Ukes for troops

The Ukulele is a strange little instrument, much ridiculed and occupying a place below that of other paria strings like the banjo and the lute. However, it is also a very nice little fella that is easy to transport and is guaranteed to make a happy sound. I have bought one, now only remains to get time to learn to play it...

The little happy instrument-thing is probably why some American women has thought up an idea to send ukes to soldiers - the Ukes for troops project. Thanks to Nate for the link...
