so I am out of space, have been for a long time, seems like a lifetime I have been working and living in a space that is 1/2 as small as I need,

all of the white pine that I have been milling I put in my small kiln and dry it then set the pitch. takes a month or longer for each load in the kiln. the processed pine ready for sale is stacked on my outside enclosed porch. all of the material on the right side is stacked according to widths and thickness, and has been kiln dried and baked, all the material on the left side hasn't. so the other night after I go to bed , the wife is outside and what does she decide to do? after asking me three times if I can do something about the pine. and me telling her I can't it has to stay. she decides to make a giant pile, re arrange everything into one corner of the porch. so now I can not sell any pine for a while . it all has to go thru the kiln and thru the bake cycle again. I have no way of knowing if one piece or another has had it's pitch set.

wouldn't you know it, yesterday I get a call from a guy, big user, who needs a bunch of it. and want to come and pick up all that I have ready.  had to tell him he had to wait and he will definitely go elsewhere
bet I lost a grand and three months of work.

I wasn't there, and I'm not going to take sides here......but I'll bet that if she knew WHY the pine had to stay there, the result might have been different.

If there are 228 items in a room out of place and only 5 are mine, those are the 5 that will be moved to another location.  The other 223 will not be moved.

Me:       WHAT   :o :o   
Her:      It's ok , I did not touch any of your tools.
Me:       Then what did you touch,   :-\

I think I would have to retire. I have 12 years in my present house, of knowing where in my shop I have put everything. would take another 12 years to find everything and restore it to it's present form of (organized)  clutter.

My wife knows better than to even go and get a tool from my shop and NEVER tries to put them back when I do let her use them. She lays on the bench just like I ask her too and I put them away my self. Even my girls understand that.

Only one that doesn't is my son, and some time I could string him up. If the tools he has lost ever germinate I will have a bumper crop.

Happened here, too.  One time only and we came to the understanding that the shop was mine.  So then she moved all my tools/stuff into the shop and left it alone.  However, she just couldn't help herself yesterday and swept up all the sawdust off the floor, which I actually appreciate.  But I'm afraid she has her eye on the rest of it now.

A few years back after a rather nasty heart attack, I was hospitalized for about three weeks only to come home to find my shed/workshop had been "tidied"  most of my good stuff, carefully accumulated over thirty odd years had gone to the dump and the remnants sorted into the most illogical groups.  But, at least, it looked pretty neat.  I nearly arrested again.  I know it wasn't meant as a heart attack generator since I have no life insurance, it was intended as an act of kindness and consideration.

It was really tough to say "yes dear" to that one.

Strange how women think.

Don't do the wood working thing,but collect stamps and postmarks. I lived alone when I met my wife to be. I had one room for my "junk" as she called it. I could put my hand on anything in that room. She threated more than once to "clean" that room. I got ready to move and I "cleaned" that room. More than $4000 worth of "junk" was pulled out of that room.  ;D
