I wanted to create this blog as a place where I can store and retrieve information for future reference. I chose the name Humble Uker Ramblings because I have started out strumming my father's 1950's painted Harmony ukulele. I think that the greatest appeal of the ukulele as "the people's instrument" is it's humble simplicity. My contact email is HumbleUker@gmail.com. I have also been working on a blog for the Baritone Ukulele called Humble Baritonics.
My wife, Wendy, and I are at a Country Folk Art Show in Pleasanton this weekend (20NOV09 thru 22NOV09). She makes Ceramic art all year long and especially likes Halloween and Christmas decorations. She has many items that have lighting inside that give a warm glow and decorate a home with a festive spirit. I am the salesman, accountant and assistant.
Wendy has been experimenting with all sorts of glazes on her Yard Art selection. Recently, she's done several sparkley dragonflies, green man masks, moons & mushrooms.
Here's two small winter scenes.
Check out that glazed frog!
Christmas -- Santa, Penguins, Snowmen, Pumpkins and Gourds .
So what's this got to do with music or ukuleles. Nothin', but I came across another blogger, named Ian, working at a booth across from Wendy's. He saw me drumming on the table. He has a blog called someting like "The World's Greatest Drummer". So it was interesting for TheWorldsGreatestDrummer the HumbleUker to meet. Ah, music -- it brings us together in so many ways.
