Time at the bench
Posted by Dodgy on Tuesday, August 23, 2022 1:24 AM

So, I really shouldn't complain. My wife has encouraged me to spend lots of time at the bench lately. The only trouble is that it was at her bench in the pantry, doing some construction on one to one scale shelves............

Cheers

Dodgy.

Hey Dodgy!

       Your Missus cooks a lot does she? Looks like that's her hobby. A lot of women like to cook. If yours does then you have done good!

Well Lurch, you know I'd love to, but I'm a little busy hiding from my wife right now in case she starts looking at the garden cos it's almost spring here.

Ah TB, she's an amazing cook and that's only half the pantry. In fact she is an awesome woman all round and I am one very lucky man.

Sorry TJ, didn't mean to cause any domestic dramas. If she spots the photo just tell her that Jill changed her mind and I had to take it all down again. Big Smile

Well  Dodgy you can always hide over here. Its getting almost fall here and time to remove the garden. But my wife does all that herself. I suppose we all have our things to get done.                                                Hey TB . I am on my third marrage. The first two were nightmares and now I have the worlds best wife and she picked me I wasnt even looking for anything. Shes the best. We have been together for 12 yeats , married for 8 and we still havent had an arguement yet.

Happy wife happy life.

My wife has wanted a summer room for some time now and it's also ideal for putting family and friends up for the night as it is well insulated. Adam who is sixteen now started the foundation with me last autumn and the build this spring, he stuck with it throughout; haven't had the same result with modelling. It was basically swopping the small bench for the larger one with the instruction been pretty much the same ideal for my first real 1:1 build. Result a very pleased and delighted wife.

Believe me Lurch, if I had the money I'd be there tomorrow! Always wanted to go to the States. So many historical locations and museums and now thanks to FSM, so many new friends I would like to meet.

You are welcome to come over anytime Dodgy. Not many museums close by but there are a few in the twin cities about a 2 hour drive away.

I mainly use vegimite on toast or sangers. (Sandwiches). Same with peanut butter. Never thought of trying it with apple. Must have a crack at that.
