Hope you like my rendition of the Four Seasons' "Big Girls Don't Cry." Used my kazookulele in this one.

This is my last video of 2018. As the year winds down, allow me to say a heartfelt "THANKS" to everyone who has left a kind word and feedback. I'll try to keep it going next year. If I counted correctly, I've made 35 ukulele videos this year, one short of my goal of making three videos a month. I'm slowing down. My goal used to be 50 a year!

Thanks, Dave, and I look forward to your videos as well! We did enjoy a nice lunch of turkey porridge! :)

John mate. I love your singing and playing, and although I've never had the honour of meeting you personally, from what I've seen on here I'd love you as a mate as well.
But, if I ever get a chance to come out to your neck of the woods, PLEASE don't EVER invite me for lunch!! Turkey porridge indeed!! Yeuk!! lol

Ha ha! It might not sound good, but "jook" (a Korean dish) is the ultimate comfort food in my book! Please give it a try if you ever have a chance! :)

I loved the ending, John. I also like jook. I recently found some microwaveable jook in a can at a Korean grocery store near me.

Have a great 2019.

Thanks, Luke! I have a recipe for jook, but last time I tried to make it, it didn't turn out so good, but luckily my wife can make it. I wish you a great 2019, too! :)

Thanks, Campbell! Happy New Year to you and yours! :)

Wonderful song, John! Thanks for all of the great videos this year, and (hopefully) more to follow in 2019. I enjoyed the tag after the song ended, I felt like I was watching the post-credit sequences in a Marvel Universe movie!

Thanks, Bill! I'll try to keep it going next year. :) Yeah, nowadays you have to watch a movie all the way to the end, or you might miss something. I missed out on the extra scene at the end of the latest Jurassic World movie! Kind of a good idea to include something extra at the end of YouTube videos, too!

Haha. I'll look it up and give it a try. In my ignorance I'd never heard of it but thought it was just a concoction of your granddaughter's she made you eat. You wouldn't believe what MY 6 year old make ME eat from time to time. I had a Marmite and Jelly Baby sandwich once...delicious! lol

Ha ha! I understand, Dave. My granddaughter likes to make fake Coca-cola by adding soy sauce to a glass of ice water. She "tricks" me into drinking it and she always cracks up when I dash to the kitchen sink to spit it out! I enjoy making her laugh like that!

John your videos are just excellent. You must spend an awful lot of time producing these works of art. I am sorry to say you was upstaged again by you granddaughter. Very lovely! I was on the same bill as the Four Seasons in Yorkshire in the UK back in the 70s. I seem to remember them as very amiable guys. It was the time of their hit "Oh what a night"
Happy New Year to you (and your granddaughter of course!). Mike

Thanks, Mike. I definitely need blocks of time to work on my videos, and each video usually takes several hours (including practice and editing), but I love the creative challenge so I don't mind. And I don't mind being upstaged by my granddaughter. I welcome it! I'm hoping she'll perform with me in a video someday. How great that you and the Four Seasons could meet each other. I remember their "Oh, What a Night" very well! Happy New Year to you and yours! :)

Wow, Mike! The only time I've been on the same bill as somebody else was in KFC!! lol

John. My 6 year old - like many young girls that age - never stops singing, dancing & wanting to be 'a Star'. I finally got her to sing something with me and as soon as the camera started filming she went all shy on me. I'll post it over in the guitar section here so you can have a quick look if you wish. lol
I look forward to yours with your young lady which will, I'm sure as always, reflect her in a much better light than mine does...er...mine. lol

Thanks mate. Left to her own devices she usually sings with much less inhibition!! lol

John ....I am glad you hired your two brothers back.
Yes you need to put the uke down to have lunch with your grand daughter. That was so cute.
Happy New Year! Looking forward to more video from you.

Thanks, Brenda! I'm blessed to be living next door to my granddaughter and cherish every moment with her. I do hope to teach her how to play the ukulele without forcing it on her, so we'll have to see how it goes. She likes watching grampa's "funny" videos, so there's hope. I wish you and yours a very happy 2019! Looking forward to your videos in the coming year as well! :)

Aloha John,
Another great video. Nice to see your granddaughter make an appearance. Look forward to future videos with her singing and playing with you. Have a healthy, happy, blessed New Year.
