Tree TIme


Across the road from the fruit stands on the North Shore, there is a little path which leads to this tree. I cannot look at this photo without tasting the Banana Lumpia I was eating while here.

We’re coming up to Christmas which is a really busy time of year for everyone, so don’t be surprised to see less posts from us over the next 2 weeks.

On top of that, we – that is Beedoo747 and her other half – decided to give another kitty a forever home for Christmas and we are struggling a bit with the introduction to our older cat.

I did get a lovely invitation from the Hawai’i Tourism Authority to fill in a visitor satisfaction survey after filling in a visitor questionnaire at the airport, and I will take some photos of this to share with you sometime this week.

Sad News

Today The Other Half and I had to make a very difficult decision to say goodbye to our much loved cat.


We always agreed that we did not want her to suffer and the last couple of days she had been struggling. She was such a great cat and tough too, to make it this far after the pancreatitis she suffered before we went away to Hawaii. We loved her very much, she will be greatly missed and we’re both pretty upset obviously.


She had a huge love for plastic bags and boxes, as so many cats do. But she also loved suitcases, despite the fact that whenever they appeared it usually meant her owners were going somewhere without her. She also loved to sleep on or in them when we returned, perhaps out of spite for the suitcases that signalled our departure.


I do not know if this house will ever be home again, because she made it home for us.
