    Default Ukulele in the Time of Coronavirus

    What is everybody doing during this time at home? I’ve been cleaning out the junk drawers and finally got to my strings drawer. Really wish I took a before photo because it was a mess. And what am I supposed to do with all these Oasis humidifier syringes?

    Syringes like that come in handy if you have to give medicine to animals (or maybe kids). Also technical glue jobs.

    On the 13th, work handed me cell phone and a laptop, and said "You will be working from home."

    I'm a secretary.

    I've been spending my days going through requests from parents asking for Chromebooks so their kids can participate in the remote learning program, emails telling us that they got the wrong chargers, the login won't work, they can log in but the software won't load... And 2-3 on-line meetings, using Zoom and Google Meet, both of which have their own learning curves...

    Oh, yeah... I work for a school district.

    Tomorrow, I will be going into my office to check for mail, timesheets, bills that need to be paid, and see if the supply chain is back so we can order more Chromebooks...

    And bringing my mom to radiation therapy last week, that was fun. Had to sit in the hospital parking garage for a couple of hours - patients only in the hospital.
    And grocery shopping and pharmacy runs for my parents

    I think I've played my ukes for a total of about 1 hour in the past week. (And had two paying gigs cancelled, but I knew that was going to happen at the beginning of the month.)

    I really want to go back to work in the office.

    I once heard mandolin player Avi Avital telling about a joke going around among mandolinists, that they spend half their time tuning their instruments and the other half playing out of tune. I guess the same will apply to a 10 string charango :-)

    When I was a nurse, I would have paid you a dollar each for those!

    All the best to your mother Kurt. I hope everything works out for her. And for you.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    Meantime I wrote a song, the Ballad of Lady Marigold and Mr Fox, based on the fairy tale about a serial killer, Mr Fox. Not a masterpiece as it turns out.
