Most. Amazing. Video. EVER.

As promised, I managed to sneak up on my husband a couple of times while he was playing his new mandolin.

He's starting to catch on to my candid camera tricks.

It took a few tries of ambushing him in the farm office...

Attempt #1:

Attempt #2:

And here I finally succeeded.

This is J learning to play Cooperhead Road on his first mandolin.

Please do me (and you) a favor and watch until the very end.

You will want to see the mild meltdown he has when he messes up.

It's pretty awesome.

In a 4-year-old kind of way.

As a matter of fact, just go ahead and click the fullscreen button at the bottom right corner of the video player.

That went on for another 5-10 seconds but I knew better than to keep filming.

See you later.

It's been fun.

But it's officially time for me to go into hiding for about five years.

Because I don't want to be around when he sees this.

Peace OUT.

While You Were Sleeping

Turn up your volume.

My husband is known for rocking the air guitar from time to time in the truck.

He strums his console.

Like a dork.

When the right song comes on, he loses himself in the music.

This is what goes on when J thinks I'm sleeping while he's driving, and Patty Loveless' He Hurt Me Bad (In A Real Good Way) comes on the radio:

What you can't see if that he's also fingering the chords with his left hand up by the steering wheel.

He just got a mandolin for his birthday the other day.

I'm working on getting some covert video of him rocking out to Steve Earle's Copperhead Road.

Stay tuned.
