    So sorry for your loss. Sending some smoke (not vog) your way from Kona. I would be heartbroken.

    Mahalo. We are. Times like these I like to focus on the positive things in our lives. We miss the little guy.

    Darn, really sorry for your loss. He seemed a great little fella:)
    I lost a cat to an idiot going twice the limit in a residential area.
    It's hard not to hate these people.

    All the best from far away Germany - I'll raise a glass tonight for your buddy!

    Thank you and Aloha from Hawaii. It’s no fun picking up a friend off the pavement, sorry about your cat.

    Cheers!

    I cannot believe someone running over an animal of any kind and not stopping to check for the animal itself and, at the very least and from a selfish perspective, possible damage to the vehicle. What a jerk! Sorry for your loss.

    Wishing you comfort, it is not easy to lose an animal who is part of your family. We had to put down our cat this year, but to have it happen the way it happened to yours is hard.

    Thanks for the kind words. Our family is definitely missing him. It’s never easy losing a friend.

    6AD37FB5-6E02-492B-B614-464F946A7FCB.jpeg Drove down to a valley today to fish and enjoy the land.

    I have been really enjoying this TOPS Puukko. It’s an absolute joy to play with, and fun to make drumsticks from Milo wood for the kids to play with.

    I carried this Kershaw Knockout in my surf shorts while fishing, then cleaned a few fish with it. It’s definitely not H1 steel, as it corroded within hours. That said, I like the edge stability it offers.

    This spotting did not come out after using WD40 and a rag. It’s all good though, and I learned that this is not the right tool for saltwater fishing for me.

    On the bright side, the swedge worked great for scaling, and the tip and belly worked awesome for cleaning fish.

    Oh, man. That hurts. That is how I lost my Mexican beagle, Pepe. That was twelve years ago, and I still feel it. You will miss him.

    We visited an old Church site to collect Kukui nuts off the ground.

    Carried this ZT in Elmax, but did not need it for any cutting, as the nut casing can be peeled by hand.
