View Full Version : Not just a new uke...

First of all, big thanks to Mike at Mainland. It arrived today! So, I open the box and enjoy the new toy but I don't think I'm half as excited as my wife is reading a local American paper, or as excited as the cat. Wow! A box! He hasn't come out of it in 2 hours.

That box trick works on kids too....
Hmmm, I haven't read a "local American paper" myself in about 10 years, and I live here. I'm curious, what did she find most interesting?
Enjoy your new toy!

Heh, that brings back memories. When I was stationed overseas for three years a couple of the guys had their families bundle up their local papers and send them every couple of weeks. We'd all sit around these guys rooms passing "small town Americana" around for hours whenever one of these packages came in - never mind we didn't know squat about the people or regions represented. Of course, now we have the internet and you can satisfy your thirst for "home" a little more easily.

You made a fine decision in choosing a Mainland. There's none finer IMO.

Ah, never mind! I just looked at your older posts and saw that it's a Red Cedar soprano. Excellent choice!
