    Well, les see. Locally, in this part of Polynesian Mexico, Thanksgiving is not a big deal. But for us expats, we still find a way to celebrate.

    First uaifi and matapule go for a 1 hour walk in the desert while it still cool and watch sunrise. Den matapule come back an kaukau some faka'afe. Den matapule have meeting wit client. Den matapule off to Spanish class wit fai'ako Margarito. Den matapule kai more faka'afe. Den matapule telephone ongo ta'ahine fefine in California where dey have eating turkey togedder and answer question, "how make turkey?" Den off fo' grocery shopping wit uaifi. Den taimi fo' matapule beauty rest. Den matapule get clean up fo' BIG faka'afe and put on bes' ta'uvalu. Den matapule and uaifi go Hilton fo' BIG faka'afe Thanksgiving at 6pm wit friends from Seattle. Matapule go eat self silly at Hilton to keep matapule size fo' sure.

    !Oiaue! matapule hab busy Thanksgiving fo' sure!

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING, HT OHANA

    ďLet us rise up and be thankful, for if we didnít learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didnít learn a little, at least we didnít get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didnít die; so, let us all be thankful.Ē

    Happy Thanksgiving 2009, everyone! Yes...2009! This past year has just been an illusion therefore I'm still working on...2009!

    I have family in town so we're joining friends at the Hale Koa for brunch. Then it's off to the home of other friends for a potluck feast. No more food 'til Thanksgiving...2010!

    Happy Thanksgiving to all, especially Aunty Lynn for all you you do for the community.
    Our family will be joining my youngest son at Helemano Plantation along with the other residents of ORI for a buffet lunch. Then I bring him home to join the rest of the ohana for a joyous family dinner at my sister in law's home out Kaneohe way.

    Went for a walk this morning. Forgot about the Turkey Trot, though, so I had to alter my route.

    Looking forward to a celebration later today. Going to bring a caprese salad as my contribution. Even found mozzarella that was pre-sliced, to help me in my goals of not injuring myself with a knife before the grand meal even begins. Only problem--need to look up online how to cut tomatoes. As far as I know, they don't come pre-sliced (unless I buy a bunch at a salad bar or something!)

    Or you can get smaller tomatoes.

    For myself I just came back from shopping at Don Quijote, will be making some turkey cold cut sandwiches for lunch.

    After that just working around the home catching up on some stuff. Will be feasting later on today.

    Back from a very nice meal #1 <belch>, decompressing, changing clothes, packing up our potluck contribution and heading out to what promises to be a very fun meal #2 <fut!>. Lotsa salad ingredients in the fridge for the rest of the long week-end. <zzzzzz>

    I really got my fat kid on tonight, I threw down, and then almost up.


    I miss holidays in the 808. . .this cold crap is WAY over rated.

    I have a LOT to be thankful for, and really has a great day. I hope all of my ohana here sis the same. I will get pics of food up soon

    My Hawaiian family, Ka'a'awa's Carter's, always show their true Aloha for this haole boy (the only one ever allowed into their circle), and again made this year the best. Hawaii has been very very good to me, and the warm hearts this family shares is a big part of it.

    I really appreciate your post D'Alani. For those who know, the past few days have taken a lot out of me. Grey hairs have sprung up spreading like wild fire. Stress can do that. I come from a Ohana that is strong. Yesterday, I wanted to cry and be held by my loved ones. They didn't give me the chance to break down. I kept laughing from the start to finish. There was no time to talk politics nor about what's happening currently. I smiled.


    I made Turkey Chook this morning. My grandkids running around my hale. MAMA holding Ezekiel. I'm thankful for everything. Especially, having my loved ones back from the Middle East.

    Just wanted to report that Continental served turkey sandwiches yesterday as meal/snack #2 on the flight from NY/Newark to Honolulu yesterday. There was no mention of whether this was in commemoration of the Thanksgiving holiday.

    I will be running it again. Think this will be the 8th time I've entered; I have successfully finished the other 7 HNL 26.2s I've entered. No aspirations for my overall time this year other than to finish it!
