Hi guys,

Well, I ended up playing in the HJCC Samurai Golf Tournament yesterday when one of our guys had to withdraw due to injury.  And like most golf tournaments, it took an agonizing 6 1/2 hours to play the round which is why I hate to play in these things – plus the fact that it was at the Pearl Country Club which always kicks my ass!  And to give you an idea of how long yesterday’s round was, it normally takes us a little over 3 1/2  hours to play a round on Thursdays .. so obviously, we spent half the time sitting in the carts!  The only saving grace was that I was with my fellow degenerates and there was lots of beer, so we were able to entertain each other while waiting.  It was still a lot of fun, though, and I’d like to thank all the hard-working volunteers who put in some serious time preparing for this event … also mahalo to our bruddah Les for sponsoring the two teams, and to Sammy, Paulie, Kome, Ants, and Kooks for keeping me from going stir crazy.  And finally to Froggy, who’s injury gave me the opportunity to play in this marathon … watch out, payback’s a bitch!  Hahaha!  I need a massage …

Hey, you guys ever notice that a lot of taxi drivers always fail to use the turn indicator signal when making a turn??  Or when they do, they have this nasty habit of signaling left, then turning right … and vice versa!  Saw it twice yesterday … is this some sort of “taxi brotherhood” ritual or are basic driving skills no longer required to qualify for a city taxi permit?  Just askin’ …

And finally … did you notice that this only my 3rd blog this week?? (Hey – who’s that I hear cheering in the background?!)  You probably think I’m getting lazy, but I finally decided to stop writing stuff just to fill space – “quality over quantity” – that’s my new motto!   Now if I can only figure out how to write quality instead of this stuff!  Hahaha!!!

Aloha, “D”
