Just incase you missed the post, I ran a little contest to have people like Ukeeku.com
on face book. HERE is the link to the contest post.

I am very thankful for all of you that wrote such awesome poems. I now have 200+ people who like me and 160 (154 were entered) poems that we all can read when we need a pick-me-up.

And The Winners Are…….

Alex Holmes of Carbondale IL won the Laniakai Reso Banjo Uke
Fred McNaughton of Mount Joy PA won the Tall Grass Uke with the side sound hole
Chris DeGirolamo of Lawrenceville GA won the other Tall grass uke
Robert Gonzales of Phoenix AZ won an Ukeeku.com Shirt
Jim Clark of Santa Barbra CA Also won an Ukeeku.com shirt

Some of My Favorite Poems

By Matt Strawn
I’m a Ukulele Idol
Hoping for some Grammy awards
The only problem is
I only know three chords

By Narciso Lobo
There once was a dude named Tim Szerlong
Whose uke was as big as a furlong
Whenever he’d play
He’d explain it this way
It was a custom soprano for King Kong

By Narelle Gilmore
There once was a girl from Nantucket,
Who carried her uke in a bucket,
She knew her mate Rambo,
Would rather hear banjo
And when asked how she’d play she said “Pluck it”
