  • Well I got caught.

    well I got caught buying a new knife from Rick( guess I should have told my wife or ask her first)boy did she get mad. lots of yelling going on, it was not good. then my wife said I would not see her for a few days. she was right, I did not see her for two days. then on the third day the swelling went down and when I opened my eyes I could barley see her . Rick it will be a while before I buy another knife. lol

    Just old Jim

      But isn't a few days of abuse, swelling, and healing well worth a good carving knife?? It's all about getting a return on your investment! Sometimes we have to make sacrifices!!


      Hope you bumps and bruses heal!

        Yea, but you might not like the kind of return you get on your investment , like a left jab followed by a right hook.Smile

        Cheers.

          That's why I usually call my wife to tell her I spent money on carving stuff. At least she's had time to cool down a bit - then I usually only get the silent treatment. I'd actually rather be beat.

          Of course I am just kidding. I have learned how to have my wife appreciate me buying new tools.....She carves now! All I have to do is either buy her something or give her one of my older tools.

            I talk right back to my wife. The other day she said Hugh, come out from under the bed. I spoke right up and said no mam, I'm staying right here. Your gotta be firm.

              When I buy a new tool, I just remind my husband that he's lucky I'm not an "expensive woman" (I HATE to shop). Plus there's his four fly rods with four fly reels, three sets of waders, and a drift boat (which I'm expressly forbidden to approach within 25 feet. OK, OK, with good reason...but still...).

              I get a lot of equity out of that. It'll be a while before we're "even"...hehehe.

                  Well, I could just open the closet and stare at the shoes and clothes, etc (not to mention the jewerly)........of course that WOULD put a lump on my head 'bout as quick as Jim got his.

                      I'd like to hear the story behind why Lori is not allowed within 25 feet of the boat. It sounds like a good one to me.

                          Lori, 4 fly rods are almost basic requirements and if you have them then you have to have waders and a drift boat :-) And 25 feet away seems about right if you have one of your carving knives in hand.. I'm still a rod short and the boat got sold in the last move. :.-(

                            Jim,
                            I was quite dismayed to learn of your situation.

                            I have never had a problem with my wife, we settled the issue of who was boss early in our marriage.

                            It has worked out very well; she even helps me with the dishes on occasion.

                              I'm proud to say that the wife and I have never had a problem with decision making in our house! When we got married she said "honey, your the man of the house and you need to make all of the major decisions, and I'll take care of all of those little decisions". This has worked great! ......Only thing that bothers me is that in 28 years we have never had a "major decision" to be made!
