Dennis, your post brought a tear to my eye, my friend. I, like you have a wonderful relationship with my fiancÚ. We both have our own interests, but share in to the extent possible in what each other is doing.

I know that Kay isn't particularily enthused about airplanes, but shes always shows an interest in what I am doing. She does accassionally accompany me to a fun fly or an IMAC event and will find a shady spot and do some knitting or read her current novel but she is there, sharing and that's what is important! Likewise, I go with her on some of her excursions, picking out just the right material for her latest quilting project, or to a quilting show. Again, it's the sharing that is important.

I have been in the hobby since 1991 and have accumulated a lot of "stuff"! I built a yard storage shed so that I could put all the garage junk out there and have the whole garage for my airplane hangar and believe me, it's been filled to the brim. Airplanes hanging here and there, work benches along both sides, with power tools lined up along the whole length. Storage shelves and racks in every available space with even the rafters filled with materials, kit boxes, rolled plans, balsa sheets, whatever I can stuff up there!

Kay once asked me what was normal when it comes to the number of airplanes guys in the hobby have! Normal!!! Whats normal??? I guess you could say that it's more of an obsession than a hobby ( right, skypupnut?) but we love it! Each one has their own idea of what normal is, for him/her!

Kay has often said regarding our hobbies, "I know where Charlie is and what he is doing as he does with me. We each have our own space to do what we like doing, yet are both still close at home with each other! God knows, there are a whole lot worse things that he or I could be off doing but we choose to be home where we can be together, sharing each others interests"

To me this whole thing is much more than a hobby, its a lifestyle and I am so very thankful that I have someone so close to share it with!

Re: The Sacred Workshop

Hi Leslie, if model aircraft interest you, then GO FOR IT! A family that playe together, stays together. This applys even if the hobbies differ.
In my case, my workshop is a tiny hovel about 6 X 10 feet, next to the furnace. My wife of 40 something years interest in aircraft mainly involve wanting to get on one and go somewhere, and her comments on my miniature efforts are more like " I like the color scheme on that one", or " that's nice dear". She does not begrudge me the time I spend down there, because she knows where I am and what I am doing (often nothing)
On the other hand, she has a hobby that takes more talent, and artisitic ability than mine, and has her workshop upstairs in a vacated bedroom. She is a quilter, and the results of her efforts, and that of her coven, never cease to amaze me. It's great when a family can enjoy varied interests without imposing on one another.
Now for a shameless plug. She and others have formed a group called "Quilts of Valor", an organization dedicated to making and donating quilts to members of the Armed Forces of Canada, who have been injured while serving our country.
I support her 110% in this effort, and if you know anyone involved with this effort, I hope you will too!

Re: The Sacred Workshop


I have to tell you that I've really enjoyed reading the responses to this thread. This kind of response was hardly expected, and obviously some of you took a bit of time to type out your replies. Kudo's to you all.

Today, while the wind is howling outside, I'm helping Guy apply Koveral to the tail feathers of one of his projects. Reading these replies, and other posts in this forum, is a great passtime while we're waiting for the dope to dry. Thankyou everyone!!!

That's the way to think skypupnut. I mean, do we really need living rooms???

I know that we would be quite happy in a smaller home. It would require a good sized kitchen and dining area. Most of the rest of it could be shop area; and we will need at least one extra double garage in which to store planes.

This is what the future has in store for my small family. The Sacred Workshop, will be the nucleus of our recreative lifestyle on the homefront. And I will get my own bench! And we will build airplanes! And Guy will probably still crash them! I'm hoping to take the time to be a better pilot.
