Thursdays With Bro.C

Happy, happy Wally and Brother C. as they strum and sing all kinds of songs. Let's see today it was Aloha'oe, Hawaii Aloha, Tiny Bubbles (in Hawaiian), You'll Never Find Another Kanaka Like Me. Bro. C is so thrilled that Wall is learning to play and embracing the culture. We learn so much as we talk story, talk missionary work and enjoy each others company.

How creative these Hawaiians are. This is a picture of a Papaya tree being trained to stay short so the fruit will be in reach and can be picked without a huge ladder. We've seen these buckets on lots of trees but thought people had just hung their buckets without thinking. Who knows why?

You can see all this beautiful fruit that will be ready to be picked just when it starts to turn yellow. Mmmm, love Papaya when it is still firm but sweet, not too ripe. It is good sprinkled with lime juice.

The reason I wanted to tell you about Papayas is because after our discussion today Bro. C gave us this one from his tree that will be ready to eat in about 2 days. Can't wait! We will surely miss all this wonderful fruit when we come home.
