Default Re: Wive's or Significant Other's Hobbies;

I met my wife in college. She came from a family of lawyers and doctors, and their idea of a hobby at that point in life was doing well in school. She honestly didn't have any hobbies outside of normal socializing when I met her, although her family travelled quite a bit around the world.

I rode a motorcycle, and she got into that as a passenger. I sailed, so she got into that. I bicycled a LOT, and she got into that (big time). When I hit 30, I bought my first large sailboat, and she was totally hooked. Between the time I met her, and 30, I didn't do as much fishing, but she fished when I did. I was into R/C planes, and she got into R/C planes as much as anything to that point! The Academy of Model Aeronautics has sanctioned clubs and fields, and we've belonged to clubs with over 250 members.

About 6 years ago, Yvonne decided to drop her spinning gear, and focus solely on fly fishing. She's progressed well, but I've been there to hold her hand along the way...except for the when she slipped and broke her ankle a year ago. Even then, she did her fly fishing from a wheelchair!

My wife is president of a chapter of the National Association of Insurance Women, and that's the only thing she does that we don't do together. I've thought about bringing some chicks home to see if she'd be into that, but I know that wouldn't fly...LOL!!!!

I wouldn't want to be married to someone that didn't share the same interests that I have, but bringing something new to the table would be nice. I do enjoy teaching, and our hobbies are the kind in which you're always learning. My wife claimed to have ridden a bike when she was a kid, but revised after I presented her with her first bike: she sat on the seat, and expected it to go by itself. She fell over without moving one inch foward. I then taught her how to ride a bike. The one thing she is not interested in as assembling rods and tying on flies. She says I'm better at that part, and wouldn't want to get things wrong. It's like having a caddy.

Nice quilt, Ard! Have her show them locally, and to the lodge visitors.

Default Re: Wive's or Significant Other's Hobbies;

My Daughter Julie is 'heavy' into Quilting; have several here at the house. Amazing what these folks can turn out via bits and pieces of fabric.

10 - 12 years back I walked through her 'new' old house she'd purchased and blanched looking at the construction. Put her on the phone with USAA and got her insurance coverage changed over and had her insured up to the hilt for everything/anything.

Year and a half later (Christmas Eve of all dates) the thing burned to the ground. There was nothing left, including her pets ...... Only 'good thing,' if there is such a thing as that given the situation, was she was at her Mother's. Found out about the fire via a neighbor's cell phone call.

She's on the phone to me and Now What Dad!!!!!!!

I was in my car and roaring north in less than 30 minutes. During the drive I'm on my phone with USAA. Folks were there hours before I arrived. First was a pre-paid credit card for $5,000 to cover 'incidentals.' Was interesting to take her to this huge Mall the next day for clothing, etc. All she owned at that point was the clothing on her back and her auto.

The drive up? That was also interesting as I'm not a fast driver, 65 and I'm 'maxed out.' Around Corvallis, Or I'm pulled over by the OSP. Guy gives me the usual, driver's lic/registration, stuff. Tell him to just 'Just give the fking ticket, I need to get out of here. My Daughter's home has just burned down.'

Guy looks at me and said (to the effect) 'You're not kidding are you? How fast do you feel comfortable driving?' Said 70 -75 if I have too.

"Follow me." All his lights on all the way to the Washington State line. There was a WSP car waiting for me in Vancouver, WA for the rest of the trip to Auburn.

Took a couple of weeks to get her sorted and into an apartment, but USAA was there all the way. They paid for everything, and promptly.

Amazing Company; amazing Police Officers. Took a bit of doing to track down the Officer's Duty offices, but both got 4 dozen Roses.

Another quilter here............

Marty has been doing it now for several years. She's also been active in an organization called "Quilts for Kids"; which supplies bright, happy-colored quilts for children with cancer and rare diseases.

And, she's also my regular fly fishing partner. Here on the Salmon River in Pulaski, NY looking for a steelhead or two.......

Beautiful quilt going on there, Ard, very nice!

Bridget owns her own VERY demanding medical practice services company, so she works about 25 hours per day. But when I can break her away from it, she does this:

And this past September, she did it better than anyone in camp!
