    50th birthday present from my wonderful wife...

    50th was end of September, but we were out of town. Had a celebration last night for my 50th, and our wedding in May (2nd marriage for both). My old hunting buddies came in from 6 and 3 hours away, as well as friends and family. Wonderful time.

    After all the adult beverages, smoked pig, wedding cake...wife and I had finished cleaning up and were getting ready for bed. She looks at me and says, "want your birthday present now..." I smile and say, "am i getting lucky tonight??"

    Her response, "of course you are...but here's what I got you for your 50th...."

    She tosses me a bag with a new iPad, and a card. Card reads, "Use this $$ for your dream Mule Deer hunt!" In there is $3k cash that she has been squirreling away for two years. I was speechless!

    She had been texting and calling my hunting buddies, one of whom works for Cabela's corporate in Sidney, NE for months. Wanted to get me that dream hunt.

    That is a good woman right there!

    Lucky man, she is a keeper for sure! For my 70th BD my wife bought me a Swaro range finder/bino combo to use on my guided elk hunt to Thorofare.
