Manana Island Watercolor by OLGA SHEVCHENKO

Manana Manana - (Rabbit Rabbit in Hawaiian)
It is the first of the month and so I wish everyone good luck in the month of July.

Manana Island is located on the Windward side of O'ahu, north of Makapu'u Point. The shape of the island actually resembles a rabbit but it was named Rabbit Island because rabbits actually live there after a rancher released the animals there. Today the island serves as a seabird sanctuary.

The Bear has been in Hawaii for the past month, caring for his busy 3 year old granddaughter. This has allowed his eldest pregnant daughter to maintain her mandatory bed rest, as she awaits the birth of her second child.

Aloha honey.

Tibbar, tibbar, as usual.

I thought it was from the Spanish manana (manyana), which would be a great place to live, at least in this heat. But I don't, so I better get busy.

I have been a bad blogger ):
But I'm going to be better (:
Do be a do bee, right?

Karen - I thought we left that ear worm over at Doug's Day post.

Hi Terry, it just occurred to me that you might misunderstand the "queer" talk between me and my daughter on her bird blog. She and I do that all the time. (She's gay you know that, right?) Just wanted you to know that we're not "like that."

TLP said...

No, not 3D. It's AP3. Yep. We've all met the Dawg. Love him!

tsduff said...

TLP - who couldn't love that guy? I mean, really?
