Pre-Season game.

Towing my camera and lens across a field only to find I forgot my compact flash card. No photos today, but it's ok .. it was a boring game apart from a nice dummy pass by the local South African and a try.

MAC lost 17 - 20 and that score isn't bad.

My only complaint is .. there are too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Perhaps if the team stopped telling eachother what to do and work together, it would not have been a loss. Lucky these next few games are tests and don't count towards the final tally, but if it's any indication of the season ahead, they're going to need Jesus.

As for the manangement.
One wasn't there and the other did circles around the field not saying much as he passed our half.
Early days.

The opposing team was Guildfords home team. After his stand down he's been welcomed back into the open arms of the Crusaders, who play tonight. The loss could have been worse had he been playing today. He's a fantastic drunk, but he's an even better rugby player (especially when running with Dagg).

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!
