Tunnel Line Out

Early morning.

Awesome registrar.

Longer than usual surgery.

Smooth exit.

Line out.

Removing the tissue from the dacron ball was the hard part.

The gaping hole.

Had to be hit with local shots every 10 minutes to numb the pain.


After surgery we went to visit my parentals. My mum told me to feed the bird. When I looked over at Floyds cage he wasn't on his perch. He has a skirt around the bottom half of his cage and sometimes he's poking around the bottom eating seeds. I joked that maybe he was dead.
Long story short .. Floyd was at the bottom of the cage very much so dead.

RIP Floyd.
Now we won't have to vacuum so much around that corner you messy freak.

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!
