If I must approach the pearly gates against my will, I plan on going with a crowd.....

Something I once heard from a CQB instructor back before it was called CQB.

"Never ask your wife to choose between you and her family. You may not like her choice."


That was my father's advice before I married my wonderful wife of 17 years.


His other good piece of advice was related to buying 'stuff':

"If you want to buy something think about it for three days. If you still feel you really need it after the three days ... buy it. If it costs over $1000 ... make that three weeks."

I'm not always good at following that advice, but I try.
