Yes we all have! Any one that says they are the boss in their relationship are deluded!

My Mrs never noticed that I upgraded the plotter for a bigger garmin chartplotter. Cracks me up everytime we go out as it stares her in the face!

I'd say that was fair comment , so the wise will have 'clocked' something of hers to counter with. ... I've already got mine in the bag ...I've gone a step further and contributed to it .... Cheap at half the price of getting away with my own wee, nay ... Considerable blag

My mrs never noticed that I changed the wheels and tyres on the landy, plus put a snorkel on, well not for about a month anyway! By that time it was not too bad.
I didnt lie, just didnt tell her!

She doesnt know I have just had it remapped, and a few other "improvements" either.

Working on getting a new Garmin 751, to replace the old 400 series. I think she might notice that, but maybe not?? I will just wait and see if she does!
