    Oops, stepped in it. I rarely cross the one who provides that which can not be acquired anywhere else.

    Sooner she realizes that she has only one option under lock and key the better. Think outside the anywhere else box and you'll be just fine. Maybe not a good option, but an option none the less.

    NO, there ain't been no wife around here for a good number of years now. Doing and enjoying just fine this way, saws on the table/counters, working in the woods, working crab/salmon boats, owning a small commercial boat, among other things, all non-options when a wife was around, now working realities.

    Didn't know about that?

    Must have happened since the GTG at your place? Gosh time flies. Heck, don't think I ever even heard what happened with the ins scam.

    Anyway, sounds like you're doing well and enjoying life. Here's to keeping on!

    I'm so tough that no matter how bad she tells me that something's f-ed up I can say, "that's ok, I'll take care of it".
    The real trick is being able to smile all the while and not bite your tongue off at the same time. If she sees blood the rouse is over.
    The way I figure, I'm gonna have to straighten it up anyway.
    Every morning practice this in the bathroom mirror. Think of bills overdue/past due/final notice "that's ok, I'll take care of it". Cars been making a noise for the past month and now wont start "that's ok, I'll take care of it". You get the idea.

    Things happen, sometimes for the better.

    I was thinking about the GTG the other day. Thought about having another but the pigs live where the wood was, don't expect anyone one wants to cut in a well used pig pen. That was good time, I need to get down to see Farley if he has another this next summer. The Ins scam was proven at just that, as I understand it cost that person a lot of money in the end, ins lawyers are good at their jobs.

    Everyday is what we make of it and as good as we want it to be. Enjoy life every chance you can.

    I'm so tough I went down on one of Fiddy's porkers. Was like licking the shithouse door on a tuna boat.
