Cloud 9

I was heading up to Kula at sunset and had to take a moment to appreciate the view. We’re in the middle of some wet & windy weather and the lower elevations of Haleakala were a good vantage point to observe the clouds. The rain is a welcome respite as we are in drought upcountry and the normally lush slopes are parched and slightly jaundiced in appearance. By Sunday I’ll look at the same landscape and it will be covered in healthy new fuzz of green grass(cue Tom Jones;Green, green grass of home).

Lano: Funny you should mention that! Years ago when I lived in San Francisco, my best pal Jules & I went to see Tom Jones in concert…..’for our mothers’ we told ourselves. It was classic, we were sure he had a sock in his pants coz even in our seats his profile was a bit ‘excessive’! Woman of all ages offered up their knickers to him and he casually mopped his brow with the thongs and granny pants alike. Blimey one can only wonder what he does with all those excess undies

Flogs them on ebay I shouldn't wonder:-) Or, wraps them up nicely as a gift for his long-suffering wife........

Lucky you having a drought, England is under water from North to South and East to West. Yorkshire suffered v. badly last month and this month it's the Midlands.

I'm away to the west coast to St Annes on Sea in Lancashire this a.m. with a five day forecast of ONE reasonable day........ I'm taking three books, embroidery and paints and am in a double room with single occupancy UNLESS I get lucky :-)

Is that why we have a Tom Jones Poster in our office...you know the one above your desk?

Sharon said...

Mater: Have a jolly holiday and may the force be with you for double occupancy!

Nancy: I’ll take my Tom Jones down if you get rid of your Roger Daltry.
