    Shoe already has the bottle opener. Oh wait. Two shoes. The other can have the tuner.

    You probably don’t need a strap with the Saran Wrap ‘cause the uke will stick to it, especially the glossy ones.

    No such problem here when playing naked. Put some lotion on if skin is rough.

    People tend to avoid me BEFORE I start playing.

    We are definitely kin...
    I am the only member of my Monday night group of ~45 players that wipes down their ukulele after playing.
    (With a micro fiber towel)
    And my ukulele is half the price of some of the $1000 units that some people play.
    And we have snacks - cookies and candies and goodies at the mid-period break.

    An ukulele is an organic item that begins to dance when we breathe life into at through our playing. Therefore it is our responsibility to care for it.

    Ha, I always make sure I have a t shirt with no graphics when I play my nice Ukes. I even make sure to wear soft pants, never jeans. If I have jeans on my uke is adjusted higher not to sit on my lap. It may seem like a bit much, but I am in those clothes at home pretty much as is. If I’m out and about the Uke is probably not one I’m too worried about.

    I am getting better about not caring, but I would be extremely pissed at myself if I scratched a Uke with a belt or buttons. Although, I never know if I might sell some one day, so it’s an investment too.

    Like most people here, I browse sites that sell used ukuleles, and I've seen quite a few with scratches on the back. Maybe they were made by clothing, and maybe they weren't, but why take a chance?
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Maybe we should just go ahead and put a few scratches on our new ukes and get the inevitable over with. For those that need instruction on proper care, I suggest getting a copy of Willie Nelsons forthcoming manual " How to preserve the beauty of cherished acoustic instruments."

    I like to make it about everything - the total ukulele experience.
