Had to brag! My wonderful (and quite attractive) wife just told me that she booked our vacation around the 42nd Annual Ukulele Festival on Oahu and sent me last year's schedule of lessons in case I wanted to be a part of the festival and play in the "orchestra." She also sent me links to the "K-Brand" factory tours. . . and told me to save up so I could buy a new uke there (she doesn't know they don't sell at the factories). She's an enabler of the best kind!!

I think I mentioned this in a previous post - she's also the one who could tell I really wanted my Kamaka on our last vacation but I wouldn't pull the trigger on it. She went back to Larry's Music and it was waiting for me in our room when I got back from the beach with our son.

That's great, Gary.

Like my wife and mother-in-law getting together so I could buy the Sceptre.

We have wonderful families, don't we?

BTW, have a great time at the Ukulele Jams Festival in October - sorry that I won't be able to make it.

That sounds wonderful. The difference between being an enabler and being supportive is whether the habit in question is good for you, so I'd say your wife is a strong supporter. Either way, she sounds like a real sweetheart. I'm hoping to attend the Ukulele Festival on O'ahu next July, so maybe I'll see you there.

By the way, the KoAloha factory has "seconds" -- perfectly fine ukuleles with barely noticable cosmetic issues -- availabe for sale, although the selection is hit-or-miss. And you can order an ukulele at the Kamaka and Kanile'a factories, although you won't get the instant gratification of taking your new ukulele home with you. If you're only planning to be on O'ahu, Dan's Guitars (http://www.dansguitars.com/)in Honolulu and Ukulele Pua Pua (http://ukulele.pua2.com/)in Waikiki usually have Kamakas, KoAlohas and Kanile'as.
