We often ride together, camp together, hike together, canoeing or kayaking, and plenty of other adventures. She followed me to the junkyard a time or two but didn't care for it that much. She doesn't woodwork, target shoot, hunt, work on cars, and leaves me to fix most things and completely tolerates my dabbling and eccentricities. I don't knit, machine sew (I can hand sew and she can't), paint, and whatever other hobbies she likes. We have plenty we enjoy doing together and we have plenty we'll wander off to do ourselves. Been working for the last 15 years and looking like it will last well past the 16th anniversary.

Well she will change a tire by herself and has done it out on the ride but usually it's ME!! It's like this, she sews and I bought some jersery's at a great price but found out the pockets were TINY and useless, she re-did them so I can actually get stuff in them, LOL, so I don't SEW so it's a fair trade as I usually do the minor maintance but if I need help or a extra or smaller pair of hands, she's right there. We also walk and volksmarch and been married for 40 years, have known each other for 50+ years and she's still around! YES, I am VERY LUCKY!
