Stu and I decided to buy an excavator..... ladies let me tell you... this is a full proof plan to get your husband out of the house!! All of our husband's played with Tonka toys in sand boxes when they were boys, this was not to fulfill boredom, this was to fulfill every man's dream. Men love to operate machines! It doesn't matter if it's raining, snowing, or night time, Stu is in that excavator. He wants to eat his meals in it, he wants me to watch him run it, he wants his family to help him move stuff with it, this has turned into a full time relationship. Ladies, if you need to get your man out of the house, get him a "girlfriend". Attached is a picture of her.
