OK, let me set the record straight. The tickets were a gift from Jaunty Wainani, who teaches Free ukulele lessons at the Royal Hawaiian Center on Tues and Thurs from 10 to 11 AM. Lucky I decided to attend!

Of course I iimmediately thought of Stan ... since I had 2 tickets and my wife is still in Seattle caring for our daughter as she completes the chemo portion of her treatment
for non Hodgkin's lymphoma. They plan on getting to HNL on Aug 8, when I return to Seattle!

Anyway, Stan and I had hibachi steak plate from Copeland before looking for parking for the event. We overpaid at the meter since there was no indication that parking would be free after 6P. Oh well, more support for the City and County of Honolulu.

The event was bring your own seat/lawn chair. Stan was in his wheel chair, but I was without a seat. I ended up watching the show from the back where I could sit on some rocks! It was great, just like Stan reported.

Next event ... 42nd Annual Ukulele Festival on the 22nd!

See you there.

keep uke'in',

So happy you got to go Stan! Sounds like you had a great time.
I hope I get to meet both you and Uncle Rod at the festival, I will be there, and I will be playing with the Strummers group.
See you on the 22nd...
