Happy King Kamehameha Day!

Kamehameha I was the indigenous warrior who united all the Hawaiian Islands under one kingdom in the early 19th century. My chief reason for mentioning it now is that I have a holiday from work and am going to celebrate!  😀

One treat I have for you is a new story from Woodsy, the same talented writer who gave you a spanking poem several weeks ago. I was happy to see the same things I loved in his poetry were present in his stories — an authenticity of emotion and sense of playfulness, for example.

Anyway, here’s a link to the story on his blog. Enjoy, and let him know how much you liked it: The Torch Hands.

    Happy King Kamehameha Day, Alyx. Having a day off work is always nice! 😁

    Thanks for sharing Woodsy’s story with us! I loved it and just commented on it.

    Also, I totally googled King Kamehameha and think it’s pretty interesting that his final resting place still remains a mystery.

      Thanks, Amanda! (And thanks for showing some love to another author! 🙂 )

      And hey, that’s cool you found that out about Kamehameha. I had forgotten about that! But yeah, native Hawaiians put a lot of significance on the ‘iwi (bones). Whenever there are construction projects (like building a freeway, for example) and they unearth some bones, everything comes to a halt until they can be safely relocated.

    Hope you enjoy the day, Alyx. If you see any lights in the sky with feathers like a bird… (I’ve been googling too)

    Oh no, I’m late to the party. 😮 Sorry, Alyx. 😛 Happy belated King Kamehama day! 😀

    And at the risk of oversaying this… thank you again for all the support and some really cool comments and stuff over on my blog. That was my first ttwd post and I’d love to post more but without the encouragement of some awesome, talented peeps… well, y’know. Massive hugs of gratitudey stuff.
