Had a great couple evenings with my wife recently.
We had conversations, and did things around the house, and even ran errands. We've both been so busy for the last few months that we hadn't done such simple things together in quite awhile.

On my own again for an evening, I got some good stuff done tonight.
I fixed a friend's spinning wheel (a little late though apparently, oops. Sorry m'lady), cleaned up a 2 hand planes that were my great-grandfathers's (one from each side of the family!), and folded a fuckton of laundry.
And even remembered to eat dinner!

Doesn't seem like much when I write it out, but it's a lot more than I feel like I've accomplished in one week-night in quite awhile.
Basement time! With gouges and wood glue! And old tools with history!

In closing, life is too short to not wear fun clothes.
Tomorrow I'm wearing yellow paisley underpants and my space invader socks.
Damn the torpedoes.

yay! Wife time is good time.

I am in full approval of the crazy socks and underpants. It occurs to me that I don't have any rocket-ship underpants. I should change this.

Hey, that's good stuff, all! Rock on.

And (having read the comments) Batman is an excellent choice for underpants. :)

I admire your use of "m'lady" and "fuckton" in the same sentence. Good show.

Your occasional posts on the subject make me wonder if I should be keeping an eye out at auctions and estate sales for any woodworking tools you might be seeking.

I'm pretty well stocked with a few very eclectic exceptions...
That said, there's a lot of value in some of those tools that are very easy to overlook if you don't know what you're looking for. I'd love to help you find the diamonds in the rough if there's a good way to do that.
