At last, at last - a reunion set for Tuesday in Mexico

MANZANILLO, Colima, Mexico - The Four Headlamps will be back together Tuesday when Pat & Sanders arrive on the 3:46 p.m. Alaska Airlines express to be picked up by Michael in the blue Troupey.

It's hoped that the Headlamps reunion will coincide with open mic night at Palapa Joe's. If
not, the reunion (ok, first ever) performance of the group will have to wait until fall and Lube Room in the mountains.

For the past few days, Michael has been plinking on the ukulele - even cranking up his amplifier loud last night to try out the Jay & the Americans' hit,
Cara Mia.

With enough volume on the amp, it's no so obvious that Michael does
not have the range to carry that song off.

On the other hand, the Bryan Hyland hit from the 1960s - Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini - most certainly is within vocal range. And given that it only has three chords (C, Bb & F) it's likely The Four Headlamps will be able to make it work.

But the big question is
who will wear the bikini, so the audience has a visual?

Not Michael. He looks terrible in yellow.
