    The Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School Pueo Gardens finance class shift changes, Saturday during the Grove Farm Market at the Puhi Park. Pueo Garden heads to the home half of their planned six-week stretch with just three more appearances starting this Saturday.

“It’s raining!”

That caught the attention of Oliver Ruiz who was in attendance with mom Tish Ruiz (nice Hawai‘i Foodbank, Kaua‘i Branch shirt!) who took part in the fundraising Mo‘olelo Murals (Bethany Coma said they were able to finish the Verde Taco-inspired Butterfly Wings on Kress Street, Friday!) paint party at Harbor Mall, Monday (ah-h, Pietro’s Pizza was closed!) along with special guests like Laura Cristobal (she’s trying to get back to the Grove Farm Market), and Adams and Charlmaine Bulosan.

Nikki Cristobal did a great job setting the stage with a meditation session that cleared the distractions (no wonder Oliver was surprised with the rain, and what was that stop at Skinny Mike’s, Bree Blake?).

The Mo‘olelo Murals artists are supposed to be at the Kalena Park work day, Saturday where Larry Feinstein said “the place between work and home” is going to have lunch following a day where all kinds of things (Mo‘olelo Murals is trying to fit the design) is supposed to happen…is Bev Brody going to do her loop walk introduction?

Saturday is also a great time to visit Pueo Gardens at the Grove Farm Market (it used to be the Puhi Park Produce) where Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School instructor Tyler Gage and his finance class will have more of the Ghost Thyme Salt (Ferdinand Dosono — he’s still trying to find time to get the Wailua Meat burgers going — said it’s really good).
