  1. Aloha!I live on Oahu and have been hoping for a Barack Obama sighting for so very long. I LOVE your blog, you’re extremely hilarious and damn good at what you do.Best,Patria

  2. My favorite story about Madelyn Dunham is that she wanted to be called Toot because she tought she was still too young to called Granny. Made realize, she was only 38 years old when her grandson was born!
