Okay, so every man needs his toys. Yes, it really rings true. They might give them up, but to be really content they need a way to release some of their tension from work, family, etc. My husband works so hard for us, and has wanted a lot of things but had to say no due to practicality and funding. He sold his Corvette when we had kids, went into debt so we could have a house, and works extra to feed his family. So, when he found a boat and started dreaming, I agreed to help him (yes, it is a fixer-upper). No, I didn’t need more work, but my husbands joy is worth it in my mind. So, for Independence Day, we worked, and worked hard, to get our “new” boat ready to go out on.
So, anyway, this is the boat. We got to test it out before buying and they all had a blast (before it ran out of gas on the other side of the lake. Really. The guy got it back slowly without paddling, but recommended we keep a paddle in the boat. Really? You think?! (Actually, he was really helpful, teaching us everything he could think of and even willing to come help Hubby learn the ins and outs of driving the thing over the next few weeks). I’m happy for my Sweetheart!
