The beautiful apricot-colored hibiscus are no more at the Vorfeld home, but a rich, new hibiscus is a close second. There's so much rain and sun and rain and sun in the mountains above Kailua-Kona, and plants love the cycle. So do I. I'm reveling in the rain after a very dry summer in the Phoenix area.

Another delight of visiting Hawaii is the chance to enjoy my grand-cats, Moe Moe, Meow Meow, and Mimi. They are beautiful, vigorous, and often hilarious. The above photo is of Moe Moe. Mimi, who was here first, always joins Ted when he brushes his teeth. She parks by the sink and laps at the water dripping from the faucet. She also climbs very high in the kitchen, which has vaulted ceilings. I'll have a photo of her later. Gorgeous gal.
There's something so special about hydrangeas that are moving toward the full-bloom mode. The range of colors and shapes of the tiny buds simply thrills my soul. I'm spending time with family in Holualoa, and this is one of my first pictures.
You may not find what you want, but again, you may. David Crook, my brother, has organized a lot of elementary school pictures, mostly in the 1950s, and more people are sending him their old photos as well. David used Picasa as a place to showcase these photos. Here's what he has : Campus Elementary School Silver Beach Elementary School Geneva Elementary School Columbia Elementary School Larrabee Elementary School Lincoln Elementary School Birchwood Elementary School Fairhaven Elementary School Whatcom Jr High Included in this group are a few other Bellingham School District and reunion photos. Some show old parades, mostly Whatcom, in the downtown Bellingham of yesteryear. It's fun to see David and buddy/neighbor Don Varney sitting together through the years. They were always close. Still are. Both live in the Phoenix area today.
