Andy gets a Uke
September 11, 2012
Boat building has taken me down some strange paths. I got interested
in Skin-on-Frame boats, and found Dave Gentry, of Gentry
Custom Boats. He has a friend, Paul H. Paul and I email back
and forth a bit, trading ideas and experiences, and sign on as Facebook
friends. Through FB, I find out Paul likes to make ukuleles from
cigar boxes. I said "Man, that sounds neat - how does one get
one of those?" Then one day . . .
The dogs are going bonkers, so I look outside. Man, that's a lot
Neat sticker - Christmas is right around the corner.
Oh, my! Oh, man oh man oh man! That's the coolest thing I have
It's an honest-to-Jebus cigar box!
Nautical themed, too! A lighthouse on the hat.
A ship's wheel and a ship on the box.
Oh man oh man oh man, That really is the coolest thing ever. Time
for me to learn some music skills.
Darling thought it was a pretty good gift, too, she really got
into the the wrapping.. Yes, that's my shirt there on the left -
last seen in the laundry basket. And also yes, that is a plushy
of Bo, President Obama's dog.
Hee hee hee! I am gonna abuse my friends with bad renditions of
sea shanties on the ukulele.
