Nick finally talked us into it. The Chuckawalla Rhythm Kings are going to Hawaii in January

2007 to do a whirlwind tour of Oahu.

Nick says he has connections for a cabin on the beach and some gigs at places that recall

the former glory of the Yuma Buffet. Polynesians without teeth who drink their Social

Security checks the first of every month.

Accordions and ukuleles. Grass skirts, rum drinks served in hollowed out pineapples, waking

up on the beach sunburned with poi in your hair.

Lori and Lorna weren't there, but what are they gonna do? Say no to Hawaii? Hah!
