Time to round up all the old folks as well as the young adults, children and everyone else on my Mom’s side of the family for an upcoming reunion that is coming quicker than I would like to think.
It will be a good time to catch up with everyone and anyone who comes, take another round of new photos and hopefully pass the baton on to the next generation of Kealohas and related relatives as this o’hana moves further into the 21st century and beyond.
This reunion will be a one day affair to talk story, exchange ideas for keeping and staying in touch with each other, share genealogical information and get to know each other better…. especially the older folks getting to know who all the young ones are.
Years ago when we had a few reunions, I shot a ton of pictures at these, many of them children with their parents and grandparents, uncles and aunties, etc. Now the children are all grown up, many with their own children… and grandchildren… maybe.
So it is a good time for me, at least to pass on the legacy photo duties and digital copies to someone else. If anything, this should be interesting and fun.

Mick Jagger in concert with The Rolling Stones in 1976.
Best wishes go out to singer Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones who a heart valve replacement procedure this past week. According to this article from Billboard Magazine:
Mick Jagger has completed his heart valve procedure in New York and is recovering and in great health, sources tells Billboard.
Doctors were able to access Jagger’s heart valve through his femoral artery and are now monitoring the Rolling Stones frontman for any complications that could arise from the procedure, including excess bleeding. On Sunday (March 31) the Stones announced they were rescheduling their North American No Filter Tour so that Jagger could have the procedure.
While the recovery time for the procedure is much shorter than surgery, Jagger must rest for four to five days so that the artery can heal without any severe bleeding issues. He could be up an moving in a few days, but will need some additional recovery time before returning to the stage.
I’ve long been a fan of The Rolling Stones since I first heard their hit “(Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” back in the 1960s. I bought many of their records and saw them in concert at Aloha Stadium in 1998.
I am sure Jagger had earlier health issues with drugs and alcohol that are typical to many rock stars. In later years it was reported that he straightened himself out. He certainly has never gained much weight in all those years and has toured extensively throughout the world with a high energy show that he is well known for.
It is cool that Mick Jagger’s procedure did not require open heart surgery. That probably means at age 75 he is in better health than I was at age 58+ only a few years ago.
