    As soon as a child is born they should receive a ukulele - Charlie Brown said a banjo but I like this just as much

    That’s pretty darn cool. I saw an ukulele at a Christmas special on PBS. “Christmas at Belmont”. They used it to open up a piece by a Jazz Instrumental Group.

    Very nice, a ukulele always makes me smile that way as well.

    We always have about 24 people over for Christmas dinner every year. My nephews live in girl friend who is about 26 years old asked for and got a uke for Christmas. She was thrilled, thats all she could talk about. But it is so good to see how many young people are still getting into the uke. It is not a fad and it is not dieing off.

    She works at a home for children and they all have ukuleles and love to play and sing. Thanks for sharing that Mike, I appreciate the thought and sentiment

    I saw that in my post office too, and thought it was great. But, I think the kid is saying "Mom, wah...I wanted the red one!"

    Thanks Mike, that is great!
    Yes, an influx of kids and young adults into ukuleleworld is what is going to keep it going for a long long time.
    There are so many new groups that use 1 to several ukes in their performances these days.
    Our group is still seen as kind of a novelty around here, even though there are at least a half dozen local groups that use the ukulele.
    I constantly encourage young people to get involved. And I think the kids in UKC that make it through the illness will play for a long time.
    I feel that the uke will be popular long after us old farts are gone.
    What a cool picture, the Postmaster must play the uke....
    "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.
