When I met my wife she had never been on a sailboat. Over the years she had learned to handle the boat and has earned her Master's License. She truly enjoys the boat.
A few years ago, In the spring, we were in our local CVS drug store. She was in one aisle and I was in another. I hear a Lady greet my wife. A little small talk was exchanged and I hear the lady ask my wife with a tone "Does that husband of your's still have that boat of his." My wife answers "Yes, WE still have the boat." Then the lady says "That must cost allot of money that could be better used elsewhere." Now my nose was out of joint.
I hear my wife say with a very direct tone "You know, My husband does not run around. He does not gamble. He treats the kids very well and I don't give a damn what he spends on the boat. Good day, Marge!"
Yep, thats my wife, you go girl!
