Kona, Trying to Sleep
Tommy, With Exciting News

Kona!  KONA!  Wake up, my friend!  I got some terrific news for you!  Obama pardoned me!  Obama pardoned me!

Dude.  Keep jumping on me like that, and I'll raise Cain with your turkey butt.

Thanks for viewing our public service announcement.  

We hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving.

Tommy avoided the chopping block once again, and Kona's getting ready for the cold winter by putting on some weight.

We just want to encourage our fellow Americans to do the right thing--get out and vote!  It's your privilege...and your patriotic duty!

Kalau, Kaua, and Ryder
The Three Menehune--Together Again

Perspective is everything.

For those in our family who are older, it's only been about a year since we saw these three posing together.

But for these kolohe (Hawaiian for rascal) guys, it's been a lifetime.

The world continues to turn on its axis, but not unlike the bones in my body, it's groaning from all the turmoil, damage, and utter lack of respect the majority of the human race has for Mother Earth.

But perspective is everything, I remind myself.

So when I'm weighed down by the cares and burdens of this mortal coil, as Shakespeare would phrase it, I find respite and spiritual oasis in the joy of thanking God for these three little ones.

They remind me, you see, that just because the world might be on an irretrievable tailspin, God has not abandoned his faithful vigil over us.  

These little guys are living proof that God never makes mistakes, and He never takes a day off.

As this post draws to a close, let's take a look at yesteryear...and as we do, let's indulge in smiling more and being kinder to each other.

God bless you all!
