Brian and I have a grand tradition of playing lots of Uke and then making a video to share on You Tube.
On Sunday the 14th I will be teaching and performing at the Ludington Arts Center. Afternoon Uke workshop and  Evening concert.
Monday morning I'll rise early and board  The S.S. Badger (Ferry) which will shuttle me across the Great Lake Michigan and back to WI.
I always enjoy the ride and like the time to read and reflect on my travels. 
Ah! Life on the road or should I say, water!
