    Default Soon to be mine

    Kamaka Hawaii Ukelele.jpg

    It's my birthday in two months, and the bride told me to order.

    So...

    MGM is sending me a Kamaka Pineapple in a Fremont case next week.

    Mike also promised to snap me a picture soon so I can anticipate.

    I look forward to joining the Kamaka Pineapple Klub, turning 58 and getting my "Mother of All Island Ukes!"

    Hau'oli La Hanau to me!
