Don't kid yourself. She'll smell the new paint and varnish and promptly neuter you.

It's when you bring in a new one, and the collection does not seem to get larger, is when you begin to realize that she is removing them as fast as you accumulate them! Been there, done that! When you ask, 'Gee, where did that one go, I thought I had one', that you find out it's too late.

Wife was up at the Pole Barn with me yesterday and didn't say a word about the two (new last week) engines crowding the walk way. Her only comment was, you sure have a lot of "STUFF" in here, and I can't get to my "STUFF" . I told her if there is a space , I might find something to fill it .
