I hear the only thing more expensive than a wife is an exwife... and I can barely afford the first so I know I can't afford the second

Though I do recall an incra sled that magically appeared in the "shop" and wasn't noticed for a couple months... :p

Colin & Pineal,

I am SOOOOOO good, I need neither a head nor a brain. Beside what would I use them for anyway. They always just get me in trouble.

Tim,

Excellent job on the Incra sled and I do hope that you went out immediately and built something that either could not have been built without it or was built better, faster and stronger because of it.

Fred

Actually Tim, when she asks about a new tool the correct answer is "Honey, don't you remember getting me that 3 years ago?!?"

Fred,
I'm afraid to ask... where is that hat made? Never mind, BCT wouldn't make that kind of mistake.

Any questioning of said tool comes with the rejoinder, "I have had this for quite awhile. Don't you remember when we spoke about it?"

As proof that I know exactly what I am speaking about, I have two, not one but TWO ex-wives.

However, here is my latest acquisition:

This is Mrs. Mc

Apparently the young Paddawan has much more to learn in this marriage. He sat here and read your responses to me - now I know how to avoid your email tool buying plots!

If you all feel so strongly about him having more tools, I will happily link you to our paypal account so you can be the one to help pay for them.

Peter, it truly pains me to correct you , but that is not a hat, it is a cap.

A hat has a brim that goes all the way around, and a cap has a bill, visor, or nothing at all. (I use to be in the garment business )

Thanks John. I honestly did not know the difference. Now I can say I learned something today. Wasn't a waste after all.

Fred: one wonders why you bought the CAP (see John - I learned) if you have neither a head nor brain. Perhaps Michael's right, and you're just sharpening it...?

Tim. Please ask your lovely, wonderful, generous, talented and gracious wife if she wouldn't mind me linking to your PayPal account to buy my tools.
