"not arguing with wife" is better for your health than bike exercise.

My wife has made some comments similar to the “mistress” thing. I have a special little sunroom off the livingroom that has my classic racers on display. She says it’s my “altar”. Being a preacher, I told her to please not refer to my rare classics as idols but rather investments, to which she knows the value of them in the event of my demise. I shouldnt have done that.

No worries here, TimothyH. Been married to this gal for over 30 years and I don't plan on kicking her out anytime soon!

Can't believe not one of you slackers posted this. "My life, my love, my lady, is the sea."

Brandy is such a fine girl, too. Sorry I missed the easy mark!

My wife doesn't object to my cycling. In fact, sometimes I will return from a long bike ride, and she'll give me a sly look and say, "Want to go for another ride?"
