Interesting list of courses. I must be very fortunate because I think Buck would ace most of them. Although, he may need a refresher on class 3 and a bit more than a refresher on class 7. Otherwise, he's A-okay. I bet the classes filled up fast and, imagine, the wives did most of the registration since men can be awful procrastinators.

i would have to agree i am pretty lucky too my hubby might need to
think about # 2 and # 7 too but that is it. i think i could help him
with # 2 if i only just did not replace the paper a time or two. but then
would he not take out the trash thinking i was going to do it??
# 7 i have given up

Women! Hmph! Try to be a nice guy and what does it getcha? Dont get me started on a list of things that women need to take classes for. Don't get me started.

Ha! I was just kidding. Some of those were actually pretty good. Myself, I already have trained myself in most of these techniques. And those I haven't succeded in, well I think it's organic mental difficiencies that suppress my ability to conquer those problems.

7 and 12 are biggies for me, especially 12. But then again, when it takes my wife four hours to pick out a package of toilet paper and Laundry supplies, I don't think there is a man on the planet with that much patience.
