Reid is the man who abandoned his lava pants at the beach one day, so I have been fostering them ever since. The lava pants have been feeling lonely and abandoned for months now. They've been singing to me non-stop - Give Me Back My Man!
Reid also reminded me I gave him the Klode Kru nickname, Fred, because he was supposed to be Fred III in his family.
So, despite the harsh enforcement of the Second Law of Thermodynamics - increasing disorder in our lives and the universe as a whole - the Klode Kru is defying that law and establishing an orderly structure in the universe -twice daily swims at regular times, more and more willing participants, waiting until the church bells can be heard before walking down the hills. The familiar routines are re-establishing themselves.
Kahuna also has a suggestion for restoring order - he pointed out that some vandal had cut down a sapling that has a plaque next to it, saying that it was planted in memory of someone. Kahuna's suggestion - we could chip in to replace the tree, to honor the dearly departed person and their loved ones who planted the first tree. Kahuna made the point that we do a lot to beautify the park and the beach - we beautify the place just by walking around in our swim suits! But we can always do more to serve our community. Pretty soon, people will think that the park was named after the Klode Kru, instead of the Kru being named after the park. But seriously...I'd be willing to chip in for this.
