Merry/Happy Christmas

Hi there… Hope you have, all things considered, a good holiday season. Not here to argue about holidays, the economy, etc, just to wish you all the best that the Season can offer, by bringing out the best in people…

We have tried to do more holiday like things, to offset the heaviness of the pandemic, strife in politics, and all the dark of this year… Be baked cookies, like we haven’t in 20 years.

Homemade Cookies!

We have played more music, to lighten the season.

We have tried to be more kind, to all around us….

… And so, it begins…

Morning, kids… I’m realizing, again, that, from this point, Labor Day in the USA, that, we are on a downhill slide, so to speak, until January 5th, or so. Summer is winding down, and modding into cooler, darker weather. We’re ramping up for holidays, events, changes, and so many speeding days. We’re getting ready for autumn- a lovely time of year in the midwest, though, I prefer summer- then, Halloween. A BIG holiday for my family. Launch from that into the Thanksgiving season, again, here in the U.S. And then, Yule, Christmas, Solstice, and all the other holidays… The glide into New Years, and then… Quiet and cold…

So, hold onto your whatever, and, here we go!!!

Ky Ukefest

Last weekend, we went on a three day adventure, to Lexington Kentucky, for the KY Uke fest, with our friends, Mike and Ann… Fun road trip.

At the Puccini’s, in Lexington…

Saturday morning, we had classes, met friends, made new friends, and all in all, had a great time!!

Got to hang w/ Pete McCarty, Mim, and Marc Gallagher … Sort of a ‘meet and greet’ for GNUF

Saturday evening, after the concert, there was an open mic at Goodfellas pizza… We got to do a couple tunes. Mike made us sound great, and Pete documented it….

Our take on Claire Lynch’s   ‘Further in the Hole…

 

Good times….
