    I think I may have done this before.
    I thought I was going to be first, but my tablet took ages to render the video and ginga beat me to it.
    New venue, no blue doors in the new house, and I haven't settled on a location for videos yet.

    Thanks to Brian, Charley, John, Rob and Robin for the initial hand-related contributions. The Playlist is available now ... I think!

    This is a quick original I thought of a couple of hours ago, in memory of Randy.




    Lyrics:

    I’ve always been someone who
    Misses everybody when they go on their way
    Some move on, others are called away
    In ways unforeseen, unplanned
    I keep their memory close at hand

    There was a time when
    Just ‘bout everybody lived their life in one place
    Went their whole life seeing the same face
    Now I know people in different lands
    I may never get to shake their hands
    But they’re still close at hand

    I try to understand, I
    Know that everybody has their own hills to climb
    They’ve got their tasks and I’ve got mine
    And if responsibilities should pull me away
    Know there’s part of me that always stays
    Stays somewhere close at hand
    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!

    A song called Hands can't go wrong for this season, this is a song by Phil Ochs. A name I had not heard of before one of my favorite artist Martyn Joseph decide to do a cover album of his songs.

    Well, you may just be getting up in Australia, and only in the early evening in the States, but here in deepest France it is bedtime. Very many thanks to all today's contributors ... your handiwork was much appreciated!

    I leave you with this encouraging thought, remember ... "On the other hand, you have different fingers."

    This is a Richard Thompson song.

    We're predicted to get about 14 inches (35 cm) of snow by Tuesday morning. I probably have to go out and use the snowblower around 10 PM tonight, because it will turn to rain for a while overnight and get too heavy to move.

    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!

    thank you for this week Val
    an original song for the season



    HANDS

    if my hands were made for building,
    they'd build a home for us to dwell
    & if my hands were made for poetry,
    the longing magic they would spell

    & if my hands were only flesh, dear,
    without the blood & soul & bone,
    you could mould me into anything,
    anything you want

    but my hands are bent & broken,
    lacing up a worn-out shoe
    but if my hands were made for anything
    they were made to hold you

    if my hands they were a lighthouse,
    they would guide you into shore
    if they could only undo dreams, dear;
    the hope that we longed for

    but my hands are bent & broken,
    lacing up a worn-out shoe
    but if my hands were made for anything
    they were made to hold you

    love it fades just like the sunset
    & rises on an endless moon
    but if my hands were made for anything
    they were made to hold you

    if my hands were made for anything
    they were made to hold you
