Here's what I'm thinking:
- she tries out ukuleles in Austin at Fiddler's Green (and maybe we should do the Austin Guitar Center, too)
- if that doesn't work, we order in the more promising options from Guitar Center one at a time and she tries them out
- if that doesn't work, we go to Austin again in a few months and try again (the stock should have shifted a little by then)
I've also occasionally seen some good leads in the big city Craigslists.
So, that should keep us busy for a while.
We still have $2400 left from C's settlement (we've only spent about $100 of it). With $700 for therapeutic riding in the fall and then $700 for therapeutic riding in the spring, that leaves $1000, which is a nice chunk of money for a ukulele.
Of course, it may be that C actually prefers the sound of something less expensive. We shall see...
She'll also need a new concert-sized case. I think it ought to be a hard case for the price ranges I've been mentioning.
