So it's not just me then?I sometimes get told my workshop looks like someone's just tossed a hand grenade in........... to which I usually reply "you should have seen it before I tidied it up".
Another poll copied straight from RCM&E Seamus.
No idea HT, I hadn't particularly noticed.Never been married myself (neither has my partner) , so I probably won't get to try divorce either!
I read the above thread with interest..... ....some months ago, a bitterly cold winter's day to be precise, my bloke, Stevepilot took me up to the Derbyshire moorland to introduce me to the delights of radio controlled slope soaring. I wasn't at all sure what to expect.... certainly it wasn't the 40mph gale, the wind chill factor of minus 15...or the tears streaming down my face as a result of the appalling weather conditions!! Bizarrely all that was forgotten once the glider took to the skies, and i was fascinated by the Middle Phase soaring over the Derbyshire countryside, all piloted by Steve.. that was it... I was hooked!!Since then I've acquired my own transmitter, learnt to fly the Middle Phase thanks to a buddy lead rigged by my bloke... still have a huge amount to learn of course, but am on the point of buying my own Wildthing... not so scary to crash as the Middle Phase..... and even the weather has improved!!So come on guys... don't write us off as just interested in the here and now....or the guy of the moment!!I'll be back on the slope come rain or shine.... and hopefully, Martin, so will your girl!!
Correct me if I'm wrong, but is there a high proportion of separated/divorced people in this hobby?Or is that just everywhere nowadays?After reading some posts, I'm beginning to wonder.
Well im divorced..
see you, and raise you twice....
see you, and raise you twice....but Sal is a great gal who loves coming flying, going to shows, etc. and nags me when a model is lying unfinished....oh, and loves watching full size stuff too. 3rd time (actually about twelfth) lucky!
Tsr, Kim sounds like a splendid example of the breed...........
Great but she still considers me a geek
Oh that's a new one Brian.. I never heard that after the first twenty or thirty times after my third divorce either! Or was in forty? It also irritates the hell out of me how some make light of separation and divorce by the little 'jokes' and winks. If they'd been in the shoes of someone who had been reduced to a near gibbering wreck because of the aftermath of it they wouldn't be joking about it.
Strangely, mine knew I was a (computer) geek when we got together, now I've taken up flying she's happy I'm doing something that gets me outdoors!So flying makes me less of a geek in her eyes...
Brians comment didnt bother me at all... i actually do like fruit cake.. its my most favourite of cakes. Life does not always turn out how we expected or dreamed it would.
Its something that takes people different ways. My first divorce was a huge relief, the second was my own fault and I deserved all I got. I do, however feel for those who have had a bad one. You just have to move on, or it eats you up.
