So, even though it was bitterly cold today, we went to ukulele night. I had already RSVP’d that we’d be there, and it was just cold – not snowing or anything. The interstate was as clear and dry as could be, but getting into Omaha I slid a little bit at a stop light. We knew to be careful leaving.
The evening was great. There were seven of us, and we ate delicious food and played Christmas songs for a couple of hours. I say ‘played’ because my voice was shot. (The other girl, Beth G., also had a cold.) Lloyd was very happy because we played two Elvis songs – Blue Christmas and Mele Kalikimaka. He really hammed it up!
Finally it was time to go. We loaded up the truck, started it up, started it up….. I said “STARTED IT UP”. What???? No start.
The weather was just too cold, and our battery is just too old. God bless our ukulele friends who spent many chilly minutes trying to jump the engine (which didn’t work) and eventually push-started us! It just goes to show – uke people are the nicest people you’ll ever meet!
