO says:

    Seawalker: talking about noodles is making me hungry ❗

    Another hot humid day in Hawaii without tradewinds ❗ Another Zippy’s day to cool off there ❗ 😀

  54. LINDA KATO says:

    M: I thought you were going to be careful during this 4 day weekend ❗ Please have your knee checked out after this weekend. Wouldn’t want it to get even worse! Have fun but take care ❗

  55. LINDA KATO says:

    Good morning MLCers ❗ Happy Sunday ❗ 😀

  56. M says:

    Guud Morning from da beach house!
    Yesterday I split open the same cut on my knee yesterday. Bummers. Even worst, I got a huge ding on my board, that even hurt more than my knee and I can’t use my board until I get it repaired, I’m so bummed 🙁
    No ER this time. I bandaged up my wound, duct taped it to waterproof it and went back out with masakos board.

  57. Seawalker says:

    Good morning everyone. Kind of cool outside. But absolutely no wind. Going to be humid…

    @4G – Hey, your Govs took the junior crown last night. Saw the highlights. One of the Govs players went soaring and made a one-handed dunk. Only Kalihi boys can do that! Liliha, well, we got that Asian syndrome and no hops!

    @Mark – Did you find your noodle place yet? We went to Hoy Tin last night and order a pan of soft gau gee mein. Was good with lots of veggies. Whole tray was gone.

  58. David In Oregon says:

    Good night Linda. 😀

  59. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: Thanks. When I first saw Dell, I thought it was a contest to win a new computer. 😆

  60. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: all done for tonight. Good night! Pleasant dreams MLCers ❗

  61. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: Did you see the one I posted earlier for
    http:// http://www.united.com for 1 million United Airline miles plus $5K. 1 entry per person be sure to enter that one! 😀 I’ll get you hooked on contesting too.

    It never grows old to WIN ❗ 😀

  62. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: Not yet. A few more to go. I started late, was watching the Hallmark Channel.

    Here’s a contest for you: go to http://www.dell.com before 2/28/11. Contest is for 200,000 American Airlines miles. They will ask for your AAdvantage number. I have numbers for all the major airlines. Good luck! 😀

  63. David In Oregon says:

    Are you done entering contests this evening?

  64. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: 😆

  65. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: “No backs!!” 😆

  66. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: Wow, snow in Oregon. I’d take snow and coolness over humidity any day! The air was so thick and no tradewinds. We won’t have our tradewinds back until next week! But, I had a nice day at the beauty shop where all my ladies friends and I catch up on the latest. We’re talking about my trip to Vegas. That’s something I look forward to.

    Hubby caught my cold so he was pretty miserable today. Pass on don’t pass back. I’m staying far away! 😆

  67. David In Oregon says:

    Hello Linda: Yes, I did have a nice day. 😀 The weather (at least today) was very nice. I’m not sure what this coming week will bring. They say snow levels will drop, so who knows, we might get snow here midweek to the weekend. 😯

  68. LINDA KATO says:

    Good evening DIO! Hope you had a nice day ❗ 😀

  69. David In Oregon says:

    Gooood late evening Linda and everybody!! 😀

  70. 4G says:

    Nice tunes, Ankles! 🙂

    Got home tonight, flipped on the UH baseball game. It was the bottom of the ninth, one out, UH down by one run. What an awesome comeback to win!

  71. LINDA KATO says:

    Ankles: thanks for the music! 😀 Hope it is cool in Arizona!

    DIO: good evening ❗ 😀

  72. LINDA KATO says:

    Seawalker: Give yourself some credit! Physical attributes are not everything. Some people look really pretty but open their mouth and have absolutely nothing nice to say about anyone or anything. Those are the truly UGLY people in the world. You have a kind heart, love your family and are a good person. No matter what you look like physically your goodness shines through ❗

  73. LINDA KATO says:

    Good evening MLCers ❗ 😀 Hope everyone was able to keep cool on this hot humid day in Hawaii ❗ Whew ❗ So happy the sun went down ❗ 😀

    @LK – “Clues: If I remember correctly: went to McKinley, lives in Mililani, is Chinese, losing some hair, has a belly. This could be anyone.”

    Please add to the list: short, smelly, and has a face that only a Mama could love. LOL

    Party tonight. Have a good evening. 🙂

  78. David In Oregon says:

    Hmmmm, Chicken Alice’s chicken sounds good right now. I’ve got to see if I can find a store here that sells the ingredients, so I can make it. 😀

  79. Seawalker says:

    @4G – Heard Chicken Alice is a KB. Not my kind of place. 🙂

  80. Seawalker says:

    Think I told this joke a while back. Bah, nobody remembers anyway!

    Grandpa was a wise old man. When we were young, Grandpa was always cautious of airports. “Seawalker, no run in airport. Many unforeseen objects. Man who running through airport door sideways going to Bangkok. No more kids then.”

    Yes, grandpa was indeed a wise man! LOL

  81. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – Growing up, I used to love reading the Encyclopedia Brown series of books. I think I have a “feel” for the situation. In retrospect, it seems like you should have seen it coming, no? LOL. I surmise that “the ‘biggest’ small world” took a bit of a twist. So, when are you going to be able to taste Chicken Alice chicken again? 😉

    No worries – not trying to reveal your true identity, Batman. 😉 Was just trying to get a feel for how it “all came down”. You know – ‘cause could happen to me, too, right? LOL.

  82. LINDA KATO says:

    Seawalker: ok, anonymous it is! Have a great weekend with your family ❗ 😀

  83. Mark'75 says:

    @Sally: When my teenaged daughter doesn’t agree with something (which happens often) she goes, “bubu,” like a buzzer. Actually sounds like “bubuuu.”

  84. Seawalker says:

    @LK – Nothing to hide. I have 2 young kids that I must protect. Lots of wackos out there on the Internet. Remember, your kids are grown up, mine not (yet). 🙂

  85. LINDA KATO says:

    Meant to type: GOTCHA ❗ 😀

  86. Seawalker says:

    @LK – Nah, still not it. Give TwoFish some credit. That’s one sharp cookie, right Grasshopper? LOL

  87. LINDA KATO says:

    4G: Your guess was better than mine. I think Seawalker went to see TwoFish’s Mustang, and made comments like “hehehe” (which he always does) and TwoFish figured him out ❗ This sounds right ❗ 😀

  88. LINDA KATO says:

    Good morning MLCers ❗ Happy Saturday ❗ 😀

    It’s my beauty shop day ❗ This is the highlight of my month ❗ 😀 I love the pampering ❗ 😀

    It’s a beautiful sunny day in Hawaii ❗ 😀

  89. LINDA KATO says:

    Good night, MLCers ❗ Pleasant dreams ❗ 😀

  90. LINDA KATO says:

    Good night, DIO ❗ 😀

  91. LINDA KATO says:

    4G: I have never in my whole lifetime of driving ever driven over 70MPH. Please don’t do THAT too often ❗ Very scary ❗
    I’m following the recovery of Dr. Theresa Wang, the doctor that was in a car accident with Colt Brennan and his girlfriend on the Big Island. This poor woman is going through so much. Makes you always want to drive carefully at all times ❗ Count your blessings daily! Others are facing unimaginable problems. Follow her progress at: http://www.hulaterri.blogspot.com.

  92. David In Oregon says:

    Good night Speed Racer. 😆

  93. 4G says:

    Okay – getting late for me (even later for you!). Night, DiO!

  94. 4G says:

    @DiO – yup; and that is part of the reason why it felt so awesome. Actually, the H-1 in town is not too bad at 90. But, H-1 out Pearl City way? Not a good idea. I remember a time, many, many years ago – like mid to late 70’s – I decided to try to hit a 100. I hit it, okay – but the car was definitely bouncing up and down due to the uneven grading. Never did that again . . . . 😉 lol.

  95. David In Oregon says:

    Sheesh, I never thought you could go 90mph on H-1. I used to joke with a friend of mine about traffic. With so much traffic commuting into town, I used to ask him not how long it took him to get to town, but what gear he managed to shift into, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th. That was the indication as to how quickly traffic was moving. 😆

  96. 4G says:

    @DiO – LOL!

  97. David In Oregon says:

    4G: Is that the amount of G forces you experienced when you were at 90mph? 😆

  98. 4G says:

    For what it’s worth:

    Had a bit of reality check tonight relative to my earlier statement, “My daughter is a sweetie”.

    Coming up on the anniversary of my sister’s death. I have my daughter this weekend. I decide that it would be good to talk with my daughter about the events of a year ago. One, to reinforce the memory and two, to deal with the memory.

    If memory serves, we are approaching the one-year anniversary of the last tsunami warning for Hawaii. My sister was in the ICU back then. I was at home and remember watching the Big Island newsfeeds at the time the tsunami was supposed to hit – they showed minimal impact. Oahu was about a ½ hour away. So, I figure that the chances are that there will not be a tsunami. Worst case is that I have a ½ hour before something hits. I decide to make my way to the hospital since I can get there in less than a ½ hour.

    I debate whether to cop this story to her about how I get on H-1, westbound, between Kaimuki and town. There must have been only three other cars that I saw on H-1 at the time. I think, “Hmm – go for it?” Then, I think, “Nah, what if you get stopped for going in excess of 30 mph of the speed limit (or whatever the cutoff point is for when you could lose your license for speeding)?” But, no – I go, “WTH? Go for it”. I was able to hit 90 safely on that stretch – it was awesome! I decide to tell the story to my daughter. Then what? LOL. She cops to me how she once was a passenger in a car on a very similar stretch of H-1 doing 90 mph, IN TRAFFIC!

    OMG! Can you say, “Double standard?” LOL. I bit my tongue and just said, “That probably isn’t the best thing to do, especially in traffic . . . .” LOL!

  99. David In Oregon says:

    I have an excuse, I was raised by kanaka maoli. 😆

  100. 4G says:

    @AP – LOL!

    @sally – sorry; I am over 40 and from Hawaii. Never knew that bubu = water.

  101. Aunty Paula says:

    I don’t know why we called water bubu. (pronounced booboo) I asked Rodney why we called it bubu. He said he copied me. Lol

  102. David In Oregon says:

    4G: Yeah, I’m still here. Another truck just came thru here with lights flashing. It too went to the other side of the complex. I don’t see or hear anything so, unless I go wander over there and rubber neck, I guess I’ll never know. My building is clear.

  103. 4G says:

    @DiO – WB!

  104. 4G says:

    @DiO – Geez! More worse, you seemed to go MIA for a while. Assuming you are okay?

  105. David In Oregon says:

    Yeah, I don’t see the truck now though. Think it went to the other side of the complex.

  106. David In Oregon says:

    Oops, wrong browser window.

  107. 4G says:

    @AP – I get “wawa = water”, but “bubu = wawa”? Huh?

    Bubu is pronounced booboo?

  108. LINDA KATO says:

    Night, 4G ❗

  109. 4G says:

    @DiO – fire truck? That can’t be good . . . . 🙁

  110. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: what ❓ Excitement in Oregon ❓

  111. LINDA KATO says:

    4G: nice talking with you. I’m going to enter contests for about an hour. Good night! Take care of yourself! 😀

  112. Aunty Paula says:

    bubu=wawa=water

    But Rod used to call the pacifier a wawa too.

  113. David In Oregon says:

    Uh oh, fire truck is here…..

  114. LINDA KATO says:

    Seawalker: guess we will just have to meet you at a party one day ❗ Good night ❗ 😀

  115. 4G says:

    @LK – LOL; I’m glad you said it (“he outted you . . .”). I was going to say it, but couldn’t bring myself to do it. LOL!

  116. Seawalker says:

    @LK – No, I did not give away anything. Gotta have class or like me, a work-in-progress.

  117. LINDA KATO says:

    Seawalker: you keeping us hanging just like sally ❗

    Good night, Seawalker ❗

  118. Seawalker says:

    @4G – I asked her not to say. Sorry!

  119. David In Oregon says:

    Seawalker: No, I eat at that “other” Chinese restaurant, then stay up all night with heartburn, gas, and other stuff. 😆

  120. LINDA KATO says:

    TwoFish: How did you figure out Seawalker’s identity ❓

    Tell, he spilled the beans about you ❗ 😆

  121. Seawalker says:

    Okay guys and gals, you carry on. We’re pushing entry 300. Let’s give that other blog a run for it’s money. Good night, and once again, good night to all you lurkers!

  122. 4G says:

    I guess we just gotta ask TwoFish then, huh? LOL.

  123. Seawalker says:

    @DiO – You mean you eat Calgon to stay awake?!?! Hate to say it, but that’s weird, man, really weird! LOL

  124. Seawalker says:

    @LK – Good guess! But, no. Can’t say it… sorry!

  125. David In Oregon says:

    Seawalker: To use an oft used phrase, “ancient Chinese secret….” 😆

  126. 4G says:

    Ahhh – good guess, LK!

  127. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – LOL! YES!! 😉

  128. Seawalker says:

    @DiO – Hey, just curious. It must be late on your side of the world (Oregon). How the heck do you do it?

  129. LINDA KATO says:

    Seawalker: If TwoFish were the clerk at the flower shop that you ordered flowers at for your wife for Valentine’s Day! Was that it ❓

  130. David In Oregon says:

    Seawalker: yeah, 4G can marry you. Now, when will the reception be at Jack’s? 😆

  131. 4G says:

    @LK – yes, I agree with you. That is what I meant when I mentioned child support payments . . . . I do have my daughter. That could, debatedly (LOL), be considered an asset. LOL.

    Nah, my daughter is a sweetie. Then again, I am her dad . . . . 😉 LOL

  132. Seawalker says:

    @4G – Keep on truckin’, man. You doing the right thing. And to commit your weekends to your daughter…will you marry me? Not!

  133. LINDA KATO says:

    Seawalker: I can only imagine ❗ 😯 😀

  134. LINDA KATO says:

    4G: my first daughter didn’t like living with me, too many rules and too many children (3) so during her Junior year in high school she went to live with her Dad and I had to PAY him child support! So been there, done that! Tell yourself, “this too shall pass and the best is yet to come!” That daughter went on to become a very successful student, college student, and makes a good living today. I’d say that my child support for her was “money well spent!” 😀

  135. David In Oregon says:

    Seawalker: Yeah, and don’t forget, there’s a thing called “six pack abs.” Of course, there’s the ‘good’ kine, and da bad kine. 😆

  136. Seawalker says:

    @DiO – Kim Kardashian and J Lo make their living from having a fabulous booty! Don’t knock it. LOL

  137. 4G says:

    @LK – yes, you are right. The other way that I think of it is, “Oh, it’s because of child support payments . . . ” 😉

  138. LINDA KATO says:

    Seawalker: I wondered how TwoFish figured out who you were! Hubby and I were talking about you at Zippy’s tonight.

    Clues: If I remember correctly: went to McKinley, lives in Mililani, is Chinese, losing some hair, has a belly. This could be anyone.

    How in the world did TwoFish guess your identity ❓

  139. LINDA KATO says:

    4G and DIO: You have ALL of your friends on this MLC blog ❗ I’d say THAT is priceless ❗ And, you are RICH indeed ❗ 😀

  140. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – yikes! But, I gotta admit, only makes me more curious! 😉

  141. Seawalker says:

    Hey 4G, asset poor and cash poor, eh? Try being in my position… a Pake!

  142. David In Oregon says:

    If you drop the last two letters in asset, you have an idea of what I got in my account. 😆

  143. Seawalker says:

    You go first, LK. As for me, 4G, my boy, loose lips sink ships…

    Believe me, talk about caught me with my pants down!

  144. 4G says:

    Hey! No fair! I’m asset poor and cash flow poor! 🙁 LOL.

  145. Keoni says:

    @Seawalker I try, brah, I try! 😀

  146. 4G says:

    @LK and @Seawalker – ‘kay, now I’m curious. How is it that Seawalker and TwoFish meet IRL. Because of the Mustang?

  147. Seawalker says:

    @LK – We’re all in the same boat. When it comes to investing or big-ticket items, always think ROI (return on investment) or PBP (payback period). Start with a niche, end with riches! 🙂

  148. David In Oregon says:

    tune in next week for the conclusion of “what does bubu mean” only on your oldies station, K-MLC. 😆

  149. LINDA KATO says:

    Ankles: good night!

    sally: where are you? Went to bed and left us hanging ❓

    Tell already ❗

  150. LINDA KATO says:

    Seawalker: Heard the saying “we’re asset rich but cash flow poor?” That’s us. Our money is tied up everywhere. Only enough liquid cash to get by each month. Believe me, if I were rich like Oprah, I’d have written a check to TwoFish by now!

  151. ankleBYTERS says:

    LK:

    Ok, we’ll make sure it’s not the week you’re gone.

    Seawalker:

    I’ll throw in a set of brand new Sumitomo tires that I have in sitting in my garage ❗

    Time to hit the recliner and have the TV watch me sleep….

    Guud night….

  152. David In Oregon says:

    Seawalker: I would if I could, but with my situation right now, all I can chip in is a few shushu firecrackers, some bubu, and not much else. 😆

  153. Seawalker says:

    @Keoni – TY. When in doubt, charm the women! You good sport buggah!

  154. Seawalker says:

    @LK – I have a suggestion. Let’s chip in and get that pony running. Throw in a 302 Boss with a Hurst shifter. We sell the car. Let TwoFish keep 50 percent of the profits. And we’ll use the other 50 percent for MLC party!

  155. Keoni says:

    @Seawalker I’d never heard that word before tonight and was clueless! So, I googled it and the only thing that made sense was that it’s slang for an attractive woman. But I don’t know if that’s right. What about it, Sally, close?

  156. Seawalker says:

    @DiO – LOL! I know why. It’s not because of the tight jeans they’re wearing. It’s because they don’t know who Wun Hung Lo is!

  157. LINDA KATO says:

    ankles: wow! That’s a long trip. Don’t have a TRIAD party the last week of April since I’ll be in Vegas that week ❗ 😀

  158. LINDA KATO says:

    sally: I asked hubby who is 6 years older than me and he doesn’t know what “bubu” means. Give us more clues.

  159. LINDA KATO says:

    TwoFish: FYI, kidney cars towed my son’s inoperable Honda away when he donated it to them at no cost to my son.

  160. ankleBYTERS says:

    Seawalker:

    Tentatively arriving on 4/6 and leaving 5/4….assuming I can telecommute for two weeks while there.

  161. David In Oregon says:

    Seawalker: That’s why cowboys walk bowlegged. 😆

  162. David In Oregon says:

    C0hiba: To answer your question, no, I haven’t gone to Univ. of OR’s facilities. I imagine it has to be nice though, since a good portion of their stuff is funded by Mr. Nike himself, Phil Knight.

  163. 4G says:

    Okay, now where sally went? Jus’ leave us hanging . . . . 🙁 lol.

    Anyone know the final disposition of TwoFish’s Mustang? Sad to think of it ending up in a boneyard . . . .

  164. Seawalker says:

    @ankles – You still game in April? Triad party? I know, Rod’s call…

  165. Seawalker says:

    @4G – If I’m not mistaken, Diagnostic Labs took over that spot. All that grease and msg from Tasty’s is what brings the customers to DL. LOL

  166. ankleBYTERS says:

    Seawalker:

    I’m going to have to move to closer time zone….maybe Alaska ….more action at this time of the evening on here ❗ 😆

    I peek in on the psycho blog once in a while….met a few AZ peeps on there. We may have a get together here.

  167. Kage says:

    @seawalker- 🙂

    Good night all.

    I will check back tomorrow to see if sally finds someone else that knows about bubu.
    😉

  168. Seawalker says:

    @DiO – But do you know why Wun Hung Lo? Because, just like kabonkers, if it was equal distance, then it would be too uncomfortable! 🙂

  169. Seawalker says:

    I stand corrected, Kage. You qualify! 🙂

  170. Kage says:

    pushing mid 40s

  171. Seawalker says:

    @Kage – A young 40 or an 40ish? Makes a big difference.

  172. David In Oregon says:

    Seawalker: Eh, at least you guys didn’t have any funny restaurant name. Over in Portland, there’s Hung Far Low. For decades it was in Chinatown (Downtown), now it is over in SE Portland.

    http://www.oregonlive.com/news/oregonian/anna_griffin/index.ssf/2010/08/restoration_of_portlands_hung.html

  173. Kage says:

    @Seawalker – haha. *fist bump*

  174. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – in the eight or so years that we lived that close to Tasty Chop Suey, I think we ate there like once or twice. Takeout orders, I believe, could be counted on one hand . . . . 😉

  175. Kage says:

    oh well, my Sis’s connection with Masako did not pan.

  176. Seawalker says:

    Hey Keoni, a little help please with the word “bubu”. We’re not looking for the oldest, but the wisest! *fist bump*

  177. Kage says:

    I am over 40 and have not heard it used that way. I heard of talking bubbles. Or maybe it was bubu and I am losing my hearing.

  178. Seawalker says:

    DiO – The word “Tasty” is a big misnomer. Whereas, “Jack’s” stands for all China-Jacks! Pakes to the maximum! Draw your conclusions, people. 🙂

  179. sally says:

    NO Wayyys! If anyone would know it would be LINDA KATO!

    Come on gang!

  180. 4G says:

    Memories of spelling bees –

    @sally, can you use it in a sentence, please? LOL.

  181. David In Oregon says:

    Seawalker: So what, is there going to be an Iron Chef showdown? Jack’s vs Tasty…. 😀

  182. Kage says:

    @sally – bubu is the nick name of the short kid down the street because he looked like Yogi’s little friend.

  183. Seawalker says:

    @sally – Since I’m the one with young kids, a bubu is what you made in your pupu. A bubu could be a mistake, but we use that terminology as in “do do”. Remember JJ in Good Times? Fufu in your juju, in your shu-shu.

  184. Seawalker says:

    @ankles – Yes, I did. It’s that buggah who hurt my feelings. Never! Out with the old, in with the new… LOL

  185. LINDA KATO says:

    sally: my other guess is the same as Aunty Paula, otherwise, I’m clueless.

  186. 4G says:

    @sally – LOL. Then I have no clue. Sorry!

  187. ankleBYTERS says:

    Seawalker:

    You rang???? 🙂

  188. Aunty Paula says:

    bubu=wawa?

  189. David In Oregon says:

    ruh roh sarry. methinks folks are going to go down the path I went down. 😆

    In all honesty, I’ve never heard the word with that meaning.

  190. sally says:

    GAHHHH!

    An owee is a booboo.
    Yogi’s pal is BooBoo.
    I’m talking bubu.

  191. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – LOL @ ESP. I asked how you concluded that; I didn’t say it was a correct conclusion. LOL 😉

    @AP and @Seawalker – a few things you may or may not know (and may or may not care) about Mr. M.

    The first school he taught at was Kawananakoa Interrmediate. He taught at quite a few schools after that first teaching job. He would end up eventually retiring from Kawananakoa. Talk about “full circle”, huh? LOL.

    Since you both went to McKinley, he also taught at McKinley. This must have been in the early to mid 60’s.

    The schools that he taught at included elementary, intermediate and high schools. I believe that the only grade level he did not teach was kindergarten.

  192. David In Oregon says:

    ooooooh, the big test. Tonight’s Jeopardy answer is…

  193. LINDA KATO says:

    sally: I know what you mean but I’ve never seen it spelled that way. How about booboo?

  194. 4G says:

    Oops; I made a few bubus in my last entry . . . . 😳

  195. 4G says:

    @sally – I know what bubu means. Other people don’t? LOL. I thought the standard response when an toddler has small injury is, “Aww-you have a little bubu”????

  196. sally says:

    Calling all MLCers: asking for help. I posted this on FB, geeeeez.

    “This is just a little test. How many of you out there know what I mean when I say bubu? Cuz lately I’ve been having a lot of “what dat?”s when I say it. Granted, it’s mostly peeps under 40yrs old but still… c’mon. If you grew up in Hawaii you gotta know bubu.”

  197. Seawalker says:

    @4G – Just a guess. @Kathi’s favorite teacher at McKinley was MLC. Her husband also taught at McKInley. So I made that assumption, too. Nah, I just got e.s.p. LOL

  198. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – LOL! Sorry – the location of my house is not necessarily indicative of my preference of Chinese restaurants! 😉

  199. Seawalker says:

    Right, ankles?

  200. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – BTW, how did you conclude that both of my parents were school teachers?

  201. Seawalker says:

    And besides, that clown, @Chawan parent’s owned that joint. That’s the buggah who razzed me big-time in another blog. LOL

  202. Seawalker says:

    @4G – Egads, the “T” word, as in Tasty Chop Suey. Don’t mean to be biased, but, Jack’s Chop Suey rule! LOL

  203. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – TY! Quite a compliment coming from you.

    @AP and @Seawalker – one of the recent topics here was the ’74 gas shortage. My dad was still at Kawananakoa at the time. We were living right below Tasty Chop Suey (around the corner of School and Gulick). During the time of the shortage, my dad actually used my bike to bike it to and from work! At the time, I was at Farrington – pretty much right down Gulick and a few blocks over Diamond Head. Me? I was driving to school! LOL.

  204. Seawalker says:

    DiO – Knowing all the jokes I make about Prof. F, I wouldn’t doubt if I get hit for slander. You guys have to talk to him IRL. Funny as heck. And guess what? His gut is bigger than mine… LOL.

    @4G – No wonder you write so well. It would have done me good to have parents as DOE teachers. Give your dad a hug when you see him. Right, LK?

    @Masako – When are you and Snow going to tell us the “real” stories of the sorority? Nah, my wife belonged to a sorority too. We might go to N.H.H.K. for Pastor Aaron one of these days. Just ran into a sorority girl at Costco tonight. I saw her make side eyes… hehehe. Or was it the stink-eye? 🙂

  205. 4G says:

    @AP (February 18th, 2011 at 4:55 pm) – It is certainly a small world! 😉 Yup, that certainly sounds like my dad. I remember him always wearing a tie to work, except maybe for Aloha Fridays. And yes, short-sleeves. It’s too bad you didn’t say hello to him when you saw him at Foodland. Many of his former students have told me that he was a really good teacher.

    Several years ago at School Street Foodland – my sister’s office was right down Liliha Street from that Foodland. He and my mom would often visit my sister at her office and also help out with the business. It is likely that he was sent on an errand to that Foodland when you saw him.

    It’s too funny that you mention that he was wearing a Jackie’s Travel T-shirt – and just how do you even remember that much of a detail? LOL. Many years ago, when he and my mom retired and Jackie’s was still around, they were running tours to Vegas with Jackie’s. They must have been going to Vegas at least monthly, if not more often. They still go to Vegas pretty often and guess where they stay? Who knows, you and Rod might run into them in Vegas! LOL.

    @Seawalker – I had never heard about the Monkey MM nickname before you mentioned it (I recall that you mentioned it when we first talked about you going to Kawananakoa).

  206. David In Oregon says:

    Wow, now we got the name dropping of PHNSY folks. I never realized it, but I had family that worked in 950 group: X67, X95, X51. Most of the people I knew was from X67.

  207. Seawalker says:

    @DiO – Ting ting fat choy to you! Sum yung punk… LOL 🙂

  208. Masako says:

    B@Mike in Waipio – His initials are BT I think he might be able to figure out who I am.

  209. LINDA KATO says:

    Almost time for our dinner at Zippy’s ❗ 😀 Food makes me very happy ❗ 😀

    Have a great evening MLCers ❗ 😀

  210. Seawalker says:

    @4G – Your daddy was my homeroom teacher for 8th grade. Question, why was his nickname Monkey M.M.? That joke was amongst us Koans anyway… LOL. Please tell him we’re cyber buddies.

    He might remember me. When we got assigned for homework, problems 1to 42, evens only, I was always the wise-guy who asked why not 1to 48, evens only. Numbers 43 to 48 were the brain-teaser questions. Still bragging after all these years…

  211. LINDA KATO says:

    Keoni: on tonight’s draw, only 2 of my numbers were picked. Translation, no win tonight. I have 2 more chances, next Tuesday and next Friday. Fingers crossed ❗ 😀

  212. Seawalker says:

    @AP – Hey, my comment at 2/16 @11:23 forgot to read LOL. Please no be mad. If so, gomenasai!

    ***
    Well, whop my jaws. Guess who I ran into today? My very first fellow blogger. Haven’t been to any Triads, so this is a first. “Are you Seawalker?” So I said, “yah, why? Who you?” I’m TWOFISH.

  213. David In Oregon says:

    ankles: Petabyte? Sheesh. I can just imagine the mesage on the screen, “Please insert disk 39,843 and press Enter to continue…”

    😛

  214. LINDA KATO says:

    C0hiba & MLCers: go to: http://www.united.com before 5/31/2011 to enter in the contest at United Airlines to win 1 million United Mileage Plus miles plus $5K cash. One entry per person.

    Ok that’s my fun contest for this weekend for all of you. I already entered this one ❗ 😀

  215. LINDA KATO says:

    C0hiba: was the Foodland/Hawaiian Air contest separate from the Hawaiian Air contest where 100,000 miles were given away? I don’t know about any other contest.

  216. LINDA KATO says:

    C0hiba: No but ankles, reported a woman from Washington won it. Check prior post.

  217. C0hiba says:

    @LK, did you see any results from the Foodland/Hawaiian Air contest?

  218. C0hiba says:

    @DIO, good evening.
    Hawaii is playing Oregon (ranked #9) in baseball tonight. Have you been to the facility? All the news reports say that it’s so great, better than some Triple A baseball facilities.

  219. C0hiba says:

    @sally, yeah, I remember running into Bruce at HNL airport telling me that they played at an event. Not sure if the guy in the spandex is still playing with them, he’s not pictured with them. Kinda reminds me of the Filipino guy that was the lead singer for Journey, taking S. Perry’s place.

  220. Aunty Paula says:

    As Ocean Lover described, finding out what happened to my kid-time best friend was thrilling! She moved before 6th grade, but we corresponded (I used a fountain pen too) through high school, and even exchanged graduation pictures. Then life happened and we lost touch.

    Fast-forward about thirty years and Rod wants to start a blog. I was skeptical, but he did it anyway. Waddayouknow, we met a whole bunch of great people and made fantastic friends! and I found Ocean Hater again. 🙂

  221. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: Good evening ❗ 😀

  222. sally says:

    I think Mid Life Crisis (the band) is Annie Yonashiro’s classmates… or friends, at very least. They played at one of the early GiveLive Fundraisers in HNL. They’re good. What I remembered most was the guy who wore the funky printed spandex leggings. Was hard to watch at first but his personality pulled it off and it was a great gig!

  223. David In Oregon says:

    Good evening everybody! 🙂

  224. C0hiba says:

    @Rod, I just noticed this. The Hilo musicians you feature above, Bruce and Dougie belong to a musical group called “Mid Life Crisis”.
    Small world huh?

  225. sally says:

    @Mike in Waipio: I don’t know all that detail about PHNS shops n codes. My brother is N.Y. in shop 56. That’s all I know. Don’t know if he still does but he taught the trade at HCC night school.

    Sound familiar?

  226. Aunty Paula says:

    @4G: Mr. M is your dad? He was one of my favorite teachers! I had him in 7th grade. I think I saw him a few years ago at the School Street Foodland. He was wearing a Jackie’s Travel t- shirt. I remember he wore shirt-sleeves and a tie for school. I wanted to say hi to him. I wish I did. If I see him again, I will. Small world…

    TwoFish:

    If it was a Camaro, my BIL might have been interested 🙂

    LK:

    It’s the keyboard for my old desktop PC. Time to retire it 🙂

  232. LINDA KATO says:

    TwoFish: I hope someone will want to restore this old car by today rather than it going to a scrap metal yard! Good luck ❗

  233. TwoFish says:

    @LK Thank you. It still looks like the classic muscle car is going to scrap metal heaven.

  234. LINDA KATO says:

    TwoFish: Great ❗ Glad you were able to talk to him. He’s a really nice guy! I have great neighbors and friends on this blog ❗ 😀

  235. TwoFish says:

    LK – he’s checking around for me. He may swing by to look it.

  236. LINDA KATO says:

    Ankles: You can buy a NEW keypad. We bought a new keypad for our daughter’s laptop since I overused too many keys on that laptop. The new keypad works like a charm ❗ 😀

  237. LINDA KATO says:

    TwoFish: If my neighbor was not interested in your car, perhaps you could donate it to Kidney cars. We donated a Camry to them in 2010. You can take it as a tax deduction for 2011. It was nice talking with you. Good luck ❗ 😀

  238. LINDA KATO says:

    Keoni: Yes, 3 more drawings. There is a drawing tonight at 6PM. Hubby told me he will sell some Hawaiian Electric stocks for our spending money. What a sweetheart ❗ 😀

  239. TwoFish says:

    @Ankles – Rusty 1968 Mustang 2-door hardtop, auto, mag wheels, 2nd owner. Moving out and I can’t take it.

  240. TwoFish says:

    @Ankles – 1968 Mustang 2-door hardtop, auto, mag wheels, 2nd owner. Moving out and I can’t take it.

  242. ankleBYTERS says:

    TwoFish:

    Not in HI…several up here that do restorations. What’s the classic car?

  243. ankleBYTERS says:

    Keoni:

    The keyboard is about 5 years old 🙂 I must have a bad batch of keypads ❗

  244. TwoFish says:

    Cuz mine needs a new home now, as in tomorrow – or I call the tow guy who takes it to the scrap metal yard.

  245. Masako says:

    @Mike In Waipio – I know someone who works in 981

  246. TwoFish says:

    hey y’all – with all this talk about degrees of separation, doesn’t anyone besides LK know someone who likes restoring classic muscle cars?

  247. Keoni says:

    @Ankles How old IS your computer??? Are you using a keyboard from the ’40s?? 😯

  248. Keoni says:

    @LK Don’t give up on that spending money yet! Don’t you still have a couple drawings on that lottery ticket?

  249. TwoFish says:

    @LK please standby

  250. TwoFish says:

    @LK – I’m checking with him now. Do you have a phone number to contact you at too? Pls give to him.

  251. M says:

    Sally, I hope you are feeling better 🙂

  252. Mike in Waipio says:

    @sally (2/17; 11:54 am): We have designations for shops and codes. I work in Facilities Engineering (Code 980). I’ve worked with some nuclear Shop 56 people; not too many non-nuclear Shop 56 people. Which is your brother’s group?

  253. LINDA KATO says:

    Ankles: You’re right more is going to principal now than to interest at 5 percent and in a few more years we’ll be mortgage free ❗ Yay ❗ 😀

  254. ankleBYTERS says:

    LK:

    Depending on where you are in years, into your home mortgage, that could make a difference too.

  255. ankleBYTERS says:

    4G:

    My bad, typo – should have been RSTS/E . I also need a new keyboard….the letters on the following keys are worn off:

    E, R, Y, O, D, H, L, N, B

    DiO:

    We use to have a facility management agreement with profs on campus to maintain their VAXes for them. We don’t do that any more as we haven’t had a site license for years.

    I’ll throw this in just to give us a little advertising 🙂

    ASU is involved with the LROC (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera) with its multi petatbytes of storage…imagine how many floppy disks that would fill 😯

    http://lroc.sese.asu.edu/index.html

    Also with the Mars Odyssey & THEMIS (thermal emission imaging system) project. I wish I were just starting college again…this is a neat field to be in.

  256. M says:

    Met a lot of the bloggers here IRL at the Triad Pah-tays. Can’t wait for the next one.

  257. M says:

    Hello MLCers!
    NKHEA and I made the connection on this blog when I mentioned that I knew someone that was the undefeated chug-ga-lug beer champ at the old Ranch House in Aina Hina and he knew who I was talking about and we figured each other out. I hung out with NKHEA since the 7th grade and we still keep in touch and even SUP together.

  258. LINDA KATO says:

    TwoFish: Don’t know if claiming zero and still having to pay MORE taxes at tax time is “good news” but okay, at least our income remained the same even with less days at work. Next year the formula changes entirely since we’re both retired now.

    TwoFish: Ask Rod to give you my email address. Our neighbor’s hobby is fixing up “classic cars”. He may want to talk to you about your classic car.

  259. Kage says:

    @Masako – she works for the same “organization” as you, different location, different type of work.

    🙂 I really do not want to give too much specifics here. If I remember tonight I will email you.

  260. TwoFish says:

    Wow @LK, good for you!

  261. LINDA KATO says:

    Good morning everyone, more fun stories ❗ 😀

    Anyone done with their taxes yet? Hubby finished our Federal tax return and we have to pay ❗ I was in shock ❗ 😯 This was his first full year of retirement pay, I worked 3 months LESS than the prior year, I was furloughed for 7 months in 2010 ($500 less per month) and we made the same amount of money as the prior year. How did THAT happen ❓ Oh well, I already booked our trip to Vegas. We’ll just go to eat and look around this time, no spendng money ❗ 😆

  262. Masako says:

    Another interesting one is that one day my coworker was talking about his wife’s ex husband and I swore I heard the name and before. I realized that it was Rod’s brother.

  263. Masako says:

    They are so many connections made from this and the other Advertiser Blog. Snow and I are sorority sisters and the connection was made because M talked about his puka shell necklace.

  264. Masako says:

    Good Morning!
    @Kage – Now you really got me thinking…..

  265. C0hiba says:

    @LK, I don’t really work on roofs. There a concert on Sunday at our venue, the group wanted internet access in their working area. Each time this happens, we need to setup a antenna to shoot it to their work area. Only way to do it is from the roof top of one of our buildings. Problem is, it looks terrible on the building so we put it up and take it down each time.

    @4G, I’ll get back to you on a 74 Gov social club. Gotta run (Upon the roof……)

  266. Kage says:

    How could I forget this one.

    I finally decided to go to a get together of the triad. Actually it was the triad minus BL.

    I met Masako and M there. After a bit of an introduction, where I live, work, etc, they asked me if I knew their daughter. She and I worked in the same department when she was a student. They went home and told her they met me and she remembered me too.

  267. Kage says:

    Good Morning.

    @Masako – I was going to mention it to you the next time we see each other. She works in Wahiawa.

  268. Ocean Lover says:

    Oh man…..so busy this week just saw this.

    First TRIAD party – I figure I HAD to go as I had to show my appreciation to Queenie, BL, and Rod for their blogs which put a smile on my face each day. I walk into the room and there’s SNOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! Never thought that she was someone I know. I meet Banana and am immediately REPULSED by his horrible dental hygiene regimen or lack thereof. Talk to him a bit and like Rod I also know his cousin CG. Rod, one day I gotta walk by during lunch hour and say “Hi” to her as I haven’t seen her in almost 30 years!

    Aunty Paula…………such a sweet person and I’ve talked to her several times….and then one day Ocean Hater’s with me and I introduce her to Aunty Paula. AFTER WE DEPART Aunty Paula realizes that Ocean Hater was her best friend “small kid time”.
    No worry Aunty P…….she’s in a “better place”…….she’s married to “moi”. 😉

    Ynaku….Opso……NKHEA……I don’t know those buggahs from before but NOW….they are like old time friends.

    And with that, I start my day thinking about how special life can be with good friends and shared experiences.

    OL…………great post Rod!

  269. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – LOL @ “punch in the nose”. Obviously back in the day when the VPs still had paddles in their offices. Sounds like him . . . . 😉

  270. Seawalker says:

    @4G – It must be Mr. M. His favorite line used to be, “you want a punch in the nose”? Have a good day everyone.

  271. TwoFish says:

    Anyone interested in purchasing my full-sized bed (mattress/spring, frame)? I need it gone today/tomorrow. Also, have classic car that needs work avail – before it goes to the metal scrap.

  272. 4G says:

    @AP and @TwoFish: Math.

    Oh – DUH! @Seawalker and now @AP, too. I don’t know why I didn’t make this connection sooner. My cousin is McKinley, ’75.

  273. LINDA KATO says:

    I’m almost done with my contests for tonight!

    Good morning MLCers ❗ Happy Aloha Friday ❗ 😀

  274. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: I know what you mean! Someday when I’m really rich, I’ll run my A/C on all humid days!

  275. David In Oregon says:

    I don’t blame you for not liking the humidity. I’ve lived out here for so many years now, that when I travel back to the islands, humidity, even on a good day, takes a toll on me. From the moment I walk of the plane at the airport, and for at least a while afterward, I feel like I’m breathing through a wet towel.

  276. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: Yeah, it does get very windy here. After all these years, I’m almost used to it. When I first moved to this part of the metro area, I didn’t have a clue what was happening. I’d sit at the stoplight in my car, and think something was wrong with my car, since it was shaking. I’d sit at work, look out one of the windows, and think there was something wrong with my eyesight, only to realize that the winds were making the windows shake back and forth. It’s like living in a fun house!!! 😛

  277. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: Wow! That’s windy! Sounds cooler than here. It has been so humid recently, we eat at Zippy’s a lot just so I can sit in their free air conditioning and drink lots of ice water or iced tea ❗

  278. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: Believe me, it’s like that a lot around here. I sometimes feel like I’m living at the Pali Lookout. It’s gotten to the point where if wind speeds are less than 20mph, I don’t even notice it anymore. If I can sit in my car or the city bus at a stoplight, and not have the vehicle sway back and forth due to the winds, I don’t consider it to be a windy day.

  279. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: sounds as though the winds are really strong over there. It’s gets like that only once in awhile over here.

  280. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: That’s fantastic. In my neighborhood, you need a good roof. Winds blow so strongly out here during Winter months, that it is not surprising to see roof shingles all over the place: on the ground, on your car, on trees, etc.

  281. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: It’s going to be a real nice roof with brand new Energy Star shingles. The color is light blue/white to reflect the sun. This roof comes w/a free solar fan like the other 2, I had installed a few months ago and ridge vents on the roof’s peak. Our home should be even cooler without the A/C on! It just started raining kinda hard right now. I hope the patched roof does not leak some more. We have 6 buckets in the attic, just in case. Our roofing co. will be calling me soon with a definite date for one day this month. 😀

  282. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: Glad you’re getting a roof soon.

  283. LINDA KATO says:

    Guess I didn’t miss too much during the movie! If you want an edge of your seat action movie, watch the movie “Unstoppable” ❗

    C0hiba: so you work on a roof! Signed our contract for our brand new “Energy Star” roof to be installed ASAP with a 30 year shingle. This business sure is busy these days.

  284. Aunty Paula says:

    @TwoFish: Mr. O taught English. They’re talking about Mr. F, the Social Studies teacher. I remember hearing about that back then

    @4G: What subject did your dad teach?

  285. 4G says:

    I suppose that I could ask my cousin, but that would be a pretty awkward conversation, no?

    Yes, ’74 Gov, here.

  286. 4G says:

    Sorry bout that last – to continue –

  287. 4G says:

    @C0hiba – yeah, not too much was digital way back then. LOL – supp

  288. C0hiba says:

    @4G, I tried googleing to find something on it, but think too long ago.
    There was a justified reason (obviously not to all and did not stand up in court), but just can’t remember.
    R U 74 Gov?

  289. 4G says:

    @C0hiba – dunno about the justification, but as I was thinking more about the controversial “incident”, it came to me that I seem to recall a bit of a family “broo hah hah” at the time. Then, I recalled – it was also because my cousin testified in favor of the defendant (the teacher) during the trial . . . .

  290. C0hiba says:

    Woah!. You guys talking about porn, woke me up. lol
    Nah, I just got home, had to have a beer or 2 to unwind after my sweaty day.
    Ok, so I recall that incident. But didn’t the teacher have some kine of justification for doing that? I no can remember the details but thought he was trying to teach something to the students.
    No?
    Coshiba made corned beef hash with fresh corned beef and mixed sweet potatoes. I made two easy over eggs. Eating while blogging. Multi tasking.

  291. TwoFish says:

    @Seawalker – that teacher have a small afro, and thin lanky guy? Mr. O?

  292. 4G says:

    @DiO – 😉

  293. 4G says:

    Night, Seawalker – I am happy that I could validate your memory . . . . 😉

    Now, will someone validate mine? LOL – J/K!

  294. David In Oregon says:

    4G: We stopped talking about VAX sometime ago…. 😛

  295. Seawalker says:

    @4G – It was the same year that I was in his class when he got busted. He should be shot for doing something so outrageous like that. But time heal all wounds, but memories last a lifetime. Gotta run. Bust okole tomorrow. Laters.

  296. 4G says:

    LOL – I guess that I should have known better. The angle brackets are an (X)HTML thing . . . .

  297. 4G says:

    OK – now I know that it was not me!

    @Seawalker – meant to say “hit (left angle bracket) send (right angle bracket)”. Geez – ain’t computers wonderful?

    LOL

  298. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – LOL! Darn – two same mistakes in a row! Meant “hit “

  299. 4G says:

    @LK – cool; no prob. TY!

  300. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – sorry that I didn’t respond the first time you asked about this. I recall that this subject has come up before.

    H3ll! I don’t need to ask my father about that incident. I am pretty sure that he will recall it. He is a lot older now, so maybe not so much – but, I can tell you that I remember the incident. If memory serves, it was either my mom or dad that brought it up. I know that my dad was aware of it, at the time. I don’t recall the specific subject area (i.e., social studies) that the teacher taught, but I know of a Kawananakoa teacher that was accused of and subsequently convicted of showing “blue” (or was it “Mickey Mouse”) movies to intermediate school students. If I am recalling correctly, I believe that more significant charges were also alleged at the time (um, can you say catholic priest? 😉 ) I don’t think that the male teacher was ever convicted of the more significant charges, though. I also have a remembrance of this because a male cousin of mine was also a student of this teacher at the time of the incident. Sorry; I could never bring myself to ask my cousin about the incident/allegations . . . .

  301. Seawalker says:

    Oh, my bad. BRB = be right back! 🙂

  302. Seawalker says:

    @4G – You gotta say “excuse me” when you burp. Not “hit”. LOL

  303. LINDA KATO says:

    Gonna watch a movie now called “Unstoppable” with Denzel Washington. Will check back in 2 hours!

  304. LINDA KATO says:

    4G: I only gave sally your name and email. You can provide more if she requests it.

  305. 4G says:

    Dern – “hit ” lol BRB.

  306. 4G says:

    @Seawalker – sorry, I guess I forgot to hit on my last message. I asked you to hold on while I booted my PC. Am on PC now an am in process of generating a response now . . . .

  307. Seawalker says:

    @4G – Hey, if you’re father was my teacher in intermediate school, he would surely remember the social studies teacher who got busted and expelled for showing pornographic movies. I remember asking you once. But could you check with Dad again? Surely, somebody besides me remember this back in the 70’s. And the nerve of the that social studies teacher! Where was I when the flick was playing? LOL

  308. 4G says:

    @LK – LOL, I know that you are trustworthy. FYI, though, sally only asked for name . . . . 😉

  309. LINDA KATO says:

    sally: ok, check your email. The secret about 4G has been revealed ❗ 😀

  310. David In Oregon says:

    Keoni: I guess that means your first watch was a sundial eh? 😆

  311. LINDA KATO says:

    4G: Yes, I still have your full name, first and last name, email and mailing address. I can keep a secret! Will share with sally. I have her email since you ok’d it. 😀

  312. Masako says:

    @Kage – Who is your sister?

  313. Keoni says:

    Eh, DiO, nah, da chisels and tablets didn’t come along until long after I wen grad! 😯 😆

  314. David In Oregon says:

    Keoni: As long you don’t tell me your first writing assignment as a kid in school was using chisels and clay tablets. That would be Supa-MLC. 😆

  315. TwoFish says:

    @Keoni I remember learning about cuneiform in 4th grade, I think.

  316. Keoni says:

    @DiO, Actually, the feather quill is quite advanced considering we could still be using chisels and clay tablets writing in cuneiform.

  317. 4G says:

    @TwoFish – re: “Halcion”.

    LOL – I was like, “Whoa, bruddah – Farrington, here . . . . Huh?” Then I looked it up – now I get it. 😉 LOL.

  318. 4G says:

    @DiO – I know what you mean. 🙂

  319. TwoFish says:

    Halcion days?

  320. 4G says:

    @sally – Ahhh, I think I see the source of confusion now. My February 17th, 2011 at 7:59 pm post should have read:

    Dang, @DiO – I thought she just meant weirdo back then – if she meant weirdo now, nevermind! LOL!

  321. David In Oregon says:

    4G: I don’t know IT, never worked in IT, haven’t seen IT, haven’t heard IT, don’t want to speak about IT, and hope I never step in IT… 😆

    Actually I’ve worked in semiconductor manufacturing, if you can understand what that means.

  322. 4G says:

    @DiO – by “techie”, I meant work in the IT field. Re: your last comment – I was gonna say, “eh, wait a minute, already get one hemajang . . .” 😉 Hemajang hasn’t posted in a while, yeah?

  323. 4G says:

    @DiO and @sally – LOL!

  324. David In Oregon says:

    sally: “…talking halulus already” ? But this is the way I normally talk?! Wait, does this mean I’m hemajang? Oh no, wait, we already got a hemajang someplace. 😯 😛

  325. David In Oregon says:

    4G: I have worked in high tech, but wouldn’t necessarily consider myself a techie. Looking at other peoples phones, and comparing it to mine, I’d say if theirs is a “smart” phone, then mine must be lolo. 😆 Don’t forget, I’m also the guy who communicates via snail mail to people, writing letters with a fountain pen. That’s about as low tech as it is. Any lower than that, and I’ve have to use a goose feather quill, or a piece of charcoal. 😆

  326. sally says:

    Are you all sneaking my meds? LOL Everybody is talking all halulus already.

  327. David In Oregon says:

    4G: Some things never change, or should I say, some people never change. 😆

  328. 4G says:

    Oops – “meant” not “went” 😳

  329. 4G says:

    Dang, @DiO – I thought she just meant weirdo back then – if she went weirdo now, nevermind! LOL! BTW, are you a techie?

  330. 4G says:

    @Ankles – that campus you mentioned in the “80’s/90’s” was not UH was it? Also, your mention of “RSTE” – I’m hoping that’s a typo, ELSE I’m losing my mind (which would not exactly be a new revelation). LOL

    If memory serves, I recall RSTS (vaguely) . . . .

  331. David In Oregon says:

    sally: I think you made a mistake on your message. It should have said, “….back then…or now…” 😆 nah!! jus’ kidding eh?! 😆

  332. David In Oregon says:

    VAX? Wow, I remember that. A company I worked for when I moved to this state was using that. I had so many shortcuts set up, it was fun. 😀

  333. 4G says:

    @Ankles – yeah, I remember an exchange or two with you where you mentioned PDP’s and VAX’s. I always liked DCL. I never was fortunate enough to actually have had a workstation back then – all I had was a dumb terminal, but those VT-100’s were pretty cool . . . . 😉

    @sally – I believe that Rod now has my name and he is free to share it with you. It was a while ago that I sent him that information, though. I can resend it to him if he no longer has it. LK also has my name and she is also free to share it with you. I’m pretty sure that if LK doesn’t have my full name anymore, she will likely at least remember my first name – right, @LK? 😉

  334. ankleBYTERS says:

    4G:

    Yes I did…we used many of the DEC computers on campus in the ’80/90s. I remember working on the PDP 11/70s, RSTE, VMS, VAX and Digitial Unix. In the off hours we would play Zork on the 11/70. Back then I had a Dec workstation with a huge (at that time) monitor on my desk.

  335. C0hiba says:

    @Rod such a fun post. Spent most of the day in the sun working and sweeting on top of a roof. Thanks MLCer’s for the amusing stories.

    @sally, I wondered how you and Rod figured out Mitch is my cuz.
    IIRC, he got our other cousin’s key board. This cuz was the keyboard player for the Cadiente’s. I can’t recall who the former members of that group are but think a few of them are involved with the Night Club Reunion events.

  336. sally says:

    So 4G, you know who I am, the least you could do is email Rod and tell him your IRL name. Unless you were a weirdo back then… then never mind LOL!

  337. 4G says:

    @TwoFish – my dad taught at numerous schools. His connection to Seawalker was at Kawananakoa. I would rather not get into too many specifics in public here . . . . If there’s a need, though, we could always get Rod to provide each other with addys . . . . 😉

  338. 4G says:

    @Ankles – nice tunes; TY! BTW, I had meant to mention, but kept forgetting, did you hear about Ken Olsen?

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/08/technology/business-computing/08olsen.html

  339. TwoFish says:

    @4G what and where did your dad teach?

  340. ankleBYTERS says:

    Gary looks like my BIL 😆

  343. LINDA KATO says:

    Good evening MLCers ❗ Enjoying your stories ❗ 😀

  344. 4G says:

    I was getting a kick out of reading the first “It’s a Small World” post and entries. My “small world” experience here actually happened on that original post. That’s when I suspected that I may have met sally a few times way back in high school. Since that post, I have come to realize that I actually did meet her way back then.

    There was another post where I found there is also a slight connection with Seawalker. @Seawalker – I don’t know if you remember since we didn’t really get into the details of that slight connection. Suffice it say that you were one of my dad’s students. 😉 I don’t think that we have actually met IRL, though.

  345. David In Oregon says:

    Mark’75: That’s because the connections are not broken, but expanded on.

  346. TwoFish says:

    @Seawalker – I can take you up on the same offer you made, “But when we do, I’ll buy the order of spicy chicken at the place where Chicken Alice is kitchen mama.”?

  347. sally says:

    Kinda makes for dangerous dating huh?

  348. TwoFish says:

    @Seawalker, you talking about Jeanne & Susie?

  349. David In Oregon says:

    Goooooood evening to all the people I know I’m related to, and the people whom I know, but not sure if I’m related to. 😆

  350. Mark'75 says:

    Isn’t it funny, that no matter how big our population has grown, there’s never a shortage of “small world” occurrences?

  351. sally says:

    Good Grief I think it’s time for a nap.

  352. sally says:

    What? What was weird? I don’t see anything weird.

    What time is it? oh, time for more drugs.

  353. 4G says:

    No prob, Rod – I thought that was kind of a weird post . . . . 😉

  354. Rodney says:

    @4G – Sorry, had to edit your post little bit. Gotta excuse sally. She’s on meds. LOL

  355. LINDA KATO says:

    Good afternoon MLCers ❗ 😀 Another beautiful, sunny, humid voggy day in paradise ❗ Another excuse to go to Zippy’s again. Too hot to cook ❗ 😆

  356. 4G says:

    @sally – eh, no fair changing handles. I don’t need help getting any more confused! 😉

  357. sally says:

    @Kage: GAH! hahaha! ho boy.

  358. Kage says:

    @sally – I going tell my coworker you when call her one kakaroach… 😉

  359. Kage says:

    Masako gave me her rum cake recipe. When I told my sister about the recipe and where it came from, she thought she might know Masako.

    sis: “Where she work?”
    me: XXXXX
    sis: “What she do there? ”
    me: YYYYYY
    sis: “She look like…… ?”
    me: yeah.
    sis: “I think I know her.”

  360. sally says:

    @Mike in Waipio: What shop are you in? My brother is in Shop 56.

  361. Mike in Waipio says:

    A few months ago, we had plumbing problems. A friend of a friend recommended CN. I asked if he was related to my high school classmate MN. CN says that’s my brother. We talked and he learned that I work at the Shipyard. Later, CN talked to a friend who works at the Shipyard and asked if he knows MikeY. His friend says, “You mean Eddie’s brother?” Eddie IS my brother and it seems they all played softball together. Small world.

  362. sally says:

    You know my co-worker’s Aunty’s Boss’ SIL’s braddah? You do? I used go school with his nephew’s girlfriend’s mom.

  363. M says:

    Everyone is either an auntie, uncle, bradah or sista. It’s a small state.

  364. Ynaku says:

    SORRY, MY CALCULATOR NO WORK 😆

    Sorry, been doing lots of paperwork and the DANG EMAIL SO SLOW 😡 MORE SLOW THEN ONE SNAIL GOING UPHILL.

    STUCK STUCK STUCK REFRESH REFRESH REFRESH STILL NO WORK 😡

  365. sally says:

    @Ynaku: heh? They one year OLDER. I thought you was same as me.

  366. Ynaku says:

    They only 1 yr younger den us.

    Sorry no DM me on FB. Stay blocked again. I gotta wait until I get home 🙂

  367. sally says:

    @Ynaku: come to think of it, you might know my BFF’s husband from Paukaa and his best friend from Papaikou. They grad ’73. They’re names are… hahahaha, no us real names on da blog. I tell you next time I see you.

  368. sally says:

    Couple of yrs ago my SIL asked me to go to her uncle’s Bday Party in Waimanalo. Are you kidding me? A birthday party for a 89 yr old Hawaiian man in Waimanalo? Heck yah, I’m not missing that! My brother had to work… bummers for him.

    This is the side of her family that I hadn’t met yet so, on the way there, she’s telling me stories of her cousins and how they played while growing up and just giving me background on them. So we get there and I get introduced to the Birthday Boy and others when I hear my name being called. And it’s a nickname so I know it’s a Hawaii 72 peep. It’s P.P.! One of the Farrington reps!

    Turns out P.P. is my SIL’s cousin and the Birthday Boy is her dad. My SIL was like “Geez, can we go ANYWHERE where you don’t know somebody?” LOL

  378. sally says:

    At work we have a “Wall of Fame”… a big bulletin board that we decorate with pictures of patients we clip from the newpaper, MidWeek, magazines, etc. For awhile I had my Hawaii 74 MidWeek article on the board and a patient was reading it. She noticed my last name and asked if it was same as J.H. and I said yah. Which meant I was from Waialae Bowl. I said yah. She said then I know B.K., the lady behind the desk. B.K. is her mom!

    Whatta small world.

  379. sally says:

    Hello Hello MLCers!

    Every now and again I mention my “Filipino Family”… my friend since kindergarten that I grew up with, her family lived on M. Ave. AP asked if she had a brother named W. Turns out W’s wife is AP’s cousin.

    Geez, small world. Mark’75 knows this family too cuz, well, we grew up in the same ‘hood.

  380. M says:

    Guud morning MLCers ❗ 🙂
    Today is Friday for me and Monday is a holiday, 4 day beach house weekend ❗ 🙂

  381. eddyo says:

    Rod,

    Haven’t you ever heard of six degrees of separation? In Hawaii, it’s probably four ( or two! heh, heh).

    Being a KHS alum, I may even know some of those people behind the initials, but can’t figure out. I have seen several folks from Waimanalo & Kailua here on the Big Island & even an occasional Surfrider window decal.

  382. Rodney says:

    @Seawalker – ❓

  383. David In Oregon says:

    BOT: I got one word to say about “It’s A Small World” Facebook!! 😆

  384. David In Oregon says:

    Seawalker: That’s why Paula stuck her tongue out. It’s ’cause of the joke you played on Linda. 😛

  385. Seawalker says:

    @LK – Me, joking? Hehehe, got you going, eh? 🙂

    ***
    Good night, sleep tight, and may the bed bugs bite minimal only… LOL

  386. David In Oregon says:

    You may as well have said your name was Sum Dum Gai. 😆

  387. Seawalker says:

    @Rod – I’ll give you the ‘biggest’ small world. After they blow the conch shell at 8:30 for E Pule Kakou, try noticing all the people there. 🙂

  388. David In Oregon says:

    Seawalker: What you expect? You use my name, that’s the kiss of death. 😆

  389. Seawalker says:

    I also made a connection with DiO. He knows a bunch of Liliha boys who played basketball with bother at McKinley. And we both know the person who own’s Fatboy’s in Kailua and Waipio. BTW, I said I knew at David in Oregon at the counter once. Then, I asked if they could go generous with my loco moco. No deal. DiO, you have to straighten C.U. out so he can give me more. LOL

  390. LINDA KATO says:

    DIO: You are absolutely right ❗ 😀

  391. David In Oregon says:

    Linda: You’re welcome. I always try to save info like that on my computer, as I never know if and when it will be useful. With so many bad people out there these days, it helps to have a way to check on folks and weed out the bad ones.

  392. LINDA KATO says:

    Seawalker: I’ll never forget the joke you played on me when you said you went to McKinley and I thought you were my prom date at Jolly Rogers while in high school. 😆 Not knowing at the time that you were just born and are still a kid ❗ 😀

  393. LINDA KATO says:

    Seawalker: AP is pretty and kind ❗ Don’t let that picture fool you ❗ 😀

  394. LINDA KATO says:

    Good evening DIO ❗ Thanks for all of your help while I searched for a good roofer. You are the best friend one could have ❗ 😀

  395. Seawalker says:

    My first connection was with either snow or with AP. With snow, I started talking to her about calculus at McKinley. She, somehow is a brain, and, me, I somehow want to be a brain. We still don’t know each other. But when we do, I’ll buy the order of spicy chicken at the place where Chicken Alice is kitchen mama.

    With AP, I think we were talking something about shop and home economics. “Go home cook rice.” And we both went to Lanakila, Kawananakoa, and McKinley. We both know a public official representing the Liliha district. I also know her sister. But after that tongue-sticking picture, I’d be scared to run into AP!

  396. David In Oregon says:

    Good evening Linda…..

  397. LINDA KATO says:

    Good evening MLCers ❗ 😀

    ct: good night ❗

  398. ct says:

    oppps … dats … hold up da fort …

  399. ct says:

    Well … just wanted to say howzit … and see how everyone was doin … gotta hit da books before it gets too late … hold up … keep da seat warm Seawalker …

  400. ct says:

    @Seawalker – Don’t know about that … it may be warm … and fuzzy … hahaha

  401. David In Oregon says:

    Seawalker: Is that your ancient Chinese secret Confucian saying of the day?

  402. David In Oregon says:

    Rod: So funny, I just stopped by, and for a while, da 💡 neva go on. I had to look, and look, and look to see what was happening. I didn’t realize this was a new blog entry!! 😆

  403. Rodney says:

    I gotta remember that one, Seawalker. LOL

  404. Seawalker says:

    Just like the toilet seat, the first person sitting on it makes it warm for the rest of us. LOL

  405. David In Oregon says:

    First!!
