Your ex-wife stole your heathkit. A tragedy in its own right, but  
when this phrase is repeated on its own I find it amusingly odd, and  
I'm sure others here do, too. It's almost like the beginning of a  
country-western tune. "my wife stole my heathkit and my nixie tubes  
and all she left me with is this VAX grant continuity card."
