Aunty’s Corner

Aloha, Aunty here. Well, it’s official, we have traffic jams.  I kid you not, on our way home from church, Aunty Didi and I decided to drive through town just to see what was happening.  We waited for what seemed like five minutes to turn onto the street by Bank of Hawaii because traffic was backed up all the way.  What a trip! I guess everyone was rushing to get to Misaki’s before it closed on Sunday.  

I’m sorry to see Subway go.  I love their coffee and the staff was so fun to talk with.  Another staff person I think is really great is Christy at the Drive Inn.  She is always smiling.

Aunty Gladys was telling us that there are ballroom dancing classes going on at Kulana ‘Oiwi.  I understand that this is to help the kupuna to dance at the Christmas ball that is held each year.  All ages are invited.  Have you gone? When I was a freshman in college I had to take a ballroom dance class. Who knew why but there we were, my girlfriend and I dancing as partners. 

When my daughter Wendy was leaving after her Molokai visit, we get to the airport and her wallet is missing! I race down the road, with an eye out for the police, tear up all the areas in my house looking for the purse and no luck.  She’s diabetic and without her purse had no money or food.  Fortunately, I make it back to the airport in time to give her my very squished tuna salad sandwich from my lunch.  She is passed by TSA from here onto Maui, where she was allowed to board and make it home.  Too much stress, I tell you.  Her wallet was at Friendly’s.  

I’m looking for a love seat in good condition that unfolds into a bed.  If you know of one, let me know here at the Dispatch.  Also, I’m looking for someone who knows how to start Jade plants.  My friend Rosie has the most beautiful arbor full of them and I want to start one from her plant.  Please let me know if you, or someone you know, can help me transplant one.

The Molokai Dispatch staff will be doing the Relay for Life.  I’m so excited.  I’ve never done this before.  It’s for such a good cause.  See you there!

Ua lawa paha kēia a hui hou kākou [this is perhaps enough until we meet next time].  Aloha no, Aunty Kapua

    Dear Aunty,

    Easy: break a large, succulent leaf off a healthy jade plant, and place it in a small pot of good soil. Tuck the stem end, the broken-off part, into the soil a little bit. Water, and water again every few days.

    Jade plants drop leaves themselves and they sprout. My favorite (and now huge) jade plant started as a fallen volunteer 20 years ago.

    Aloha!
