The perfect Wife

Post by LenV on 12/20/2016, 11:34 am

Last year at this time we had a similar post that we talked about the neat things we got for Christmas. I know this post comes a little early but the timing felt right today. My wife earlier this year asked me if I planned to buy anything special "for myself" for the season. I replied that there were a couple of guns I really wanted but I was flat out of room in the safe and didn't feel like selling anything just to make room. Imagine my surprise when a freight truck showed up today with a new safe. That is the definition of a "Perfect Wife" Very Happy


MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE

Merry Christmas Len and may you fill that new safe with guns in 2017.  And a Merry Christmas to all the BE community.

My wife gave me a bunch of new Starline brass for Christmas.

NG scope. My wife hasn't seen it yet but I have. I usually surprise her with what I get for Christmas.

I don't think she knows it yet, but she bought me a new barrel for my Wadcutter!   We always tell each other that we don't need any gifts for each other and usually go see a play together instead - this year it was Fun House last Saturday.   

We let each other indulge in our hobbies and that is plenty.  As a friend said, "A happy wife is a happy life!"

Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah.   Congrats on the new safe Len - and the challenge to quickly  needing a 3rd one.

My wife talked me into taking her to see the Nutcracker this year. She told me it was professional wrestling.

I asked my wife, what do you think?
She replied, she could keep a lot of jewelry in there.

I am "getting" a red dot rail for one of my High Standard barrels .  As far as I know that's it.

I learned that, when asked, just say "Nothing".

It beats hearing the "Do you think we're made of money?" speech.

Wow, that's cool!  When I turned forty I asked my wife for two 20s to replace her and she said I wasn't wired for 220. Laughing

Those timers were around in the 50's and 60's, but your's looks new. Did your wife find a source for new ones.
