Odds and Sods

I was just talking to my pal Melissa on the phone. She is going to spend New Years with her beau Gary tripping the night fantastic to the dulcet tones of  Phil Weir and Bob Lesh. I can think of no more painful entrance into the double digit decade short of extreme amateur dental surgery.

She also said that the blog was sort of lurching into mediocrity with the typical standard posts and responses of countless similar offerings across the web. Once the Blue Heron Blast was like a new lover, full of wonder and magic but it has now apparently morphed into a forty year marriage where she's crapping while he is shaving.

KJ called yesterday and said that he was watching a Flintstones cartoon and had empirical proof that Fred and Wilma were in fact christians. There was some christian iconography in the house, I don't quite remember, perhaps a cross. I countered that Darren and Samantha Stevens from Bewitched actually had a menorah in the house, a first for television sitcoms or perhaps another case for the tribe's satanic roots. In any case, it got me to thinking about the absurdity of a modern stone age family that lived amongst the dinosaurs, that we all know actually never existed on our 6000 year old earth. And celebrating Christmas, no less. Very prescient. Maybe I just have too much time on my hands...

I think Grumpy is stewing because I am enforcing an eight comment a day response limit.

Last blue moon for a long time tomorrow. Use it wisely and have fun. Please don't drink and drive and stay  safe. We want everybody around to flip 2009 the bird on Friday.

Speaking of birds, all three juvenile hawks flew into the valley yesterday, playing around near their birth tree.

Leslie and I are in the midst of a Hawaii 5-0 rerun marathon. I never knew she had a thing for Jack Lord before, god he's so grouchy. Watched the 2 hour pilot with the original Danno. Lots of hippies in Hawaii in 1968. We are getting pumped for our trip. Understand there's a bunch of humpback whales around Kona,  and got some tips on a great snorkeling area near Kapoho. Want to get into Waipio.
Had a great meal with Doug and Retha tonight as they prepare to go down to La Paz tomorrow.

Peace and Happy New Year!

Why don't you serve somebody?

It was a holiday season special of the Flintstones called "The Flintstones Christmas Special" Although isn't "yubba dubba do" hebrew for something?

You know I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you...

"Why don't you serve somebody?"

excellent idea, actually; instead of flying off to some distant locale to get away from it all, consider seeking out the needy in our midst and serving them, instead? i feel we tend to minimize our power as individuals; a simple random act of kindness, multiplied by hundreds and thousands, could result in a tidal wave of change, for the better; "you may say i'm a dreamer..."
