That'll teach the rest of us about not showing up.

Long plane ride, but looks like a good time was had by all!

Aloha Deach,

Cool photos and looks like you all had a great time. It must've been one heck of a jam session.

See you brought the Keith Ogata "Kinohi" as well. Whoohoo!!

ohhhh mmmyyyy ggooodddd. Don't even know what to say. What a day it was. I have more videos to post, maybe I'll do it when I wake up and if I ever change out of my jammies today.

Deach, you are a freaking nut. I still can't believe you came all this way for us, and to surprise Russ. I wish someone had video of us all waiting for your airport shuttle, and them chasing after you down the street when you left. Miss you already, my friend. xoxoxoxo

And thanks so much Dom, for helping me out all day! You are the man! And if you haven't had a chance to see Dominator rock out with his rock band, what are you waiting for? He and his band are amazing and so much fun to watch.

And to Russ- thank you for bringing the sound and for being such an amazing friend. And Alden and Jeremy, I was so happy you three made the long trek down from SF. Alden took on the roll of all around helper guy. Fixing sound, and mics, and cleaning up for me. You rock.

Oh!! And we raised over $200 for Ukes for Kids. Thanks guys for buying up all the raffle tickets! I just cannot believe E-Money (ukulelemotion) won ANOTHER uke! You are crazy, E. Play the lotto. Damn. Hey, E, thanks for taking on the MC job. You are so funny. I'll never MC another jam as long as you are around.

Thanks to everyone for making it a fantastic day. I have so much more stuff, and I'm sure I'll write more as the fuzzy memories get more clear in my tired little brain.

Love you all! xoxoxo -Heather

Dayam Dinkadink and Deach. Y'all should start a ukulele version of Pimp My Ride! That was a priceless gift to Russ and a well deserved one. I hope y'all took some video footage. Ric

the plane ride is the easy part. it's the checking in twice in one day part that earns you champ status.

It's pretty long and ridiculous, but it could not have been more fun sneaking around with Deach. Gotcha Russ!!

Wow, this is about as cool as it gets... tears forming in the corner of an eye, nose running like Usain Bolt, the "cup of hot chocolate and a good poem on a warm fuzzy tiger rug in front of a fireplace in mid-winter" feeling.

You guys are awesome!

This is nuts. After a really long and gruelling day I decided to check the forum before retiring for the evening. I'm laughing so hard I may not get to sleep. Thanks for that Deach. I needed that. It was hilarious. I just hope I don't have nightmares now.;)

Just another reason that UU kids rock! Also sucks that I'm in (almost) total ukulele isolation up here in the frigid north. A uke jam sesh would be tres bon!
