Yep! As a kid in 1952, I remember the popularity of that expression. There were lots of buttons and bumper stickers with that on them.

I remember my Grandfather who was staying with us at the time, made me sit down with him and listen to Ike’s Inaugration Ceremoney on the Radio. I remember being bored as all git out, but I adored my Grandfather so I sat and listened.

How can a President's inaugural address seem boring to a little kid? :)

I remember it. My parents and grandparents were big supporters. Used to have the button, but afraid it's lost in the wind...

I tried to change "In Like Uke" to "I Like Uke," but it didn't work. Sorry

For a more complete pun, I would have changed it to "U Like Uke."

Another option.

That's okay, Jerry! Love the look of that sticker! Have a good week!

Another suggestion is to reverse the slogan to Uke I Like. With the word "uke" on top shaped like a uke.

Or, I likey ukey. : )

I saw the heading, and thought of James Coburn...

Yes, or Errol Flynn. That's why I wanted to change it.

Have you been to Normaskill lately? It's a long ride for me, but I'd like to go again.
