I came home from work last Thursday night and my wife had a really nice surprise for me. Something I've been wanting a long long time.

So later on I got to take it for a little spin. I'm a very happy camper.

You won't get many comments on this thread since your FB links have privacy settings so only your FB Friends (I'm presuming) can see the content there. I, for example, get the standard FB - Content Unavailable message when I click your links.

Congrats on the new ???.

Sweet! :mandosmiley:

You said you hadn't played mandolin in awhile, but it doesn't show, you're playing really good :mandosmiley: (certainly better than I did when I first picked up a mandolin again after not having played anything except keyboards in umpteen years), don't worry it will all come back really quick! :mandosmiley: :)

Thanks for all the kind words everybody. And yes, she ( my wife) is most definitely a keeper. So is the mando :)
