A Fun Day with Hawaii Friends

Yesterday we went over to Rod an Lisa's house together with Jon and Barb.  Jon and Barb live in Buffalo NY and we all decided to get together for the 4th.  We all lived in Hawaii back in the mid 1980's and have been friends since that time.

One of the first things we did was gather round and Pam gave Barb a signed pair of pink boxing gloves.

Yes ~ she has been recently diagnosed with breast cancer and will probably have surgery within the next few weeks.   She goes back to the doctor next week for consultation.

While the girls sat around and chatted, Rod and Jon took me out for my first ever round of Disk Golf.  It was pretty humbling but fun.  They have played for years so I was learning from some guys who knew what they were doing.
I had mostly OK shots with some pretty week ones and made one from about 15 feet which was nice.  No birdies, a few pars, mostly 'others'.  They did much better and finished the 18 holes 9 and 10 over par.
Next we went back to Rod's and hung out on the back deck and in the back yard.  We played some ladder ball.
We also had a traditional hamburger dinner and did a lot of eating and chatting.
And we enjoyed the beautiful evening.
Hope you are enjoying the 4th of July weekend.

Thanks for viewing the Roadrunner Chronicles.


  1. Wishing you and Pam a Happy Independence Day. Please let know Barb know that she will be in our prayers.

    Love in Christ,

  2. Happy July 4th! Looks like you all had about a perfect day! I've never played disc golf either, it looks like fun though. Good looking 'burgers!

  3. Don't believe Randy's comment about his "Ok" disc golf shots. He played better than any 1st timer I've seen before. Anyway, Randy I'm glad you enjoyed the experience. You'll have to get Pam to join you next time. Rod Hamilton

  4. Many blessings to your friend Barb and her fight... more power to her!
