Bigtime wife gloat!

Page 1 of 2  
I know some of you guys have great SWMBO's, but I gotta gloat a bit over mine.
Been married to my other half now for over 22 years. When the WWW store I was the Asst. Manager at closed down, she showed up when stuff was at 70% off and started buying up a bunch of stuff for me. She kept walking around the store saying, "What's this thing? Can you use this? Can you use that?" She ended up buying me about $1200 worth of really good stuff for about $275.!!
Now comes another good deal... The other night, she and I were at Foxwoods casino with 10 other relatives for dinner. After dinner, she asked if she could play the slots for a while. Well normally I kinda hate it when she does this because I end up hanging around for a few hours totally bored. Well there was a good band playing in the Atrium longe, so I told her to go ahead and I just sat down, had a beer and intended on listening to the band for the time. Well in a few short minutes, she called me on the cell phone and told me to come to where she was because she just won a jackpot! :o)
Turns out she won three grand!
Then you know what she did? She dropped 14 one hundred dollar bills into my hands from her winnings and said, "Now you can go get that planer-thing you've been wanting!"
So now tomorrow morning we're going down to the Old Saybrook tool store and picking up my new Delta 15" planer!
Whatta gal, huh?

The only thing in this world better than a good wife is a great wife. Sounds like you've got one.

Good for you, Terry. By the way the Western Tool in Hyannis has not added very much woodworking stuff. It remains very much a contractor's tool place.
I hoped you checked prices at Coastal Tool in Connecticut. They've usually been pretty good.
Take care.

Depending of the brand, also check out Tools Plus in Waterbury. <http://www.tools-plus.com

I agree with Capt'nBob that Coastal is good but I also have to agree with Barry that Tools Plus is a place to check as well. I picked up a Delta Jointer and Drill Press at Tools Plus that was about $250 and $100 respectively cheaper. Call them and don't go by their online prices there is some pricing difference in store.
The $350 savings allowed me to step up to a Mini Max band saw. No deals there however.
Terry you have the most gracious wife and you are very fortunate of both her and her good luck.
Best Regards Rich

calmly ranted:

Ask her if she wants to Sugar Mama a west-coast dude for awhile. I'd treat her right. Her place or mine (send RT ticket). I'm easy.

Damn.... I couldn't handle Massachusetts (I'm a gun owner). Beyond that, she sounds like my kind of woman. Pity....

Hi Terry, I'm going to make a suggestion and tell you to make her something special for your 23rd...She's the real jackpot!! You missed a hidden gloat here, too. You knew when to walk out! I know to most people that sounds stupid but I have a short story. One of our loggers showed up on the landing one morning and told Jim he won $38,000! He'd log by day and play slots all night whenever the job was anywhere near a casino..literally. Jim told him to take the day and go buy a new truck and Harley (12 years ago when you could actually do both). To make this story short, 2 months later we had to buy his CAT so he could pay bills. He gave it all back. Jana

I suspect that plans existed even without the windfall. They certainly do with my wife!
