Hey guys,

So this morning I notice that my new uke from Nuke-ulele is on it's way for delivery. I am worrying sick that it will come when I have class.....

THEN! I got an email from my teacher saying CLASS IS CANCELED!

So.... after a long hour and a half.... the uke is here!

All Mango, Kanile'a, Tenor uke that is just spectacular!!!

Here is a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgFLn5UqjEg) where I jam out on the uke (and play Dragon)

So this also a BIG, OLD, THANK YOU SHOUTOUT to Nuke-ulele! This is a wonderful instrument and I will be sure to play the heck out of it.

and just because I'm feeling a bit cranky the word is align (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/align).

A-line (http://fashion.about.com/cs/glossary/g/bldefaline.htm) is a kind of dress.

So unless you were making yourself pretty for the mailman, I think you meant the former.:D

Haha thanks, the change has been made. (I am actually a spelling nut myself, but the excitement of the uke overwhelmed that ;) )

Thanks again, Matt...your generosity brought about a great result...you have the ukulele of your dreams, and I have a nice uke as well, and we did a nice thing for my growing family, thanks again so much. I hope you still love the Kanile'a...I enjoyed watching your YouTube video!

what we go through when the new uke is coming, the antagonising and immoral wait for the delivery. i remember, one of the more nervous times of my life was when i was ordering my new ohana tk-300g. i had had to wait for over two weeks for the shop that i was buying from to open, and during the closed time, it said all ukes were out of stock. so there's me on the first day of opening, scrolling down the page on my comp. seeing how half of the ukes were in stock and how half were not in. wondering whether the uke i had set my heart on was going to be available, the tension was unbearable.

ps nice uke:love:
