Willy and Deanna enjoy having visitors!  Willy’s friends from Jiu-Jitsu and Toastmasters visited as well as longtime friends Dave and Brenda Gleason.   Nephew Austin and Melanie came with their friends. Willy shared some of the island with Cynthia and her parents. Kim Gracie stayed a night.  A big highlight for the year was 15 seated at our Thanksgiving dinner on the beach, including Chad and Jamie’s family, Willy’s mom Dorothy, brother Larry and sister-in-law Doris, and nephew Luke and Ivette’s family.  John and Kristen came just after Christmas and stayed through New Year’s and John’s birthday.  Dana Cummings and kids got picked up in Waikiki and brought to the house by Willy’s boat. Carla from Willy’s California Jiu-Jitsu classes came with her mom and sister. Pete and Pilar’s daughter Marissa stopped in for a few days to play.  Co-workers Chris, Cammie, Sanjiv, and both Codys brought friends and family to enjoy the waves and learn to surf.

Every Saturday morning, Willy holds an event known as Surf-Jitsu.  From 7am to 9am it’s time to surf.  Willy has a few paddle boards and several surfboards.  It is attended by Willy’s co-workers and neighbors.  If someone is a first-time surfer, Willy works with them and gets them on a wave.  Speaking of surfing, Willy has caught a wave every single day since moving to the beach house, except for the few days he was off-island.  The no miss surf streak count is over 500 days now.  Following surf time, after 9am, the mats are put down in the yard under the Plumeria trees.  The Jiu-Jitsu training lasts 1 to 4 hours depending on the interest of the participants.  Sometimes the training is followed by a food event.  Kim Gracie was our special guest in December.  She rode a couple waves tandem riding on a paddle board with Willy.  She was up on her feet like a pro.  She also joined us on the mat, and spoke to Willy’s Jiu-Jitsu class.  Other Jiu-Jitsu news includes Willy attending a seminar by Ryron and Rener here in Hawaii and Rigan Machado awarding Willy his 2nd Degree Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt.  The first and second and third degrees of Black Belt are based on 3 years of involvement in Jiu-Jitsu in the previous belt level.

Willy has done his share of fishing this year but no Marlin, Wahoo, Mahi or Tuna.  He does catch other fish though.  Co-worker Robert Berry hooked a nice fish, but a bigger fish wanted it more, and took its share.

Willy’s Mom Moves to Hawaii

Dorothy, (Willy’s mom) moved to Hawaii!  She has her own place less than a half mile down the beach from Willy and Deanna.  She lives across the street from the beach and has a great view of Honolulu, Waikiki, and Diamond Head, especially at sunrise!  Willy and Deanna are glad to have her close.  Dorothy has been spending a lot of time with Deanna, shopping and getting settled into her new home.  They also have enjoyed her cooking as well as sharing meals together.  We all look forward to seeing even more family and other visitors as they will be coming to Hawaii instead of Arizona to see her.

Kirk’s Family Visits Hawaii

Kirk and Melanie and family stayed with us a few days along with time in Waikiki to attend Melanie’s cousin’s wedding.  Willy and Deanna enjoyed fun times with them and Melanie’s parents, Jeff and Jayne, who also came for the wedding!  Willy loved taking the family out on his boat. Hudson (7) jumped off a rock into the ocean and paddle boarded with his dad and Grumps.  Brooklyn (4) loved playing at the shoreline and boogie boarding!

Colorado Visits

Kirk graduated from Colorado University with an MBA.  Willy and Deanna flew over to join his family, including Melanie’s parents to watch the graduation ceremony.  While there, they all stayed in Kirk and Melanie’s Breckenridge place and skied.  Deanna visited them for Brooklyn’s birthday and Mother’s Day in May, and again in July.

Chad’s Family Visits Hawaii

Chad and Jamie brought their three kids and stayed with Willy and Deanna for the week of Thanksgiving.  It was the first time they came since Willy and Deanna moved there in 2019.  They took in some sights including Waimea Bay and Waimea Falls Park and enjoyed a boat ride and beach activities at the house.  Willy, Chad, and Declan caught a three-generation wave!  On that wave, Declan (6) was on a board with Chad. Woohoo!  Kason (4) loved building sandcastles and paddle boarding.  Zeya (2) giggled with joy every time her feet touched the ocean!  With more family staying just down the street at GG’s it was a busy beach!

Georgia Visits

Willy and Deanna visited Chad and Jamie and their kids in Georgia. On another trip in July, Deanna was able to celebrate her birthday with them.  There is much to explore in their yard with a creek running through it and a ninja course in the trees.  The boys caught fish and turtles at a local park and went kayaking with Willy at Lake Lanier.  Kirk and Melanie and their kids also went to visit Chad and Jamie’s clan in October and enjoyed having the cousins all together for the first time in a few years. This year, Chad became a licensed Optician to compliment sales and management at his job!

Sights From Home

Melanie snapped a quick photo of our place just before landing and Deanna framed it.  Deanna enjoys taking photos of sunrises over the water, sunsets against the mountains, and ships that go by.  We enjoy sharing our lives with all of you. We hope you are well and are looking forward to 2023 as much as we are. Willy retires in less than a year and a half!
