RIP Neil Armstrong

A sad time.

I have posted this picture before (in fact in the very first set of Famous Players I did many moons ago) and I still find it inspirational. It was taken by journalist Don Blair and shows Neil Armstrong in quarantine after his trip to the moon. He had asked for a ukulele to be in there to help him pass the time.

I'm not going to make any crass connections, but this is a ukulele blog and I love this picture. It therefore suits as a way for me to pass what will be a very small tribute amongst the masses of tributes that are now being made around the world.

The man was a legend, a hero, a pioneer, an inspiration, highly intelligent, disciplined, brave as a lion.

RIP Neil Armstrong.

If you enjoy this blog, donations are welcomed to allow me to invest more time in bringing you ukulele articles. Aside from the Google ads, I don't get paid to write this blog. Call it a labour of love! And, no, I don't get to keep the ukuleles that are loaned to to review...
