Today was opening day at the State legislature ~ an annual event not to be missed. Lucky for us, we were sitting on the floor(in chairs on the floor to be more specific), looking up at the gallery. Great people watching, great pressing-the-flesh watching, great glad-to-see-you-ha-ha smiles watching, great genuine glad-to-see you moments watching.
The place is adorned with flowers, beautiful singing by special choirs,and in the Senate Chambers, entertainment by guys from Waianae, and a wonderful wrap up by Uncle Gordon Mark, ukelele player extraordinnaire.
Our favorite legislator, Senate President Colleen Hanabusa, gave a fantastic speech, as always mentioning her dog Little (who has been gifted Lanikai Poi Dog).
Greg McMackin, just named the new UH football Warriors Coach, was sitting in front of us so we were positively on TV. Did you see us?
What does all of this have to do with Lanikai Bath and Body? For starters, it was beautiful. Second it was, naturally, Hawaiian. Third, because of all the flowers, it smelled terrific. Fourth, Aloha was everywhere. Fifth, there was plenty of warmth and good feelings.
Once again, and always, lucky we live Hawaii!
