...I searched through the forums and found someone suggested a UU Uke strap, but...what about Lanyards?

I keep all of my keys and charms on my lanyards (I have like 10) and...I think it'd be a nice idea to have a UU lanyard. Or even UU charms to hang from your Uke, YOU KNOW..."Uke Bling". Or a Seeso bobblehead :D haha...k, maybe I'm going too far with that. But a UU lanyard sounds like a nice idea.

Not to sound dumb - or old, but I currently have no lanyards in my life (other than one small compass that came with one) and with the exception of tradeshow/convention credentials (which typically hit the trash on my way out the door) I can't think of a need for one that I've personally had in ... well ... ever.

Am I just missing some fad (again)? I am just surprised at the amount of folks who seem interested and excited.

Lots of folks, largely of the female gender but not necessarily exclusively, use lanyards on their key rings.

When I was doing Clinical Pastoral Education (essentially interning as a hospital chaplain) most of the folks in the hospital wore their name badges on lanyards. It was handy too, as the name badges were encoded "keys" that allowed access to different areas of the hospital.

But I'm witcha, Grump. I wear a name badge about three days out of the year, so I have very, very little use for a lanyard.

They have stayed somewhat popular since... But the just recently made a surge back again when more and more schools started requiring wearing id badges when at school...

This is a BuffettNews.com lanyard with a name tag for parrot heads. I wear it to Jimmy Buffett concerts and tailgate parties to identify I'm on BuffettNews.com. It's kinda like wearing a UU t-shirt to a uke gatherings, you feel more at ease approaching strangers and then you find out you know each other on line.

The Lanyard - Billy Collins

The other day I was ricocheting slowly
off the blue walls of this room,
moving as if underwater from typewriter to piano,
from bookshelf to an envelope lying on the floor,
when I found myself in the L section of the dictionary
where my eyes fell upon the word lanyard.

No cookie nibbled by a French novelist
could send one into the past more suddenly—
a past where I sat at a workbench at a camp
by a deep Adirondack lake
learning how to braid long thin plastic strips
into a lanyard, a gift for my mother.

I had never seen anyone use a lanyard
or wear one, if that’s what you did with them,
but that did not keep me from crossing
strand over strand again and again
until I had made a boxy
red and white lanyard for my mother.

She gave me life and milk from her breasts,
and I gave her a lanyard.
She nursed me in many a sick room,
lifted spoons of medicine to my lips,
laid cold face-cloths on my forehead,
and then led me out into the airy light

and taught me to walk and swim,
and I, in turn, presented her with a lanyard.
Here are thousands of meals, she said,
and here is clothing and a good education.
And here is your lanyard, I replied,
which I made with a little help from a counselor.

Here is a breathing body and a beating heart,
strong legs, bones and teeth,
and two clear eyes to read the world, she whispered,
and here, I said, is the lanyard I made at camp.
And here, I wish to say to her now,
is a smaller gift—not the worn truth

that you can never repay your mother,
but the rueful admission that when she took
the two-tone lanyard from my hand,
I was as sure as a boy could be
that this useless, worthless thing I wove
out of boredom would be enough to make us even.

I use a lanyard as a strap for my Flea. You know that little loop they put on the Flea at the back of the neck where it joins the body? Yeah, I clip my lanyard to that. It's perfect.

Ditto! Ditto! Ditto! AND I use a lanyard to keep my work badge close at hand.... So... a UU lanyard would doubly rock!
