I found a way to stave off complaints from the XYL about shirking household chores, skipping baths, not going to work, etc. so I can have more time to do Ham radio. Hey, I have my priorities.

I never was much of a guitarist, but I dragged out an old, LOUD tube amp and guitar with rusty old strings and started crankin' out the power chords in the living room.

A few Jimi Hendrix and Billy Gibbons licks later--or at least something remotely resembling those famous riffs--and the XYL had a change of attitude about what Ham radio is all about.

The next time a complaint appears to be forthcoming, all I have to do is a few "air guitar" riffs and I won't hear a peep.

The solution was so easy. Why didn't I think of it before...oh well. Now I have to find out why she has her suitcases out and packing, apparently for a long trip(?) It must be a business trip for her job. I support that fully, like any good husband.
