2016-05-12 Mom and Pregnant Clara  Cr

I’m in Hawaii.  This is what I came to.

2016-05-19 Baby AHI  R

This is what I came for!

He will be 4 days old this evening, and he finally got his name this morning: Austin Hō’aka’oli Isaac Whippy.   The Hawaiian name means Elicits Joyous Laughter, and is a nod to his Uncle Akka among others.

There’s nothing else in my camera this week except this sorry photo of a really interesting natural feature.

2016-05-16 Cloudy Mountain  Cr

The hospital where WhatAreWeGonnaCALLhim? was born is situated in the beautiful rugged mountains to the east of Honolulu.   The view from Clara’s window was of this mountain.  I was waiting for the cloud to clear – and it didn’t.  Not for two whole days.  Why would just one mountain have a little cloudy tam  o-shanter while all its equally tall neighbors have sunny peaks?

Mysteries, mysteries.

Happy week, everybody.

  2. Congratulations! Welcome to the world, Austin Hō’aka’oli Isaac Whippy! You are the best “fauna” to appear on this blog!
