    Just one thought..a uke player in the area has been fighting cancer, and with an eye on the inevitable (which we will all face), has started gifting some of his ukuleles to close friends that play. I would assume that either he has plans for his own kids...but he gets to see others enjoy the gift now before leaving. On a positive note, he is still going strong.
    Playing ukulele since January 2016.

    I hadn't really thought about it but...
    If I go first I hope my wife sells my ukes for what they're worth and not what I told her I paid for them 😁

    My Niece is in charge of the "Music library". Any member of the family can borrow an instrument for as long as they want; a lifetime of they continue to play. If they quit, they give the instrument back to the library. Works in principle, we'll see how scattered the three generations of instruments get to be when we elders are gone.

    I've worried about this for a long time. I don't want my wife to hafta struggle getting rid of all my stuff. I've been buying instruments lately, and every time I buy a new one, I feel guilty that my wife will be stuck with it.

    I suppose many of us oldies who have personal things have thought about it, but I still want new stuff that I want. The whole subject bothers me, and I try not to think about it any more.

    My mother is 104, so maybe I'll be around a few more years. My wifes kin lived long lives too though. I dunno . . .
    Kala "Spalted" baritone - Lo D GBD -
    Kala tenor eight string - gG cC EE AA

    Luna "Peace" concert - Hi-C GDA -
    Flea "Red" concert - Hi-G CEA -
    Kala "Exotic Mahogany" soprano - Hi-A DF#B

    Mahalo yellow "Smiley" soprano (Dad's Day gift) - C
    Ka-Lai Pineapple soprano (old) gift - C

    You're old when you bump into everything and hafta touch stuff to keep your balance.

    God gave us old age so we wouldn't mind dying so much.

    I already instructed my girls to call uncle Dave. That's downupdave. Dave will know what to do. If you ever see Dave selling some really nice customs. You would know I have immigrated to a better place.
    Just hope Dave sold them all to one good home. Hate to see them separated from each other.
