    That's a classic! I'm the same way with all three of my kids! The 14 year old is a burn anaylizer (he tries out EVERYTHING that's around, just to see how it burns. The 12 year old is the most responsible one, he can start fires with flint and steel already! My 7 year old daughter, now she's the one who's gotta be out there with her daddy no matter what he's doing. She'll help me split wood all day long, never tiring of it. Plus she loves cooking on the pit! Gotta be hereditary!!

    I don't drink (I don't not drink, I'm just not that into it)
    I don't smoke.
    I don't do drugs.
    I don't gamble.

    As of this spring I have an addiction: Firewood.

    I'm just glad I'm not the only person obsessed with something that last year I would have thought was insane!

    As it has been said . . . it doesn't matter how long you've been here or how short a time you've been here . . . all are welcome . . . and all viewpoints are pretty well tolerated unless it's something that is just plain stupidly dangerous . . . fortunately folks espousing viewpoints that are dangerous don't tend to stick around . . . theys jest kinda goooo awey & spoo ther nonsensicale ramblins lsevhere. ;) (Sorry . . . inside joke.)

    I'll up the ante.

    I don't drink alcohol (other than a very occasional Woodchuck).
    I don't smoke.
    I don't do drugs.
    I don't gamble.
    I don't drink coffee.
    I don't watch a lot of TV.
    I don't run around on my wife . . . heck, I try to avoid running whenever possible.

    There's not much left to me other than obsessing over firewood.

    If I didn't drink coffee I would be intolerable, okay, more intolerable...

    Shoot, I make y'all look like saints.
    -I drink quite frequently, but not usually very much in one sitting.
    -I smoke my pipe and when the time is right I break out a nice cigar and Scotch.
    -I watch a ton of TV, I say it's because I work with children and need to be able to "relate." I really just like Cartoons (shhh, don't tell people that).
    -Coffee? Heck yeah, I get my fair share of caffeine through coffee, cappuccinos, energy drinks, and diet soda.
    -Drugs? Does a buttload of advil and/or aleve count? cause I'm not getting younger and joints have been killing me of late.If not OTC drugs, then see caffeine above.
    -As for running around on my wife, well, you've seen her. Even if I wanted to, I certainly couldn't do any better. Why on earth would you rent a Festiva when you have a nice Ferrari in the garage?

    I hate when I come in late.
    Oh, oh....I get it now. N/M

    I havnt seen her but ill take your word. Could never figure guys with drop dead wives get caught with the skankiest of temps.
    As for booze ,got a full sized bar in the man cave,Barrel of cream ale on tap at all times,once had over 100 dif bottles of whiskey,rum.brandy,gin, teq,ect till my son had a huge party while i was away on vacation, but i dont drink every day. usually just 2 times a week, weekdays and weekends, and only two time of day,daytime and nighttime(just kidding)
    NO drugs unless aspirin is included. No gambling Only addiction is wood burning and wife pleasing. Got one of those ferraris myself. Oh and I left out good music (vietnam era stuff).

    I'm with both of you guys. Why on earth would a man make a commitment to a beautiful woman and then go run around on her. Not gonna happen in this house....I love my wife and kids more than life itself....

    You have a beautiful family yourself, Scott.

    I am thankful everyday for my Wife and Kids. They put up with quite a bit of Yit (Firewood, Saws, Pellets, Stoves, more Firewood)!!! But they cant ever say they are Cold in the Winter :)

    Your daughter (Avatar) looks just like your Wife..

    My Wife was 25 in the pic, 29 now.

    Age is something that happens to all. I am looking forward to my older years and grandchildren. I like to think I am a great Father for my Children (the 10 yr old says so :) the 16 month old, not yet) and I hope I can be half the Grandfather that I had (Dads side). He did so much with me when I was young and had such an influence on my life. Good man, Hard worker, and great Fisherman! Between him and my Father, I knee I wanted to grow up and have kids. So I could provide for and do the same things they did.

    Family is so important. They make it all worth it!!
