    So when we can do Spring Into Uke again, bring about 10 with you, and offer them for sale... I bet you sell at least 4-5.


    That ought to finance another few...
    Banjo Ukes: Southern Cross, Firefly, Stella
    Sopranos: Donaldson, Timms, Moku, Waterman, Bugsgear, Outdoor, Waverly Street, Harmony
    Concerts:Cocobolo #460 &#412, Ohana CK450QEL, CK-65D, Rosewood Vita, Mahogany Vita,
    Donaldson Custom, Epi Les Paul, National Triolian Reso, Republic
    Tenors: Kala KA-KTG-CY, KoAloha Sceptre, Fluke, Cordoba 20TM
    Bass: Fluke Timber

    Am I done?

    ...Maybe?...

    That's an absolutely lovely collection of ukes, Jerry41! ...It's possible that you and a few others (myself assisting) have single-handedly kept the ukulele industry afloat during these pandemic times.

    ...I'm still in favor of the humidified uke room idea. Who knows, maybe the space will fill and that number - whatever it may be - will be the arbitrary cap on the # of ukes that can be enjoyed at any given time??

    Jerry, I've written in the past that you need to build a "museum" room onto your house for all your ukes, but since that doesn't seem to be happening, I have another suggestion.

    The Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria (the guy who started WW1 by being assassinated) was said to have hunted and killed over 100,000 animals and mounted on his wall over 4,000 heads and antlers. So my suggestion to you is to completely climate control your house, get lots of wall hangers and mount the 200 or 300 ukuleles throughout the house. With a slight change of lyrics, you could sing the song Gaston sung in Beauty and the Beast: "I use ukuleles in all my decorating..."

    That's a good idea. I wonder if that would work with a Virtual Spring into Uke.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    In that case, it's good someone bumped him off. Otherwise, European kids would be asking, "What's an animal, Mommy?"

    I'm neither a singer nor a museum curator. I just stuff the ukes into available spaces in my bedroom. I might have to buy a smaller bed.

    Get a bunk bed, Jerry, then you'll have a bit more space for some more......

    At first, I didn't take it seriously because of the low price. Then someone here kindly pointed out that the same thing is selling for $125 on eBay. My friend bought one, and I did, too.

    How bad can it be, right? I'll let you know when it arrives.

    I'm not going to try to add a link to eBay. I tried that through an edit yesterday, and I couldn't post for hours. Look for a Vangoa banjo uke on eBay.
    Haha, I know how it is. I wanna buy everything I am gonna need a loan. I actually got one from https://maybeloan.com/calculators/loan-payments-calculator some time ago because I wanted to get a cool new ukulele asap. Haha, that's stupid, but I am really a psycho when it goes to new gear
