Adrian next door + Me = George Formby

Adrian (8) from next door spent a lot of time hanging round at our place today. At one stage he was playing Marcus's ukelele, but it's tone was not to his liking, so he went home and fetched his. I was washing windows while all this was going on. We have a lot of windows and some of them are pretty inaccessible. While I stood a little bit further up a ladder than is generally advised, scrubbing, Adrian peeled off either Peter Gunn or the Baby Elephant Walk, and a few other ukelele standards. It has just occurred to me that in the old days George Formby played the ukelele and cleaned "winders" - in these days of specialisation it takes the two of us to cover his skill set.
