    M, I'm convinced I could "thrive" with my Dano reish DC 59 and my Yammy SSC 500. Let me have my two Silvertone amps and 4 pedals. I could do this. Mrs. FEZZ worried about # of gits when we lived in apartments. Books were also a problem. Now I have a house with a "study", now I can plot and buy ENDLESS gits+amps+ 'rassling mags!

    Wives don't "look" for anything. They find.

    Count her fingers and toes and then say how beautiful number twenty really is.
    Then take her to the salon.
    Don't suggest "waxing"...

    I do guitars,,Hot rods..old Sports cars and Motorcycles..

    She does Jewelry..clothes and shoes. A couple weeks ago we heard a loud noise coming from large walk in closet. (I get 1/3 of it for my meager attire)
    Her shoes and clothes ripped the mounting screws out of the wall and colapsed the entire side, 150 pairs of shoes and who the hell know how many clothes..

    But I did get to take it all out..then rebuild it better..stronger..and OMG she is donating clothes and shoes !!

    Five brackets..all metal..cross drilled rods where they join..

    I was married to a drop dead gorgeous woman who looked like Marie Osmond back in the eighties, she got mad at me one day and grabbed the loaded Colt .45 1911 Govt. model I kept on the bedroom closet shelf.

    She was unable to rack the slide to chamber a round. So, I'm here to tell the story. :rofl:

    I took the gun away from her and we remained married in nuptial bliss for another 4 years. :dude:

    I was wise enough to not get married again and now I'm the proud owner of numerous guitars, amps, motorcycles, guns and knives and a house that's PAID OFF!!

    I was 27 and she was 18 when we married.

    The shoes take up way more room than my tools - uh - guitars. But it's all good there's one more closet that ain't overflowin. Yet.

    I was once married to a real good lookin' girl too. 5'2, about 98 lbs, red hair and icy blue eyes.

    A valley girl, believe it or not.

    That woman could draw a credit card like a New Orleans pimp draws a pearl-handled knife out of his boot.

    And when she was mad at me, if I wasn't around to throw something at, she'd break my $hit. I once pulled out a treasured Buddy Holly record out of its jacket -in pieces.

    I looked at her with an incredulous look. She said "I was mad", and shrugged. She had broke it up, then put it back for me to find later.

    Woman was as cold as a Winter night in Peoria.

    For literally YEARS (a decade and a half, at least), my ex thought I ought had one black amp. In actuality, I had probably a dozen amps. They just happened to all be covered in black tolex. It didn't matter if it was a Crate or a Fender Twin Reverb. To her, it was just a black amp. LOL

    I don't miss her. The Twin, yes.

    Whenever I buy a guitar on ebay (I always bid very low and have picked up some real bargains. Last was a '71 SG100), I have to keep my fingers crossed that my wife, a nurse working shifts, is on duty the day it's delivered. Then it disappears into the clutter of my room. It's worked for the last two, she doesn't even know they exist!

    Mine's gone on a kick lately of telling people how many I have. Every time she quotes the number it seems to go up one. I need to buy a few more so she'll be telling the truth.

    Two marriages, three live in lovers and a fair few medium term relationships. I finally realised that no woman could have a life long partnership with me and I have found out why; it is me! Every guitar I have owned, I never got bored or fed up playing with it, even when I got a new one. However this cannot be said about the women in my life. :)

    I guess I'm lucky. Erin doesn't care about the number of guitars I have. All she gets concerned over is can I pay my monthly bills and if I have enough food.
