That's a Turkey?!
This Thanksgiving, my granddaughter Lily, who is six and a vegetarian, understood what a turkey was for the first time. Or at least it seemed like she did. Standing in our kitchen, confronting a beautifully browned cooked turkey side-by-side with a formerly beautifully browned but now cut to the bone turkey, she asked if "that was that before it was that?" That it was.
There were plenty of things for her to eat, and everyone else to eat as well. We had a wonderful thanksgiving, and hope that all of you did too.
Today is the next day, the day they call Black Friday in the retail world. Since Lanikai Bath and Body is tucked away in a not-mall as you enter Kailua town, it is doubtful we got much traffic -- I haven't checked. The malls must have been jam packed -- even sleepy little Kailua had people lined up before dawn to get Wii games and video camera dvd.
Our tea light candles were featured in the Honoulu Advertiser this morning under the headline "Gifts Under $35." Pohaku was featured in Honolulu magazine's gift issue. Christmas --the season we in retail judge ourselves by -- is underway.
