Hawaii (Part VI)

For the Super, it’s all about going to the beach . . .

November 29

[Ever been peed on by a moth? Enjoying a lie down on Roy’s swing chair this morning when I felt water hit my leg. Since the swing has a canopy, I wondered where it came from? Look at the upper left hand side – a moth as big as a Buick! At first I thought it was a bat!  On a lighter note, Roy bought a Google Chromecast yesterday. The three of us spent a couple of hours trying to get it to work this morning. Finally, the Super called Grandson Tom at Purdue and he had us up and running in a couple of minutes! When are they going to make this stuff “senior user friendly”?????  Oh, the Super got the gecko photo!]

[Say, would you bring me something cool in a glass – and then massage my feet?]

[After a long day circling the island, a day for sticking close to home . . . and visiting Roy’s nearby beach.]

[Roy grew up in Edinburg, Texas, about 20 miles from Mexico, and went to Pan American University there.  His hat reflects his cultural heritage – half Texican, half Mexican.  His German heritage is reflected in his ability to grill brats.]

[The beach is called White Sands or Magic Sands.  There’s also a third name I’ve forgotten.]

[Then, back home for dinner?  See, I can’t be held solely responsible for my current girth.]

Hey, people who travel with their bed pillow. You look insane.  ~  Jim Gaffigan

The Journey Begins Thanks for joining me! This is the follow-up to the original, “alexandriacardinals.wordpress.com,” which overwhelmed the system’s ability to handle it any more. Thus, this is “Part 2.” As the original was initially described: 10-26-07-4 “It all began in a 5,000 watt radio station in Fresno, California” . . . wait a minute, that was Ted Baxter on the Mary Tyler Moore Show! Let’s see . . . oh yeah, it all began in 2003 when retirees, i.e., old people, in Alexandria, Minnesota, who had no desire to become snow birds, went looking for mid-winter entertainment here in the frozen tundra of West Central Minnesota. We discovered girls’ high school hockey, fell in love immediately, and it remains our favorite spectator sport to this day. Initially, and for several years, reports on these games were e-mailed to those who were actually snowbirds but wanted to keep abreast of things “back home.” It was ultimately decided a blog would be more efficient, and it evolved into a personal diary of many things that attracts tens of readers on occasion. It remains a source of personal mental therapy and has yet to elicit any lawsuits. ~ The Editor, May 9, 2014 p.s. The photo border around the blog is the Cardinal girls’ hockey team after just beating Breck for the state championship in 2008. It’s of the all-tournament team. The visible Breck player on the left is Milica McMillen, then an 8th-grader – she is now an All-American for the Gophers. The Roseau player in the stocking cap I believe is Mary Loken, who went on to play for UND; and the Cardinal player on the right, No. 3, is Abby Williams, the player we blame most for making us girls’ hockey fans who went on to play for Bemidji State. *********************************************************************************** Photos contained herein are available for personal use. All you have to do is double click on any of the photos and they will become full screen size. You can then save them into your personal “My Pictures” file. They make lovely parting or hostess gifts, or holiday gifts for such as Uncle Ernie who wants to see how his grand niece is doing on the hockey team. If any are sold for personal profit, however, to, for example, the Audubon Society, National Geographic, Sven’s Home Workshop Monthly, Curling By The Numbers, or the World Wrestling Federation, I only request that you make a donation to the charitable organization of your choice. You have two hours and fifteen minutes. Pencils ready? Begin! **********************************************************************************
