Wink What's the term?

If they were muscle cars, he'd be a "gear head." But they're Airstreams and Argosies. So what exactly is the term I'm looking for?

Alluminati


--------------------------------------

Look up 'illuminati' in your Funk & Wagnall's... Kinda like, "If you have to explain a joke, fuhgedaboutit!"

Okay, the quick American Heritage Dictionary version: "1. Persons claiming to be unusually enlightened with regard to some subject."

with some guidance

I would just as soon had been "aluminuts", but my wife thought she couldn't be whole hearted about such a name. I found the history of an aluminum sub
http://www.smv.org/info/aluminautEX.htm
and we compromised. Good thing for me

it depends...

Edie, my wife has a number of names for me... which name gets used depends largely on whether or not I took out the trash or did the dishes...

He doesn't really claim to be unusually enlightened. More like he's obsessed and wanting to learn more every day.

Yeah, if everything is good he's Brett; if I want him to do something he's "Sweetheart". But somehow I don't think that's the name your wife uses.

Oh yeah, "yes dear" are fighting words in our house.

" Werewolves", the only thing that will kill you (polishing and repair) is a "Silver Bullet"!
