Hi peeps,

Carla left for Japan last night with the usual last-minute scrambling that always happens whenever you’re going on a trip.  Made it to the airport with time to spare, though, and after dropping her off I went to meet a couple of friends at Side Street before heading home.  My week is looking pretty normal with meetings at ‘IOLANI and gigs at the Hyatt (Wednesday), Lulu’s (Friday), and Kani Ka Pila (Saturday) on the schedule so far.  Wow … I just realized that it’s been months since we last performed at these 3 venues in the same week because we’ve been so busy!  We’re also scheduled to be on Hawai’i News Now this Wednesday morning to help promote Roy Sakuma’s Ukulele Festival this Sunday over at Kapiolani Park.  I always dread performing that early because my voice sounds pretty horrible in the morning …

Check out these pics .. first one is a street sign in Utah which my friend sent me.  Pretty cool, huh?    The next one is an iPhone cover which the boys got for me for Father’s Day … awesome!                                              Aloha, “D”
