    This sounds like a hoot. Wonder is Sukie is going?
    "Those who bring sunshine and laughter to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves".

    Music washes from the soul, the dust of everyday living.

    Nope. I still am recuperating from my thumb surgery. I can't really even hold my ukulele.

    Just a bump to remind anyone in the Twin Cities area about our Uke fest this Saturday.

    I had the arthritic bone removed. It's a long recuperation process. But it's getting better.

    Sorry,

    I didn't know that was a thing. So they could take a bone out of my wrist and make my arthritis go away? Don't forget the uke fest people. It isn't all about me.

    Had a good time! Good sessions, lots of people. Lots going on at the venue! Thanks to MBOT and TwinCites Ukes'!

    Only so much time in a day and so much space. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced jams would be something to look at. Maybe 30 to 45 minute sessions. With new songs for a beginner it takes a while for the fingers to find their places. With jam sessions in mind and using the yellow book a posting of song that might be played would help some practice before hand.
