ULY'S PUPULY'S HANDYWORKSwww.ArtPal.com/ulyyve
Aloha my name is Ulysses Kawika Saromines. I live on the Island of Oahu, Honolulu is the Capital of my Island and of the State of Hawaii. I live on the West Side of Oahu known as Waianae, Hawaii. I was Born in St Francis Hospital in the late 1960's Honolulu, Hi. My Father Kenneth Saromines first taught me how to make Crab Nets when I was 13yrs Old. After Graduating from High School, I joined the U.S. Navy as an Aviation Bosn's Mate. I fulfilled 81/2 years of Naval Service and Honorably Discharged in 1994. When I got back Home I Promised that I would ask my Dad to Teach me how to Weave those Three Tiered Japanese/European Glass Float Sets that he used to Weave when he was down there in the Marshall Islands in the 1950's. My Father told me that it was NOT EASY & DIFFICULT TO WEAVE IN THIS FASHION. Nonetheless, I Urged him to Please Teach me and he Finally did. I'm Glad he did. Otherwise, these Methods of Braiding Line and Rope would have been lost, at least from my Family. My Grandaughter recently said to me "'Papah, are you going to Teach me how to do that what you're doing there...?"' And it sort have Touched my Heart that a SIX YEAR OLD who always have her Eyes stuck on her Iphone, would Blurt something like that out. And I responded sure Papah will. But, First Papah is going to Teach you how to make CRAB NETS on the Metal Rings First. After you've Comfortably Learned it, then I'll Teach you how to do these more TEDIOUS BRAIDS. And she Rode away on her Bike while saying Okay Papah. Our Children and Grandchildren must be LEFT HERE ON EARTH WITH A PIECE OF OUR "'LEGACY"'. WE HOPE THAT BY SHARING OUR "'BRAIDED HANDYWORKS"' OF LINE AND ROPE, PLAY MARBLES & GLASS FLOATS, THAT YOU WOULD NOT ONLY APPRECIATE THESE EVERLASTING "'HEIRLOOM'S"' BUT, THAT YOU ENJOY THE "'LEGACY"' FOR WHICH MY FATHER INDELIBLY LEFT WITH ME. I Thank my Father each and every day for Showing me those things in LIFE that only FATHERS CAN TEACH. As he left our Family at the Ripe Ole Age of 90yrs. I still keep his LEGACY ALIVE with each and every Braided Works that I Complete. My Family and I Thank You for Sharing in my Fathers Legacy and Bid you "'MAHALO"' into the Future. "'ULY"'
