It was one year ago today that we were here in Hilo for the closing on our house. We needed some furniture and our local furniture store Koehnen's in downtown Hilo was featuring a real deal. If you came in a costume, you got 25% off of your purchase. So, for a small investment of a costume, we were able to save several thousand dollars. We went to Wal-Mart to find a costume and there was only one adult costume left and it was even missing the hat. It was "Big Daddy" a New Orleans Parade style costume in purple crushed velvet. I had brought along a little headband with devil ears on it and Wes had a beautiful lei that was presented to us by our real estate agent when we landed in Hilo, so we had a costume! Hence Big Bad Daddy Devil was born. This year he is going to be a Dalmatian. Here are some pictures from that day one year ago. It seems like a very long time considering all that has happened in the last year.
