  1. Ugly win for the Wolves last night over Brooklyn. Naz and NAW, particularly, couldn't throw it in the ocean. But a win is a win.

    Montae Morris seems to be settling in. So there's a positive.

  2. Heading back to mainland tomorrow. Managed to hang with the big 'scopes on both Haleakala (Maui) and Mauna Kea (Big Island), so two of Earth's three largest mountains. The weather on Mauna Kea wasn't all that chilly, but the cirrus clouds moved in and put a damper on most of the viewing.

    We stopped by the southernmost point in the US today as well as Kilauea, although a light mist started falling while there so the steaming crater visibility was dampened.

      1. Oooh, those are very sharp.

        My friend from the Big Island (who introduced me to loco moco in grad school) got married on Oahu the same year the Poissonnière was born. Rather than pack a full outfit for the wedding, I flew out with some linen pants and hit a vintage shop for a quality aloha shirt, where I discovered I’m a pullover-style fella and that once you aloha your formalwear, you never want to wear a suit & tie again.

        1. Oh, when I was in the shop there was a dude looking for a shirt to wear to a funeral. I was both envious and sad for my fellow customer and then sad for the rest of us who are bound by society's rules on what constitutes dressed up. I now own several Sig Zane shirts mostly purchased on eBay from folks who bought on the island and then discovered the island didn't translate to Peoria well.
