I was so happy to hear from you. I welcome you into my circle of friends and into my extended ohana.
Alaska?? Wow, I thought Iowa was the cold!!! Oh my lord, how are you doing in the extreme cold???
What a way to introduce yourself to cold weather bradda??? :)
I can actually say we're warm here, huh!! It's 22 degrees outside and the sun is shining.
I'm moving back home next year Sept., and I'm looking forward to eating "everything" I've missed.
Anyway Kalani, I hope to hear from you again bradda and take care,
My name is Nalani and I was born in Honolulu. I believe we may be ohana, from my father's side his name is James Kahooilihala Jr. and he now lives on the Big Island in Papaikou.
My tutuman from Honolulu now deceased lived in Papakolea on Kalili Place and his name was John Nihi Jr.
I would be honored to be a friend. I look forward to hearing from you.
PS I have lived in the mainland for 32 yrs. unfortunately had no one to speak to in hawaiian. So now, I'm not good at translating it. :)
