Speaking of Galleries….

August 4, 2007

Journal, Lauren

We spoke of having a bacon mat gallery, but here is one that I’m even prouder of. Lloyd’s Cousin Sam borrowed my red Fluke when his family went out west on vacation. My instructions were that he should take pictures of it when he took it somewhere interesting. He did not disappoint! Behold:

camel ukulele


Beautiful view.... and Sam

The Magic Fluke

Holy giant, ukin' wizards, magic....eh, I got nothin'

Now, for an offer that I will only extend to Sam. I know how you crave a Fluke of your own. (Sam has a case of UAS – Ukulele Acquisition Syndrome.) Since I am a silly person and support your illness, I will set aside one dollar every day that you comment on this site, Sam. Not one dollar per comment, one dollar a day. You think I’m kidding? I am not. In a mere seven months you could have a Fluke. (Note: This offer only good for one Cousin Sam, True Blue Uke Disciple. When the rest of you have shown your mad song memorization skills and chord knowledge, I’ll think about it.)

    ChaChing(?) $1 down; $5299 to go. You did say that this deal applied to replacement windows, right? Wow, little(not) ol’me the post after some kind of bacon heart attack. I would have prefered the post to be titled “Exhobitionist B”


    • Lauren Said on:

      Woo-hoo! There’s a dollar in the fund! No, no windows. Unless you can play ‘Mary did you know’ on a window. I’d like to see that.


  2. Brad Said on:

    I think it would be cool if that first picture was the first thing that came up when you did a Google search on “camel ukulele”.


    • Lloyd Said on:

      We’d probably need to put several references to “camel ukulele” somewhere on the page for that to happen.

      Speaking of searching, guess what the second page that comes up when you search for Brad Royuk is?


      • Beth Said on:

        You say we have to mention “camel ukulele” a number of times in order to have that happen? Or would camel ukulele suffice? Hmmm…


      • Brad Said on:

        Camel ukulele or ukulele camel… does that matter? Can I imagine a ukulele with a camel on it? Yes. Can I imagine a camel that plays a ukulele? No. Maybe a camel that carries ukuleles. Hmmm…

    Cousin Sam … you’re the man!!!

    But how pitiful is that your uke, eh Fluke (I don’t know ukulele lingo) has traveled & seen more states than me!! Whoever travels next, must take me for a similar post … please?


    • Cousin Sam Said on:

      Well Peggy, I would suggest trying Brad Royuk a renowned world travellererer. By the way, looking at the pictures I am wearing the same shirt. I’m sure we didn’t bring a washing machine with us… ($2)

    I finally have to break the silence. (For those of you who know me, it has taken a surprisingly long time.) As Sam’s devoted wife I have a couple camel ukulele comments. 1)That is not me pictured on the ukulele camel. 2)We did take a washing machine -- me; the pictures were taken on the same camel ukulele day. and 3)We also took a picture of the ukulele camel with the lion statue from a Chinese buffet. (For those of you who REALLY know Sam, this is probably the most appropriate ukeulele camel picture of them all.)
