    Oha LΓ€tz!
    (the same as oha last / Swissgerman Version)
    My wife and I have no problems, just unanswered questions.
    Evaluation Yes or No! Simple or?
    I have employed my wife to do the small jobs, which she fulfils to my complete satisfaction. We also have a deal, because I'm going to call the Mississippi steamer "Dolores".
    Hey friends, try to get your wife involved, something will work out. . . Or you could help around the house . .
    I passed my exams in dusting, hoovering, drying, etc. with top marks!!!
    Good luck, you gentlemen hobbyists,
    Your Michel-C

    Ps: Fred, it's also β€žyes my darlingβ€œ only when she asks me:
    Would you like a coffee with something sweet?
    πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰
    if you don't ask, you won't get an answer!

    Well the one thing is in the end we always have the last word even if it is " Yes Dear"

    That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

    Mine say's For FFS not another model boat. We went to a boot fair about six years ago and I saw a model boat hull. It was a hull to a MTB and I picked it up and looked at it and asked the man on the stall how much was it and he said £6 mate. I put it back down and just said OK cheers. I didn't even attempt to get my wallet out. We walked on a bit further and then I went back again and just took a second look , nut still refrained from buying it. We got to the end of that row of stalls as we walked to the end of the next row of stall and was opposite where the model boat was she just went over and picked up the boat and she offered him a fiver for it and then gave it to me and said " Here you are if you want just have it". So she's not really all that bad, But still says the same when I buy another model boat or model Rover car.🀣

    Immediate blind obedience is the only way to go. You are always in an β€œno win” situation. Just do as your told.
    The sure way to succeed is, just try one more time

    Ah, the ladies 🚺.
    Having moved the "studio " for my wife in the summer (basically an 8x12' shed), approximately 2 metres to create a shaded area and then redesigned the inside, she's now decided that's her retreat and I have the "dry dock " in the garage πŸ˜€ so it's a win win πŸ†. To be fair though, when DVLA wouldn't let me drive my wife did run me to the lake a few times, didn't want to play but this is work in progress 😁

    Roy,
    I've told my wife MANY times ....
    "If I say I'm going to do something, I'm going to do it. There is no need to remind me every 60 days!"
    Dave B
    So far my collection resembles "The Island of Misfit Toys". I've picked up several boats that are old builds and have been neglected. I'm giving them the TLC they need, hoping to bring them back to their former glory. Once I get enough practice/ experience I intend to take on a full build.

    Hi Stephen single subject groups often form together. The ladies have a common denominator of being model boat widows. This is a talking point! All talking points are good.

    I find that the main difference between gentlemaen and ladies is that men like to sort out problems and resolve them while ladies regard them as talking points and are not bothered about solutions.

    However if you want a quiet life and your spouse points out something that needs to be done my 60+ years of marriage have taught me one major lesson:- It is quicker to drop everything you are doing and attend to the problem.

    Otherwise you will be regarded as 'typical male' useless when wanted! So by instant attention this in itself will make you a paragon compared to other husbands, which in itself will give your wife a special position.

    She will be grateful, you will get unexpected cups of tea and other thoughtful things.

    Above all do not get smug about it, nobody likes a s******s.

    Yes dear, just coming!!!!

    Roy
