Merrie Monarch Hula Festival 2014

This weekend, I have been officially distracted. The Merrie Monarch Hula Festival's first night of competition was Thursday, and last night of competition was last night (Saturday). All three night were on local TV; I was glued to it all three nights. I'm now beginning to try to catch up on everything that got sidelined by all the pretty hula. {SMILE}

If you want to see what I'm talking about, here's the official website: , and here's the TV broadcast: . It's supposed to have a way to view at least the previous night's competition. {Smile}

And I'm sorry I didn't mention this sooner. Blogger won't let me post thru Internet Explorer; I've been trying since Friday, and it won't load the compose-a-post page. I'm afraid I didn't think of trying thru Google Chrome until too late last night to try it. So far, that seems to be working. {cross fingers hopefully, Smile}

{indescribable look}

Remind me that I don't want a chimpanzee. {wry smile}

Tonight, we had flying termites in the dining room and kitchen. Not a whole lot – it seems to be the first termite swarm of spring – but Dad and I were busy trying to kill them. Not that either of us are particularly good at catching termites, but the flying ones are the breeders, so we really want to kill them before they start new colonies in our house and our furniture. {wry look}

A few days ago, Dad got a magazine with a picture of a chimp catching flying termites. (Apparently termites are a chimp delicacy.) She was having a grand time, and far more success than Dad and I had tonight. However, chimps are strong enough, I'm sure one would do more damage to our furniture, house, etc. than even the termites. {wry chuckle, half-smile}
