Oh yeah! Wife knows about it. She's got a great sense of humor, if twisted, by 40 years of marriage to a submariner. I've been informed that, if it arrives before Christmas, it gets wrapped and put under the tree. No lookin'!!
So, even if it gets here this week, no model till Sunday. Bummer!!
As to the Gato, it' scheduled to come out one week before my birthday. If it doesn't arrive till after my birthday, it's Christmas present. Talk about sweatin' it!!!!!!
And to make it worse (if possible), starting in September, she'll begin asking "Is the U-boat done?" If I can't say yes, she'll point out, "Well, you're not ready for the Gato, anyhow." If I don't finish the u-boat, I won't be sure if I'm getting the Gato till Christmas morning.
Wives, with a sense of humor, are dangerous.
I don't suffer from ulcers, I'm a carrier.
