Happy NUD Day To Me!
Happy NUD Day Tooo Meeee!!!!

You know the rest of the song.

I went in to a local music store today for strings and
look at what I found...

75515

a KoAloha pineapple born in October, 2006

Not what I expected. This store is primarily a guitar and drum shop with a smattering of low to mid level ukes.

I knew better but played her anyway.
She had the sweetest chime-like voice with the power of church bells behind it.

'Never had a uke speak to me this strongly before and she definitely knew what to say.
So I went home and got some cash (no paper trail for swmbo) and two ukes that deserved more play time.
With some horse trading and a little cash she came home with me.

So not only did I buy a new uke, I actually sold two! That deserves a pat on the back because I didn't think that it was possible for me.
I have given some away but never sold anything.
Let me tell you, my heart was racing when we shook on the deal.

After being home and playing her for a while, I realized something...
I never got the strings!!

Thanks for taking the time to share my happy day!

Wait a minute, if it didn't have strings, how could it have "the sweetest chime-like voice with the power of church bells?" or did they actually take off the strings that were on it?

I think he went in to buy just strings but came out with a ukulele instead and forgot to even buy strings. :) wow kohanmike, your ukulele collection is getting larger, did you aquiare all that just last year? oh is that mahogany mandolin a concert scale or tenor?

When a uke speaks to you.......really speaks to you it MUST be acquired. While done, great story with a happy ending. Enjoy your new baby for many years to come
