Am I a day early or late? Somehow I have a note to myself that today is your Birthday.
Will you be able to get to Honolulu soon? Don't you or Krispin have some kind of convention coming up?
During my last few weeks in Honolulu this summer (July 4 thru Aug 15) I saw a lot of pets, mostly dogs, mostly smaller dogs. Looks like quite a clientele for you to tap with your services and expertise. Perhaps you could be a "Hotel Vet" traveling among several Hotels providing convenient services to the guests and their pets. You could also use your influence to introduce them to the uke!
Anyway, I know one day will be your Birthday, so Happy, Happy!
