The haircut.

Larry got a haircut today. I was supposed to take him to his usual barber in Hastings before we left, but we left sooner than we anticipated. I took him to a barber in the closest mall. Three Indian guys who barely spoke English were the hairdressers. As we sat waiting I'd listen to the other clients when it came their time for cutting. They knew what they were talking about. "A three on top and a two on the sides", "Three all over" and so on.

When Larrys time came, he sat in the chair and said "Long on top, short on the sides". The hairdresser didn't understand this and after a few minutes of trying to understand eachother I hear Larry finally say "Cut it like yours".

Before I could protest, he was already getting what I found out was a "2" all around his head. I text my sister swear words as I watched because she suggested the place.

The guy had a faux hawk and my blind husband couldnt see that.

I'd say this is a perfect example of what a wife is for, but it would only be perfect if he didn't have a faux hawk.

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!
