Now she wants me to get rid of them all if possible, as I don't get out enough to sail them since my spinal condition worsened. But my normal reply to the question of how many models one bloke should have is... How ever many he has at the moment... plus one 😎
Funny, I was in a supermarket with the wife last night & this woman was having a right go at her husband saying he already had enough "toys" !!!
I just had to go up to her & say "sorry love, a man just can't have enough toys"
Even she had to laugh as everyone else was 👍
1 working (but needs a plaster) 2 not working (future projects) 1 on it's way to me (will be working within a week) and i'm looking for another - i've just gone completely hatstand since I bought my first boat several weeks ago.....I downsized to a bungalow now I may need to move again to a storage container!! :-)
