Other than M. Ted, does anyone posting comments here actually play uke? I haven't played one in thirty years. All I know is that it is tuned My Dog Has Fleas. That's probably politically incorrect, now.
M.Ted: how much was $250 worth back then? I rember when $100 was worth $10. When single dip ice cream cones were a nickle and shave and a haircut really was "two bits", although Iwasn't old enough to need a shave, then. My $10 mandola would cost $50 now... still a steal.
