Unusual Sighting of Kona Critters in Hawaii

This is unusual for me to see because I don't live in a neighborhood in Sacramento that is overrun by wild turkeys or black witch moths. In fact, I had never seen a black witch moth before in my life until I spotted this huge insect thing attached to our lanai. I am very cognizant, or at least I try to be cognizant, of critters that appear out of nowhere.

High alert, I call it. Because you never know when a fat cockroach will run across the floor or a lizard will fall on your head or you might step on a humongous slug barefoot.

Nobody really wears shoes if they don't have to, but there is a good reason, in many cases, to have shoes on your feet. Shoes give you the opportunity to quickly squash the baby geckos, which emerge without warning from under warm places. So, with that I bring you today's blog: Black Witch Moth and Wild Turkeys in Kailua-Kona.

Once Again, Returned to Sacramento from Kona
What I reiterate in my personal blog about today about the journey to Sacramento from Kona will not apply much, I predict, in the future. Primarily because Alaska Airlines now has flights directly to Sacramento from Kona. Hawaiian Airlines does not… more
Clay Flowers at a Shop in Hawaii
I got so busy this morning that I forgot to post my blog. Between dealing with properly instructing guys who were about to apply sealer to my lanai, visiting with several friends and attending an HOA meeting, it was an easy thing to space out. That… more
Nothing Like a Visit to the Kona DMV
You've gotta admit, it is generally not the workers at the DMV who are the problem. It is the sysem established for handling the volume. I would think they would hire an efficiency expert or team to analzye the work-flow and to devise a system that… more
Who Has Never Been to a Dog Park?
OK, I raise my hand. When I had dogs a long, long time ago, in another life, dog parks did not exist. But, whoa, let me tell you what I discovered. Not that I'm in the market for a date because I am NOT, but if I were looking to pick up a guy, you… more
King Friday the 13th and Mister Rogers Neighborhood
One of the perks of being a frequent flyer between Sacramento and Kona is the opportunity to watch movies. Only because there is no WIFI on Hawaiian Airlines. Heck, this trip, Hawaiian Airlines didn't even send me an email to check in for my flight… more
How Often Does a Northern Flicker Land in Your Yard?
This is a bird I rarely see in Sacramento. Maybe because they don't much hang out in Land Park. Or maybe just not my yard. But yesterday I was very excited to have discovered a Northern Flicker prancing around my back yard. I could not get a better… more
There Has Never Been a Better Time to Stop Smoking
When you look back at how people once smoked everywhere, well, it would feel like you're in France. It is very hard to quit smoking when you're grabbing dinner at a smoke-fueled French brassiere with the patron next to you balancing a cigarette on… more
Two More Hawaiian Beaches to Expore
Yesterday was my last day in Hawaii for a while. At least until next month, anyway. Usually my last days are spent preparing to depart. Recharging my Ring, which this time I could not get off my gate. Looks like I will have to drill that baby out… more
My Favorite Beach in West Hawaii
We are packing up the house as I type this morning. I'm heading back to Sacramento to pick up more listings, and my houseguests, Josh and Vika, are flying out to Kauai for another week. Their families are arriving in Kauai for more activities. I… more
