Is there a hobby your wife will put up with????  I feel blessed.. my wife will put up with many of my hobbies.. Starting in the spring i start cutting fire wood. mostly for wood stove use but that's cause i enjoy the fire and i'm cheap so i like saving a hundy or two per month on the Nat gas bill... summer comes and i am out in the woods looking for Sheds.. Moose and deer antlers. i usually take a dog or two with me. Then fall rolls around and i'm out hunting for a month.. Even after i fill my tags i'm out stalking to see where the deer are traveling. then shortly after that christmas comes so i am home till spring. and all over we go again. I did enjoy riding a motor bike till this past summer, that might be a time gone past now not due to the wife but due to my health. I may take up more fall time for bird hunting now that bike riding is out of the picture...

No probs, but for dinner I have to stay at home :smilewink:  j/k

 

When we're travelling with the tractors or go fishing in Norway she accept it. Sometimes she visits me and then she rides her bicycle. That's not my way of locomotion...

But, when you're married a long time, you automatical share your hobbies - more or less :big_hug:

My wife loves wild game be it birds, deer, elk or moose, that kinda gives me the freedom to roam for hunting.

My wife puts up with me gardening , we do get good food and it doesn't cost too much to grow but to be honest if I worked at a  part time job for the time I spend in there we could just go to  local farm stand , guess that;s why it's a hobby lol

It's been my experience that they'll tolerate most of our junk and passions as long as it doesn't involve other women,

Note: Do Not engage the girl at the check out counter with eye contact or idle friendly chatter! :(

My wife never gripes at me - mostly because we never got married.  :smilewink:    Next month will be 19 years of "happily unwedded bliss".

She never complains about my collections of garden tractors, motorcycles, garden tractors, old cars, garden tractors,old engines, garden tractors, big tractors, or garden tractors. 

The other half has a bunch of crock jugs and she also collects shoes and purses like Imelda Marcos. 

I figure that makes us about even and I can't complain.

Actually there are two hobbies my wife and I do and have shared equally in.

#1 is the Garden and #2 is woodwrorking. The Woodworking has been put on hold since we moved 3 yrs ago and have not gotten the woodshop set back up.

My wife is pretty cool when it comes to my hobbies.  She gets out and rides with me in the milder spring and fall temps and she has always supported me in what every I have done even to the point of getting out there under a truck getting her hands greasy and dirty to start a bolt I couldn't get my fat paws into.

I gotta say happily that my wife has completely avoided anything that remotely resembled a "hobby" for me..  Having a badbadbad back she avoids uneven ground (I'm safe outside!) and I avoid being in the house as much as I can!  We do get along great at our mutual hobby of making each other laugh though.

Seems we share our hobbies too; gardening, fishing, shed hunting, guns, reading (but I can't do those blood and guts mysteries she's into !) If one of us gets interested in something new, the other just naturally takes an intrest in it as well.

My wife and I share some and not others. BC (before children) we loved to go out on a long motorcycle ride and we still enjoy camping, fishing and 4 wheeling together. She is entertained by my gardening until harvest time. I still haven't broken her from looking at the GT's as ONLY a tool. She asks me "why do you NEED three tractors..." but then when I show her how I've traded, bought, and sold enough to pay for my toys she accepts it. I appreciate her keeping me in check though since she stays home with the kids and we only have one income.

Maybe that's because she's afraid you'll leave her sitting in the middle of the street in a wheelchair with one arm in a sling!!!   :D  :D  :D   ~~  Lowell
