I know you like poke…



Inspired by our recent trip to Hawaii, I make poke. And a meme. Ahi, pico de gallo, cucumber, avocado, wasabi, fresh ginger, sake, rice and a pinch of code. 



Water bags for water boys?

How nice of The Ambassador in Waikiki to provide Eco-friendly collapsible water bottles for their guests. Also, it’s a good branding opportunity, with the corporate logo decorating each one. I’ve gotta wonder, though, what the design team was thinking in selecting bright yellow as the base color. I think it’s pretty funny, so I’m kind of glad they did, but I’d have gone with light blue. I do plan to re-use them filled with a different flavor of water at our annual summer party. Select guests will appreciate that. The Ex-Texan, who agrees with me that they look like medical sample collectors, or maybe catheter bags, models them in the hotel elevator. As always, this is our opinion, only. Urine may vary…

Board boys are a bit bored…

IMG_3648 Why bored? Cause the waves are down today on the north shore of Oahu.

IMG_3620 And of course, in Waikiki, there are always fresh offerings at the statue of Duke Paoa Kahinu Mokoe Hulikohola Kahanamoku – aka “The Duke” and “The Big Kahuna.”
IMG_3677 Born in 1890, he lived until 1968. Widely revered among surfers as the most important popularizer of the ancient sport, he was also a five-time Olympic champion swimmer with three gold and two silver medals to his credit.

Waikiki brunch and a bit of olden daze sex…

Nice view! Waikiki beach. When the ex-Texan was here many years ago when he was in the Navy, he met a young Hawaiian guy and they had sex. In the surf and again under a banyan tree. Ex-Tex sure couldn’t take his new pal back to the ship and the boy still lived with his parents. So beach and bushes it was! IMG_3616Mymymymymymy Papaya!IMG_3615Fried Rice. Nice!IMG_3618Peace. Love. Barbecue and eggs Benedict. All at the Outrigger overlooking Waikiki beach. Later: pics of sweet-looking beach boys!
