Thumbs up My wife is awesome!

We are having family pictures taken this weekend and she wants the Defender 90 in the photos! It is her idea, not mine...

My wife rocks!

Yeah, my wife mentioned including the Defender in our Family Christmas photos a few times, but I've never made it happen (my fault really)...

She had this painted on the wall of my home office years ago though as a gift..

My wife is tolerant of my Defender and refers to her as my mistress given that I spend so much time on top of her and underneath her. But my wife requires that I always practice safe repairs, and wear latex gloves

My wife was responsible for picking the color of my 90 and begging me to get a professional to repair it prior to driving it home. Now she drives it almost as much as I do.

Funny... My wife thinks this "Land Rover Thing" of mine is absolutely retarded.

negative, this is from my former pipe bane, the Keith Highlanders. The only American band to be an official band of a Scottish clan. (The Keith)

My service was....elsewhere. (no Boathouse)

and no, not a piper. I'm the bass drummer.....someone has to keep the damn pipers in step.

I'd post a pic but my wife really doesn't like the whole internet pic thingy. But, considering she allows my collection of cars (D110, RRC, and 63 Jag MK2) to sit in the back yard and just bought a 2013 LR4 so that I can take it over in a few years and she is hot as snot (a few of you have seen her stand next to me and I know you can't figure it out)…..i am in the the "my wife is awesome" club.

Props to your wife's fellow clones.

ok. Mine too. When we were dating she actually gave me a push start in my 75 midget and still went out we me again. She has put up with restoring 3 1983 240 Volvo Flathoods (grp A cars) and stuck by me even though she has had it up to her elbows in Defender stuff. Besides she game me the 2 best gifts ever, my son and my daughter.

Mine too! She has allowed me to sleep alone...put her car in driveway so parts can be piled up in garage...spend every weekend away from kids fixing it and secured a suction hose to bank account to fund it all.

BUT she is also allowing me to take her to Seychelles for New Years and I have lost all rights to complain about anything. Trade offs :-)
