    Got say I got lucky my wife dose not complain about my car talk or gun talk that much except for once when I forgot she was laying down with a migraine and started my race car. I felt the look of death before I saw her. I am really spending a lot of time in the shop now that I started reloading ammo. She tells me it gives her time to read without me bothering her.

    My wife has always wanted a Harley when I first met her here plan was to but a Harley when she paid off her jeep. Instead by then we had gotten engaged and were house hunting. The subject still comes up when we pass one one the road. I have always wanted a Harley too just never have been able to afford one.

    This is how it goes for my wife:

    "Honey, it is the thing that sits on top of the motor"... "ya know, it sticks out of the hood & you see it on top".... you can't miss it....

    SCREW IT. "Just get me the Summit Gift Card"... I will but it myself for Christmas.

    Ha Ha. Don't even try to explain it to her. It's not that they can't understand. It's they DON'T WANT TO UNDERSTAND what you're telling them!
    Just grin and bare it and watch TV with her for a little while and tell her how much you enjoy it!!! lol
    I'm not actually smart enough to follow through with it (either)
    :lol:
