I forgot to post a couple events from 2 weeks ago. Here they are . . .

May 6th we were asked to provide entertainment to the Vaxers at the HHS Kerner POD. Sort of a Tropical Thursday Event. Click below to view images from the event. Mahalo to Toni for setting it up for us.

That following Friday was our 2nd Friday Night at the Elks, but held on the 1st Friday because of my pending eye surgery. Click below to view the event.

Then there’s this Saturday’s Vanikapila . . .

Ok, I think I got everything, though I’m sure I missed something, anyway, gotta put drops in my eye . . .

7 Hours after surgery. My son says I look “Bad Ass!” I Sure didn’t feel like it!


silence in the storm,
melodies whirl in the wind,
together we soar.

Malama Pono Kakou,


Did I blink?
