Aloha, peeps!

Ok, I’m feeling much better this morning.  Two of my New Year’s resolutions will be to find new software to do my blogs and to learn how to use Twitter!  I know a lot of you are trying to follow me on Twitter and I apologize for not using it yet … but I will this year, I promise!  And because I’m not a good writer you’ll have to excuse me if I sometimes sound like an idiot.  It’s like I have these great thoughts in my head that somehow turn into mindless babble when I open my mouth or start writing – sort of like using the Google translation app for my foreign language emails – a major, major train wreck!  I guess that’s why God made me a guitar player instead … hahaha!

As I started to tell you guys yesterday before I was so rudely interrupted, our Christmas Day was a nice, quiet affair … family came over in the morning for our traditional brunch, then we opened gifts, and then we all crashed for the rest of the day!  One thing I always find amusing is that I can always tell where my boys are in their lives by the kind of gifts they receive … ie, toys & games in the early years, then computer stuff, then music equipment, and now it’s coffee makers & household items!  Some things never change ….

Today is our Thursday group’s 3rd annual father/son golf outing and the Kawakami boys are looking to make it 3 wins in a row!  Even though each year’s tournament uses a different format, we’ve somehow managed to come out on top each time … much to the chagrin of the other players!  The day is really about our kids, though, and we try to make it a fun outing for all of them.  I’m really glad that Gary’s son, Kevin, and Buggy’s son, Scott, will be joining our group today … their papas would be proud!  Stay tuned for the results tomorrow …

Aloha, “D”
