After 20 years of marriage, I get thismoneyman

Saturday morning, sitting in our garden, my wife asks me to get up and move the sprinkler. When I come back, she says "Wow! your calves are huge! You used to have little chicken legs, but not anymore. I like it!"

I love my wife. I love my bike. Usually in that order.

My wife just makes fun of my tan lines :) nmTomS

Last week my 13 year old look at my calves and said, "Dad, your calves are gross. They have to many lumps and bumps."

I took it as a high compliment.

P.S. My wife loves the way they look.
Our children always claim to be embarassed . . .ms

My 13 and 10 year olds claim continually to be embarassed by my bike shorts, my legs, etc. BUT, one day when my 13 year old did not know I was within hearing range, I heard her boasting to one of her friends about how fast (if she only knew how slow I am) and how far I can ride.

my 6 year old always thinks i'm going to win every race i enter and is always telling his freinds how fast i am. kinda cool, but after all he's the only one who thinks that way!
Hmmmm, interesting coincidence...MXL02

Sitting at the dinner table last night, I looked up to see my wife staring at me, suddenly she said, "You look like you did 20 years ago", referring to my 20 lb wt loss incurred since I started cycling. Wives are the best!....

Sometimes I feel like you don't even know me. . .

Can't imagine that conversation going the other way without something being thrown back at you ;-) Cool though that the wife is checking you out after 20 years. . .
I got the opposite reaction last night...Slowclimber

Mine told me that my legs were smaller and my gut was bigger.

Of course I haven't been riding as much but carrying a party ball around my mid section is a lot of work, especially up those big hills.
anyone know where I can find a wife?? nmafrican
