Yes, please go on Kgirl. I find this fascinating.

Kgirl, I loved living there, but after a year I knew the end of my marriage was near. Shortly after coming back home to Boston, he died in Hawaii. He is buried there. He moved to Haleiwa after I came home and lived with a woman. Fine with me. She buried him. She let my son know four months later.

When Greg started school there he went to the Lincoln School. We lived at the Domino Apartments right across the street from the Punahu School, which was started by missionaries from Boston for their children. Since we came from Boston, Poo was eligible to attend. I really wanted Poo to get the feel of living in Hawaii. And I saw the snobbishness of the kids that came out the doors each day. I didn't want a child like that. He had already learned the Chukah sign. And I was fine with that. I was quite all right with him becoming immersed with the life style.

Yup! The Bus stopped right outside the side entrance. I used to catch it across the street at the school on my way to my job as a Menihuni. Yes, I am that short. Enough so that I fit into their uniforms. I worked for just a short while in that job. I am not cut out to have the patience with tourists that thought I was so cute. From that job I got a job transcribing notes for a doctor that performed autopsies on stillborn or babies that died in infancy. I would take my recorder down to Ala Moana Beach and sit there transcribing until it was time to go home in time for Poo to get home. Or I would go sit out by the pool at the YW just down the street with a bunch of the women and transcrible.

One of the good things about living there is if we lived across the street, Poo would have gone to a different school. But instead he got to attend the Lincoln School that all the kids of the professors from UOH kids went to. So they were given a slightly more advanced education. And Poo was smart enough to fit right in.

Thank you so much. I know what Meli Kalikimaka means, but what does He Makana mean?

Pirate is sitting here watching me listen with the headphones on. Wants to know why my eyes are tearing up. The music and harmony are so beautiful. I have this earmarked and will be coming back quite often.

You were very fortunate to be a part of this.

Oh my gosh Kgirl, I enjoyed that so very much..just beautiful, especially the final number, with the girls in the green and black dresses. Yes, I did watch it all. Were you also a performer? What a wonderful school, and how many students attended then and now?
