U…is for ukulele
I took this photo this morning for this post, we bought the ukulele in Hawaii years ago.
The ukulele was first taken to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants in the 19th century. It comes in four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. While the ukulele is generally associated with Hawaiian music, its versatility is so much more.
One of my favorite Hawaiian ukulele artists is Jake Shimabukuro, who shows the versatility of the uke and what he can do with four strings
Now, the V, you might wonder (especially Frizz who leads this alphabet group might be wondering why I’m jumping the gun with V when it’s U’s turn), V is for…Vacation. No picture, I’ll just say view your own last great vacation in your mind’s eye. I will be going on the said V next week, leaving on Monday, and will be gone for ten days or so. I’ll have a few more tidbits of info over this coming weekend in my Sunday Chronicle, before I leave; stay tuned.
I’ll have make-up homework to do here with Frizz when I get back.
