May weekend

Saturday was Free Comic Book Day and it was the library’s third year of participation in the giveaway program. I ordered 150 comics this year, paid for by grant money from the Friends of the Library, and only 7 were left at the end of the day. This year 4 cosplayers volunteered their time and did a 2 hour appearance at Waikiki-Kapahulu.

Comics before and after the giveaway.
Photo ops were popular with all ages.

I went to the wifey’s open house on Sunday it’s located on the ridge above the valley we live in so I was curious to see the views from up there.

Here’s a view into my valley from the wifey’s open house my home could not be seen from the vantage point it is deeper in the valley going right.
Million dollar view from the ridge looking directly south at Diamond Head crater.
Looking south southwest at Waikiki skyline.

Taiko program

I hosted a taiko drumming program today and it went well. I was a little worried at first because there was no one around 10 minutes before the start. I had a flashback of no one coming like my last program. At 5 to people started showing up and more continued coming in during the first number to makeup a good sized crowd. It was loud but not close to what I expected and best of all no complaints from library users. Music programs have done well at the library we’ve had excellent performers and good attendance, plus it’s a great venue with the musicians under the large window and the building’s awesome acoustics. Hope my next program goes as well as today’s.
