Sometimes you just need a model. That is why I like to go hiking with my lovely wife – I can tell her to go take a hike, stop, pose and stay still and she actually does what I say. Any other time she just looks at me with a smirk and says “you ain’t the boss of me”.  

Now that I think of it, we are overdue for a hiking trip together. . . .
