Blood test Tuesday.

After a blood test today we went to get some lunch. I left Larry in the car and ordered, came back out to see him reading the yellow pages from a phone book that has been in the car for a week. He told me he was having a hard time reading from the book. I told him it probably didn't help that it was upside down. Even he laughed at himself. Almost as funny as the time my deaf Pops was vacuuming the kitchen floor and the vacuum wasn't on.

Everyone in the family has had the 24 hour bug. I had it yesterday and anyone in my path felt my wrath. I will not be eating sausages or grapes anytime soon. When you heave that stuff up through your mouth and nose, you taste it all over again.

We're staying home all day to watch the elections.
May the best man win.
God bless the USA .. and that one of my brothers may win the lotto tonight in Australia.

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!
