A Thanksgiving memory

27 11 2014

My Friends ~ I am thinking the captain/DH and I should take a spin through the back roads of Kaaawa on our double bike this morning to smell all the turkeys being roasted in the neighborhood. A hurricane struck for Thanksgiving the first year I met him more than 30 years ago, the first time I returned from Kahoʻolawe. The power was out, but he had a gas oven he wasn’t using, so his neighbor brought her bird over to take advantage of its availability. Others kalua-ed their food in an imu. Whichever you celebrate — Happy Thanksgiving! or Lonoikamakahiki! — I wish for you and yours a wonderful and blessed day. Giving thanks. ~ Rebekah
