I'm learning a Hank Williams blues song and ran across this picture with Hank Sr. with a guitar, and little Jr. with a ukulele.

Maybe it's been posted before, but I had never seen it until now.

That's a great photo. The little string that is being used for a uke strap - too cute!

Hank Sr. looks so young but then again he died at age 29, wow what a young age to go. Great pic of him and Junior. Hank III has got a lot of Senior in him too.

Maybe a little too much of Hank, Sr. If you know what I mean. Live fast, die young is the goal there. Jr. and III have not been quite as successful at that...yet.

Little Hank. Little Georgie Harrison. Little Eric Clapton. Once upon a time it seemed kind of natural to stick four nylon strings into the hands of a kid.
Wish that had happened to me at age 5. And that I would have had any sense.

SR was born with Spina Biffida Occulta and reportedly had constant back pain. Obviously pain control technology in the 40's isn't what it is today, and the bottle was one way to help control it.

Hank Williams, Sr., really was an outstanding songwriter. A genuine gift there.
