    Hey from Ames. How is the ukulele scene in Fairfield? Not much here in Ames. You aren't by chance going down to the Ukulele Festival in New Haven, Mo. this weekend? The wife and I are heading down there tomorrow for the weekend. So I just thought that I would introduce myself and say hi. We are not so far apart. If you are ever in the Ames area give me a call. 515-231-2595.
