    Just a google image search. Surprisingly I don't have a lot of my own squirrel pics. I did share a bunch of raccoon and other pics in a thread a while back. You are more than welcome to those.

    The most important thing I learned here was that fnfalman was banned.

    My wife and I are pretty traditional just because it works for both of us.

    She does all the housework. I handle all the finances.

    (I actually worry about that and try to keep an envelope updated with instructions in case something ever happens to me.)

    She never leaves the house not looking good.... I constantly exercise my patience.

    She walks around the house in next to nothing. I take advantage of that on the regular.

    It works for us.

    Good salesmen know if you ignore the wife you are not going to make the sale. In sales you have to entertain a lot of twits both male and female.

    And as far as who does the negotiating it depends. There are some women much better at that sort of thing than their husbands.

    My wife and I are equal partners in our marriage and make decisions together.We purchased a new 2018 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner back in December and conducted business together.In some relations some are better suited for certain things and the other better than some other things.Some days it's 60/40 and others are 40/60 but should always average out 50/50.The days where the man ruled the roost are long gone.Being overbearing is not a successful recipie for a healthy union.

    I know a couple. She once went to a Mercedes dealer to buy a top-of-the-line sedan. She was well dressed and professional and driving a two-year-old Mercedes. The sales guy pretty much told her to come back with her husband.

    She called the owner.

    She's a senior partner of a large international law firm and wanted the owner to know what kind of idiot he had working for him.

    Fwiw, her husband is just an investment manager/stock broker, etc.

    My wife's domain is pretty much where she decides at any given time. Her being very independent at a young age was one of the things that attracted me to her. It's either bitten me in the or chapped my ass about 35,692 times. 35,693 is coming shortly when she calls to see if I've washed the dishes, yet. True story.

    In today's society, the very notion that you ask this is insensitive and intolerant. How dare you?

    Any human can do anything they want and this is the result of that thinking - society going down the drain.

    Three years ago I went out and bought a new 2016 4Runner Trail Premium with KDSS while my girlfriend was at work. I was retired.

    Three days later I took her to the dealer to buy her a car. She picked it out and I negotiated. I wanted her to look at a Lexus of some sort. She wanted another red Camry LE to replace her 2006 with 160k miles. It was running fine and is still on the road from what I'm told.

    I told her a Camry had to have a V6, but they didn't have any V6s and weren't expecting any. Meanwhile, after the sales guy and I followed her around the lot looking at colors and interiors and finding nothing she liked, she sat in an end-of-the-year 2016 Avalon Touring on the showroom floor and fell in love with it. Silver with black interior, 2 miles on the odo. Fine with me, she picked it out and I wrote the check. Even got a $3000 rebate plus another $4000 off.

    We finally got married this past November.

    The urban dictionary discusses Glock Talk. Some of their postings are nicer than what was online 15 years ago. But some themes never go away for some of us.

    "Those guys at Glock Talk sure know about guns, but I doubt they know a damn thing about women.":okie:

    We allocate responsibilities by skill.

    My wife handles all finances and investing simply because she's very good at it, and I'm not. I was able to fully retire at 54 primarily because of her investing skills.

    I select, and buy vehicles. I usually research, and select appliances and furniture.

    We individually do what we're good at,and it's worked very well for us.
