Summer Off To a Bit of a Rocky Start

So, let’s fix it!

King Kamehameha Statue on Kam Day, 2008

I know everyone is busy so I am extending the deadline for the upcoming Carnival of Aloha to midnight this coming Friday.

For anyone who has been ill, overworked, or who just plain forgot, come join us and share in some of the fun that makes always makes a Monday just a little bit better!

The statue of King Kamehameha was draped beautifully this year for Kamehameha Day! I caught it at a bad time of the day for picture taking but the flowers looked beautiful! There was a lot more greenery sharing the stage this year which added a nice touch.

I’ve missed talking to all of you and chattering about things and events.  I certainly didn’t anticipate getting sick and being so out of sorts at the beginning of what’s supposed to be the season of summer fun and activities.

Things are better and I’m in the mood for a Carnival!  Perfect timing!  🙂   I have asked if anyone would like to have themes for our monthly carnival and I’m more than happy to entertain any ideas or thoughts any of you may have!

Here are some thoughts for themes:

  • Hawaiian Nights (evening events or natural evening occurrences)
  • Back to the Aina (nature posts about hikes, scenery, flora and fauna, etc.)
  • Politics (useful for the upcoming season)
  • Water! (beaches, waterfalls, etc. for fresh or salt water… or even swimming pool posts)
  • Roads and vehicles (traffic-related, automobiles, motorcycles, etc.)
  • Sports (any kind — football, paddling, running, parasailing, horseback riding, whatever)
  • Hawaiiana (cultural and historical posts about our home)

Let me know what you guys think.  Don’t worry, we will always accept submissions, even if they missed the theme, so it wouldn’t be exclusive.

Anyway, let me know if you have thoughts and send in your submissions by Friday at midnight (HST) for the Carnival going live on Monday!

    Perhaps lets us know what the theme is at the beginning of the month for next time? We could post something appropriate with time to write a decent posting.

    (Besides, I already have my submission in;)

    Hi Andrew! That’s what I meant. Themes would be for future Carnivals. The upcoming one is just as it has always been. It’s just an idea and if people don’t show much interest in the theme idea, we won’t do it at all. 🙂 I just thought some people would like to have themes occasionally. I did get your submission and I thank you!
