    Hi,

    I first heard SWMBO on a BBC series called Rumpole of the Bailey. It was about an old Barrister who referred to his wife as She Who Must Be Obeyed.

    If you think you understand what is going on, you haven't been paying attention.

          From the 1926-1927 Model T tool kit. The square end was for the differential plug. My father kept the tool roll when he sold the car (he never could part with a tool), it was around the house for years. My brother probably has it now (he can't part with a tool either).
