You know the one. You got it, because it was too good of a deal to

pass on. When you got it home, eyebrows where raised, and you quickly

saved your life by saying you got for "you Dear". If you're sharp enough, you

remember that you used that answer 3 months ago, so you use one of

the kids as the recipient.

Chances are, they've only seen it once or twice, and most likely never driven it.

 

Lets hear a bit of a story, and see what they've got.

When Terry was still with us, I never had a challenge with any of that. She egged me on to get the Ford! Now, I have no one to answer to except my self!

I dont either, and I try never mislead my wife. If I were too she would know, and then may think she has a say in what I buy We have a traditional marriage, one in which my wife doesn't work outside the home, doesn't drive without me, doesn't buy anything without approval, and supports my decisions in life, knowing how difficult those decisions are. I understand that others are different and I celebrate our differences, All my drivel aside, I get the premise and if any tractor was a "gift' for her it was the last one, the Homelite T-16, because she likes Blue.

I can get her to set on one, but I wouldn't ask/want/allow her to actaully drive it, made that mistake before in days (and woman) gone by. Its my tractor and my lawn, I dont ask her to use her ironing board, mixer, or sewing machine and she wouldn't let me if I wanted too, lol I shudder to think what she would do to the lawn/tractor or I would do to her machines, I have thought of using her mixer for paint, but my life flashed before my eyes and I broke out in a sweat.

Story goes that my grandmother was taught by my grandfather to shoot his brand new double barrel shotgun.  Supposedly they stood on the sidewalk with my grandfather behind her.  She pulled the trigger with the gun out away from her shoulder.  Caught my grandfather on the upper arm and the gun dropped down...onto the cement.  I still have the cracked stock. 

 

Supposedly that was the last time he let her shoot his guns.

 

Moral of the story.....

 

:(

 

I better go before someone sees this....

I balance my tractor time so as not to neglect my wife. Its harder now that my boy is content sitting in the shop and watching me...time flies by. Likewise, I stagger my tractor chasing trips, and will probably begin taking them along as he grows older. Make a 2 hour drive a day long adventure with a couple meals and a random stop in a small town park. Did it once and had a ball, but it will be more enjoyable when he's older. They did attend two shows wih me this summer...we had a great time at both. The first was local...to test the waters, and the second was a big deal. I took 5 tractors, 6 attachments, memorabilia, a tent, the whole she-bang. 300 miles in a day. Had a blast.

All that being said, the tide really turned last fall when my little guy was only a month old. I told her I found "Dominic's Tractor", and drove 4 hrs to get it. She LOVED it so much, she insisted I put it undrr the Christmas tree as his very first gift.

I have since brought homemy son's second tractor....and she promptly insisted he does not need two, and that this one is hers. Sorry...no way! She rides all over the neighborhood and property with him...Im thrilled to say the least.

I don't have a wife or any kids so there ALL MINE!!  :smilewink:

 

I do have this really good gal I been shackin-up with for 20 years and she has talked me into buying a lot of things that I had talked myself out of buying.  Many times, she's even got her checkbook out and bought stuff after I walked away telling myself "I don't need that".  

She's a keeper!  :thumbs:
