Trying out the new saddle and 2TC for the first time.

Wife: I sure hope that’s safe
Me: Yea, me too
Wife: ……
Wife: you’re suppose to say it is safe
Me: oh- oh yea, it is safe!
Wife:…..
I had similar conversation working on one sticking the other day.
Is that safe? Do you need to go that high?

This just in from the Mrs regarding hunting, “well at least you’re not playing video games all the time.”

I should start a book full of wife quotes. Post up any funny quotes your wife has made about you and your hobbies. Bonus points for comments on hunting or saddle hunting specifically.
My wife saw me climbing and hanging in a tree with my saddle and Said "I was worse than her nephew and hanging from a tree in a diaper seems so childish." Then I told her how much it costs to have comfortably from a tree and she responded with "idiot , this how you waist our money" The kicker is " our money" Its my job but "our money"

My situation

Me: I’m going out hunting, my location will be on the Life 360 app. In case anything happens.

Wife: Why would I care?

Me: well, life insurance will need a body before any payouts are made.

Wife: on her iPhone checking that her Life 360 app is locating me as she asks “where are the receipts for your life insurance?”

After all these years, she is still smitten with me.

Reading through this I feel very lucky. Wife is a former soldier as well who was Air Assault. When I first tried SRT/rappelling in the yard her first words were "looks way safer than attaching sticks.......as long as you dont wrap your rappelling rope around your neck somehow."

She even asked to try it out.

By nature, I am an "over build" kind of person. So my wife knew if I was willing to sit in a saddle I built, that the saddle was safe - as for some bone head move Ill make in a rush - that's something she knows is just as likely to happen.

My wife is somewhat of a worrier (worry-er?) like her mother, but not nearly as bad. She’s also very cautious and methodical. I tend to weigh risks then just send it. It’s cute that she worries about me. I’m constantly getting her out of her comfort zone and trying new things. I like that she will put herself out there to try new stuff with me.

Sounds like your wife is friends with my wife… and my mom because that’s how both of them are about house chores Hahaha. My wife had the audacity to ask me when I was going to mow the grass. Grass cutting is my sacred time and I will not have it poisoned by being guilt tripped into doing it! I told her she’s not allowed to talk about the grass. Just because I let it get two weeks long while I was focused on finishing my saddle build does not mean she gets to have control of that too. The grass is mine, dang it! Luckily she respects that now.

You guys need to learn to turn that around. Exhibit A - Put on sunscreen. I bet if you used half (or more) of a bottle, applying liberally in places one normally wouldn't, she won't tell you again, heck, she may do it for you.

I am old enough to be WAYYYYYY past any stupid skinny jeans, however, she bought me some to wear to some "event". I put them bad boys on, turnt them into some Ed Grimley nut huggers, I got to wear my nice broke in Wranglers and boots instead.

Some things I don't mind, but when I feel it's gone a bit too far, I turn it around a little. Nit picking typically stops for a while.

That was the only time she ever bought me anything like that. I was like "What in the actual hell are those?"

I am a Carhart bib overalls or Wrangler jeans, t-shirt, ball cap (not some ultra lame flat brimmed crap) and work boots kind of guy.

My wife loves climbing DRT. She’s like Batman shooting up and down the tree!

"Same day you fold the laundry, honey."
That is related to my wife leaving clothes in the washer and dryer for what seems ages. It is like she attempts to call eternal ‘dibs’ on the machines.

When I need my hunting apparel cleaned, all that crap gets put on the formal dining room table until I am done.
