I find it rather sad that people feel as they should lie to their spouse about what things cost. We wonder why divorce is so common.

If you have a hobby, and your spouse is ok with your hobby, the all should be well with what you spend, as long as your family isnt starving.

I thought it was funny. With the deals I am able to pull off sometimes my wife is amazed at how much we did not spend. LOL

This is the reason I sell the stuff I make. I have a self funding hobby. No complaints at home.

My greatest fear is that I might wind up with a shop like that, full of tools and no woodworking being
done. Something like a cowboy who is all hat and no cattle. The only time I can remember discussing
price of tools was when she bought me an $80 vise and when I was bragging about my $100 Delta
cabinet saw that I spent about 6 weeks rehabbing. I like your sense of humor Uncle, and your
avatar should let anyone know that they can take you seriously at their own risk. Thank you for
sharing.

I was recently informed by a mate, going overseas with his wife, that I was in his will if they both die while away. He is a very good boutique bass luthier and is leaving me all his tools. I asked if he could throw in a bass and his amp as well. Done. I’ve reciprocated.

I once worked in a hobby shop selling Radio controlled airplanes and related equipment. Occasionally a buyer would have me make two separate purchases instead of one so they could show their spouse just the receipt for the smaller amount spent with us. The original post is funny.
