I am happy to promise to do a Uke blues fingerpicking number...  8)

Just look what you started, Blueshome! Maybe we can make next year more interesting by banning all guitars and only allowing ukuleles. As a concession, resophonic ukuleles will be allowed. I know Scratchy has one and all you others can rush out and buy one - one of those cheap Mahalos if necessary. I see Richard with a bright pink one and Blueshome with a delicate shade of baby blue...  :D

Thank you Slim, but no thanks! It's PP's job to lead the midget guitars.

As far as such a thing coming into Blueshome, whilst there are still guitars out there...........

On a more serious note, it is nice to have a variety of instruments along - we've had mandolin, harmonica, uke, kazoo (banned!), b%%%jo (banned). A double bass would be nice or a good pianist.

I hear PP is preparing a uke workshop for us  :)   so I'm just off to get a pink plastic one, a better tone I believe.

Settled into new home, got BT line connected and booked hotel. Looking forward to seeing everyone again in Milford, if not before.

Looking forward to seeing you again Graham. I hope your recent health issues have been dealt with.

While I'm thinking about it and before both Richard and I forget about it.... like we did last year...  :D

The UK Amazon search boxes have actually produced 2 UK Amazon Gift certificates in the amount of about 25 or 26 lbs each!  Richard has access to the UK Amazon account (if he can remember his login) and these gift certificates.  We want EuroWeenie to use these certificates to support EuroWeenie, a small token for keeping Euroweenie going for year 4!  (Maybe you can buy a few CDs, books, door prizes... or whatever?)  A small way to say Cudos to you guys!

Reminds me - I hid the brick for re-use next year and can't remember where I hid it!

Between now and next April I'll be learning the art of hypnosis, thus allowing me to hypnotise you and convince you that you cannot remember where the dreaded brick lies. (Look into my eyes ....)

- do you mean the mobile bar?

As for them there prizes  I will see what I can find. And, if my failing memory is correct is this not our sixth year and not fourth - two in Guernsey, one at the very unfiendly Crown and this will be our third at the Lawns?

Richard, your memory serves you well (despite your advancing years  :D :D :D - there I got in before Blueshome...).

I have a GPS location on the brick. It can be recycled for use as a banjo mute should the need arise.

Richard and I are devising a fiendish programme to keep you all occupied, as usual this will involve substantial  drinking opportunities. We will also be including a new feature (to be revealed on the day) to increase PP's fear factor.

There are still 2 or 3 places left for the event, so, come on Euroweenies, commit!

Would it double as uke mute? I have a premonition that ukes are going to be about.
