So, I had this awesome telescope that I've been trying to sell. A local gentleman offered an amount far below what I wanted, but SWMBO said to go for it. Against my wishes I sold at the offered price. The following conversation ensued after the buyer left with the scope:

SWMBO: You okay?
Me: Yeah.
SWMBO: Feel like you just got raped?
Me: Pretty much.
SWMBO: Well, think of all the brewing stuff you can get for the money you just got!
Me: You are awesome!

I hate you, you know...

Not really I'm just jealous that you both have someone in your life, and that she supports you in your hobby.

The days where I don't remember that are the really bad ones. So, I try to think of that every day.

Yep,
Scopes can be hard to get rid of. Sold my 5 yr old Meade LX-50 for half original cost and ALSO had to spring for $200 shipping to send it half way across the country to the interested party

Imagine all the brewing equipment you could have gotten if you sold it for a higher price!!!

Sorry, had to do it.

You know I sometimes look at my scope collecting dust in the corner and say, yah I don't use it much anymore... but I can't seem to part with it. Its an orion 10" f/4.7 Dobsonian. Paid $500 for it. Great planetary imaging scope but without tracking its not attractive to most people... oh well. At least your SWMBO sounds pretty cool about the money you got for the scope. She's a real keeper man!
