    Yep...New scoped rifle sounds about right. It's the thought that counts

    We try to keep the romance going even after being married for 30 something years(I don't feel like doing the math) . Today we will go out for a meal and stop at the local shop for powder and primers on the way home . Our anniversary is in a month so we save the heavy romance for that...going to a gunshow over in VT...She always buys me a gun on that special day . I am a very lucky man.

    Give her candy and a hour range pass, to shoot her new 22LR pistol and new ear muffs and shooting glasses. She will think she is obligated to try the sport and u may never know, she might like it. My wife of 32 years gave her stuff to our youngest daughter and went with us to the range. She loves to give!! still won't shoot :( o-well she goes with us and has fun!! I guess that is what it is all about!

    Two words: FLO WERS

    They seem expensive for something that's dying, but get them anyways.

    I gave my sweetie the gift of taking care of me at home after orthopedic surgery yesterday. 20yrs ago I would have been in the hospital instead of at home. This will cost me many times what a normal valentines day would have cost.

    I shopped early this year!! Stopped for flowers, card, and candy on the way to work instead of on the way home. The stores are just too busy with last minute shoppers in the evening!!

    I got up early and fixed my hubby a full breakfast. Eggs, sausage, fresh busicuts with susage gravy, a pot of coffee some fresh mixed berries (not sure how JayC has blueberries & strawberries this time of year, but at least not frozen).. Tonight I'm making steak (I saved the tip of the loin from this year's deer), buttered potatoes, grilled eggplant, salad and a peach cobbler. I may not have a lot of disposable income, but I can cook like I love him.

    Well David first you have to tell her how much you love her, The Flowers work my wife is a sucker for nice flowers. She even remembers the day Eddie K. gave her flowers at the range and that was years ago. Make a date with her for (dinner of her choice), and you have to make sure she no matter what she says or does she is always right. Then after dinner a move of her choice at the movies or at home. And then a nice Back Rub! If that doesn't work I guess I don't get to shoot your rifle.

    Like I always say ! They are all Sisters.

    Make her up a coupon book. One for every year you have been married. Include things like.....Dinner & a Movie etc. Different amount of times allocated for Slave Labor around the house & garden. And don't forget to include the very important......SHUT UP & Get away from me section ( 10 minimum )......You get the idea....;)

    Regards
    Rick
