It began with a little uke playing on the lanai
Then with the aid of some dental floss and a hunk of cardboard box I am preparing this weird seed for drying in the sun. The little clamps I normally use to keep my music from flying away in the wind came in very handy.
Then we went to dinner at the Paliolo Bar to hear Max Angel, a fine ukulele player with a fine singing voice.
We first met Max four years ago. He was only sixteen and we were present at his first gig. He began his career right here and on that night his mother and his aunt were there to support him. He was very good at sixteen but four years makes a huge difference. His playing is smooth and excellent, his now matured voice is perfectly attuned to the ukulele music he plays. We greatly enjoyed it-- and I was especially thrilled because he played a couple of numbers using my Cocobolo/Redwood uke. It is always a thrill to hear a good player play your instruments. I was honored and delighted. By the way, that pretty woman in the foreground is my wife Marya
