Nope. Sorry. If she did, I'd have probably converted to a fundamentalist Mormon sect and married her, too. Marrying my wife is the smartest move I've ever made. Two examples: My wife once actually asked me if we we had enough ammunition in storage, and she actually said, in front of witnesses, "Honey, I think you should buy a bigger boat."

REI once sold a packet labeled as dehydrated beer, and being young and foolish at the time, I bought one. Tasted like camel urine probably tastes, and after reading the label I learned that it contained NO alcohol. Lousy taste, no actual booze, no wonder they don't sell it anymore...

I'm sorry but we have to raise the BS flag on this one.

Next you'll be telling us that she's letting you keep the baby Sasquatch that followed you home....

Did you leave yourself logged in and it's really Mrs. McCann posting???

Actually, some of us do have wifes like that. Every time I hold a Springfield M1-A and drool, mine says "buy it." Sadly, I never do...

No BS. My wife is really pessimistic about the government and economy, so she supports my preparations. As for the boat, I suspect she just didn't like going out on the exposed foredeck to strike the jib in any sort of seaway.

Sasquatch? No. But she did let me keep the German Shepard puppy I brought home on her birthday.

Me, too. I just can't seem to rationalize the purchase of another firearm, but the Springfield M1A would be my next choice.

IIRC, alcohol has a lower boiling point than water. So, to dehydrate a beer, you'd actually boil off the booze before the water left. I've also heard of dehydrated wine, but I bet it has the same problem.

Course, if you had dunked your feet into the "beer," added some sugar, and waited a week, you might have had something.
