Midnight Ukulele Disco was my internet introduction to the ukulele. It was sometime later that I came across traditional ukulele playing and the new virtuosos. I'm still a big fan of Patsy Monteleone. I love the idea of secret ukulele players coming out of the woodwork and converging on a club in New York. I'm a big fan of crazy amateurism in general. I'm a little troubled by the number of guitar virtuosos who've taken up the uke. They have an intimidating effect on those of us, like me, who might otherwise be more willing to make fools of ourselves having fun with the instrument of innocent merriment.
Damned Eric Clapton wannabes!

Hey Jon.

A thousand thanks. Stirring stuff in a laid back apocalyptic fashion.

Now. If they had attempted "Moulty", that really would have been dazzling.

Apologies back for not getting to this sooner, and - more importantly - for just catching up today with your retirement announcement. The time stamp on this post broadly coincides with my anonymous stalker getting back in touch after a three month sabbatical.

It threw me for most of the latter part of last week right on into the weekend. Swallowed up more of my attention than I'd care to admit.

Anyway. You are finally a free man. Whatever that might entail.

Have a ball, Jon, and if yo do intend to travel farther afield you have my address and details. Take it easy for a change.

RossK:

Thanks, man.

Somebody once told me (years ago when I was still a looker) that no one my age could look so good, I must be crazy.... so true.

Lately, according to the new wonder drugs of a new war, there is something I can take.... so I have been.... I'm fairly sure I'm still crazy cause you and ib are my favorites.

I am a little miffed... I missed out on a crappy comment and ib is getting f'ed with again.

I really am trying to speed up some sort of recovery here. I just don't think blogging is a good idea for me when "I'm not myself", or am I.
