Here in Hawaii, everyone knows that “black” dogs are not safe around Filipino men. It has been rumored that these dogs are a delicacy and maybe it’s true, because not many are seen in communities having a large Filipino base such as Kalihi, Waipahu and Ewa Beach. Basically, if your pet “black” dog goes missing, go knock on the door of Mr. Macadangdang’s house.
For the longest time, I thought this black dog thing was a myth, but I am now convinced there might be some truth to it. Here’s why.
My Filipino neighbor across the street got a black dog several days ago. He said it was for his kids. Sounded reasonable until I asked him what he had named the dog. His reply, “DINNER.”

I'll bet the owner of this car won't be full of good cheer when he or she returns and sees this.
Then again, the owner could be on the hefty side and balance things out. Oh look, there she is taking a break.

This past Friday I went to my favorite low rent seniors condo to fix a leaky toilet for a female tenant that has got to be 85 plus years and is lucky to break four feet in height. This condo is about 95% women and is the type of place I'll be looking for when I get old. Whenever I do repairs for these women, they are always so thankful and often will offer me drinks and snacks. I didn't say "snatch," I said snacks! I could do free repairs for them and they could reciprocate by changing my diaper when needed. Anyway, I found the toilet tank had a hairline crack and set an appointment with her to replace it on Monday.
Saturday morning I received a phone call from the resident manager and he tells me the toilet exploded. Say what!!!.....Exploded??? He tells me the toilet tank is in a million pieces. At present, I'm on another maintenance call but promise to get there as soon as I can.

Goody, more lunch money for today.

When I get there, I asked the lady what happened. She tells me she got up in the middle of the night and had to wee. While sitting on the pot, she fell asleep, and I surmised that her weight pushing on the cracked tank caused it to break apart. She said she awoke completely soaked and water was going everywhere. The amazing part is that she had presence of mind to reach down and close the water supply valve.
I would have given my left

to have seen this happen.

GEEZ!!! I don't remember this. Was I drugged?
I must say, the expression on Hannah's face......PRICELESS.


I'm usually for less government involvement when it comes to private enterprise, but when it comes to the airline industry, I'm about ready to support re-regulation. With regards to air fares, consumers don't stand a chance if they aren't lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time. Case in point. Four days ago, I found a summer 59 day round trip fare from Hawaii to Chicago for $432. That's right, $432. I was stoked! Although I thought this couldn't be true, I pressed the buy button. Last year, I found a fare for $518. which I thought was great, but ATA went belly up before the trip and I ended up paying $695. for the same trip on another airline. So in my mind, because of this great fare, something catastrophic will happen before the trip.

I'm just hoping I don't go "belly up."
Here's where it gets interesting. Today, just four days later, the same trip now goes for $995. What the hell happened in four days to cause the price to more than double???!!!
Hence, time for

to re-regulate.

And while you're at it, would you please include bringing back a few of these.
