Mine doesnt get it, but she lets me get away with it as long as the rest of the bills are paid.

My wife is cool with it but I subcribe to the it is always easier to ask for forgiveness then get permission....

I just bring stuff home and deal with the fallout. There is ussually none but I don't tell her what to buy or not to buy either. In fact I am always pushing her to go out and spend some money on herself. She loves the boat however, and when it broke she wanted it fixed ASAP. If the Donzi broke she would not be so bent to get it fixed as she does not like that one. She did not get it when I told her that the Donzi would be around long after the Formula is gone.

Mine tells everyone that "the damn boat cost more that the house!" but she loves it. We met on the water and we'll stay on the water!

I have a newfound appreciation for my wife. Her worst reaction to one of my purchases was to just shake her head

Doesn't she understand that you just won two world championships? You are the king of the hill, at least until next season starts and you need that new motor in order to maintain your dominance of the class.

It seems that "Ruling the Seas" does not always go hand in hand with "Ruling the Roost"!!!!
