It was an awesome time, great to see all my favorites there as well as meet new ones! Andy, stellar disc and your wife, Debbie, is extremely sweet and oh-so-supportive. You're a lucky man.

Desire ~ a new blossoming artist and her husband, Billy, is perfectly complimentary to the artistic tiki world. Thanks for sharing your ideas and creations.

Hope you all didn't mind hanging with "the troublemakers"... heh

Until next time! (guess I'll have to arrive pre-buzzed) oh boy. The beginning of the bad-girl rep??

Yeah, we had a blast last night too. My Tonga Hut cherry was finally popped. always missed all the other events, and glad my Wife forced me to go. Finally got to meet Kinny, Grog, Greg, Mel, Ravenne, Squid, Andy and his Wife, and a few others. Yes, Kinny got me talking after 1 drink....but trying to talk over Marty's DJing was difficult at times..especially talking art with Squid and Grog, wound up needing another Drink (Rum and Coke..WOOHOO!!!!) just to keep talking with a dry throat.

Fun was had by all...as far as I know, and we got all 3 of Andy's CD's with the last bit of money we had...Awesome thing. We've been wanting some Exotica that I can crank on in my discman while I work, and now I've got 3..YAAAAAYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!

Hoping, and looking forward to hittin another event with the crowd, and hope to meet others soon.

It looked like so many flashes were going off, I didn't take many pics. Here's a few towards the end of the event...

Forgot about Mark's midnight Q&A with "Manswers"
The questions were passable, the answers- freakin hilarious.
Hope Spike has the cahones to put Mark on.
-Andy
ps note Grog as the formidable Asst. Director.
Don't mess with Director Grog.
