Boy, we had a great crowd last night at Lulu’s! Many of our friends came down to welcome us home after being away for a couple of weeks. Our good friend, Misa, came dressed as Meg from “Family Guy” and also had a cool ManoaDNA uchiwa or fan which she had made … very cool! Also there were the Kases from Yokohama who we saw when we were in Japan last week. Akio even got up to perform a couple of songs while his wife, Eriko, danced the hula in front of a very appreciative crowd. So even though it took us a while to settle into our groove, it turned into another rocking Friday night at Lulu’s! I think the boys & I are still feeling the effects of our trip since everyone looked beat at the end of the night.
We haven’t taken the puppies for their walk yet since it’s kind of windy and rainy this morning in Manoa. I’m glad we don’t have any gigs this weekend because we need the rest and there are things we need to do at home. And since it’s summer, it’s the obon season with many bon dances taking place around the island. There’s one this weekend at the temple near our home so we’ll probably drop by to get some great local food. We’ve been taking the boys to this fun cultural event ever since they were little.
