A Busy Spring

This has been the busiest Spring I can remember for quite a while. Much has happened since I wrote about the Allegheny Ukulele Soiree in March.

I decided it was time for me to retire after almost 31 years in full-time ministry. At the same time my wife and I decided to sell our townhouse and buy a larger single family home with our youngest daughter, her husband and 3 grandchildren plus four dogs. To say it has been busy would be an understatement!

As I write tonight I have been retired since the end of March, we are completely out of the townhouse (which we have since sold) and we are somewhat moved in our new home. We just celebrated 42 years of marriage yesterday. Life is good.

As a retirement present to myself I purchased a Mya Moe super soprano ukulele. I have only had it a few days but I can tell you it is beautiful. I am the third owner but it is like new. I love the feel and sound and the sustain is unbelievable. I will be trying a new set of strings on it soon. A review will follow, possibly on video.

I also just received today a plastic Kala Waterman uke. I will probably do a review on it soon. too.

For now I wanted to give you an update and let you know what has gone on. The blog will be updated regularly in the future and who knows, another uke may show up.

Until next time, enjoy your ukulele and keep playing! 🙂


I retired in the Spring of 2015. My free time is spent with my family and playing my ukuleles.
