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. dude… he’s got a full Cleveland going. But isn’t he supposed to wear white spats with those brown pants? And that shirt… cough, cough, cough.

    Hey… where’s his goatee? Isn’t he supposed to have a goatee or soul patch to counter them shoes?


  2. Melli — check out the sun glasses and the fancy digital watch on his wrist! Nobody surfs like OC!

    Jientje — uhm, were you grouping OC in that category? LOL!

    Dr. John — OC says that’s as real as it’s gonna get for him.

    Mar — I thought it the surest one to bring a smile!

    Baba — if there are any sharks where OC is surfing THEY are the ones that should be concerned.

    Carletta — thank you. It’s one of my favorites.

    Karen — everyday I have to fish your comments out of my SPAM filter. I don’t know why it doesn’t like you!

    Doug — nope, OC. But I am certain that either Dude or Dude inspired it.

    Sauerkraut — I’ll forward your dress suggestions to OC, but anyone advocating spats has no business mocking Aloha shirts.

  3. Dang. OC, I don’t know what you did to upset Quilly, but I’d give her whatever she wants. Who knows what other photos of you she’s got in that camera of hers. 😉

  4. That’s the kind of surfing I need to get into…now way to get hurt, since I’m a little accident prone.

  5. Whoof!! You must live in Hawaii! ARF, arf, arf!!

    Just dropped by to let you know what a good dog I am. I finished my “R” woofout even using “Reba” or the dog park!! AND I did my “S” too!!! So now I’m caught up ’til “T” in just over 3 hours. Bark!

  6. LOL… that is a fun idea for your “S” post, Quilly! I’m getting closer, but have been so busy tonight helping Reba that I haven’t gotten to my own work. Soon… very soon, though I think I’ll try real hard to be in bed before 4am tonight. That’s getting to be a bad habit! haha.

  7. I’m baaaaccckkkk!! But just to tell you that my “Q” is quite done! I must add a warning: This post is fowl!! Haha.

  8. Brig — I gave OC the option of vetoing this photo. He just sighed and looked at me all sad-eyed and long suffering. I took that as permission.

    Juliana — it’s in a local restaurant. Come give it a whirl!

    Minkydo — mine, too!

    Cooper — that’s because sometimes when he blogged he went in over his head.

    Shelly — you could trip climbing on or off the board.

    Reba — Hawaii? What was your FIRST clue?

    Alice — OC only grudgingly agreed.

    Gattina — and I could surf in full makeup without mussing my mascara or my hair ….

    Alice — more fowl then the previous one? I must see.

  9. “Dude!”


    “That’s cheating!

    “Damn right, dude. Cheating the emergency room. Unlike some dudes I know. Some rather expensive dudes. When did you say they were taking that cast off again?”

    “Whenever they’ll let me set sail without you, dude!”

    “Nah, dude, you’d never resort to that.”

    Try me, dude! A nice resort is exactly what I need! Ya wanna quit posin’ and get me another Mai Tai?”

  10. Sweeeet!!! My “S” is now done!!! I have been watching Reba sleep for some time now as I work here… now I’m going to go do my last minute ‘critter chores’, making sure all the others are fed and watered… then I’m off to sleep too. “T” can wait until Tomorrow! TeeHee.

  11. Ameoba — don’t let those voices in your head talk you into doing any real surfing!

    Alice — you’ve caught up nicely.

    David — he’s servin’ something ….

    Robert — if you only knew how serious my scientist truly is, you’d double that statement!

    JD — since it’s a restaurant, the only sharks he’ll have to worry about are listed near the right hand edge of the menu.
