Allen- This is a wonderful site. A few days ago I did ask about giving my wife either a bag of shot or a sleeve of primers as a Valentines Day gift. I was strongly advised to pick something else and I did. I got her some roses and a box of candy in a heart shaped box. I do appreciate the advice given by others (recurvy, a nice shooting lady actually did want shot from pheasantmaster). My wife appreciated my (others?) thoughtfulness and I have been rewarded. My special reward is that I get to pick anything I want to bring in for dinner. Pizza for me tonight. Life is good.
I too had pizza brought in for a romatic Valentine's dinner plus a few shots of Macallum's 18 year old scotch. I don't remember much, but she said she had a good time. And today Her car get's professionally detailed inside and out... what a guy! Fred
Hey I got the best of all worlds. I got the flowers, candy, and dinner last night. Today we're going shooting AND a tomorrow we'll make a trip to Shyda's for lead and primers. (got the wads thanks to Kevin at downrange thanks Kevin!)and then on Tuesday he's taking me to the cherry pie shoot in Quarryville. As if that is not enough, on top of all of that, he will reload the shells for me too. Ladies, be jealous. My Valentine Duck is the best!!
After my wife gave me a Valentine's Day card (I think it was Hallmark), I found myself with nothing to give her. I was able to think quickly, get on the computer and print her one up from a $5.00 greeting card program. It worked and not only saved me from driving to the card store, she thought it was creative. Moral of the story, be able to worm your way out and still look thoughtful. Darrell
