Tonight I played a wonderful tenor uke

Tonight I played a wonderful tenor uke. The ukulele was painted by Amy Waldrop. There is a sharpie drawn handlebar moustache above the bridge. The moustache is loving homage to her lifelong friend, confidante and husband Gary Waldrop, aka Dr. Tickle

Queen City Ukulele Club, our float ride

Our informal but fun group the Queen City Ukulele Club got to ride on a float "The Birthplace of Route 66 Festival" parade. We must have played Route 66 at least 12 times. It was a rainy day so the plastic Waterman Ukes were brought out.
