>  I have been so blessed in my life. Great parents, great wife and kids, 
>  great job, and great education. 
> 
>  When I finally retired, I could hardly wait to spend time enjoying my 
>  favorite pastime -- bass fishing. I got my own little fishing boat 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 his 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 boat! 
> 
>  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 boat as she insists? 
> 
>  Thanks, A REAL BASS FISHERMAN !!!

>  PS Attached is the picture of Sam showing off the bass we caught.
