    4th Wedding Anniversary

    So, as the title says, today is my wife and I's 4th wedding anniversary. She surprised me this morning first by informing me that she didn't have to go to work, because she took a day of leave (AD Marine) to spend the day with me.

    Then, as we are about to get ready for a shower, she asks me to grab her new shampoo out of the back of the van that she had forgotten to take out after her trip to the store yesterday. So I oblige, and head out to the garage. As I'm opening the back hatch, I see her standing in the doorway of the garage with a cheesy grin on her face. I look in the back of the van and, lo and behold, I see a partially opened box with a familiar Mossberg sticker poking out. I knew immediately what it was. I'd only been telling my wife how I needed a shotgun for a couple months now.

    I open the box up, and there's the Mossberg 500. In all it's plain, simple, pump action glory. Included was a couple boxes of target shells. She next informs me that we will be going to the range to try it out. Could this day get any better?!

    Could I have the best wife in the world?! Yes. The answer is yes. I do have the best wife in the world.

    Me too, after the "getting ready for a shower" part I thought the rest was going to read like a certain section of a men's magazine.....


    Congrats on the pump!

    You'll get a few arguments from other guys in the forum about her being the best wife, but no argument whatsoever about putting her in the hall of fame! Congrats!

    I wonder if he got face cramps from the big grin he got when he saw his new shot gun.

    25th aniversery is silver, 50th is gold, what I didnt know was that the 14th was Ivory! I could have used that one. Now I find out that the 4th was pump action! Where were these rules when I was passing them? Anyways, Congrats on the new shooter! DR

    Sweet!

    Could this day get any better?!
    Possibly, but I think you'd best keep that to yourself!

    Hey, congrats on your anniversary, and best wishes for a long and happy life together. I hope you pay as much attention to Mrs. Pittypat as she pays to you!

    You mean that magazine some of us may read for the articles?

    As to the OP one can only hope you got her something equally fabulous!!
