I'm encouraged greatly by your comments folks much appreciated. 

The CBU was made by Shane Wagstaff, he took the neck off a bust baritone uke I had and put it on a cigar box I picked up in New Orleans from a cigar shop, young lady let me have my pick of some boxes she had lying around in the back ($5). 

Reason for giggling at the end of the video was that fact that I had to sing the last chorus again after really fluffing my lines and chords, (think you can tell where I edited but I was glad to be able to cut it in without too much notice)

Cant help but wonder everytime I see a comment from  our lovely Nancy.......(hasn't anyone ever interviewed you about your passion for Cat's) Would love to watch it, so intrigued. :) 
cheers and thanks again from Sammy

thanks Uncle John, thanks Dave, appreciate your comments. Had fun putting it together and had me thinking of those fabulous 'southern states' we visited last year. Seems like a life time ago.

Wonderful Sammy. I love your style and vocal strength. I love that song too.
