marcycloud: !!!!!

Rush: Please pause at the OPENING TITLE.

mda19083: I am always interested in good food

marcycloud: cued

Rush: Sometimes copies lack the Fox intro!

Hawaii_Steve: The YouTube has omitted the opening credits for tonight’s film.

Hawaii_Steve: Rush, there are no opening titles.

Rush: The Fox intros were placed there when these DVD sets were produced. The earliest Chan movies would not have had the famour 20th Chentury-Fox intro, at they were then simply “Fox Film.

Rush: (famous)

Louise2: mda: that would be a fun addition to Rush’s site: recipes from Chan movies!

Nothere: James J neibar objexts to that list Rush

Rush: Yes, Steve.

Rush: We now see Oland’s “take” on Chan.


Rush: Biggers really was pleased with Oland’s Chan in “Charlie Chan Carries On.”

Louise2: Weird writing

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: emergenzee?

Rush: Yes, Louise!

Rush: A correct “:N” followed by a reversed one!

DanVenture: Curious. A rock wouldn’t have gone too far thrown.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: I have’nt seen you since Egypt.

Len Freeman: Thomas Beck a good guy

Rush: Yes, DV.

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: If it was my ONLY warning I’d thank you to write NEATLY, Monsieur Miscreant!

Len Freeman: Jimmy Stewart type

Rush: Probably tossed quickly by someone who ran off!

DanVenture: Wouldn’t a bystander have yelled or something? Driver dive out to assault the bozo?

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: The papers have ALWAYS been full of it.

Rush: As it is raining, maybe not too many people around.

Nothere: Hey th thrower was lucky it wasn’t a 2000 car. The rock would have bounced off.

Louise2: He doesn’t drink

Rush: Often full of FISH, perhaps…

mda19083: does anyone keep a running count of the number of Charlie’s aphorisms for each film?

DanVenture: Indeed, Nothere.

Rush: The obnoxious artist arrives.

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Cher Shay, la Femme?

Phil & Mrs. Phil: mebarassing?

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: genital in heels

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Mebarrassing! I like that, Phils! I stea,,

Nothere: Monsieur Angel is a Footpad

Rush: The drawings for this film….Eddie Vitch: Sketch Artist

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Notty! I also will defend your clown!

Rush: I also suspect that Keye Luke had a hand in this area as well!

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Footpad spelt Valver

Rush: We just saw a clue.

Louise2: l’ange and la renarde are clever tonite

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: spelt volver, by the way, is daptoof.

Rush: danse apache – (French) “Ruffian dance.” Apache dance is a very dramatic dance associated with popular Parisian street culture in the early 20th century. The name of the dance is taken from Parisian street gangs, which were named for the American Indian tribe because of the savagery of the thugs. The dance is sometimes said to portray a violent confrontation between a pimp and a prostitute. It includes mocking slaps and punches, the man picking up and throwing the woman off the ground, or lifting and carrying her while she struggles or appears unconscious. In some instances, the woman may fight back.

Louise2: But Charlie dances beautifully

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: APPLESAUCE

Rush: I agree, burt I would doubt he’s do THIS dance!

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Not HER again

Louise2: okay, this is wild every year: differing opinions abound

Rush: (He’d)

hounder: really dislike this style of dance

Phil & Mrs. Phil: This dance is nearly as violent as the horse crash in CC at the Race Track.

Fredsmom: Thanks Rush for interesting info!

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Drunk & Sailor!

Rush: From our “Glossary,” FM.

Rush: LOTS there.

Nothere: I just always called it the fight dance.

Louise2: In any case, hard dance to do!

Louise2: TWACK!

Rush: Louise, please note that: “In some instances, the woman may fight back.”

sarabell2: I like apache dancing. You have to be good to do it. I liked it when Buster Keaton did it too.

Nothere: Must get expensive replacing that glass after every dance.

Rush: And, when Popeye and Bluto did it!

Nothere: O.k. your murdered now tell me the important info you learned.

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Thank gawd that’s done for another year

Fredsmom: Ha!

Rush: πŸ™‚

Louise2: I love watching that dance. In fact dancing shows up in many Chan films.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Cue the can

Matt1: <tin can>

Rush: TYSM, Matt….

Phil & Mrs. Phil: She has a picture of..herself?

Rush: For mat and MDA, When someone died when we had sound effects in the past, Matt would use the tincan sound, as there was no “bucket” sound!

Rush: We now do it through words!

Rush: πŸ™‚

mda19083: TYSM – love it!

Rush: πŸ˜‰

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: We must find a way to bring sound to our motion pictures

Rush: CC holds back a sneeze….

Phil & Mrs. Phil: And since it’s a movie, I always feel compelled to type “Cue the can.”

Louise2: a recipe!

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: In this town, every door is a Fren h

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: French door

Nothere: Aha a reipe for apple pie. Now if we could just find the meraunge.

Rush: “Recipe for apple pie”…a candidate for the Message Board recipes!

Rush: Yes!

Louise2: Yes Rush!

Rush: I love this part…where Cc thanks the clock…

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: *G-sundheight*

Louise2: Rush, is there an easy way to make a list of the foods mentioned in Chan?


Len Freeman: TYSM

Rush: Yes.

Rush: Nice touch.

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Rush, is ten thousand francs comparable to 10,000 francs?

Louise2: Watch out!

Rush: Close one!

mda19083: look up Charle

Rush: CC has a gun.

Nothere: Well with inflation 10k frances just isn’t 10k francs

Rush: Right, NT!

Rush: In fact…only EUROS today!

Nothere: Of course CC has a gun. He’s a cop. The wrters could never remember that.

mda19083: Keye Luke is the best!

Fredsmom: POP!

Len Freeman: First time

Matt1: They make a great pair

Rush: Approprately, his first on screen words were, “Hello, POP!”

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: A youthful franc!

Nothere: Well you said Lee was around. You just didn’t mention the bathroom.

Louise2: Business?

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Done

Rush: Yes, Louise.

Rush: We see Lee on business again in “Charlie Chan in Shanghai.”

Rush: I do hope to see Paris again on day.

Rush: (one)

Fredsmom: Pince nez glasses

Nothere: Well sadly Paris just isn’t the ciy it was, but it’s still there.

Rush: Yes.

Hawaii_Steve: Author Hanke says this film is perhaps the best examaple of a Chan mystery. It definately holds my attention.

Nothere: So what do we think of her collar?

Rush: Agreed, Steve.

hounder: yuk

Rush: Very fashionable.

Louise2: Her collar: can’t decide what it wants to be

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Uh-oh.

Rush: A BAD idea.

Rush: “okay, Pop.”

Rush: Great to go to Paris where everyone speaks perfect English!

Rush: Another clue…

Nothere: Cower before my Mustache of Power!

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: He needs Courage

Phil & Mrs. Phil: And we saw him last week as the butler.

Rush: Or a slug of absinthe…

Rush: Yes, Phil.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Can’t remember his name.

Fredsmom: good eye Phil

Nothere: You take that back. As a banker I resent it.

Rush: And, please say hello to Mrs. Phil, Phil!

Louise2: Absinthe indeed

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: I’ll deposit some kindness of heart, then.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Nice of you Rush.

Rush: Better than gold, Angel!

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Typically.

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: BUY WAR BONDS. Not French ones, though.

Nothere: And the writers again forget Chan is not a P.I.

Rush: Is she watching with us, Phil?

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Indeed Rush.

Nothere: But do buy French fries.

Rush: Very good!

Rush: πŸ™‚

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: One is Helvetica, the other Times Roman.

Nothere: Bye Phils

Louise2: Let’s panic

Rush: Altogether we have 17 here tonight…18 with the departed GS.

Nothere: And one cat

Rush: AH!

Rush: Lest we ignore!

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Notty, let’s LIVE! Garson, two orders of CURLY Franch Fries!

Louise2: 19 I think: someone said they had a companion with them

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Another CC in London actor right there.

Len Freeman: interruption

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: FOX HEARD THAT!

Rush: Yes, Phil.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: He was the Home Secretary’s secretary.

Rush: Arc d’Triomphe in the background.

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: He’s totally guilty, right?

Nothere: Ah but does the Home Secretary’s secretary have a secretary?

Rush: “Home, James…”

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Something like that NT.

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: AAHOOGAH

Rush: Home, James! – (Catchphrase) The original saying, dating from the mid-1800s and spoken to a coach driver, was supposedly “Home, James, and don’t spare the horses!” There was a 1934 song by Fred Hillebrand (1893-1963) with the same phrase as a title: Home, James, and Don’t Spare the Horses is the modern origin of the catchphrase; it was in general usage by the early 1930s.

Rush: Nice car.

Len Freeman: step-in out!

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Have the horses EVER been

Rush: And…she wanders of toward a dubious fate…

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: spared?

Rush: Clue here.

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Ce

mda19083: There’s that creepy guy again!

Rush: Yes.

Rush: CLUE!

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Cecil B. DeGaulle was a GRATE director!

Rush: Where did you find that book, Steve?

Rush: I forgot to ask.

Rush: On the Internet or in a store?

Nothere: Don’t you hate when your sneaking around, and someone starts copying you.

Rush: Yes, NT! Annoying!

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Whenever I walk around in a dark room I bump into things.

Rush: I move along VERY carefully, Phil.

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: What a router.

Louise2: Easy come, easy go.

Nothere: Your gonna need to work on theat before becoming a cat burglar. Phil…or Mrs Phill…Both maybe?

Rush: BIG ERROR!!!

Louise2: Yikes, what a dummy

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: ROTTER! Geez, Spellcheck is a beach!

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Who would burgle a cat?

Len Freeman: el creepo

Rush: Lee at work!

Nothere: I’m not trying to get away. I’m just holding a room full of people at gunpoint because I’m innocent.

Rush: We will see a flashback later.

Rush: Look out the window.

Rush: We will see the Moulin Rouge.

Louise2: Blame the women

Rush: “Cherchez la femme…”

Nothere: Well he has a 50% chance that the killer is a wpoman.

Hawaii_Steve: Yes Rush. Lots of wonderful atmosphere of Paris.

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Notty, you exhibit profound criminal tendencies. You WILL join us next week again, won’t you?

Rush: See the windmill?

Rush: Moulin Rouge.

Nothere: I can;’t join again. I’m not here now:)

Rush: This cafe is on the Rue Pigalle.

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: I like regular rouge.

Hawaii_Steve: Yes, I see the windmill.

Rush: Nice pun, NT!

Rush: I am starting to crave doughnuts…

Fredsmom: haha!

Nothere: Glazed or chocolate?

Rush: Glazed!

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Cue the can!

Rush: Yes, Matt?

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Did they have donuts in prewar Paree? I know they ended up with PLENTY of HOLES.

mda19083: I have a good recipe for doughnuts

sarabell2: Do you have Krispy Kreme in San Diego?

Rush: NICE!

Rush: Please post!

Rush: “Doughnuts a la Charlie Chan in Paris”

Nothere: Alright I did it I stabbed him. But he was shot. Well inspector one of us is confused.

Fredsmom: πŸ™‚

Rush: Including, of course, doughnut holes!

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Mda, will you snare your recipe?

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: *share*

Louise2: snare it she must

mda19083: she was pretty adamant about not killing him

Rush: Message passed here…and a clue to us!

Nothere: No Louise we only snare those who won’t share. so there.

mda19083: secret family recipe – let me think about it

DanVenture: Do drunks always act this way, or is this just for the movie’s drama??

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: He is an exploration.

hounder: that small sar gets them every time

Rush: “Hasty conclusion like gunpowder – easy to explode.”

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox: Ho ho!

Rush: Imagine humid air…

Hawaii_Steve: Thank you. Great being with the old gang again.

Rush: I hope you can make it next week, too!

Rush: Thank YOU, MDA!

Rush: I hope that you, too, will come again next week!

Rush: Nice meeting you.

Hawaii_Steve: We’ll see. I was impressed by the fine details of this film. And the use of camera movement. Wonderful direction.

Rush: Yes!

Louise2 has left this room

Rush: Where did you get the book, steve?

Rush: Just curious.

Hawaii_Steve: I’ve had it for years. Just pulled it out for an afternoon read.

Rush: AH!

Rush: Nice!

Hawaii_Steve: Directed by Lewis Seiler. He replaced Hamilton Mc.

Rush: I remember when I bought mine. i got it from someone in L.A. years ago.

Rush: Yes.

Rush: hamilton MacFadden seemed to have been a bit “scattered” at that time!

Hawaii_Steve: Me too. Probably at one of those film conversations in North Hollywood.

Rush: I think he wanted to work on the OTHERE side of the camera!

Rush: (other)

Hawaii_Steve: I was never impressed with the direction of the Black Camel. Its straight forward direction.

Hawaii_Steve: As hanke states, Mr. Seiler moves the camera.

Rush: Yes. But the Honolulu scenery…and your side of the island..make up for that for me!

Hawaii_Steve: The shot of of starting a scene down low, then titling to street level, then panning up to the roof with begger is most creative for 1935.

Rush: I thought that just the fact that they were on location on Oahu for “The Black camel” was impressive!

Rush: especially with that early gear!

Hawaii_Steve: This is the same year that James Whale did such a wonderful job directing the Bride of Frankenstein. Also, a good use of camera movement.

Rush: And they DID make use of the locale!

Rush: Even down to the use of Prospect Street…accurately, and the Pali road, etc.

Rush: And the drive in Waikiki.

Hawaii_Steve: Because “paris” was shot at the studio, money could be spent of set design, lighting, etc. creating mood and atmospher. “Paris” is a much better production than “Camel.” in my opinion.

Rush: I thought that “The Bride of Frankenstein” was superior to the first film!

Rush: “Frankenstein.”

MonsieurAngel avec Ze Fox has left this room

mda19083 has left this room

Rush: I do agree, steve, yes.

Hawaii_Steve: Also, Oland seems more relaxed as Chan. With Camel, he is still finding the character.

Rush: And, you are right, being in a studio helped a lot.

Hawaii_Steve: Question: Did Biggers and Oland ever meet?

Rush: There were some great sets, though!

Rush: Including the sewer scenes!

Rush: I would imagine those were leftover fro anoother movie.

Hawaii_Steve: The sewer scenes reminded me of 1925 Phantom.

Rush: I am not sure about their meeting face-to-face. Interestingly, I have an ivory page-turner that Biggers had evidently given to oland for a gift!

Rush: he DID like his portrayal of Charlie Chan for sure!

Rush: And, I think Biggers was very happy when chan was finally the mnain character in the films!

Hawaii_Steve: The scenery of Hawaii is always beautiful, even shot by an 8mm home movie. Hawaii is a plus. But Camel drags a bit, again due to Hamilton’s standard direction.

Rush: Also, what is sort of funny in “Thje Black camel” are how the mobs of locals can be seen in some of the shots!

Hawaii_Steve: I believe there is quote somewhere … that upon seeing Oland as CC, Biggers said, “they finally got it right.”

Rush: Yes!

Hawaii_Steve: It most have been quite a projecct to hall over those big 35mm cameras to Honolulu.

Hawaii_Steve: In 1931, there were no steady-cams like today.

Rush: Right!

Rush: There was a good tracking shot on the beach at kailua.

Hawaii_Steve: When Hanke wrote his book, Keye Luke was still alive. The chapter about “Paris” includes Luke’s recallexations.

Rush: And, that’s another one where we see the crowd watching!

Rush: Yes! I think he dedicated the book to him.

Rush: Something like “to our eternal Number One Son.”

Rush: I thought I reacalled that somewhere.

Hawaii_Steve: After living in Hawaii for 26 years, I can pick apart “Camel” in detail. The studio lights at Kailua Beach make the scene unnatural for me. Going into Shela’s tent at the beach is an ackward moment too. Just for me.

Rush: Just looked…not on the dedication page.

Rush: Yes, on those lights!

Hawaii_Steve: Book (c) 1989 by Ken Hanke.

Rush: We can tell how the weather changed and the clouds came in and they went to the lights!

Hawaii_Steve: Luke died in the 1990s, I believe.

Rush: yes…1991, I believe.

Hawaii_Steve: You are correct.

Rush: I took a picture of his star on Hollywood blvd. once, when we stayed at the hollywood roosevelt.

Hawaii_Steve: The intro scene between Luke and Oland is wonderful. I feel a warmth in that scene.

Rush: In fact, it is right near there.

Rush: YES!

Rush: I love that!

Rush: The PERFECT intro!

Rush: “Hello, Pop!”

Hawaii_Steve: This film is the first time we see the father – son relationship. It hasn’t become a clique (sp?) yet.

Rush: Yes.

Rush: Sons appeared in a couple of the “lost” films…

Hawaii_Steve: Hanke says Luke played his part as real. Young went over the top as #2 Son.

Rush: but this was the first inclusion in a very meaningful way!

Rush: Yes!

Hawaii_Steve: Interesting that Luke drew newspaper ads for the Chan films before he became N1S.

Rush: And Keye Luke and Warner Oland seemed to have actually had something of an off screen father son relationship at times!

Hawaii_Steve: The drawings that we see in Paris, did Luke draw them? Do you know?

Rush: In fact, in the 1985 interview I transcribed, Keye luke calls Oland Poppa.

Hawaii_Steve: I recall reading that Oland and Luke went for drive up into the Hollywood Hills for some reason.

Rush: The sketch artist was someone else, BUT…I think that the “finished” drawing we saw was by Luke!

Rush: it really looks like his style!

Rush: I mean, he was an accomplished artist.

Rush: Yes!

Hawaii_Steve: I wonderful where Luke’s drawings are today? Do you know?

Rush: They were up at a japanese pagoda that overlooks Hollywood!

Rush: Then Luke tells of a bus of tourists being dropped off…

Rush: That is a part of his 1985 interview.

Rush: it was recorded for canadian TV.


Rush: That’s the page of the interview.

Hawaii_Steve: Luke didn’t have any children. I wonder what happened to his personal scrapbooks, etc.

Rush: I have it on a privately made DVD.

Rush: Yes. Good question!

Rush: Maybe his things went to a relative that I worked for at one point…Martha longenecker.

Hawaii_Steve: Wikipedia says his wife died in 1979. Also, there is a copy of his signature.

Rush: She ran the Mingei Gallery in San Diego.

Rush: Of course, i never new of her Keye Luke connection till fairly recently.

Rush: She was difficult to work with!

Hawaii_Steve: Before you leave the area, you should track her down.

Rush: Also, there were members of the keye Luke family living in San Diego.

Rush: I met them once at the Old town Music Hall.

Rush: maybe they got his things.

Rush: I believe she’s with her ancestors now.

Hawaii_Steve: You know, there’s the Luke Museum in Oregon, or some place up north. There is a website.

Rush: She was not young when I worked for her…nearly 30 years ago.

Rush: Must be Washington state.

Rush: perhaps Seattle…his home town.

Hawaii_Steve: Just read that Steven Spielberg donated the Citizen Kane sled to a Hollywood Museum.

Rush: WOW!

Rush: What a pice of history!!!

Hawaii_Steve: Somebody needs to a family tree for the Chan actors. Find out where there belonings went.

Rush: Which museum?

Rush: I would agree!

Rush: I have a couple of Oland’s things.

Rush: Including, I firmly feel, his scrapbook for his early films up to about 1932.

Hawaii_Steve: BTW, I read a section of Lou’s newsletter. It looks great, but its filled with typos. Lou is not writer.

Rush: Yeah.

Hawaii_Steve: That’s right, you have the Oland scrapbook.

Rush: I proofed it, but he might have erred when retyping it.

Rush: It is possible I missed one or two, I guess!

Rush: Yes, I have that.

Rush: the whole thing is available at the site.

Hawaii_Steve: Do you have original autographs of the Chan actors?

Rush: You mean besides stills?

Hawaii_Steve: Yes.

Rush: Personal photos?

Rush: I do have one with oland and his wife.

Hawaii_Steve: Do you have Luke or Yung’s autographs?

Rush: it was from their trip through Honolulu to China.

Rush: It was origianally in a scrapbook, I could tell., maybe one of the Olands’?

Rush: yes on the autographs.

Hawaii_Steve: I remember seeing Luke’s autograph on eBay.

Rush: Oland’s too.

Rush: Yes, he was apparently pretty prolific in that regard!

Hawaii_Steve: I think you told me that you have an autographed cookbook of Yung’s. Correct?

Rush: I have a few.

Rush: YES!

Rush: πŸ™‚

Hawaii_Steve: Nice. It’s a shame that we didn’t creat a CC Museum somewhere.

Rush: I agree.

Rush: till a pipe dream of mine!

Hawaii_Steve: I need to contact he man who operates the Stooge Museum and see how its doing?

Rush: Even if some place in Honolulu would like to set aside a section!

Rush: Maybe a themed restaurant.

Rush: That’s an idea, steve.

Hawaii_Steve: Downtown Honolulu has become very dangerous these days. The security officers for the radio station got beat up last weekend. During the daytime.

Rush: Sad.

Rush: Be careful.

Rush: But I am sure you are.

Hawaii_Steve: Today I heard a radio report that the pandemic is not going to go away during our lifetime. It will always be here. But we will have new drugs.

Rush: Life MUST go on.

Rush: Fear is the biggest problem.

Rush: Everyone I know who got it had mild symptoms.

Hawaii_Steve: O’Toole’s Bar, where we start the Chan tour has closed up. Most of the shops in the area are closed too.

Rush: Hopefully they will be able to open again!

Hawaii_Steve: All the real estate sites that Lou and I looked at for a Chan Bookstore, club, etc. are closed up.

Rush: brb.

Hawaii_Steve: Well … it’s may be time to go.

Hawaii_Steve: Are you working?

Hawaii_Steve: How’s the wife and kids?

Rush: sorry.

Rush: was on the phone.

Rush: Our neighbor is a firemaN, AND HE SAID HE CAN GET ME VACCINATED.

Hawaii_Steve: I really enjoyed this film tonight.

Rush: Cap lock!

Rush: Marie and the girls are fine, thank you!

Hawaii_Steve: Three weeks ago, I got my first shot. At Walgreens.

Rush: Sarah goes off to college next year!

Rush: can you believe it>?>??

Hawaii_Steve: The kids are growing up.

Rush: Ah, good on the shot.

Rush: FAST!

Rush: Rachel starts high school in Iowa.

Hawaii_Steve: Oahu numbers in the three digits now.

Rush: We met some girls who will be friends when we were there during Christmas.

Hawaii_Steve: Will you have a job when you move to Iowa?

Rush: Things will get better…if allowed to get there!

Rush: I am optimistic about getting a job.

Rush: I tghink with my teaching experience I can at least get sub work or classroom aide.

Hawaii_Steve: That is good.

Rush: I heard one district is pretty desperate for teachers.

Rush: Marie wants to take a different road.

Rush: Tired of full time teaching!

Hawaii_Steve: No harm trying something new.

Rush: She’s definetely earned that option!!!

Rush: Agreed!

Rush: Well…

Rush: I should be going….

Hawaii_Steve: Yes, its time to go.

Rush: 7:20 here.

Rush: Take care…

Hawaii_Steve: I enjoyed talking to you tonight. Thank you.

Hawaii_Steve: And you too.

Rush: Please keep in touch!

Rush: see you next week, hopefully!

Hawaii_Steve: Will do. Have a good evening.

Rush: Okay!

Hawaii_Steve: Aloha.
