    Default Played for Depression

    So, as I said awhile ago, my St Bernard dog Ladybird passed away on the 14th. I am over the loss now, but someone else in my family is not.

    That would be my other dog, Buster. He basically grew up with my St Bernard Ladybird for 10 years. They were best buddies. he is still adjusting to Ladybird being gone.

    I thought I would help him out with my Ukulele.



    The song is titled, "A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief."

    It was also my first time playing with linear tuning on my Concert.

    Very nice. I'm sure he appreciates the attention.

    They know their friend is missing and something's not right. They just don't know why.
    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.

    Beautiful. I’m sure Buster will feel better. How old is Buster?

    He is about ten years old. I say "about" because he is a rescue dog. Here is the story:

    When I lived in North Idaho, we were doing a church service project cleaning up an Indian reservation, about ten years ago. We were cleaning out a ravine when this little puppy, skinny as a pencil, came walking towards us.

    Obviously, he was abandoned.

    We gave him some food, and we were getting ready to take him to an animal shelter, when he cuddled up against my brother.

    He adopted us as his family, and we decided to keep him.

    When we got home, he was introduced to Ladybird, who passed away recently.

    They were best buddies.

    I still don't know exactly what breed he is, even after ten years. He's just Buster!

    Sorry about your dog, I lost my sweet little girl in Feb. and her little buddy in Aug. last year, she wasn't real happy since then. So I'm dogless now and in isolation...

    We had a virtual jam yesterday with Uke Club people through the Zoom app, it was kind of hard to follow, but good to "socialize".

    Looks like you and I are in the same boat. Sorry you lost your dogs too.

    A virtual jam? I imagine that would be very hard to follow along!
