Have you ever noted that being the dad, husband or significant other dogs body you are heavily invested in hobbies? I don't mean yours though, everybody else's. Fixing things for someone to use. Buying the last outstanding item the other one needs. Ferrying them and their gear to the given location at the appointed time.
Still, on top of this there is task of staying up do date with the latest developments, trends and practices. Not because you want to know but because everyone turns to you for the answers and you know who carries the can when it all turns to tears.

My lovely wife has taken up beekeeping,



At least I like honey

I started building models, then I was collecting more than I built. Now I'm more of an archivist.

Beekeeping huh! Could be worse mate...also it can work to your benefit in the long run....my wife is a "Quilter" and she will head off to her sewing room for hours at a time...which leaves me to do whatever....watch V8's get to the bench....oh yeah...Honey is good!

Quilts, the other way to stay warm on a cold night.;)

I think they are happy in their new home.
