Default "WaHoo Finally"

WaHoo Finally got to treat myself to a late B-Day Present from me to me. Got back late last night around 2:30 AM from the wife doing her 1st of the month Wally World shopping when there's no crowds in the store. Came through the door, jumped online and ordered my Dewalt DWP611, as well as an Acrylic Base Plate and another profile bit. I'll finally be able to stop pushing my bulky plunge router around and mount it back in my router table.

Now I just have to scrounge up the extra money to get the 13 year old nephew we're raising a router for Easter. We've been slowly buying him his own tools, Skilsaw, Jigsaw, Drills, Sanders. Clamps. He's getting a growing collection and it keeps my tools available for myself.

(Update) Just called Dave and caught him while he was working on my order. Wife said I had a lil' more money left after paying bills and I was able to add a whiteside SC-50 Carving Bit and a 90 degree v-groove to my order. Boy I'm such a lucky man to have such a loving wife that doesn't mind me buying more tools when I need em'. Told her the rest of the money left over was her's to use as she sees fit. Guess she's going to be ghetting that new purse and watch she's been wanting. A lil' scared of the watch thing though. "cause now she'll tell me when it's quiting time... lol...

You need to become a salesman.........something like this:

"Honey, with these new tools, I'll be able to bring in more money than ever before. Just think 15% of all I make is YOURS!!!"

That will be the best 15% "commission" you will ever pay out! LOL

Lol Frank. That was funny. Wife wasn't laughing to much even though she giggled a lil'. She say's she's worth more than 15% and I would have to agree with her on that one. But now you got her started and now she wants a 70/30 split. I'll let you guess which part of that split she wants now? See what you done and did? I'll have to stand on the street corner and sell extra signs to make up for things. Not to mention not many corners out here in my rural neck of the woods...

Tell her that the 85/15 split was a good start. But now that she started the counter-negotiations with a 70/30 offer, you gotta counter her offer with a 90/10.....of course you are the 90. LOL

But if you end up sleeping outside in the cold, quickly deny knowing me, and suck up to her big time!!! LOL

If Mama ain't happy -- - - ain't nobody happy!!!!!

Once you make something for her - and she sees how happy you are, and being home, staying out of trouble - - she'll support you - - might even get you something additional for Father's day, or your birthday, or one of those other days.

Well done. My wife and I have an amicable agreement I don't ask about her quilting expenses and she doesn't ask about my shop expenses.
