Mr. Right?

Tuesday night, weary from a long day of teaching, I trudged into my bedroom, looking forward to nothing more than changing into my pajamas and curling up with a good book and a glass of wine. Instead, I found a strange man in my bed.


I threw back the covers to get a better look.


Yep, you guessed it. Meet Mr. Mandolin Man!


Like most of my previous boyfriends, he is beginning to show his age. He is one string short of a set and has a screw loose here and there. But I will do what I can to help him be the best he can be.


I adore him already. Thanks to my sons, Casey and Nathan, for bringing him into my life!

Thanks, Deb! (taking a bow) :-)

Julee J. Adams said...

That is so cool! As I always say, damnit, we need another expensive, time-consuming hobby to fall in love with! Enjoy!

Carol Burnside aka Annie Rayburn said...

The perfect love story!

Hey, you needed a hobby to occupy your time, something to master so you don't get bored with all the spare minutes you have. LOL

Sandy Elzie said...

Ah, Pam, you had me going there for a few minutes. LOL He's a cutie!!! and thank goodness, he doesn't eat much or leave wet towels on the bathroom floor. (grin)

Julee, I am a sucker when it comes to musical instruments in general. But learning to play the mandolin is on my bucket list. I think it's cool that my kids are supporting me in this. They get little enough time with me as it is! With my background, I usually pick things up pretty quickly. I am going to have my first lesson with Nathan's guitar teacher tonight. Wish me luck!

Pam Asberry said...

You are right on all counts, Carol! LOL!

Pam Asberry said...

You are right, Sandy; he is the perfect boyfriend. Glad I was able to make you smile!

I think this Mr. Right is definitely Mr. Wrong.:)

Pam Asberry said...

Aw, thanks, Denise. They sure are creative; I never know what they'll come up with next!

Pam Asberry said...

Thanks, Lindy. I'll have to introduce you the next time you come to my house! Just don't try to steal him away from me! ;-)

Pam Asberry said...

Anonymous, I think you're just jealous...

Tami Brothers said...

LOVE IT!!! Your kids are awesome.

You had me, too. Of course, I was on a business trip with no way to see what the heck you meant... But it was a nice surprise to pop over here and read about your new love.

I hope you come to know him well.

Hi Pam, I have the same mandolin as you. I'm trying to lean more about it but mine is missing the manufacturer's label inside the body, behind the top f-hole. I'd appreciate to find out what yours says.

Pam Asberry said...

Ty, we have Oscar Schmidt model OM-10's. That sticker also contains a serial number. Thank you for stopping by my blog!
