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

Happy week, everybody.

Congrats to all! I know you are one proud Granny!
Certainly enjoy your weekly adventures! Carol (Lamy) Walker and I talk about you often and remember the crazy days at SGP! Let us know the next time you get back to NC! Been traveling myself lately-went to Maryland for my niece’s wedding. Long trip but fun to meet the new family members and being with most of my family. take care and let me hear from you when you get back to Fiji.
Love and hugs,
Thanks heaps, Libbie! I tried writing you a few months ago and the email bounced. No idea why. I’m glad all is well with you. Hugs for you and loving greetings to Carol when you talk. Kim
Congratulations! Welcome to the world, Austin Hō’aka’oli Isaac Whippy! You are the best “fauna” to appear on this blog!
Thank you so much, Karolyn. (That was my feeling, too.)
Kim, what a sweet baby. I guess that was why you made he trip. Have fun in Hawaii, and congratulations on the new baby. Larry
Thanks, Larry. He is exactly why I’ve taken a 10 week vacation away from the farm.
