When I retired, I could hardly wait to spend time enjoying my favorite pastime -- bass fishing.
I bought my own little fishing boat and tried to get my wife to join me, but she just never liked fishing.
Finally, one day down at the Bait & Tackle Shop, I got to
talking to Sam the shop owner, who it turned out, loves bass fishing as
much as I do. We quickly became fishing buddies.
As I said, the
wife doesn't care about fishing. She not only refuses to join us, but
she always complains that I spend too much time out on the lake.
A few weeks ago Sam and I had the best fishing trip ever. Not only
did I catch the most beautiful bass you've ever seen, only a few minutes
later Sam must have caught its twin brother!
So I took a picture
of Sam holding up the two nice bass that we caught and showed the
picture to my wife, hoping that maybe she'd get interested.
Instead she says she doesn't want me to go fishing at all anymore!
And she wants me to sell the boat! I think she just doesn't like to see
me enjoying myself.
What would you do? Tell the wife to forget it and continue my hobby, or quit fishing and sell the boat as she insists?
P.S. Enclosed is a picture of Sam with the two bass we caught.
Get rid of that narrow-minded wife.
That's a nice pair of bass!
