Tutorial Two,
Merry Holiday's to all and to all good mice.
Code:
[B][SIZE=3][COLOR="#008000"]Twas the night before Catmas  
 When all through the house  
 Not a kitten was stirring
 Nor chasing a mouse
   
 The kitties were snuggled  
 And tucked in their beds,  
 While visions of cat goodies  
 Danced in their heads.  
   
 Their stockings were hung  
 By the chimney with care,  
 In hope that St. Kittyclaws
 Soon would be there.  
   
The kittens were nestled
All snug in their beds
While visions of catnip
Danced in their heads
   
 Ma Tab with her whiskers
And I in my cap
Had just settled down
For a winter's cat nap
   
When outside the house
Came such noise and such strife,
So startled was I
That I used up a life!
   
 I jumped to the window
And gave a small 'mew'
I perched in the moonlight
Enjoying the view
   
The sight of the snowdrifts
So cold and so white
Made me purrfectly glad
To be indoors tonight!
   
 When, what to my wondering
Eyes did appear
But a feline sized sleigh
And eight tiny cat-deer

 With a little old driver
So lively and fit
I knew in a moment
He must be St. Kit
   
 So quickly they flew
And with such grace they came
Then Kittyclaws smiled
And mewed out their names:
   
 "Now Felix! Now Patches!
Now, Mittens and Muffy!
On, Twinkle! On, Whiskers!
On, Tiger and Fluffy!"
   
As kittens will pounce
On a fat ball of string
Tails all a-tumbling,
Ready to spring

So up to the door frame
The felines all flew
With a sleight full of toys
And St. Kittyclaws too

And then in a twinkling
I heard by the door
The scratching and pawing
Of each little claw

As I drew in my head
And was turning around
Kittyclaws came
Through the door with a bound

He was dressed all in fur
From his head to his feet
And his whiskers were sprinkled
With flurries and sleet

A bundle of toys
He had flung on his back
And he looked lake a peddler
Just opening his pack

His eyes--
how they twinkled!
His whiskers--
so merry!

His tail was
so fluffy,
His nose like 
a cherry!

His droll little mouth
Was drawn up like a bow
And the fur on his chin
Was as white as the snow!

The stump of a pipe
He held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled
His head like a wreath

He had a broad face
And a round little belly
That shook when he purred!
Like a bowl full of jelly

He was chubby and plump,
A right jolly old cat
And I laughed when I was him
Looking like that

A wink of his eye and
A flick of his tail;
I knew our stockings
Would bulge without fail;

He made not a sound;
He was silent and swift
Each of the kittens
Was given a gift

He washed his paws quickly,
And, twitching his nose,
He gave me a nod
Up the chimney he rose

He sprang to his sleigh,
And "meowed" to the team,
They all flew away 
In the moonlight's
soft gleam

But I heard him meow
Ere he drove out of sight--
Happy Cat-mas to all
And to all a good night!  [/COLOR][/SIZE][/B]
Book by Karen Anagnost I read usually every Christmas Eve :)

Not ukulele related, but I just wanted to share this Canadian's interpretation of Little Drummer Boy. I like it a lot.

Christmas morning here in Australia. The grandkids have opened the presents under the tree. The big kids have been down to the beach for our annual Christmas morning swim in the ocean. We had our main get together last night, and this morning the two boys go their separate ways to their wive's families. Our daughter and grand children are here for Christmas Lunch, then they're off, too. It's a great time for families.
Missing my dad a bit at this time, I am fortunate to have spent all but a handful of Christmases with him, but no more, alas.

Merry Christmas to you all, and hoping the future is brighter than it has seemed at times this past year.

Im sorry to hear about your dad Rusty. It is so hard to loose a parent and when the holidays come it really magnifies. Im there too and its been five years. Still feels like yesterday to me.

I felt like there should be a place where we could come together and try and support each other and wish each other well. Im glad you've shared with us here.

Here's hoping you have a great Christmas day with your family and I hope you have a bright fabulous 2017

Peace on Earth to People of Good Will!
Susan and I spent a lovely evening at my brother and sister's home this evening. Most pleasant. I even got to play Judi's vintage S1 Martin. Her Father and Grandfather made it for her when she was about five years old. Her 13 month old Grandson, James was as fascinated by the old Uke as I was. Happy Christmas to you'all!

Happy Holidays everyone! I had a great time singing with my nieces on Christmas Day!

That was so much fun and the perfect segue into having a perfectly fun New Year.

Thanks to everyone on UU who has had the spirit of either jumping in with video or a message. We should keep the happy fun going through to the New Year.

Everyone is welcome to join in if you like!

This is hilariously adorable!

This is just about how I felt when everyone left and I spent an hour picking up all the little bits and pieces from the floor and kitchen. I had 10 Grandchildren here for the day. You can imagine the fun they had and the mess they created. Its these times when the mess is viewed as nothing more than joy for me :D
