Uh, sorry guy.

I know this is old, but it made everyone laugh really hard at Thanksgiving.  Go Minnesota.  Happy Thanksgiving.  Happy Aloha Friday

Chinaman’s Hat

Mokoliʻi Islet, “Chinaman’s hat” Hawaii 2007

Looking through some old pictures, listening to some old music.  This week has been a great one.  Happy Aloha Friday, everyone.

I have lived so many lives, though I’m not old.

Spread the Aloha

It is really easy to get caught up in my “first world problems”.  This morning I decided to treat myself to a bagel with pumpkin coffee.  Hands full, I stood in front of my car with my remote lock, frustrated that it wasn’t unlocking.  Then I realized that it wasn’t my car.  Just the same color.  Not even the same model.  Or make.

As the video says, “First world problems are not problems.”  I’ve never lived without clean water.  I’ve lived with limited access to clean water, but that just isn’t the same.  This video was a good kick-in-the-shins reminder that my life is never as ‘difficult’ as I think it is.  When I get a few extra dollars I promise I will remember to spread the aloha.

Happy Aloha Friday.
