Default Famous Wife Quotes and Comments

I was thinking about it. My wife wonders why people fly model airplanes. Ultimately she says they either crash them, sell or trade them, or let them sit in the garage forever. Her best suggestion was for me to put a black 30-gallon plastic garbage bag in the very back in the fuselage as I build. She says that way, I would always have a bag to pick up all the balsa pieces the next time I crashed my plane into smithereens.

I am not really making fun of wives really, it is just that without them, we would go all through life thinking we were perfect. Enjoy your flying guys and girls!

Yes, it is a cemetery and I'll bet there are very few complaints at that flying field about the noise level. It is an ill wind that blows no one any good. If we can find a patch of ground, relatively free of power lines and plane-eating trees, it is as close to heaven as some of us will ever get. Flying is so much fun, I am surprised it has not yet been banned.

Isn't it tough dodging the tombstones when landing and taking off?

A couple years ago, I had a bad summer. I was smacking planes into the dirt left and right. My friends started calling me "Crash". It was bad.

I finally started carrying a black trashbag with my in the flight box. I'd pull it out at the start of the day and stuff it in my back pocket. Let it hang out and flap in the breeze. Everyone thought it was hilarious.

I quit crashing planes. At least for awhile.

My wife used to hassle me about planes. I told her I could take up drinking and hanging out at the bar with all the single girls, if that would make her happy. That shut her up. Made me happy.

That second pic looks like some guy puked an airplane
My wife likes the models much better than full scale bikes and cars. They keep me at home too.

My wife of 33 years tells me "You and those model airplanes...it's a sickness, just a sickness!" I tell her that it is better than alcoholism to which she replies, "Yes, but it is still a sickness!" Maybe she is right, I have been flying rc over 30 years and the thought of quitting never enters my mind...

You can call it a harmless addiction, a compulsive disorder, a juvenile trait, anything you want, I just call it plane fun. Pun intended
In my experience this hobby (sport) gives folks a good break from other less important things. Remember all this living is not a destination, but rather a trip. So the moral of the story is to smell the nitromethane along the way.

Hey, just wanted to add a little comment to this, i am a student in the UK, and my friends spend all weekend either drunk, or recovering from hangovers in preperation for going out and getting drunk, bearing in mind that a pint of ber costs about £2.60 and a shot about £2.00 (on weekends, it's a bit cheaper on student night )where as i do have a few nights out but i spend my time "playing" s they call it with my planes but i don't spend anywhere near as much as they do and in the morning all i have got is the urge to go out again, no hangover. The guys who also do fly model aeroplanes with me agree that it is much better than getting drunk...lol...just...anyway guys anyone got ay thoughts on what aviation is a good substitute for and why it's a part of life?!?!

(***NOTE* drinking is fun, flying is fun but one should never attempt to drink and fly, it can be very dangerous to you and those around you...as drink flying kills nearly half a person every year!...with that in mind i bid you fare well!)

As long as my wife has more clothes and shoes than most third-world nations she knows better than to say anything about my airplanes!

I must be lucky. My wife wants me to go fly. If I have a bad day at work and come home in a bad mood. She tells me I need to go the field and get a flight in or go out the shop and sand something.

Similar situation here. Problem is the other night was the first time she was ever in the shop while I was covering an airplane. She just watched for a while and then said, "I don't ever want to hear you say you don't know how to wrap Christmas presents again."

I think I'm screwed.

Perfect. Next Christmas, bring out the fiberglass and epoxy resin and ask her if you can wrap the gifts for her side of the family.

I agree with kzaiser. Or just Monocote one of her presents. Maybe missle red with a chrome ribbon. That should be good for 20 minutes worth of fun.
