She was a drunk and I paid her 6K to go away and never come back.
A few years ago I found a NOS 1998 Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster in transparent teal finish that I had on my radar for a couple years. I was on the road working so I sent her a picture of it when I got back to the hotel room. I asked her if she was ok if I bought it. Her reply, “Sure it’s pretty, you know I like green”. She didn’t ask how much or anything else. She’s been pretty much like that on all of my gear purchases. I am truly blessed to have her.
Gentlemen, you have all learned the most important lesson: always marry up.
I feel ya. Me too.
Wife: I saw an old console stereo out in the alley on the way home.
Wife: Relax - I already pulled all the tubes for you.
Married for 42 years and counting for us. We still make each other laugh. She's a quick wit. For example, way back on our 25th we were out for dinner. The waitress had just come over to the table as we had lifted our glasses to toast. My toast was "Wow, 25 years. You know... It's probably 20 of the best years of my life." She without missing a beat said "That many for you?" The waitress almost fell over laughing as we both broke out laughing as well. The key with all seriousness is we never take each other for granted.
My first wife left me for another guitar player after a year telling me that I'd never amount to anything. As it turned out, that was an error in judgement that I'm glad she made.
She loves it.
Other than she got me a custom shop tele for Christmas (avatar)?
I picked up skydiving a few years ago.
She hates everything about planes, but comes to hang out at the drop zone on weekends with my boys.
Also tolerated the bumps and bruises I’ve collected.
"John, come look at this beautiful blue guitar on TV! You don't have that color, why don't you buy one?"
My wife told me to buy the 60s reissued les paul standard last year.
last week she said she wanted her own 1911. Now she has it.
My wife likes to fish more than I do. Now that is saying something, because I love to go fishing.
I feel truly blessed that I don't have to ask my wife's permission to buy a frikkin' guitar lol
Some mostly non-music-related items:
She married me when between us we barely had two nickels to rub together.
Put up with me while I alternately barely made a living playing clubs
Or got part time jobs in sales or restaurants
Then tried working full time jobs and sucked at them
Supported me when I went back to school
Left her job in non-profit management to raise our first daughter (and eventually all three)
Moved 1800 miles with me when that was what it took for me to get a job
Stayed home with the kids while I worked ridiculous hours
Didn't throw me out when I wouldn't have put up with me
Stayed home until all three girls were in school
And is responsible for them turning out to be great human beings
Took a part time job that used her management and admin skills
Plus let her pick up the girls from school
Supported me AGAIN when I went into full time ministry
Eventually became the exec director of a non profit that does land and water conservation work all over southern California
When she died the local papers ran stories calling her a Legend.
And through it all she thought I was the one putting up with her.
Much more romantic than Mig.
She doesn’t really like an audience, but was happy to sing a request for her son that required me to stumble through the chords. YouTube put the date on it; the actual date was in 2013. The panting is our old dog who had Cushings disease at the time.
We’re in our 47th year of marriage.
I have 50 guitars and she's ok with it. Nuff said.
She's put up with me for 3 days in a cabin in the woods with this new toy I got at a music store here on our vacation
Patience of a Saint.
How do you like the Morgan PR12?
I've been married for 42 years to the same wonderful woman. She has been a Registered Dietitian for the better part of 30 years, graduating university with Cum Laude accolades, and was a Special Needs teacher, both at the elementary and secondary levels for over seven years. She achieved all of this while being visually impaired. The only thing that I have observed her not being able to do is drive. She is probably the most competent, honest and thoughtful person I know, but beyond all this she just loves me. It can't get much better than that!
Good for you. We discuss all purchases over a couple hundred dollars since it’s our money, not mine.
