January 29, 2017

Yes, it is the year of the Rooster !
Happy Chinese New Year to you too Bing, and to all classmates.
Apologies Gerri, just saw your Chinese New Year wishes email flash by but it somehow
disappeared from my inbox and elsewhere, but the same to you too.
If there was much more that we missed seeing, please do resend it and I'll post it on the
next blog.

Don't forget the annual KHSF fundraiser dinner on Saturday March 25, 2017 at the
school cafeteria and auditorium.

Here you go Shinty, your message below.
I understand the previous golf affair was a great success so this should promise to be
much the same.

Don't normally post the type of email that Raynor sent but it seemed in keeping with
our old-time memories.

You're more than welcome Pat but please thank Jane and her son for the actual work.
I did see those murals at the last foundation dinner but neglected to take photos of them.

You've become quitet the traveler Moana, yes, do enjoy life while we are stil so young.

Well, we're a month into the new year but I have to say it's been quite a difficult start to
that new year personally at times.
Losing a close family member after declining health, a close family friend dealing with
a serious illness while undergoing treatment for another, another close family member
now thankfully recovering after a serious pedestrian accident... to have these happen
all at almost the same time can be very distressing to say the least.
But as they say, time can be a great healer.
I do hope for a great, happy, and safe, rest of the year for all.

Subject: Fwd: Fw: Fwd: LOST WORDS OF OUR YOUTH now this is a memory jogger
To: Harold Oshiro

I'll bet our Kaimuki 60 grads can remember every one of these phrases and or sayings.
Happy trails down the memory path.

LOST WORDS OF OUR YOUTH now this is a memory jogger…..

Cute story for all you old ones out there.

Heavens to Murgatroyd! [was that from Jimmy Durante?]
Would you believe the email spell checker did not recognize the word murgatroyd?
Lost Words from our childhood: Words gone as fast as the buggy whip!
Sad really!
The other day a not so elderly (65) (I say 75) lady said something to her son about
driving a Jalopy
and he looked at her quizzically and said "What the heck is a Jalopy?
Oh, Oh a new phrase!
He never heard of the word jalopy!!
She knew she was old but not that old.

Well, I hope you are Hunky Dory after you read this and chuckle.

About a month ago, I illuminated some old expressions that have become obsolete
because of the inexorable march of technology.
These phrases included "Don't touch that dial," "Carbon copy," "You sound like
a broken record" and "Hung out to dry."

Back in the olden days we had a lot of moxie.
We'd put on our best bib and tucker to straighten up and fly right.

Heavens to Betsy!
Gee whillikers!
Jumping Jehoshaphat!
Holy moley!
We were in like Flynn and living the life of Riley, and even a
regular guy couldn't accuse us of being a knucklehead, a nincompoop or a pill.
Not for all the tea in China!

Back in the olden days, life used to be swell, but when's the last time anything
was swell?

Swell has gone the way of beehives, pageboys and the D.A.
and of spats, knickers, fedoras, poodle skirts, saddle shoes and pedal pushers.
Oh, my aching back.
Kilroy was here, but he isn't anymore.

We wake up from what surely has been just a short nap, and before we can say,
well I'll be a monkey's uncle! or, this is a fine kettle of fish! we discover that
the words we grew up with, the words that seemed omnipresent, as oxygen,
have vanished with scarcely a notice from our tongues and our pens and
our keyboards.

Poof, go the words of our youth, the words we've left behind.
We blink, and they're gone. Where have all those phrases gone?

Long gone: Pshaw,
The milkman did it.
Hey! It's your nickel.

Don't forget to pull the chain.
Knee high to a grasshopper.

Well, Fiddlesticks!
Going like sixty.
I'll see you in the funny papers.
Don't take any wooden nickels.

It turns out there are more of these lost words and expressions than Carter
has liver pills.
This can be disturbing stuff !

We of a certain age have been blessed to live in changeable times.
For a child each new word is like a shiny toy, a toy that has no age.
We at the other end of the chronological arc have the advantage of remembering
there are words that once did not exist and there were words that once strutted
their hour upon the earthly stage and now are heard no more, except in our
collective memory.
It's one of the greatest advantages of aging.

See ya later, alligator!

And I'd add -- after while, crocodile......

Hi Hal,
Thank you for giving us the link to the photos of the KHS murals.
The murals are awesome and they add so much to the old campus.
Wishing everyone a healthy and rewarding 2017.

It's never too late to wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Spending my time in Tucson and returning tomorrow.
Never know where I'll be half of the time.
Maybe I'll go and visit my son Kimo Lee in Ft Belvoir, Va?
Nice to have a retired Navy Officer flying for Delta?
Life is a blessing!
Aloha to all!

Another new year... need to get used to writing in the year 2017.

Doug, that would be a good resolution to work on now that most of us have reached
or will reach the three-quarter century mark.

Arline, Chester, Gerri, Roy, Jane, and Tim, thanks for the good wishes to all,

Below is a link to the photos that Jane Mock Pang's son took of the murals at the
KHS campus.

The mural was unveiled in November of 2015.
Below is a link to an explanation of the meaning of some of the murals

Have a great New Year all.
