    Default Present from my wife and its first spin

    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.

    Sweet!

    You said you hadn't played mandolin in awhile, but it doesn't show, you're playing really good (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!
