Throughout grade five everybody was required to take ukelele lessons, it was much like learning the recorder in grade three. Most of the grade five students hated it but some of us found our calling in that music class. The next year Mr. Regier started up a ukelele choir and he asked the most enthusiastic players if they wanted to join. I was incredibly happy that year, participating in something so out of the norm of school clubs and classes. We practiced a lot and dedicatedly learned a huge number of songs like "The Rainbow Connection" and "Country Roads" and even the hilarious song "I Love Onions" which I already immortalized in my journal earlier this year here.

Anyway, I came across The Flea. It's a small, bulbous shaped instrument and it's slightly shorter than my original was. I love that it comes in a huge array of colors and even designs on the front. Who wouldn't love a designer Uke? I'll certainly be adding this gorgeous instrument to my Christmas list this year. It's a little expensive but then getting back a piece of your youth doesn't happen often. I still remember how to play so just a tiny bit of practice and a little time to build back those important calluses on the fingers (just in the right place, lol) and I'll be good to go. I can't wait! Here's my Flea, Christmas 2015 here I come. :o)
