    How do you know you have the right woman? We went to premarriage counseling. We answered 50 questions- 48 correctly and the same - 1 wrong but we agreed and we still don't agree on discipline of children.

    OK Ron,
    We did get that story and that sentiment. We were just giving you a minute to compose yourself. I very much enjoyed the fact that you enjoyed the time and interaction. It is not always easy to be "present" in some of the projects that are usually the baby of one partner and that was a very special time. I wish you many more of the same. Now about that door!

    Your stories are very meaningful round here and that one is special, thanks for sharing it I hope the boss doesn't mind.

    My wife is quite possibly the least mechanical inclined woman on earth. I can tell amazing stories on her but won't. But every now and then, more often than I would ever have thought, she will zing me with solutions to problems that are baffling the heck out of me. "Could it work if you did it this way?" You know, that sort of thing. I know now, after 25 years married not to zone her out when I'm flustered about some nagging problem. It's a wonderful feeling for both of us. She'll jump around and holler; "I'm right, I'm right, I'm right" while I plant kisses on her.

    Anyway, we built our first house (stick built) back in '95 and may embark on our final venture in a year or so. Logs are a consideration at the moment.

    Great forum and fine folks.

    Ditto this. My wife didn't want to go to class, as she hates school. But she was extremely supportive and totally onboard. She has come up with zingers also and has helped some. But just being onsite when she could and preparing meals was a huge help.

    Bo, I think a lot like your wife. I DESPISE even the thought of going to school. If anyone is apprehensive thinking the LHBA class is anything like school, allow me to just say, it is not. (well, now that it isn't held in Skip's home anymore, maybe it feels a little more like school) No tests, no essays, no detention, ;-) just a very well structured, casual arrangement. There is no pressure, as anything you missed can be addressed on the forums.

    It was the most enjoyable 24 hours of school I've ever had.
