Female and Communication are two words that should never be used together. I know from almost 52 years of experience. Yes Mam/dear/sweetheart/honey, is the correct answer to any communication brought by a female. I have been caught in that delemina a few time over the years and have never won.

My husband is also a woodworker, though not a turner. We share a VERY crowded shop. (I agree not to turn when he is varnishing!) He made me a beautiful set of kitchen cabinets a few years ago. (See them in my photo album.) His health has limited the work he can do in the shop now (spinal stenosis) but he loves to help me make blanks for the blind center. I cut them on the band saw, and he drills them on the drill press, sitting on a stool. Pepper mill blanks, pen blanks, stopper blanks, etc. Then he sits on a little roll around stool and takes the shop vac and cleans up the debris. We make a great team.

Well this past weekend was a fun stress filled weekend of family engagements that included the baptism of our baby girl, my mother, her mother, and well that's enough for anyone right? I'd left my computer open where I had just received an email from an IAP member that will remain nameless (name rhymes with Craig Shardy) where he was making a joke about my wife not being appreciative of having me rather than being stuck with a grouchy old dinosaur such as himself.

As you can imagine the keywords she saw were: Wife, Ungrateful, Unappreciative.

My son came and got me because he was worried about mommy crying in the shower. THAT one was fun.
She is luckier having you than me...but I'm not sure that makes her lucky on the grand scale.
