Whats a girl to do ? My husband is a good man, but lately he's been keeping him self busy with a hussy by the name of Allis. Allis Chalmers . With measurements like WD45 hows a girl to compete, to be more to the point.I love my husband but don't want to share him with his "other woman" any suggestions or am I destined to accept this? signed Fustrated.

Good gracious, someone suggested to get him a John Deere. If you think he's gone a lot now, he'd need a motorhome for all the parts he'd have to go after and you'd NEVER see him...unless you went with him. There's the thing, spend that time with him. You just might gain an appreciation for his passion. If nothing else, drag a t.v. to the shop and watch a little if you find you hate his hobby. Most men don't mind having a t.v. around, even in the shop. Maybe take a small hobby of your own and a chair if there's enough room.

By now, I'm sure there's no doubt in your mind, "What's a girl to do?" I'd only add that you can do like my wife did when we got the Harley, just jump on with him and go. But seriously, I guess out of all those Chalmers', Allis was about the best one so be thankful also. God Bless.

A friend of mine told my wife that it is better that I come home smelling like old tractor than booze, perfume (not hers), etc... That seems to console her since now I get tractor parts, shirts, and other stuff. I still love my wife and kids much more that all the tractors I have.

Be glad his hobby is what it is - could be much worse; chasing, drinking, cavorting - you at least know where he is and what he's doing. Go out to the shop and spend some time with him. Don't look at Allis as competition, don't be jealous - pretend you like it. Show some interest, he'll love you for it.

Bring a beer, soda, or cookies with you to share. Hang out for a while.

Well an Allis WD-45 would be tough competition for any woman. You got some good advise though. I like the orange negligee!

My wife was/is in the same dilema, She claims that my shop is the other woman and of course she won't have anything to do with it. I offered to call in an auctioneer and liquidate everything. Then I would be free to go out boozing and chasing real other women or sit at home and stare at the TV all day before I go to work. My guess is your situation is tolerable.

Perhaps a "Persian Orange" negligee, worn with an Allis baseball cap and attached beige veil?

If you can't beat em, join em! My wife enjoys classic tractors almost as much as I do. Not quite, but close. She even bought me a tractor off the YT classifieds when I had to be away and wasn't near a computer. As far as your husband, well if he truly has "the fever" there is no known cure. I think this will become part of your lives together.

I agree. My wife helped me rebuild my WD. I'm here to tell you, there is nothing more satisfying to a husband than to have a loving, helping wife dive into putting new rings on pistons and torquing head bolts. Ask lots of questions, learn how the thing works. You'll appreciate equipment more and he'll be tickled to death helping you learn. And...get him some hand cleaner for Christmas.

Believe me you would not be happy to trade him for someone that is too lazy to get off of the couch. A man needs room for his mind to excercise and in the shop is the best place. You always know where he is and he will be there if you need him. Dave.
