Thursday 3 – Random

Totally random thoughts…


  1. If you had to move to another state other than Hawaii, what state would you live in?  Why?
  2. How many pairs of shoes do you own?  Elaborate please.
  3. Tell a joke.


Okay, here’s my replies:


  1. If you had to move to another state other than Hawaii, what state would you live in?  Why?
    I think I would choose Washington state.  I like cold – and Washington state gets pretty cold.  Lots of Hawaii transplants live there.  Everything is green and fresh.  Pakalolo is legal.
  2. How many pairs of shoes do you own?  Elaborate please.
    Wait, gotta check…
    35 pairs of which 9 are boots – Western boots.  Mostly “Ropers”.  About 3 pairs of athletic shoes.  About 5 or 6 pairs of utility or hiking style (high top) shoes.  And the rest are casual and dress shoes.  Oh, 1 pair are Heelys.Heelys
  3. Tell a joke.
    An old Italian Mafia Don is dying and he calls his grandson to his bed!“Lissin-a me. I wanna for you to taka my chrome plated 38 revolver so you will always remember me.”“But grandpa, I really don’t lika guns. Howzabout you leava me your Rolex watch instead?”“Shuddup an lissin. Somma day you gonna runna da business….. you gonna have a beautifula wife, lotsa money, a biga home and maybe; a couple a bambinos.”“Somma day you gonna comma home and maybe find you wife inna bed with another man. Whadda you gonna do then……. pointa to you watch and say “Times up”?”

    Hey DIO! Howzit braddah?

    If I had to move from Hawai’i, I’d probably pick Pennsylvania, Hershey specifically. I know it’s changed, but having grown up there, it’s like going home. I love the Pa Dutch people and the food too (hard to beat chicken and dumplings and a slice of milk pie for dessert! 🙂

  3. Seawalker says:

    Ho, just had grinds at Yummys. That’s the one where you select your entree and they tell you to pick up to 4 veggies for your plate. Was good. But half-way through, scooped up a helping of seaweed. But shoots. Had this piece of metal in my seaweed, and it went into my mouth. Yikes. Lucky I didn’t bite down or swallowed that sucker. For the life of me, have no idea how it got in there. But never like make stink. Didn’t go up to the counter to complain. I just wiped off the nickel and put it in my wallet. So what? Food wasn’t rich at all. You can’t get rich with 5 cents. 😆 It was full of vitamins, namely iron. 😆 Food was still good.

    @Seawalker – LOL!

    So – “squeaky” clean, too?! 😉

    Sorry – I’m being a PITA. But, sometimes, just can’t help myself, you know? 😳

  5. Seawalker says:

    Knock, knock.

    Who’s there?

    Me, Ma.

    Bull$hit if I’m calling myself a mahu!


  6. Seawalker says:

    @4G – LOL, on the lawn chair. Actually, it was a beach chair. Was really on the cheap back then. My equalizer for not having nice things is to have the place spic and span. Put everything away. The neatness makes everything you have look nicer. Don’t know why that is, but other people can’t seem to be able to keep things neat compared to my joint. Once I thought about going into those cowboy boots shoe stores in Dallas and actually getting one. But saw the price–one bill–everything nice about it except for the price. How about that LaBron? Thought he was going to end up with the Lakers or Knicks before going back to the Cavaliers. He’s a big boy, so why the homesickness? Going to be good for basketball fans with all these changes being made.

  7. 4G says:

    The topic did say, “random”, right? 😉

    “Western” Boots – AKA, cowboy boots? I can relate to an attraction to cowboy boots. Those things are awesome! LOL.

    The last time I wore a pair was in high school. I don’t really know that much about cowboy boots, but my dad liked them. That said, not like he had nine pairs of them, either! LOL. He had one pair and he only got them when I was like in high school. I don’t know if they were Ropers (that name rings a bit of a bell, though), but the pair he owned were authentic.

    Qualifier – I remember having toy cowboy boots growing up. Playing cowboy is something I remember doing a lot of as a youngster. So, cowboy boots were cool just by the fact that they were “cowboy”. LOL.

    At any rate, for me, unless you have worn a pair of “real” cowboy boots, you might not view them as comfortable shoes based on their appearance. Plus, they look like they would be too narrow, right?

    Those things are REALLY comfortable shoes! Perhaps it has something to do with the steel shank. I don’t know why, but they are comfortable shoes and fun to wear.

    I remember my dad letting me borrow his prized cowboy boots for going out with on several occasions in high school. 🙂

    @Seawalker – I was just thinking, re: PITA

    LOL! Long way from lawn chair as furniture, eh? 😉

  9. khs68 says:

    @Seawalker: He caught a gekko once. We knew he did because he barfed up gekko parts. Double yewwwww!

    Now hubby has to hunt down the gekkos and get rid of them before the cat does.

  10. Seawalker says:

    @khs – That’s my kind of cat. Good, that means no roaches at your place. Now, if the cat can chow them geckos too, that would be a prime breeding feline. In our kitchen, if it doesn’t go down the garbage disposal, we keep a container with a plastic bag for waste food. Nothing out in the open. It’s a p-i-t-a, but we don’t have any cock-a-roaches around. 😉

  11. khs68 says:

    @Seawalker: Cat won’t eat human food. He’s weird. He eats B52s when he catches them. Yewwwww!

  12. Seawalker says:

    @khs – Was pretty hefty-size, no the bag. Okay, got plenty left still yet. Pretty sure we got Yoshida sauce in the fridge, so I go try ’em. I like my ika sliced and red. But no can complain for a buck ninety-nine. Your cat likes it too?

  13. khs68 says:

    @Seawalker: The shredded hot ika taste good mixed with Yoshida sauce and microwaved little while.

    “Poor Kimo the Dog”

    A tita goes to the house of her boyfriend’s parents for dinner. She’s meeting the family for the first time and is kinda nervous-like. They all sit down and start to eat real ono kind luau food. Lau lau, lomi salmon, dried aku, poke, squid luau, and poi. However, she starts to feel a little discomfort, thanks to nervousness and the squid luau with da sour poi. The gas pains are almost making her eyes water. Left with no other choice, she decides to relieve herself a bit and lets out a dainty little fart. It wasn’t loud, but everyone at the table heard the “poot”.

    Before she even had a chance to be embarrassed, her boyfriend’s father looked over at the dog who stay moi moi next to her feet and said in a rather stern voice, ” Kimo!”

    The tita thought, “Eh, ‘dis is great!” and one big smile wen come across her face.

    A couple of minutes later, she was beginning to feel the pain again. Auwe! Dis time she nevah hesitate. She wen let one rip louda and longa.

    The father again looked at the dog and yelled, “Dammit Kimo!”. Once again the tita let out one big smile and thought, “Hoo yea, fa’ out!”

    A few minutes later, the tita had to let a noddah one go. Dis time she nevah even think about it. She let rip a fart that rivaled a whistle of a freight train hauling sugar cane through Waianae.

    Finally, the father looked at the dog with disgust and yelled, “Godfonnit Kimo, get away from her before she sh*ts all ovah you!”

    Too much ika and Miller Lite last night. 😆

    @Seawalker – tiger’s tail??

  19. Seawalker says:

    Yeah, most states I would just visit and don’t want to necessarily live there. Like @dihudfan said about Vegas, other than the gambling, drinking, eating, shopping, better cost-of-living, and the babes, Hawaii does me just fine. Or the natural beauty and glaciers of Alaska, after you been there and done that, it’s time to move on. How about the change in seasons? It would be great to go through a cycle like that for a year in the Midwest or East Coast. But after that, beach weather sounds good to me. The drive along and up the Pacific Coast Highway is totally scenic in California, Oregon and Washington. Bet you the truckers would think otherwise. And who stepped on the tiger’s tail this morning? 😆

    There were 3 men who died and before God would let them into heaven, he gave them a chance to come back as anything they wanted.
    The first guy said ” I want to come back as myself, but 100 times smarter. So God made him 100 times smarter.
    The second guy said “I want to be better than that guy, make me 1000 times smarter. So God made him 1000 times smarter.
    The last guy decided he would be the best. So he said “God, make me better than both of them, make me 1,000,000 times smarter.
    So God made him a woman !! 😉

    LOL, that’s why they got fast-actin’ Tanactin and Bristol-Meyers is working on an even faster formula than extra-strength Advil. 😆

    “Egg Dispute”

    Every day, a hen owned by the Hawaiian would lay an egg in his garden, which was used in his daily breakfast. One day, he looked into his garden, only to find that the hen had laid her egg in the Texan’s garden.

    He was about to go next door when he saw the Texan rush out of the house to pick the egg. The Hawaiian ran up to the Texan and told him that the egg belonged to him because he owned the hen. The Texan disagreed because the egg was laid on his property.

    They argued for awhile until finally the Hawaiian said, “In Hawaii, we normally solve disputes by the following method.”

    “I kick you in the nuts and time how long it takes you to get back up, then you kick me in the nuts and time how long it takes for me to get up, whoever gets up quicker wins the egg.”

    The Texan thought for a moment and noticed that the Hawaiian was only wearing a pair of those funny “slippahs”, then looked at his own feet which boasted a shiny new pair of alligator cowboy boots… with pointed toes no less. He quickly agreed to resolve the dispute “Hawaiian Style.”

    The Hawaiian took a few steps back and kicked the Texan in the balls as hard as he could. The Texan fell to the ground clutching himself and howeled in agony for 30 minutes.

    Eventually, the Texan stood up and said, “Now it’s my turn to kick you.”

    The Hawaiian replied, “Nahhh bruddah, keep the egg.”

    A rather bad man dies and meets Satan in a room with three doors. Satan explains, “I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that you have to spend eternity behind one of these doors. But, the good news is that you can take a peek behind each and take your choice.”

    So, the man opened the first door and saw a room full of people, standing on their heads on a concrete floor. Not very nice, he thought.

    Opening the second door, he saw a room full of people standing on their heads on a wooden floor. Better, he thought, but best to check the last door.

    Upon opening the last door, he saw a room full of people, standing waist-deep in excrement and sipping coffee.

    “Of the three, this one looks best,” he said and waded in to get something to drink while Satan closed the door.

    A few minutes later the door opened, Satan stuck his head in and said, “Ok, coffee break’s over, back on your heads!”

    Buddy Hackett joke:

    Guy goes into his doctor’s office.
    He’s got a dot in the middle of his forehead.
    Doctor sees him and says, “Oh my god! I’ve never seen this before, but I’ve read about it in medical school.”
    Guy says, “Well doctor…what is it?”
    He says, “In six weeks, you’ll have a penis growing out of your forehead.”

    Guy says, “Well doctor, cut it off!”
    Doctor says, “I can’t cut it off, it’s attached to your brain–you’d die.”
    So the Guy says, “So doctor, what you’re telling me is that in six weeks, every morning when I get up and look in the mirror I’m gonna see a penis growing out of my forehead?!”
    Doctor says, “Oh no no no, you won’t see it. The balls will cover your eyes.”

    Found this one…


    A man goes to the nursing home to visit his 84-year-old father.

    While there he notices the nurse give his father hot chocolate and Viagra.

    The man asks, “Why are you doing that? I mean, at his age what will it do for him?”

    The nurse explains, “The hot chocolate will help him sleep.”

    The man asks, “And the Viagra?”

    “Keeps him from falling out of bed.”

    If we were to leave Hawaii, I guess the only state I would move to would be to NEVADA. Our daughter plans to do her internship at hospitals there and possibly reside there for many years. If we have a grandchild, she wants us to help babysit…. and no state income taxes for Nevada! But, I would really, really miss Hawaii…… hard to imagine living anywhere else ❗

  34. LINDA KATO says:

    @Lowtone123: You take the prize today for your joke ❗ 😆

    Hawaiian Ice Fishing

    Two Hawaiian bruddahs decided to go fishing on ice for the first time. As they picked through the ice a voice rang out, “Noooo fishing here!”

    “Wow!” Kimo said, “eh Moki, you heard that”?

    “No!” replied Moki.

    They continued to pick and again the voice rang out, ” I said Noooo fishing here!”

    Moki said, “HO KIMO, I heard dat one”… then Kimo gazed to the heaven and said, “Is that you, our fish god Aumakua?”

    “NO!!” the voice cried

    “This is the manager of Ice Palace!”

  36. Lowtone123 says:

    1.If you had to move to another state other than Hawaii, what state would you live in? Why?
    Probably WA, CO or OR. I have visited and have left wanting to return.
    2.How many pairs of shoes do you own? Elaborate please.
    Seven. Three for work, two dress pairs, one for walking and one pair of cleats for softball.
    3.Tell a joke.
    A Filipino man took a test for employment and was asked to make a sentence using the following words: Defense, Detail, Defeat, & Deduct. After a brief moment he replied, “Deduct jumped over Defense, first Defeat than Detail. “

    @Rod – LOL re: Heelys.

    Might be worth the price of admission to see you ride them! 😉

    I’ve seen kids riding those, but I really don’t recall ever seeing an adult riding them . . . . 😉

  38. Rodney says:

    I used to ride the Heelys. Costco and Sam’s have the perfect floor. I still would ride them – but not in public. LOL

  39. 4G says:

    Looks like ika price (Jade?) back to $4.99 today at Fort Street Fisher.

  40. Seawalker says:

    A hot buy.

    For you ika lovers, Fisher’s is selling 8 oz, size bag for only $1.99. This is the real McCoy. Smells fishy as usual. Wife even made me brush my teeth twice last night. 😆

  41. Seawalker says:

    It’s not the shoes, it’s the man wearing the shoes! 😆 1 pair of brown dress shoes, 1 pair of black dress shoes, 1 casual one when I’m in jeans, and 1 hiking pair for exercising. Hey, @Rod, those Heely look awfully small in the picture. You know what they say about a man with small feet… 😆 All my ex’s live in Texas. Love the steaks, gumbo, and etouffee there, so I’ll with Texas.

    I’m Dead

    An older couple is lying in bed one morning, having just awakened from a good night’s sleep. He takes her hand and she responds, “Don’t touch me.”

    “Why not?” he asks.

    She answers back, “Because I’m dead.”

    The husband says, “What are you talking about? We’re lying here in bed together talking to one another.”

    She says, “No, I’m definitely dead.”

    He insists, “You’re not dead. What in the world makes you think you’re dead?”

    “Because I woke up this morning and nothing hurts.”

  43. 4G says:

    @LK – re: Imelda. LOL! I envision UR and AP must have matching, twin walk-in closets! J/K!

    But, I gotta ask, @Rod – what do you do with the Heelys???

    1. If you had to move to another state other than Hawaii, what state would you live in? Why?

    Timing is everything. LOL – still rooting for WA and CO! So, at this point, either WA or CO – for obvious, green reasons. Washington is actually my favorite state, though. I’m not exactly sure why, but I guess it has to do with a summer that I spent there. Great outdoors; nice mix of country/city. The Space Needle. Grand Coulee Dam. The Pacific Northwest. Plus, I like rainy weather. 😉 The roadside fruit stands during the summer. Pike Place, Alaskan King Crab, salmon, Ye Olde Curiosity Shop – shrunken heads and Sylvester! . . . .

    Oh – and the Solowheel is out of Camas! LOL.

    Not so sure about skinheads, though . . . . 🙁

    Colorado is pretty nice, too . . . . 🙂 “Colorado Rocky Mountain High” has new meaning. 😉

    2. How many pairs of shoes do you own? Elaborate please.

    LOL – well, there’s no way it’s even close to 35! I don’t even know where I would put that many shoes! I think I counted 11 pairs this morning. Five pairs of dress/casual – two pairs of which are waiting in the wings for repair – re-heel/sole. One pair unworn (waiting for a brown pair to wear out). Three pairs of really casual (however you define that! LOL.) – like slip-ons, reef walker types. A pair of golf shoes. A pair of basketball shoes and a pair of “running” shoes that I have used as walking shoes when travelling.

    Oh, and two pairs of rubber slippers. One “dress”, one boro-boro. LOL.

    3. Tell a joke.

    A saleswoman is driving toward home in northern Arizona when she sees a Native American woman hitchhiking. Because the trip had been long and quiet, she stops the car and the Native American woman gets in.

    After a bit of small talk, the Native American woman notices a brown bag on the front seat. “What’s in the bag?”, she asks.

    It’s a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband”, says the saleswoman.

    The Native American woman is silent for a while and then says, “Good trade.”

  44. LINDA KATO says:

    Good morning, Rod ❗ Or should I call you Imelda ❓ Joking ❗

    You must have an entire shoe case to yourself ❗

    I own only 4 pairs of shoes: 1 high heels for special occasions; 1 walking shoe (in case I ever walk for exercise); 1 slip on Onex new and 1 old slip on Onex old (for rainy days). That’s it!

    And, I don’t have a lot of clothes either! Not a fashionista! Rarely, shop! Prefer to go to Vegas almost every other month ❗ 😀

  45. LINDA KATO says:

    Good morning MLCers ❗ Happy Thursday ❗ 😀

    Have a great day everyone ❗ 😀

    Good morning, Mark Ellis, thank you for your very nice tribute to Jonathan Winters ❗

  46. Mark Ellis says:

    There’s a joke in my Oregonian obit of comedian Jonathon Winters:

    Jonathan Winters, November 11, 1925-April 11, 2013

    By Mark Ellis

    I was only 9 years old in 1960 when my father brought home the first comedy album from an innovative new comic. Once “Down to Earth” by Jonathan Winters hit our turntable, the grooves in the vinyl were very much in danger of being worn down by repeated plays. Though I was just a youngster, a lot of those plays were mine.

    I got the edgy sense of humor, and was held rapt by the wild improvisational style. Winters would go on to become a star of film and television, win a Grammy Award (and 11 nominations), and profoundly influence major comedians like Johnny Carson and Robin Williams.

    On one track titled “Prison Scene,” a Catholic priest tries to convince an escaped convict to give himself up. After succeeding, the priest asks,

    “You are a Catholic, aren’t you my boy?”

    “No,” replies the jail-breaker, “I’m a Lutheran.”

    A shot rings out, and we know that the priest himself has dispatched the convict.

    On April 11, Winters, 87, died of natural causes.

    Few comics could cause Carson to crack up and double over on the “Tonight Show,” but Winters did so regularly. Mere objects became hysterical props; just hand the portly comedian a paperweight, or a wrench, then stand back and watch his genius blossom.

    Winter’s unparalleled talent as master improviser was embodied in memorable characters like the ribald Maude Frickert (who inspired Carson’s Aunt Blabby) and small-town rube Elwood P. Suggins. In performance it was evident to audiences that here was a different breed of cat from the famous stand-ups of his day, including Bill Cosby and Don Rickles.

    Jack Paar, Carson’s predecessor on the “Tonight Show,” called him “Pound for pound, the funniest man alive.”

    Highlights of his career include his role as a pugnacious truck driver in “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World,” and as Mearth on comedian Robin William’s popular ’80s sitcom, “Mork and Mindy.” Though his hyper-creativity affected an entire generation of comics, it was Williams who most derivatively ventured into Winter’s territory.

    Williams released the following statement after the news of Winter’s passing, “First he was my idol, then he was my mentor and amazing friend. He was my comedy Buddha. Long live the Buddha.”

    Winter’s genius did not spring from an untroubled mind. He was institutionalized twice for what were described as nervous breakdowns and a bipolar disorder. There was an aspect of authenticity in his manic flights and hilarious characterizations.

    Give him a handkerchief and he’ll spread it out like a picnic blanket. Just like that you’ve got a dysfunctional–and uproarious–family picnic.

    I was only 9, but I understood Jonathan Winters. I sensed that beneath the inspired madman was a sensitive artist who found his place inspiring laughter, and kept us laughing at the craziness of the world around us.

    May his peace be restful, but not uneventful, and may his gift bring mirth into the hereafter.
