Aloha, friends!  It’s Thursday so I’m gonna be doing battle with my buddies on the golf links this afternoon.  The last time I golfed right after returning from Japan, I shot a 78, so I’m hoping for the same result this time.  I’ll let you guys know what happened in tomorrow’s blog …

It’s good that we have a few days off to rest this week, but we need to start getting mentally & physically prepared for upcoming performances and events starting at next week’s Na Hoku Festival.  We also need to prepare for the release of our new CD “EVOLUTION” this summer, along with a return to Japan in July.

I really miss the food in Japan, but I can’t wait to pick up a plate lunch at Rainbow Drive-Inn before golf.  Then after our “19th” hole today, I’m meeting my boys & some friends at one of our favorite watering holes, Tsukuneya, for some great izakaya!

Aloha, “D”
