The “squeeze box” is always welcomed in "old timey” circles.

Funny how life makes a full circle!! When I was a teen and early 20's I had a "white soul" band with all the dance steps and leisure suits. Dad bought me a Martin D-35 guitar, hoping I would go country!!! Put it in the closet for 35 years. One day I happened on a bluegrass festival and was blown away by some of the talent!!! Pulled the Martin out and have been playing in jam sessions when I can find one. I have even bought a dobro and am having a ball playing that!!! Music is a tonic for the soul

I bring my ukuleles. My two go-to ukes for camping are an Outdoor Ukulele tenor made of composite polycarbonate and a Martin OXK soprano make of high pressure laminate. Both are pretty worry-free.

I like to play old movie songs - Smile, As Time Goes By, Somewhere Over the Rainbow. 1970's folk rock - Joni Mitchell, Carpenters, Led Zeppelin. Current favorites are Celtic hornpipes and fugues arranged for ukulele.

No pics. Mine are in the cases ready to be loaded for a two week trip from here in Okeechobee, Florida to Fredericksburg, Virginia starting tomorrow. My Mom is having a 90th birthday party and it always required that I do a few songs for her. Keep playing and making wonderful music!!!!!!

I'm sure some of you folks play guitar or sing around a campfire and I thought I could share my favorite songs and perhaps some of you have your favorite ones too. Maybe that way we can have more songs to our list.

So, here is a list of five songs I love to play:

1- Margaritaville (Jimmy Buffett)
2- Brown eyed girl (Van Morrison)
3- The sound of silence (Simon & Garfunkel)
4- California dreamin' (Mamas & Papas)
5- A kind of hush (Herman's Hermits)

Dre
Oh my goodness. These are all new songs to us. We're still singing "Found a Peanut" and "Dinah won't you Blow your Horn". We're still listening to Glen Miller and the Mills Brothers. Where has time gone?
