ʻo Brownie

No ka ʻauinalā o kēia Lāpule, manaʻo wau e make ana ʻo Brownie.

No ka hana ʻana i kahi moʻolelo lōʻihi, ua hana maikaʻi ʻo Brownie–i ka hopena. ʻO koʻu mau waimaka no ka make ʻana o Brownie me he mea lā he mea hoʻonui i ka poʻe nānā i waho. He ʻelima ʻīniha ka lōʻihi o Brownie (e helu ana i kona huelo), moʻo maʻamau, a ʻeleʻele, e like me kaʻu i hāʻawi ai iā ia. No ka moo nui ma ko makou waiwai ma ka lihi o Everglades. Kapa ʻia lākou he brown anoles (aʻu i aʻo ai ma hope o koʻu kapa ʻana iā ia ʻo Brownie) a loaʻa ko lākou ala i South Florida mai Cuba a me nā mokupuni ʻē aʻe o ka Caribbean. He mau tausani o Brownie mau kaikunane a me na kaikuahine e holo ana ma na wahi a pau maanei. He ʻāpana lākou o ka ʻāina.

Eia ke kumu koʻikoʻi ʻo Brownie iaʻu. E hoʻomaka ana ma kahi o ʻeono mahina aku nei, ʻike au iā ia no ka manawa mua ma ka piko o ka wai melemele ma ka ʻaoʻao o ke kuʻekuʻe ma ke alo o ke alapiʻi paʻa e piʻi ai i ka veranda o ka papahele ʻelua o ka hale. ʻAʻohe o mākou wai aupuni ma ʻaneʻi. Na ka pauma uila e lawe i ka wai mai ka luawai ma hope o ka hale. No laila, ʻaʻole pili ka hydrant i kekahi mea. A laila, hiki iā ʻoe ke ʻōlelo he pili ia i ka wā ma mua–no Wayne. ʻO Wayne kekahi o nā mea nona mua o kēia waiwai. He kanaka kinai ahi i hoomaha ia i lawe mai i ka hydrant i mea hoomanao mai kana hana. Ua hāʻawi paha kona mau hoa hana iā ia i makana aloha. ʻO Patty ka wahine a Wayne. Noho lākou ma ʻaneʻi no ʻumi makahiki. Aia ma ka ʻaoʻao ʻākau o ka hale ma ka ʻaoʻao Laau Hauoli ʻo ia ka inoa o Patty i kahakaha ʻia i loko o ke kaʻa. Wahi a "Patty's Parking." He mea hōʻeha. Ua lōʻihi ka make ʻana o Wayne lāua ʻo Patty.

ʻOiai, ua hopu ʻo Brownie i koʻu maka no ka mea a) ʻike wau iā ia ma luna o ka wai wai kokoke i kēlā me kēia lā, a b) ʻoluʻolu ʻole ʻo ia i koʻu noho ʻana ma luna o ka piko e kamaʻilio me ia. ʻIke wau, loaʻa iaʻu kahi ala e hoʻopili ai iaʻu iho i nā holoholona inā e hōʻike mau lākou i nā wahi like. Ua hana ʻia me Baby Hawk i ʻelua mau makahiki i hala (a alakaʻi i he moʻolelo mahiʻai). Me he mea lā ua hana hou ʻia me Brownie. E ʻōlelo paha kekahi mea ʻino ʻo Brownie ka Baby Hawk hou.

I Iune, ua hele au i kaʻu huakaʻi mua ma mua o ʻekolu makahiki e ʻike i koʻu mau mākua ma Kelemānia. ʻOiai ma ka mokupuni o ke Kai ʻĀkau kahi a lākou e noho ai, ua loaʻa iaʻu ʻo Covid a hāʻawi aku iā lākou (he ʻoluʻolu wale nō, mahalo). I kēlā manawa, manaʻo pinepine au iā Brownie, he moʻo kokoke i 5,000 mile ka mamao ma Everglades. I koʻu holo ʻana i kekahi o nā kaʻa kaʻa o koʻu mau mākua ma o ka “Grünstreifen,” ʻo ia hoʻi ʻo “Green Stripe” a he ʻāpana nani o ka ululāʻau e holo ana ma nā wahi o ka mokupuni, ua noʻonoʻo au inā ʻo Brownie e noho ana ma luna o ka wai. Ua nīnau au iaʻu iho inā ʻo ia e kulou ana i kona poʻo a hoʻolōʻihi i kona hau, he ʻāpana ʻili ʻulaʻula lahilahi hiki iā ia ke wehe e like me ka pahi mai lalo o kona ʻāʻī. Ua noʻonoʻo au inā aia ʻo ia i koʻu hoʻi ʻana mai. He aha ke ola o ka anole brown?

Ua hoʻolōʻihi wau i ka noho ʻana me koʻu mau mākua no hoʻokahi pule e hoʻoponopono ai i ka manawa a mākou i nalowale ai i kā mākou maʻi. Ma hope o koʻu hoʻi ʻana i ka Everglades, hauʻoli wau i ka ʻike hou ʻana iā Brownie ma luna o ka wai wai. E like me kaʻu i hana ai me Baby Hawk, hoʻomau wau i ka noho ʻana me ia i kēlā me kēia ahiahi, e leʻaleʻa i ka manawa hui a me ka ʻike pinepine ʻana. Ua ʻike au he "ʻo ia" ʻo Brownie no ka mea ua ʻike pinepine au iā ia e hui pū ana me nā wahine liʻiliʻi, e kōkua ana e hōʻoia i ka noho aliʻi ʻana o ka heluna kanaka anole brown. Ua maʻa loa ʻo ia iaʻu a ʻae ʻo ia iaʻu e kiʻi i nā kiʻi kokoke i ka wā o ka hana (me he mea lā ua hopohopo ka wahine). Ua manaʻo wau i ka pōmaikaʻi. Ua ʻike nō hoʻi au iā ia i ka poop, ʻo ka manawa mua aʻu i ʻike ai i ka poop moʻo. Ua hāʻawi mai ʻo Brownie iaʻu i kahi noho mua no ia mea a pau.

ʻO kaʻu mau kiʻi punahele naʻe, ʻo ia nā kiʻi aʻu i kiʻi ai iā ia e kiʻekiʻe ana ma luna o ka hydrant ma nā ʻano "moi o ka honua". E ʻae ʻo ia iaʻu e kiʻi i loko o hoʻokahi ʻīniha me kaʻu iPhone e kiʻi i nā kiʻi. ʻElua mau manawa, ʻae ʻo ia iaʻu e hoʻopā i kona huelo, ʻaʻole ia e holo. I nehinei, ʻo ia, no ka manawa mua, ʻae mai iaʻu e hoʻopā i kona ihu, me ka pōkole a me ka mālie, me koʻu manamana lima. A noho iho la ia.

E like me kaʻu i ʻōlelo ai, ma ka Lāpule, manaʻo wau e make ana ʻo Brownie. I ka lā ma mua, ua kamaʻilio ka Pelekikena ʻAmelika e pili ana i kona hopohopo e pili ana iā "Armageddon" ma ke kamaʻilio ʻana me nā mea hāʻawi Demokarata. Ua kūʻai au a hoʻopiha au i ʻehā mau pahu ʻaila hou a me 200 mau kini iʻa tuna mai Aldi mai i kēlā kakahiaka–ina e pau ka honua. No laila, aia wau i loko o kahi noʻonoʻo apocalyptic i ka wā i ʻike ai au i kahi anole ʻeleʻele e pipili ʻole ana i loko o ka nānā ʻana o ka wahi patio ma lalo. No kekahi kumu, ua hoʻoholo koke wau ʻo Brownie ia, ʻoiai ke hoʻomanaʻo nei au i ka noʻonoʻo ʻana me he mea lā ua ʻokiʻoki a ʻemi kēia anole. Manaʻo wau he ʻāpana paha ia o ke kaʻina make. I koʻu hoʻopā ʻana i ka moʻo aʻu i manaʻoʻiʻo ai ʻo Brownie ʻaʻole ʻo ia e neʻe, wehe pōkole kona mau maka, a laila pani mālie hou. Hiki iaʻu ke ʻike iā ia e hanu ana. Ua ʻeha ka naʻau a ua uē au. Kukuli au ma hope ona, hoʻomaikaʻi aku iā ia no nā manawa e hui pū ai, a ʻōlelo aku i koʻu aloha aloha.

Ua hoʻoholo wau e hoʻokuʻu wau iā Brownie e make me ka maluhia ma mua o ka hoʻoikaika ʻana iā ia me nā haʻalulu i kona mau hola hope. I koʻu hele ʻana i koʻu lā, nānā au iā ia mai kahi lōʻihi aku, e ʻike ana i kona ʻano paʻa me ka puʻuwai kaumaha. Ua hoʻoholo wau e hāʻawi wau iā Brownie i kahi kanu kūpono a loaʻa iaʻu kahi pahu pahu liʻiliʻi aʻu i mālama ai i loko o ke keʻena mīkina lima o kaʻu kaʻa, aia nā mīkina lima maʻemaʻe e komo ai i ka wā e hoʻopiha ai i ke kinoea. ʻO ka pahu ka pahu kupapaʻu o Brownie.

Brownie a me Zeus

E like me kaʻu i ʻōlelo ai, lōʻihi ka moʻolelo, ma hope o kēlā lā, ʻike wau i ka Brownie maoli ma luna o ka wai wai, e kulou ana i kona poʻo a hōʻike i kona hau. Ua loaʻa iaʻu kahi manaʻo hoʻomaha. Ua kāhea koke au ʻo Dāvida e hoike aku iaia i ka nuhou maikai. ʻO ka moʻo ʻē aʻe, ka mea aʻu i manaʻo ai ʻo Brownie, hoʻomau i ka pili ʻana i ka pale patio. Ua minamina au iā ia, akā ʻaʻole like ia. Nīnau akula ʻo Dāvida, He aha kou aloha i ka mea e make ana?

I ke kakahiaka aʻe, ʻaʻole i ʻike hou ʻia ka moʻo make ma ka pale. Nānā au a puni me ka makaʻu i ka loaʻa ʻana o kona kino ma ka papahele patio. Akā ʻaʻole au i ʻike iā ia ma laila. Ma hope o kēlā lā, ua ʻike hou ʻia ʻo ia ma kahi ʻē aʻe o ka pale patio, hou, neʻe ʻole akā e hanu ana. ʻAʻole paha ʻo ia e make ana akā e pili ana i kahi hoʻomaka hewa o ka brumation, aʻu i aʻo ai mai Wikipedia, ua like ia me ka hibernation no nā moʻo.

Ke ʻimi nei ʻo ia iā ia i kēia manawa i kaʻu kākau ʻana i kēia, ua neʻe hou ʻo ia, ʻaʻohe wahi e ʻike ʻia.

Nā moʻolelo hou
