    During the pandemic I built my home office. My wife will look in, shake her head, and say "at least when you close the door I can't see the mess." Works for me. She has nothing against my radio hobby (she used to be licensed), however I've never gotten to putting up a tower. The dipoles are low profile enough that you all but have to go looking for them.

    We recently started watching Monk and if I dare make a comment, she'll shush me: "It's rude to talk while watching a documentary!"

    [I'm not convinced she's joking... sometimes it's a little eerie watching the show...]

    My first wife, as it turned out, didn’t much like my antennas much. Or my rigs either.

    Which is not the reason we split up. Well, not entirely.

    Suffice to say, in hindsight, I chose... poorly.

    Now, the second time around... after almost 30 years, I chose... wisely.

    Tony Shalhoub was brilliant in that.

    Spoiler alert (sorta): If you haven't watched all the shows, you probably still don't know who killed Trudy.:p But that is finally revealed in the final episode (or maybe it was two, I forgot).

    :) No, haven't gotten through it but I do recall hearing about the ending years ago. After binge-watching various things over the last couple of years, I've decided to space it out a bit. I think we average one show a week?

    I do like the show, it's a bit comical to contrast that with his character Fred from Galaxy Quest. :D

    Lol, the residents just call it Bend. The over part is implied.

    It is not just antennas. It is anything that you play with more than her. o_O
