Wowzas! Third week in a row with double digit comments. Could it be that we've broken out of our new year funk? Hard to say, but let's keep it going gang! Here are three semi easy ones served up on a silver platter for ya.
Kelly Boy De Lima of Kapena "slayed" it (as usual) at the Ukulele Picnic this past Sunday, and, following his performance, walked by all the vendor booths, showing his Aloha, waving and greeting everyone on his way out. As he came by our VH07V booth, he pointed at my dad and said "I like your shirt!" so right dea... I just HAD to chase him down and give him a shirt for himself. He was as genuine and as real as they get. Not only talented and a true professional, but super humble and a class act. Mahalos Kelly Boy!
