I'm seroius when i say this. How she thinks and relates is much the same as a young girl. She can weld two pieces of pipe together and when painted, you can not tell where the joint is. But has no interest in doing it for a living. Would rather plant flowers in her garden and sun bath naked.

Which bring up another problem on the job. Will not wear anything more then a skimply two piece swim suit to the job. Very hard to stay focoused.
THIS POST IS WORTHLESS WITHOUT PICS!!!!

I dont feel bad for you, bro. It sounds like a nice problem to have.

My wife is very girly, no construction or trade interest at all. She likes to read, and try to give me a heart attack with baked goods home cooked meals.

Unfortunatley, she will not ever be sun bathing naked. It took me two months of dating her before she would let me kiss her. She was straight out of 1915, hands off till we were married.

Hope (pray) i am as lucky with my daughter

Which is crazy, because all her friends were skanks Dont ask me how I know Going to high school together is not always a good thing

Sounds like your wife is awesome, Jaw. There should be more people like her out there. You're a lucky man.

I will get some pic posted. I will set up a time with a cool password so we all can look at it before Tin shuts it down.

She is nice to look at and take out, but if I was to get married again, I want a wife like yours. A girl like that is in it for the long haul.

Our tool salesman, brought out the new Makita girl posters. She drooled as much as I did. Now this week , she is going to try to get a chance to be Miss Makita. Got a lead to the company that does the try outs. We will see.
