After 12 months on and off building the 'pit for the Uni, I finally told
my wife that it would be leaving the following tuesday.

"About time" she replied... "I'm sick to death of you spending all your
time in the shop working on that damned thing instead of me!"

Half an hour later, she comes into the shop.. "since this is going in a
few days, I suppose I'd better have a go and see what you've been doing
all this time."

I install her in the cockpit, show her the basic controls, load up an
nice'n'easy GA twin, and let her loose.

2 hours later... I'm still waiting for her to finish so I can get back to
work... "no chance buddy".
