Our OKTOBERFEST dinner consisting of beer-cooked & grilled brats with German mustard, German potatoes with bacon and Rotkohl - cooked red cabbage! Since it was the last day of Oktober, we finished it in Über-style! Es hat gut geschmeckt!!
These two pictures were taken only a few days apart...I am amazed at the color change in the leaves! I am so thankful that my little tree has such joyful color in the Fall!!! Hooray!!

Let me introduce you to:
The State Fish of Hawai'i
Whadd'ya mean I need a nose job??
These fish move SO fast that it is difficult to get a good picture of them! Plus, you're taking the picture through thick glass or plexiglass, so the images are slightly distorted.
I just LOVE the picture I got of this sea turtle! "Hey dudes! Catch the wave!"
I thought this was precious of this little girl with her face on the glass looking up in awe at the sight of so many things swimming around!
"HOO HA HOOHAHA"

This is the view from our lanai at Napili Kai Beach Resort! Simply lovely!
Could this hibiscus be anymore beautiful??
On one of the nights we were at Napili, there was a concert featuring Hawai'ian Slack Key Guitar Masters. Here, pictured with John, are "Uncle" George Kahumoku, Jr. (left) and
"Uncle" Cyril Pahinui (right). They were really wonderful to watch
and their music was excellent!
Watch for more pictures!!!
Mahalo and Aloha!!

Ichiro was warming up right in front of where we were sitting, and he was really fun to watch! Richie Sexson ("Big Sexy") was also doing some warm-up sprints and so we had quite a pre-game show to watch! The Mariners fell behind to the Kansas City Royals during the game, but ended up winning it 5-4 in the bottom of the 8th...it was VERY exciting!
No, we aren't admiring Kerry's tan line on her arm...if you have a magnifying glass, you can see that she is holding an EMT-delivered icepack in her right hand...a foul ball came screaming our direction and would have landed right in my lap, but a gentleman sitting in front of me stuck out his hand...the ball deflected off of his hand and clobbered Kerry right in the arm! Then, as we were all wondering where the ball had landed, I looked down and there it was at my feet, just sitting there as if it had been there for hours! All of the sudden, our same gentleman friend AND my step-mom-in-law lurched for it at the same time! As they both had their claws into it and were tugging it in opposite directions, our gentleman friend said, "Just let go and I'll let you have it!" Mom responded by releasing her death grip on the ball, and as promised, he handed it over!! Now there's a story to tell over & over again at the RV park!!! We all had a pretty good laugh over it, but Kerry had a bruise for a good week afterward!!

Pictured here is our newest acquisition: Jeff Weaver...this could be fun, sports fans!!
We're toying with heading down to the desert for some sun and some serious outdoor baseball at its best...spring training with the Mariners! Nuthin' could be sweeter!!

Added on top of the snow and ice that we've been dealing with for the
past week, it's a lovely picture, but scary to drive on!
Hopefully, all things (schools, businesses, etc.) will be back to
near-normal tomorrow! This is getting somewhat stale!!
However, it will probably take a few days for all of the ice to melt...
welcome to THE BIG THAW, Pacific Northwest style!

Looking out over the back deck with 5-6 inches on the railing...
Aren't these trees just gorgeous? You gotta love it!!!
