    Default Another one? What for?

    Pertaining to bows, how many of you have asked this? What for? What's wrong with the one you have? And any other ways of questioning the want of another bow?

    I hadn't really thought about it, I mean the wife asking this, until today. I had just finished shooting and was in the archery club meeting when I got a call from my dad. He needed some help as he had bought something at this auction. Okay, meeting over and over to his place. A piano? Okay, so me and my brother took off following dad and his trailer. Upright, low profile piano really looks super nice, I guess, if you're into pianos. I sort of question dad's motives, but the wife got him playing her electric lap organ a few weeks ago. So my wife's fault. So I got someone to blame
    So my brother and me lug the piano into dad's living through the dining room. And I count; one ten string electric guitar, one flat top quitar on a stand and this in the dining room. In the living room; one banjo, one rythm guitar, one bass guitar and one guitar he said he used as a back up. Yeah, and now add one piano.

    And I have too many bows and want another?

    So brain engaged I get home. The wife has a fishing pole rigged and propped next to the creek. I walk through the garage and count no less the 10 more fishing poles of hers, 3 tackle boxes and 3 buckets of assorted sizes for when hauls assorted catfish bait and whatever to go fishing.

    Not withstanding, more than half our garage is filled with her collection of stuff from the many back yard sales she "just has to go to."

    Point is, maybe I do have too many bows and maybe I don't need another bow, but now I have ammunition for that next bow

    My wife quit asking me. I finally started asking her years ago WHY she needed another purse, another pair of shoes, more jeans and assorted knick-knacks.

    Well she one day asked why I was asking her. I told her she always made me justify another bow, another gun, and more fishing gear. She quit asking me and I quit asking her.

    I bought another pistol about two weeks ago. This week to my surprise I came home from work and my wife handed me a pistol case. As I took it from her I could tell it had a pistol in it. I asked, what is this? I expected to hear that someone she knew wanted me to fix it or something of the like, instead she says, I think I got a real good buy on it! I looked at the pistol and asked what she paid for it. My gosh, I trained her well. She got a super deal on it. She says if I don't want it she thought I could trade it in or sell it for more! I never get rid of any that come into my possession.

    Now I have to figure out how I can buy her something .... or what to get her ....

    Maybe a bow ...

    Thumbs up Thank God you aren't into photography....

    My camera equipment seemed to be getting a little old so I started updating it about a month ago....10k plus later....and I still feel there is another 3k I could easily spend, so when I look at my little collection of bows with one new one still on order and a Bear Minuteman I just had to scoop up on Ebay, I think the Archery is not too bad.

    Sonny you are doing all right. Follow your heart, and one of my favorite sayings, "Stay Gold Pony Boy, Stay Gold!"

    ...and Mike G. I know you have got to know, THAT GIRL IS A KEEPER FO SURE!

    Mike, my wife is the original fishin' nut. I can buy her a new rod and reel and she's in 7th heaven. Throw in a couple of pretty sparkly bass lures and I got it "made in the shade." She's partial to blue metal flake bass lures and really big Jitter Bugs

    Sonny, that's actually pretty cool! I'd be out there fishing bass and muskies with her and buying her anything she wanted!

    My wife doesn't hunt or fish really. She'll go out with me on the pontoon boat, but she just likes sitting in the sun. She has no problem with me going hunting, fishing, or just shooting. She enjoys nature and animals and has no quams about helping me butcher a deer. She is also a great cook!
