Hawaii

Dog Day Afternoon

The Malt was itching for an excursion. He was tired of being cooped up because of hurricane and tropical storm warnings. The Alpha Japanese Female (AJF) and I decided to indulge the whims of the small white dog and take him on an excursion to his favorite places. We started […]

Prepared Pup

No, this is not a recipe for freshly prepared pup. This is Hurricane Preparedness Pup. Update August 7 mid-afternoon: things are looking positive as Iselle diminishes to a tropical storm. Too soon to get cocky, though. The storm should reach the Big Island of Hawaii this evening and get to […]

Storms Coming – Tie Down the Malt!

This week, Hawaii faces an unusual and ominous weather phenomenon; namely, we have two hurricanes lined up to pass over the islands within three days of each other. The first puffer, named Hurricane Iselle, is expected to down grade from the current Category 4 designation to a tropical storm by the […]

A Literary Dispute

This is not shaping up to be my week. On Sunday I tried to be heroic and only succeeded in humiliating myself in front of Uncle Fish and the security staff at the Pagoda Hotel.  Now I find I am again in the maison de chien  despite the best of intentions. Oh, […]
