Gone Coconuts

The trees have been castrated.  Yeah!

Once per week from the time we first complained — about a month before I posted the photos — OC or I have contacted the office and reminded them that we have no choice where to park and so we fully intend to hold them responsible for any further damage to our car.  Once per week someone has assured us that, “We’ll take care of it.”

Well, they have — finally — about two months after our original complaint, during which time the coconuts doubled in size.  They were pretty much approaching full grown.  We suspect other people had started complaining as well.  However, our section of the complex was the first one visited by the tree trimmers so now — for a few months at least — we can park without fear of a coconut taking out our windshield.

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. SN — well if there’s only one, then what should we consider the mosquitoes, the high cost of living and the overcrowded roads?

    Polona — not really. They did it to protect their insurance, not to save our car.

    Dr. John — what do you call all those people who strap blades on their feet then go out on the frozen lake and fall down, and fall down, and fall down, and fall down, and ….

  2. one battle but not the war… it’s mostly nuts of a different kind that make life difficult 😉

  3. I beg of you, just for my entertainment, go by the office and ask them where all the coconuts went. Ponder aloud that you don’t know where you’re going to find your fresh coconut now. 😀
