Stopped by Picture Show Gallery today. It had been some time since I had been there and I was expecting to see Mike, the owner in his usual enthusiastic and upbeat self. Sadly, I learned he was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and is not doing well. For those of you who know Mike, he is facing this with great courage. When his co-worker asked what she should tell people, Mike said, "Just tell them that I am sick with cancer." I have always appreciated Mike's good nature, impeccible talent for custom framing, and his mega cool shop with art by Shag, Doug Horne, and many other Tiki artists. Please send your good thoughts to Mike and his family and stop by and support the gallery if you have time. He's a great guy who has contributed much to the Tiki community.

I heard about this...very sad. Mike is such an upbeat, friendly guy. Sending my best mana for him and his family at this time.

A week before Tiki Oasis Karen, Mike Adler's wife told us that they couldn't make Oasis this year. Mike Alder, the owner of the Picture Show Gallery in Seal Beach was just diagnosed with Metastic Adenocarcinoma. Mike is a true friend of the tiki community as well as the local business and social communities he lives and works in. I have spoke to his family and they think its a good idea to have a get-together or show of support. So we are going to have a "Party" or "Show of Support" for Mike at Don the Beachcomber September 17 @ 6pm. Stay tuned as details will be coming in quickly! This will be a benefit for the family. If you'd like to help out or participate, please PM WooHooWahine or myself.

Mike is an exceptionally sweet and nice man, this is a horrible thing, but with his good humor and positive attitude he can pull thru and beat it! I wish him and his Family all the best during these tough times.... I will say a prayer for my friend and his family.

I wonder if we should send cards to the picture show gallery?

For any of you who don't know Mike (and knowing Mike... not too many of you probably don't know him), he is such an engaging & fun guy who is completely full of life and love! Mike has been a great friend for years and I'm guessin' in Mike's style, he probably said out lout something like "wadda way to celebrate my 50th"! Mike you take good care my friend... my thoughts and prayers are with you!!

Like many others I consider Mike extended ohana. His absence at Tiki Oasis this year was felt before we even got there. He usually calls me when we are in route all fired up, asking when we will be arriving since he is usually already poolside and in full on Tiki Oasis mode. Mike is the most energetic, positive, stoked guy I know and his laugh and energy is contagious. Mike can go anywhere and make it fun . When I first got the news I had a hard time processing it. I went through a lot of stages of grief. Then I remembered who we are talking about. Mike is not somebody that is just going to throw up his hands and surrender. Mike is a hard charger and if anybody can conquer this bullshit, he’s da guy!!! So along with our positive thoughts and energy we should all look forward to many more good times with our friend Mike. Because in his words and I quote. “I can do anything im Mike Fuckin Adler”. Love that guy!!!!!!!
