    Nope, this one ........................

    “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.”

    Now, if you want to venture deep into the black hole of truth, remember the following :

    ) They all have the same equipment.
    ) Most will throw it at you like a frisbee.
    ) It all feels the same, the last five seconds.
    )“Marriage is no more than an act of insecurity brought about by social and religious teachings.”

    Well, don't say I didn't try.

    As far as safes go. We love our fort Knox. They build them however you want them. Our current safe is going with the house. Our new house, we are going back to a vault room.

    Edit: nothing is ever "done", there is still time to gather your wits about you and run....run away.

    Well, this is only the second relationship in my life. The first one lasted 30 years before it went to hell. BTW, no marriage, just living together, and it comes with a three car garage. :D

    LOL. I'm not running. This is a good thing. We've known each other for 13 years and have been dating for the past two years. It is going very well. And let me add that she is a shooter and loves guns and has several. She just doesn't get why someone would need 20, or some such number.

    And I'd love a vault room. That would be the cat's ass.

    I'll be there, and I'll ask Kate if she wants to go.

    I'm done posting in that thread. My story from the ex is in there somewhere. That's all I ever want to contribute.

    I read that thread when I'm stuck at the airport on layovers. It reminds me how good my life is with my very sane wife.

    Yeah, and that is what I have now in this girlfriend. Just a very cool, normal, nice person. When I was young and stupid, I made a bad choice, and then decided to try and hang in there. Bad, bad decision.

    Second new watch day in a week. I've been wanting one of these for years. I found a fairly priced one on eBay and used that 15% deal last weekend.

    It's a Citizen "Courageous" perpetual calendar diver. Photos cannot capture the true look of this watch. It's amazing in person.

    I think October needs to be "no new toys month" 3

    Kate's son and his wife may now be joining us. Her son likes watches, but he hasn't yet caught the mechanical watch bug. Maybe we can infect him tonight. :lol3

    Agreed. I'd pay a few bucks more for that.
