Singer Don Ho dies at 76

When I was eight years old and stationed in the Philippines, “Tiny Bubbles” was huge. We boys wanted to be cool and casual like Don Ho. (We also wanted to be lightning fast and deadly like Bruce Lee. Kids want to be lots of stuff, not all of it consistent.)

Funny how 76 used to seem unbelievably ancient to me. Now that it’s only 36 years away from my age now, it seems a little close for comfort.
