She bought me a 'shopvac' for Valentines Day about 15 years ago..... I will never let her forget it.

Get out of jail free card?

My three wives never gave those out. Funny how they never seen a problem with buying me tools and shop vacs.
Let see what are all the gifts I've recieved that involved work on my part?
1 shop vac that I remember
Too many car vacs to remember
A smoker so I could cook the Thanksgivving and Christmas turkeys
At leaset two grills so I could cook dinner
Powered Screw Drivers
Powered Drills
A band saw
A drill press
Powered sanders
A weed wacker with atachments
Most of these came with a remark of how I could now make those little Christmas Reindeer or other projects I had said I didn't have the tools to make.

I'm reminded of the famous Harry Truman flub:

Dear Bess (his wife),

I hope you like the dress I bought you for your birthday. We can get you a larger size if this one doesn't fit....



This isn't an exact quote, but you get the gist of it.

I never had any of those "Pitfalls" that you guys had. Well Cause I never had the pit
I am single.

I remember a TV commercial where the little girl asked mommy the question. " Did daddy carry you accross the threshold?"

Then with big eyes she said "He did"!!!!!

Mommy Mia was a great movie. I knew all the ding dang words to every ding dang song in the whole ding dang movie and I sang along. My sister kicked me

That vid stood my hackles about as straight up as they'll go, anymore.


A year or so after we were married, I bought my wife a complete set of copper-bottomed Revere Ware cooking pots, fry pans, the works. Even the big 'Missionary Pot'. (Her name for it). After cooking on garage-sale and flea-market stuff, she was seriously delighted. About 35 years have passed and we still have 'em all.
Bottoms are blacker than sin.

Thing was, her best gal-pal gave me BS about it. "Just something else to work with!" Or somesuch.


Wife set gal-pal straight. Women can be vile when they elect to be.


According to the many single guys I know who're in their late 20's, all are fed up with the premise of that vid. That's why they're single. Perhaps the young ladies might pick up on the hint, someday.


Perhaps I am deluded.

Focus on the Family has been playing a radio spot along the same lines. Quite a laugh.

Focus on the Family? Besides my two sisters I have all the Family I need right here on MLS.
