I hoped the weather would be good enough for us to celebrate Cinco de Mayo outside.
Yes, we were able to gather on the side of A Bitty Better in the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville, the six of us and Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle.
My wonderful daughter Elisabeth and her sensational significant George Three brought beer, some of our Kona delights and a Mexican brand called Pacifico.
Our hearts go out to those affected by the erupting volcano, lava flow and earthquakes on the Big Island. We love it there so since we four visited last August.
Drinking that Kona, we talked about it.
And we pulled on the sombreros Elisabeth brought with her.
Ellie B looked sharp in her special neckwear.
By the time Georgia and Bert got there with their haul of Tecante beer and Karen got the big feast of fajitas and enchiladas ready, I kept the iPhone 8 safely in my pocket.
The conversation and camaraderie were enough to keep us all happy.
