Sounds like some of our anniversary "presents". Just don't do something
stupid like I did on our first married Christmas . . . She was 5mo. preggy
and I got her an enamel roaster and a cast iron frying pan. I think she
cried for an hour, and no, I didn't wear the frying pan, but it was close.
You've got a good start, but ya git bragging rights when you survive
everything that happens and get closer to the 50 mark(45th coming up this

A lot of women tend to get more practical when you're buying them
birthday presents and such with 'our' money.
That's one of the nice things about having a hobby like jewelry
making. You can offer her pretties that she'll like that had only a
few bucks in materials cost. Plus you get the fun of making them. It's
a win all the way around.
Marriage is like having fine hand tools -- say a set of handmade
Japanese chisels or a Lie Nielsen plane -- you've got to be willing to
work at maintaining them, but damn! it's worth the trouble.
(And just to add some woodworking content: What sorts of really
romantic gifts can woodworkers make for Significant Others?)
"Sometimes history doesn't repeat itself. It just yells
'can't you remember anything I've told you?' and lets
fly with a club.
-- John W. Cambell Jr.
We've been married going on 18 years now, 2nd time around for both
of us, her first lasted 2 years, my first lasted 15. I'm a
nurse, I seen naked people all day long and most of my friends are
women. She doesn't worry about my behavior when i really could do
something stupid, catching me checking out the wood on a wanker
site wouldn't worry her much.
