... just happens to be my wife! Why? Well, if she wasn't The Most Wonderful Woman In The World then I wouldn't have married her. Therefore, she must be The Most Wonderful Woman In The World.
Please don't hate, and please don't feel bad ladies. I value each and every one of you. I suppose that goes for the blokes too.
Why again is she The Most Wonderful Woman In The World? I happen to have a birthday arriving sometime in next month's calender. No, don't panic! This date has been a yearly occurrence for at least the last 5 billion years or so. Now, why can I get away with stating that? Any takers?
Anyways, WP (Wifey-Poo, otherwise known as The Most Wonderful Woman In The World) asked me if I wanted a new bike for my birthday.
I have four bikes.
One of which is a snow bike from Fairbanks, Alaska. It's still in it's box. Not exactly useful down here, buuuuuuut you never know!
My mountain bike (do they have mountains down here in Oz?) is an indestructable Kona, no worries there.
My road bike (Rocket Butt) was bought for me by The Most Wonderful Woman In The World 6 years ago. It was four figures even at half off. There's carbon fibre tubing on it. It's great. It's wonderful.
When I needed new cycling shoes WP (The Most Wonderful Woman In The World) MADE me go out and buy a sweet pair of Specialized. I was forced, I tell ya!
After landing head-first on a tree stump (explains a lot, doesn't it?) I was told in no uncertain terms that a new helmet is in order. The colour of the new one even matches Rocket-Butt.
So when WP asked me the other day if I want a new bike for my birthday, I just KNEW she was wanting to buy me one of them new-fangled alloy things made of Unobtainium and costs around $20,000.
I told her I'd have to think about it...
I then told WP I've decided what I want for my birthday.
A cutting board.
Now I'm pretty darned frugal in the kitchen and the cutting board I have is an old off-cut of pine that I got for 2 dollars at a hardware shop 8 years ago. It's held up nicely, but lately the cleaver has been putting some serious divits in it and I have to flip it daily to keep it from warping too much.
I want a real cutting board.
Well, you can guess what WP did. She went onto the ole series of tubes and found the most beautiful cutting board that was handmade in Germany from smoked oak. It's normally $1000 and she found one for $600.
Of course I told WP that it was the wrong size, and that perhaps could she find one *slightly* cheaper. I think she got the hint and found a very nice one that was well under 3 digits.
Isn't she wonderful?
Why she's shacked up with me I truly have no idea. Well, it might have something to do with the fact that I can lick my eyebrows...
Since you've put up with my drivel to this point, I'll reward you with some birdie pics. These are some more reruns as I haven't had time to go through the last few thousands pics.
