Aloha shirts — a.k.a. “Hawaiian shirts” — are my sartorial “thing”, and the Stehles have the best selection I’ve seen in a long time. I bought a lot of them, and over the week, I’ll post them here. The photo at the top of this article is the second in the set.

Save the aloha shirt from the alt-right
The “boogaloo boys” have adopted the aloha shirt as part of their uniform, and that’s a bad thing. To do my part to take it back from them, this article features photos of me in some of my favorite aloha shirts.
There will be people who will try to convince you that it’s code for “Fuck Joe Biden,” but that’s not the case.

I have to admit that I’m terrible with string instruments. However, Anitra’s been taking up the ukulele for the past few months, and the big Tampa Bay uke conference falls on my birthday weekend.
But hey, birthdays are a great time to take personal stock and even stretch oneself. So, I ordered a ukulele (we’re now a two-uke household), we got VIP tickets to the Tampa Bay Ukulele Getaway and also snagged rooms at the convention resort, the Sirata. It’s on St. Pete Beach, and right next door to where we got married — a return to the scene of the crime!
I’ve done a couple of evening’s worth of noodling on the uke, and I can already fumble my way through:
✅ Agree: I have a saying: “If you don’t write it down, it never happened!” There are so many distractions that it’s too easy to forget ideas, plans, and other things we were sure we’d remember unless we write them down (and just as important, review them later).
In an age where most of us have access to a pocket-size supercomputer, there’s no excuse not to write an idea down.
