My wife, Candy, is convinced I suffer from a severe case of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). She points out that in comparison to what most think of as a normal home life my outlook is way out in left field. I guess I reinforce her assumption since I'll gladly agree that I've no (or at best, very little) interest in anything that has doesn't have to do with trucks, cars, motorcycles, tools, flames, electrical arcs, loud noises, grease, grime, and rusty chunks of metal.

There are other examples of differing outlooks in our household as well. Like the fact that since our home driveway has the capability of fitting nine vehicles comfortably, why not take advantage of the space and fill it up (as I have)? So, it's with this in mind that I've decided to either prove my point or hers by asking you folks to take a few minutes and consider the following so I might gain enough insight to either argue my case or humbly submit that Candy may be on to something.
