    I don't know about your theory Jags. My wife is north of 5'-6" and I get "smacked" all the time! :)

    You guys worry too much, it ain't serious till she's got the marble rolling pin or the cast iron fry pan in her hand. Then it's time to rethink any previous comments you've made in the past 10-15 years while running like a scared schoolgirl. A C

    My hubby just waits for "the look". And standing on the tractor isn't so bad - the car rubbing bottom would have deserved a beat down tho :) . When we do get snow & have to run to the barn for more wood...it's me that pushes hubby on the tractor when he gets stuck. (Mostly because I don't get stuck when I drive).

    When I read the title, I was kind of wondering why your wife would not be happy about a tractor counterweight.... Then I read the post and realized SHE WAS THE COUNTERWEIGHT!!!! That's awesome!==c

    If you had my MIL handy, you could have easily picked up another 1/3 cord with that load...

    Rigged up a weight on the tractor. Somehow didn't make the wife feel any better.

    Sure, now you've gone and "shown" her what you think she weighs. Enjoy the doghouse! ;-)


    ...this will not end well! :)

    Cheers!
