This is utterly charming, and I grinned all the way through.

The pacing faltered a bit in the last two paragraphs--the piece may be stronger without them, although I can see why you'd want to keep them in; they are a lovely tribute to your husband.
I can identify here. My husband can't carry a tune either. But he's a wonderful husband, father, friend and church worker. Who could ask for more?

Poor Jim! Loved your story! I can't sing either but I try in church!
Awww, I feel sorry for Jim. In my middle school years, I saw a great movie about a pianist and wanted more than anything to play the piano like her. So my folks bought a piano & I took lessons. But I was a terrible musician. It took a piano recital in which I performed miserably to induce me to give up the piano. So, thanks for sharing this. I enjoyed it. And God bless that wonderful husband of yours.
