Saw Jason et al last night. It was Jane's birthday and Joel stopped on the way home from work and got her balloons and flowers. I was impressed. Jellie had to tell me all about how she swam with the fishes at Hanauma Bay, and Jason had to explain to her the more New Jersey meaning of swimming with the fishes. They stayed in Waikiki, just like we did when he won that trip, and drove all over the big island and went to the pineapple plantation just like we did, except that now it sounds like more fun since we were there, with a maze and other things. They brought us some chocolate-covered macadamia nuts, which are always welcome.
It is now the second day of my little vacation and I am going to stay put and putter. I have already finished my two afghan squares for the day (current count: 28) so will try to get back into sewing. Maybe I should go check out more videos to help this process.
When I came home from Jason's last night, saw another clump of neighbors standing in the street gossiping, no doubt about the recent drug bust. Nothing like a little police action to bring about neighborly togetherness.
