Today ...

   was such a gorgeous day, I was happy to get out and about some and to have the opportunity to take a few photos.

     After reading a comment that was left in one of my entries this week, I sort of had my eye out for a ukulele. I didn't happen to run across one but I did see one of these, not sure what it's called but it does have 4 strings and it sounds absolutely beautiful.

      It's nothing like a ukulele, more like a violin of some type (see the bow)? I don't guess you would consider learning to play one of these, right Mort?

     I'll post more of the fun photos I took during the week, I'm to pooped to edit the images tonight.

    BTW ... Sam, yes, the tips of my fingers are most definitely in that painful and not so attractive "acquiring callouses from learning to play the guitar, stage". And ... manicure? what manicure? I now have to clip my nails very short a couple of times a week. This may be the main reason that I haven't learned to play the guitar before now ;-)

     My one day weekend is already over, back to work first thing in the morning, Have I ever mentioned that I hate one day weekends? Good week ahead all.

I'm so proud of you forgoing the manicure in lieu of artistic accomplishment, LOL!  Coy, I found two ukeleles at flea markets when I lived in florida.  Just a thought.  The instument pictured above has piqued my attention and imagination.  Thanks!

I have a ukulele. :-)  I figured it out. I stopped getting alerts around December 5th. And here I thought you just weren't updating here anymore. *sigh* I'm adding you to my Bloglines. I had to read all the way back to early December, of course. The guitar lessons sound fun!
