So, just finished up with another Wintergrass. My oldest child showed up to help tending bar in the green rooms, and otherwise helping out with the liquor distribution. She also decided she wanted to play mandolin, so she went and bought a student model. Nice little mando. She showed up in my office with it, very proud. She had nothing else, though, and no idea she even needed it.
Off we go shopping. Case, strings, picks, tuner... I'm $100 into the thing and I don't even play it!
Anyway, she now knows all three chords. It's pretty amazing all the lessons a pretty girl can get just walking the halls.
Someday we'll win this thing...
