Congrats!


I know I have a weak mind but I keep reading your user name as Paul Reed Smith. Not a bad thing.

That is a lovely "Legend". I hope Ohana will use it in their promotions somehow.

It's short and very sweet.

You did a great job, and it was a delight to read!

Keep strummin',

Congrats! I would've picked yours too.

Your username still freaks me out, because my dad's name is Paul Smith and he's 60. Keep thinking he's on here, post-stalking me. ;)

Congrats to Smithpaul60, there were so many entries popping up it was hard to keep up with the better stories among them. I hope you have a lot of fun with that Ohana, if only they sold them here in Japan :D


Aldrine and Aaron read them all and I read 2.
Wow. It makes me wonder who the runner up was. So close but no cigar! Ah, uke of course.

More than congrats Smithpaul60...

You got talent! That was excellent in every way. A well deserved win and well deserved respect from a fellow UUer. Do you write songs as well as great stories? I'm sure everyone would like to see some if you do...
