Rural Sat.

It's becoming a habit. On Saturdays I go down to my Parentals place and chillax ... only if my mum is home or my brother. If not, I house hop between there, here and Michelles. Hubba enjoys being a farmer too, so when she and Tyler woke up from their 3 hour nap .. we headed down the road.
The fruit trees at my grandmothers are pumping.
These are white flesh peaches.

Plums. Last year they were the size of golf balls. The year before, baseballs.


The boys went camping at Waimarama with the Elders Quorum lastnight. That ish is right up my brothers alley. He's like a dooms day prepper with the bare essentials.
For Aunty Ness.

Ice-block season.

Dos ninos, tres piernas y sin orejas.

Kong - the red nose pittbull.

Salty-Boy found the camp butter.

In 2 months, the green will change to brown as the dry season begins.

The farmers ute. His dogs are away being trained to hunt pigs. That's the only reason he got the ute. To take his dogs pig hunting. I shot a pigeon today. Screamed as it fell from the tree and apologsed to it, but they are pests. Very thankful that Tashi is gangsta and picked it up and took it away.

All Blacks carved it up tonight against the Wallabies.
Sam Cane a man after my own heart. The All Blacks may not need McCaw after tonight.
I've blasphemed.
I didn't mean what I said about McCaw.

Mealamu, what a legend.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
