isn't the trick to sneak it into the shed when she isn't home then pretend it's been there for ages ? :)
Having lived through a pandemic I now understand all the painting of fat people on couches!

I've suggested to a couple of mates that we say we are just storing it for one of the others of us. Nobody has taken me up on it yet!
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

I have a good mate in USA who is a multi-millionaire stockbroker. Still scared of his wife.

He has 3 aircraft but wanted a flash $200,000 aerobatic machine. As his wife came out to the hangar from time to time his mechanic , who is also a pilot, said the aircraft belonged to him and he just let Peter fly it when he wanted. Best laid plans....................

After finding out, she remained perfectly calm and said "That's nice dear" and trotted off to buy a $180,000 ruby ring declaring it a nice balance against his plane. All Peter could say was "That's nice dear."

Wasn't that fair?

What's good for the Gander is Good for the Goose.

Not 100% correct but in this case it fits.

It is better to regret things you have done than to regret not doing things you wanted to do.

I'm glad I was a teenager before there was cameras everywhere!
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.
