Elmo Kekaa Remembers;
Da' Mighty Hawai'i Kai Tree
Waimanalo, Hawaii Eh, you
folks get one great website! I get couple pictures dat I tink would
be good fo your da kine, Scenic Avenue section.
Small kid time, I used to walk to school from my house in Hawaii Kai
to Kamiloiki. On da way was this rubbish can under one skinny tree
dat I used to kick around and make dents. Ho, dat ting smelled so
bad too, cuz of all da stale-old beer cans leff behind from
construction workers. Pilau! I tell you!
But anywayz, as I got older, dat small tree got biggah and biggah
until da whole tree when envelop dat rubbish can. Honest! I kid you
not. Dat was ova tirdy-years ago! If you look good, you still can
see a little of it showing tru da tree trunk. I promise you can!
Only small-kine tho.
tree stay at da bottom of da Hawaii Kai hill. You know da one? Its
at da corner of Lunalilo Home Road and Hawaii Kai Drive.
Hope you folks like da story and
It seems that Elmo Kekaa used to walk to school and on the way, hed
kick a trash can that was under a small tree located at Lunalilo
Home Road and Hawaii Kai Dr. After 30 years, that trash can ended up
being consumed by that tree. Today, if you look closely, you can see
some of the can showing through its roots and tree trunk. Great
story Elmo! Thanks eh'.
If it happened on the streets of Hawaii,
you just might hear it first in Honolulu Streets.
