The Further Adventures of Scout Vagabond

December 22, 2007 at 4:01 pm 13 comments

No pic this time as there’s only rain to snap.  Besides the weather woes (i’m not crying about it, i still don’t have to wear wool), Scout’s had a few mishaps.  My first night here i went to a bar with my Hawaiian sister.  some little creep from micronesia, aka ‘micro man’ was being lewd and crude to us.  i told him to get away and never talk to me again……he put his hand up my sister’s skirt.   we moved away but the dickhead did the same to my sister decked him low in the thorax then barred her forearm against his throat.  down he went…..and the bartender tried to kick US out.  lucky people backed us,, and besides, how often does a woman just deck a guy for nothing? make that two dickheads. tradgedy struck when my sister took my truck to the bar the other night to meet her niece and shoot some pool.  i don’t know what happened nexxt, everyone’s still trying to sort things out.  all i know is the niece ended up with my truck and wrapped it around a tree.  she is dead at 23 years old. i doubt i’ll get insurance for my truck, but that’s immaterial considering the tradgedy.  you can read what little there is here.   my sister and i were meant to have gone to the top of mauna kea that night for a hawaiian/native indian ceremony……that didn’t pan out of course.   two days before this happened my sister came to me because as she drove by the great crack, a huge gulley-like formation left from an eruption years ago, she said light was coming from it, not on it or from the non existant sun, but from it.  then an owl flew by.  for hawaiians, like the west coast natives, an owl means death.   i told this to the mother and she said , ‘it was meant to be, her time was up’  and she stood fearlessly  like a warrior who has known too much grief in her time  and knowing she must move forward.  it was a striking picture and one i hope to see come to and end in all indigenous culture.back to the laundramat…….life goes on, right?

    Scout,

    I have not been here in a while, but when i read your sister was killed my heart skipped a few beats.

    My deepest condolences to you and your family. I just lost my sister-in-law last month. It was very sad, but a blessing in the end. She kept her dignity, and did not suffer a prolonged demise.

    All my best to you dear friend.
