Don’t Forget

O’Ceallaigh & The Quill

After you’ve visited here, don’t forget to check there!

Before you go, here’s a bit of something to whet your appetite:

As you know, O.C. plays his horn on the point almost every night. Usually when we walk down the hill, one ferry is already in port for the night. However the other night, it wasn’t so.

Me: The ferry is missing.

He: It’s on a training run.

Me: That’s silly. Why would they need to train the ferry? It was built to do its job.

He: Well, sometimes they need to put it on track.

Me: [clueless] Huh?

He: They need to put it on a track to train it.

Me: Oh. Of course they do. I should have realized that. Thank you for explaining, Honey.”

He: No problem.

Me: [sweet & dreamy] You’re so smart.

He: [dryly] Oh, yeah.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Quilly, aren’t we lucky to have men around to explain the hard stuff to us?…..Judy

    O.C, play louder. I’d like to hear that…..Judy

  2. Doug — our conversation? Yes. How did you know?

    J.D. — what would we ever do without them? And maybe — if I ever get my comp back — I’ll film him playing again.

    Dr. John — riiiiight.

  3. Melli — two parts love, two parts silliness — blend well and share!

    Kat — why are you stressed about my car? I can’t drive it to
    Hawaii, it has to be shipped ….

    Nessa — the car actually won’t arrive in Hawaii until about the time we leave the mainland. (Wait, we’re not on the mainland, we’re on San Juan Island, but the mainland is only 1.5 hours away by ferry.
