    It always annoys me when I see signs that say Slow Children At Play.
    Is there no consideration for fast children? Are we only supposed to be careful around children who are, um, developmentally short-changed?

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    As taken from that old Andy Bumatai joke about Pohukaina School on 18th Avenue in Kaimuki.

    Taking the #56 Bus back to Honolulu on Saturday night, there was a lighted sign around the enterance to the Pali Highway that said "Low Hovering Helicopter".

    One has to wonder how low that helicopter is hoving such that cars driving on the Pali have to avoid from hitting it?

    A dandy website is www.hawaiihighways.com .
    There are lots of observations about roads and signs on the Islands.
    Some signs are survivors from long ago.

    I found this humorous considering the 5-0 behind me had obviously said nothing to the people already down in the valley or myself as I proceeded to climb over by Hanauma Bay where the famous "From Here to Eternity" kissing scene was filmed.

    If anyone on Oahu is NOT happy , feel free to trade places with me.

    One time ago my gf and I set off for Pahoa to do a photo shoot at the tree museum nearby.
    We had a great hamburger and fries.
    I misread a map and upon exiting Pahoa entered a long straight highway leading far away
    from my desire to return to Hilo
    After long drive I pulled over,attended to nature and reversed course.
    The odd thing I noticed was that upon backtracking, a pickup drove by with
    a german shephard at the wheel.
    I lost that roll of film.

    I never drive while impaired.
    That includes any amount of alcohol or marijuana.

    As far as I can tell the dog was sitting in the lap of human actually driving.

    Funny how this stuff keeps burping up from Puna.

    The left turn from Kam Highway into the road that leads to the Kaneohe Libary and the HPD Kaneohe Police station has a sign thet says:

    "Left Turn on arrow only."

    The two options on the light itself are a red arrow and a green arrow.

    I turned left on a red arrow, and a policeman stopped me. I said, that I followed the instructions, and turned left on the arrow - and he let me go.

    (WHEW!)

    You got very lucky!
    Since red anything obviously means stop, he could have got you good for that.

    The first sign confused me to no end when I first moved. It's in the middle of an intersection with small print and I had to read it about five times.

    The second one I saw at a gas station on the North Shore across from Ted's Bakery. It's my favorite. Supposed to read "Cash Customers Please Pay First".

    Can't think of anything creative this time
