For those of you who have been patiently — and not so patiently — waiting, over a year and three months later, I have once again posted a short story, “Sticks & Stones” on my memoir blog:
Sugar Jay was my best-friend, but she was as spoiled as her name implies. She would never do things my way. My mud pie recipe had specific ingredients. The perfect mud pie has a firm, creamy texture, but Sugar, one of those â€œwhole earthâ€ freaks, kept adding rocks, sticks and pine cones to the mix.

This is post 900.
A number like 900 calls for something momentous and weighty.
I got nada.
So I’m just going to regale you with some of my favorite moments from me:

June 2008 — Brings you to date. On June first we (my blog and I) celebrated our third anniversary. Today I have posted my 900th post. A lot of pictures and a lot of words have graced these pages. I have had much fun here and met many wonderful people — OC included.
Each of you have touched my heart. You’ve opened my eyes, challenged me to care and made me think. I cherish you all more than I can say. This anniversary is yours as much as mine, because if it weren’t for my readers, I wouldn’t be here.

SKY WATCH comes to us via Wiggerâ€™s World, in the United Kingdom.
Hawaii is the Rainbow State
This is the first rainbow I have captured on film. We see rainbows here on an almost daily basis, but usually when we are on the freeway and it just isn’t a convenient place for taking pictures. OC just won’t stop when I ask him to. He is surprisingly obstinate about such things.
I learned about Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, or Brudda Iz, before I moved to Hawaii, but I did not learn of his death until (just before I moved here) much after the fact. Even so, I still grieve for him as do most of the islanders. When Iz died the world lost a beautiful, peaceful soul.
I had a boss once who used to tell us the mail had arrived by yelling from the shop, which had a view of the mailbox, “The eagle has landed!” On paydays, which at the time was the first working day of every month (only paid once per month), he would add the phrase, “– and he shiites money!”
