Happy Aloha Friday!

This week’s been a busy one at ‘IOLANI on KONA ST. … lots of ManoaDNA fans dropping in to say “hi” along with many new faces – locals and visitors alike.  Mahalo for coming in, everyone … it was great to meet all of you!  I also want to apologize to those of you whom I’d met before but couldn’t remember your names … for some reason, I can recognize faces but names are a different story!  I’m really starting to get concerned about my recall skills and growing forgetfullness and … wait, what were we talking about again??  🙂

Joined my fellow degenerates yesterday afternoon for our regular Thursday golf outing … didn’t do to badly and managed to shoot an 82.  Still not convinced that my game is back to normal, though.  There are always 3 or 4 holes in the the middle of the round where I suddenly start hitting a low hook off the tee which immediately gets me into trouble.  I end up scrambling, of course, and eventually my swing returns … but this sudden swing change is driven me crazy!  I’d like to be able to blame my equipment, the weather, whatever … but I know the problem is really between my ears!  Oh, and a bit of advice … do not hang your foot outside of the golf cart as you’re driving!  One of our fellow degenerates had that habit and ended up getting his foot caught between the cart and the curb … snapped his ankle like a twig!  Guess he’ll never do that again … take care, Commish, and keep your damn foot in the cart next time!

I’m really going to enjoy this weekend since MDNA is off this week and next.  I’ll be taking friends from Japan golfing this afternoon, then play in a golf tournament tomorrow morning (can you tell I love golf?!) and attend a banquet tomorrow evening with Carla.  This will be one of the rare times that I have a Saturday night free since MDNA is usually performing at Kani Ka Pila … should be fun!  It’s not all play and no work, though … I have to start preparing to go back on the road in October and November … our final push before the holidays begin …

Stay safe, everyone!

Aloha, “D”
