    Nice surprise today!

    I got a call from my wife this morning that blew me away. "Hi honey the gun shop called me, your new gun came in".
    She put down a deposit, without me knowing, for a S&W 642 that I mentioned a month ago. So I took off work a little early and brought it home. After 28 years of marriage she is still full of surprises and the most thoughtful person I know😃. Here it is all cleaned and ready for the range. Now I get to hunt for a holster.

    Costco has a nice set of Tahitian pearls in their store.
