Because it's safe at "Warm Cookies"...

My brother-in-law Raja (his name is Roger, but if you say it like a local Hawaiian with a pidgin accent..you get the idea) is a HUGE Colt Brennan fan. When I was home in March, I took a picture of the back of Raja's favorite shirt. I constantly teased him that I was going to steal it from him, so he was hesitant to take it off. Raja's not Colt's only fan. Pretty much the entire state of Hawai'i loves Colt. Colt loves Hawai'i right back. He played football at the University of Hawai'i and after graduation was drafted by the Washington Redskins. Colt grew up with my hanai nephew, Branden. When I told Raj that I could get Colt's autograph for him, he smiled the kind of smile one smiles when they don't believe you and said.."Yeah, okay Pua." That was 3 years ago. This past weekend, Colt was visiting and thanks to Branden, I was finally able to make good on my promise to Raja. Tomorrow night, when Bryson leaves for Hawai'i, he will be carrying that long-promised autographed picture and will deliver it personally to his Uncle Raja.

But he's also gonna get a picture of me WITH Colt since I can't go home and deliver it myself. Just wish I could be there to see his face.
