    My wife caught me using one of her craft paint pens to draw the track center line on my tables. She theartened to turn my 2-6-6-2 into a flowerpot:cry:. I will never do that again !

    Well that's not as bad as using the kitchen blender to grind up ground foam! :)
    (NO, I didn't do that!)

    Never get between a woman and her craft pens...and don't play in traffic either...but I think the first one is more deadly.

    How many have heard..."are you using my fabric scissors for your trains?" I might have heard that a few times followed by the sound of me quickly putting them away like a caught in the act 10 year old.

    She finally forgave me, but I still get a dirty look once in a while.

    I got caught this afternoon using one of Alicia's sewing needles to scrape a tiny bit of white paint on the reporting marks of a G Scale Covered Hopper I use for Demonstration purposes at work. I can't obviously print white decals so I used my vinyl cutter to cut a reporting mark stencil, applied it to the car, used white paint and a brush to dabble the paint on it and then used her hair drier to dry it really good before removing the vinyl stencil, but being as how the lettering was so small, the centers of the "R", "4" and "9" didn't come out as clean holes, so I looked around and feeling particularly lazy at the moment grabbed what was handy to fix it, a sewing needle she uses for needlepoint.

    She came home and caught me red handed. 6 hours later, she's still POed.

    I was using MRS Highlanders hair dryer to dry the PVA quicker as I laid the ballast. Left it under the table in the loft for a week. MRS Highlander not so happy when she found out where it was.:oops:

    Cheers J&D

    I've taken my mother's tea strainer and she saw me using it on a project the otherday, I don't think she realised.

    The back of my head still hurts after my wife saw me using "The carving knife" to cut my foam. "THE" meaning the good knife...

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    You really need to get your own stuff...! ;) :D

    But in a pinch, remember that "it is easier to beg forgiveness than to ask permission". sign1

    I have managed to acquire scissors, a hair dryer, pins, needles, and thread, nail files, brushes, and so on. My secret... simply buy her a better one... hamr :rolleyes:

    Now that is just plain silly. Why not just buy the new stuff for yourself in the first place?

    Oh, wait. I'm married; I should know better. :oops::oops::oops:

    Never mind... . . .
