    Hope this image shows. Barbara turned 80 today and I took this pic last week at Myrtle Grove. She had massive back surgery a year ago (7 hours under anesthesia) and has a Titanium cage around four of her vertebrae. She loves to shoot that K-32 and has shot rifle and trap through our 57 years of marriage.

    We'll be at the club again this Wednesday and will keep at it until we fade away.

    Good shooting to all.

    Happy birthday to your wife and many more I hope. I'm like you, too lucky to be real. My wife shoots with me also. We bird hunt and fish together and getting ready to go prairie dog shooting. Our 35th wedding anniversary was yesterday. She loaded shells while I finished checkering a stock. Larry

    Happy Birthday!

    I unlike many have been trying to get my wife to shoot. I love to spend time with her and think she would love it. I hope I am still this happy like you after 57 years.

    Could you share more about the titanium cage? What it is for and how it has worked out?
