Hi, gang, I'm Charlie Trotter. I've played guitar for fifteen years. I mentioned an interest in the ukulele and my mother-in-law gave me her 50s-60s era Harmony soprano. I've had it a while, but lately the bug has bitten me again, and hard. You guys seem to have a really cool, welcoming community here and across the internet. The joy of these little things is contagious. I'm looking forward to meeting more of you.

Welcome to the UU. My mom lives in Ennis or is it Enis, Tx? Also there is a nice local luthier there in your parts as well as a uke club (not sure of their name) but I did buy a 6 string uke from one of the members.

Ennis is South and East of me. I'm looking for local groups but they seem to be well hidden. There's one over in Dallas I might check out, but I'd love to find a group in Fort Worth.

Kathy, thanks for the heads up. Can't make it this weekend; our house is locked down in quarantine after the baby had the stomach flu last night, but I think we will be in town for New Year's Day, so I will try hard to see if I can make it. I just joined your group online and am excited to meet local people.
