Luau date night

We are at Shaka's chevron tonight for a Hawaiian party.  We ate dinner consisting of rice, ginger chicken, Hawaiian pork, fruit, and pineapple cake. Afterwards we were entertained with a hula hoop contest, fire dancer, and hula dancers. Now we ate waiting for the outdoor movie of "hotel Transylvania". What a strange date for Idaho! Fun too!!

Anyone need cucumbers, peppers, or yellow squash? I am ready to start dumping them on the neighbors porches!

Tony at the Chukars game

Today was spent doing mundane things.  Em and I got a batch of apples into the dehydrator, I got my blood sugar and cholesterol checked, canned a batch of green beans, and watched an episode of Hoarders. Then tony and I went to IF for dinner at the temple, an endowment session, and the last inning of a ball game. I also took extra veggies to several of my neighbors.  I have a pretty good life!

PowWow at Fort Hall

Today we went to Fort Hall and watched the grand entrance at their 50th annual pow-wow.  It was very interesting.  As it began and the drumming and chanting escalated, I was touched and had tears in my eyes.  It was so beautiful and fierce and it made me sad to see how native Americans live today compared to the free, proud, nations that once were.  We also went to "Chubbuck Days" and ate tamales and spam sushi in the park.  When we got home one of our chickens, Bill, was missing.  I accidentally left the door unlatched and they were out.  A few minutes later the neighbors came over in tears because their dog had killed Bill.  I felt bad because I left the door open and because the neighbors felt so bad. Poor Bill. Other than that it was a fun day.
