Wife Inventoried My Fleet

My wife came into my shop and inventoried my fleet of helis today. Seems there was a marked increase in inventory from the last time she snuck in.

Instead of a new Trex 450 Pro - I have now purchased a diamond bracelet!

Don't think so - I'm just glad she didn't check anything else!

Kinda sexist to say, but wives tend to resent hobbies. Anything spent on hobbies is not spent on her.

If I could find a spouse who would buy ME helis, I'd be married.

Don't feel bad, my new heli is going to cost a new pair of Sarah Palin Kawasaki designer glasses for my wife.

See, what you do is dont throw away any boxes your helis come in(Good hiding places) and dont be to neat, kinda leave things laying around. Once you build up a large enough stash, she wont be able to tell when you have added a new one to the fleet . I have about 40 helis but if I ask my wife how many do she think I have she would probably say about 15
Check out the pics you'd get the point

Its three of us and Im glad we have 5 bedrooms

I have to be honest, I even lost helis in all this stuff. Kinda get to the point where I know its in there somewhere.

FRAC, I think you can figure out the answer to your question!

BTW, My Mancave is FAR at the end of the storage room with many obsticles in the way.
As suggested, boxes help hide the evidense and all those boxes should be labeled "parts".

John, sorry to hear of your situation, but if you can afford it, spring for some botox or something then pop out that Pro you want later.

Darth, you should be able to hide at least 4 MSRs in that Cheez it box!

Already been that route - 15K of cosmetic work (I couldn't tell the difference but it made her happy - so what the hell).

The diamond bracelet is cheaper and you don't have to wait until she feels better.
