Good 41º cloudy morning.
No radio coded for 10-24, 10-25, or 10-26....
Are you ready for Halloween? I know Devillary is!
Yesterday I worked on more Smileboxes and photos. It stayed cool and cloudy. By noon it was only 51º. Then we warmed to 60º. There was a visitor in the backyard, a pup named Nova. I brought her in and I called the number on the tag.
Dude is really a sweet dog and they got along well. Chased each other and played.
I didn't get any response from the number, I called twice, so did some investigating. Texted with two of the girls who work at my vet's office if the dog, Nova, sounded familiar. No. Then I called my plumber, Mike Artoff, as he had told me his friend sold the property just north of me and I asked him how to get onto the property. I drove up there, with Dude and Nova. First house they said the dog wasn't theirs, but belonged to the lady farther up the road. Success!!! Nova is home! Lila gave me her house phone, said her cell didn't work up there.
On Friday, our day #3 in Hawaii, we had a rental car and drove to the Kualoa Ranch to see the animals, petting zoo, and movie sets. Then we boarded a bus and Charis was our driver and guide. We went to the shore and took an ocean ride on a catamaran tour boat. There is one photo of Brian,Tucker, & Sami, and Jen taking their photo on the bow of the boat. Not long after that a wave came over the bow and drenched the man sitting by the window (you can see his hat in the photo)
Sometimes you just get a feeling about people, and I had this one about Charis. He sat next to me on the ocean ride and we chatted. I told him about my stint with LASD and showed him my retired badge. He then showed me his badge, Hawaiian Federal Marshal:
After the boat ride we went to the Boyodo-In Temple and Cemetary. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byodo-In_Temple
Sami, Tucker, and Brian rang the gong. There was Buddha. There were many cats there. We were told that lots of people come there and feed the cats.

I put a sirloin steak drizzled with olive oil and pepper into the Air Fryer for 6 minutes at 400º then added in some olive oil drizzled and garlic salted artichoke hearts and a piece of buttered bread for another 6 minutes... PERFECT!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.
