    Yeah, she could well be right, & it seems it's only us old 'uns who do e-mail too.
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    That would be me. If I can get my wife (Barihappy) to vote we might have enough to start a small rock group. Can you imagine the fun we could have trying to name a group of 80+ year old ukulele "Rockers".

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

    Now we have the time to travel whenever we want instead of summer break. I take my Kamaka with me wherever we go. I can't do that with trumpet. I realized I just can't be bothered with trumpet any more. Two very nice professional horns are just sitting there. Each instrument is worth around 2 grand. I'm considering selling them and putting the money towards a new tenor.
    Wow you got to retire at 60? I live in the SF area. I figure I'll be able to retire when I'm dead.

    Nah, I'm in a moped forum that has people from their twenties up. Mostly early 30s. Great guys and I never get any guff showing up at rallies at 60.

    And the people who work at universities, apparently.

    The forums comment may have some merit though. I was pleasantly surprised when I joined to find a forum with this much history that was still active. But where else can you have such an organized variety of discussions?

    Among you guys, I’m feeling like a teen newbie right now.

    Exactly the same here. Retirement is a luxury.

    Intriguing.

    Of course, I don’t take photos of what I ate for breakfast and post them.
    I do, however, take photos of what strings I put on my ukulele.

    Different strokes/ strums for different folks.

    The vintage style bulletin board style forum we use here is a relic of the early 1990s and a baby step out of the dial-up AOL forums and chat rooms of yesteryear. I do feel like I'm living in the 1990s when I post here. And, yeah, these forums don't make any sense to the texting/social media/networked gaming generation. Forums are so dad burn slow moving and graphically dull. We actually have to write Old World sentences...
