Dear Capn Jimbo,
I have been so blessed in my life. Great parents, great wife and kids, great job, and a great education. When I finally retired, I could hardly wait to spend time enjoying my favorite pastime -- bass fishing.
I got a tandem kayak and tried to get my wife to join me, but she just never liked fishing. Finally, one day at the Bait & Tackle Shop, I got to talking to Sam, the shop owner, who it turned out loves bass fishing as much as I do. We quickly became fishing buddies.
As I said, the wife doesn't care about fishing, she not only refuses to join us, she always complains that I spend too much time fishing.
A few weeks ago Sam and I had the best fishing trip ever. Not only did I catch the most beautiful bass you've ever seen, only a few minutes later Sam must have caught its twin brother! So I took a picture of Sam holding up the two nice bass that we caught and showed the picture to the wife, hoping that maybe she'd get interested.
Instead, she says she doesn't want me to go fishing at all anymore! And she wants me to sell the kayak!
I think she just doesn't like to see me enjoying myself. What would you do?
Tell the wife to forget it and continue my hobby or quit fishing and sell the kayak as she insists?
Thanks, A Fisherman
P. S. I have enclosed the picture of Sam showing off the bass we caught.
(Capn's Note: pic was changed to a .jpg, 80%. Instead of 380K it now uses just 25K. No loss of quality, you can still see those bass, lol...)
