Air Doxie

For the past Halloweens that we've had Emi, I've always wanted to make an aircraft wings costume for her. Timing wasn't here, as Halloween fell on the weekends, and I had to work those evenings. A few years, I had the chance to make her costume made of foam core board. I didn't have much time to do more with the decorating, but the fact that I made it, was enough for me. Emi was a trooper for wearing as we went around the Waikele Premium Outlets.

This week, Grandpa would have turned 108. Today's photo was taken during his 105th birthday celebration. Unfortunately, we lost him last year, but he led a good long life!

Touchdown Reception?

A wide receiver from the Faith Lutheran Crusaders (Las Vegas, NV) reaches up to make a high-point catch for a touchdown, as a defensive back from the Kaimukī Bulldogs tries to make a play. Unfortunately, the receiver's left foot landed out of bounds, thus an incomplete pass.

This game was to have been played on Saturday, September 3, 2016, but was postponed to the next day, and moved to Aloha Stadium, because of Hurricane Lester. Fortunately, the storm turned north, and did not affect the islands.
