    Does playing in my driveway count? I tried to rustle up some yard sale customers this morning, and played my uke while waiting for anyone to show up. Normally Saturday mornings are prime time for selling used items in the driveway, but I got skunked today. Probably because it's a holiday weekend. Oh well, a few hours sitting in the shade playing my ukulele is a morning well spent.

    Too hot today, my porch (balcony actually) faces the sun with no shade. Instead I'm going to the park and meet with 8-10 acoustic players under a big shade tree from noon until 2pm.

    A day late and a dollar short. Commenting that is, I did play my ukulele on the porch yesterday. I enjoy playing on my front porch. Playing my ukulele and singing songs on my porch is actually what I credit for getting me started busking and playing for an audience. When I first started playing out there I would quit playing while someone walked past. Then after a while I kept playing while they walked past. Then after a while when I would see people coming I would play songs that I thought that the people walking past might like. I play a lot of You Ain't Nothin' But A Hound Dog. Lots of people come by walking their dogs. I play kids songs when they come by walking their kids. Finally I started trying to get people to stop and listen for a while. I put out lawn chairs by the sidewalk. So that's one of the ways I got past the "scared to play in front of people" phase of my musical journey. The natural progression for me was to then go out and find places with more pedestrian traffic to play for people passing by. Also I realized that I had to get off the porch if I wanted to make any money because I thought that it might be a little crass of me to put the tip jar down by the sidewalk. I did not know there was a porch playing day but next year I will try to do something special in recognition. Maybe I will put the jar out there just that one day and put a sign out saying that people can show their support for playing on the porch day by putting a buck or two in it. Marketing is everything.

    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.

    A day late, but my buddy and I played our Ukuleles on his back porch today.
    And 55 years ago, Burl Ives sang, “On the front porch with you” in the movie Summer Magic

    No way, it was way too hot here. It's as dumb as a Pride parade on June 30th. People have died.
    Now, make it December through April...I'm there!
