"You can leave it all behind
and sail to Lahaina
just like the missionaries did, so many years ago
They even brought a neon sign: "Jesus is coming"
Brought the white man's burden down
Brought the white man's reign" ~ The Eagles, The Last Resort
On our last day in Maui we came across this sign on Front Street in Lahaina. I started yelling "Pull Over! Pull Over!" and thank god I didn't scare Dan too much. As he pulled over to indulge his photo crazy wife, I noticed that we were in fact, not the only ones who had pulled over to take a photo of this sign. Mission accomplished.
We decided on this trip that we like Maui...a LOT. We also decided that we don't like Honolulu very much. We visited Kailua for the first time. Ate lunch as Buzz's by the beach. When I get my non-digital photos developed, I'll share more photos including the photo my son took of the spot where Bill and Hillary at at Buzz's!
I am embarassed to say that my 15 year old son spoted the humor in this sign well before I did. He made us stop so he could take a photo of it with his phone and he promptly sent it to all of his friends. We had a pretty good laugh at it and my 13 year old asked the $64,000 question, "Who would name their kid Mary Jane if their last name was Stoner?"
Indeed. Of course I realize that there are other ways that she could have ended up with that name...but then where is the fun in that?
Our travels are done for now. I realize that I did hardly any blogging about BlogHer and I'm regretting it. I think I was so pre-occupied with the trip coming up that I wasn't as engaged in BlogHer as I would like to have been. I've been having a blast reading posts by Badgerbag, Grace, SocalMom, Christine, Left Coast Mom and others. I really missed participating in day 2. Too many things to do, too little time.
