Just in from seeing Willy again!

I just got in from yet another Willie Nelson concert. He and his band played at his bar in Paia, Charley's. I can't wait to get the pics from a few people who had their cameras with them. Anyway, I'm super tired. Will write more soon.

Willie is here!

Finally, a day of good live music. Hoping to see a great show at the MAC today featuring Willie Nelson and Jack Johnson. Thanks to Kurt for driving his work van!!

I have a tennis match here shortly. I am trying to wake up right now. My roommate, Sasha, and I went up to Kapalua yesterday snorkeling. It was one of the two best snorkeling trips I've been on since I've been here. We made the mistake of drinking a beer with lunch which pretty much knocked me out!

The dust of Kihei has just about taken over my condo. We have decided that we must get some help trying to tame the dirt. My landlord cleans houses, so she is coming tomorrow to do a top to bottom cleaning. I figure it will last about 2 days and will be a mess again. Oh well. Worth a try.

Talked to Billy and Ethan for a few yesterday. Of course Billy was the same old sweetheart!! That was the first time I talked to Ethan in a really long time. Sounds like he is dong well. Just in from sailing a boat to Fla. from NY.

Well, I suppose I'll make some breakfast. Haven't been writing here too much lately so I thought I'd do a quick catch up. I have off Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving. My goal is to not spend money for awhile. I really have been ripping through it.

Happy Turkey Day to you!! Ciao, Susie

Halloween on Front Street, Ocean Kayaking...

I am way behind in my blogging. Guess it's a good sign that I've been too busy doing stuff to sit down and write about it! Go to
to see some shots of Halloween in Front Street if you haven't seen them already. These are Kurt's pics.. I ended up using a digital camera and haven't developed it yet. Contrary to what I look like in the photos, I had very little to drink that night. My eyes tell another story, but I swear I was so tired from the weekend that I barely indulged! There were so many awesome costumes... people really went all out. My fav group costume was "Studio 54" where a group of 10 or so dressed as different people at the bar.. bartender, bouncer, dancers, etc. and they had a disco ball hanging over them, a turn table, and a rope around the whole group. It was awesome! Don't ask about Kurt's friend "Clowny", as there is no logical explanation.

Fast forward to today, 11/12... I went ocean kayaking for the first time today! It was so sweet. A friend's landlord was at the same beach that we were today (Turtle Town) and had 2 kayaks that he let us use. I loved it! A sea turtle came up to see us while we were out in the middle of the ocean.

Tonight I'm heading to Willie Nelson's place, Charley's, up in a small hippie town called Paia with a bunch of girls. I am getting ready to take a nap and will probably drive separately b/c I have a singles match in the morning that I want to be ready for. Me, playing singles.. should be interesting.

I have decided I want to write a children's book with Hawaiian flare, and I've asked my friend Kimberly to draw the pictures. If it works out, I could retire by age 33!! For real, if we pull it off it could be quite profitable (sp?).

Anyway, I'm pau (done) for now. Gotta go catch some sleep. I miss my friends and family and can't wait to see everyone at Christmas!! Leave a spot for me on your social calendar for sure. Malama pono, Susie
