Reminder to pick your favorite Alphabet Challenge “A” Stories

A quick reminder to vote for one of the stories in the “A” Alphabet Challenge Submissions. You can vote HERE and for them who have yet to read them, there are links to each of the stories in that post.

I realize it’s a huge time commitment (around 30 minutes reading time if you have to mouth the words or narrate them to your pets, less if you read them quietly), but you have a whole month to read them before the voting closes. Not that I suggest procrastinating. The opposite, in fact. Get to it now! Chop, chop. And tell all your friends.

Remember: if you don’t like any of the stories, direct all the people you don’t like to them so they too can suffer through their awfulness.

That’s from two years and two weeks ago. Pretty boring, no? We were probably on our way to Tex for a malasada fix when I pulled off the Belt Road just outside of Waimea and snapped that photo. Man, time sure flies.

Strangely enough, I see more birds and wildlife here than I did in Hawaiʻi.

I suppose (and have been told) there are lots of animals just below the surface of that big expanse of water surrounding the islands. I never ventured down there to check.

Here’s something we don’t really get in Hawaiʻi . . .

Seasons (click for larger view)

I mean, yes, they have seasons there . . . there’s Hotter, Wetter, Buggier, and my favorite, the Nuclear Attack Warning season.

I kid, of course; we enjoyed our time in Hawaiʻi. Heck, we enjoyed everywhere we’ve lived.

Remember to vote and to direct friends, enemies, and people you have no opinion about toward the trio of stories.

Here’s the gallery of the above . . .

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
