    I have the greatest wife!

    Tonight she gave me my present early. It was a new gun safe to hold my new collection. The guns needed a home. They have one now, but to my surprise, when I opened the safe it had a brand new Marlin 30-30 inside of it.

    What a nice surprise. I cannot thank her enough.

    What a great Christmas.

    How did she manage to get it down the chimney and under the tree without you noticing?

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    Congratulations! My wife got me the safe, no rifle. Could you have your wife talk to my wife?

    She got the safe/gun friday on her lunch break. a co-worker has a truck, and took her to the store. she brought it home, and stashed it in the store room.
    friday night after work we came home, and left out really fast to go to my mothers 170 miles away from home. Then tonight we got back home to do santa for my 3 year old. while i was in the back of the house, my wife wheeled it into the kitchen. She sent my 3yr old back to the studio with a set of keys tell me that they had a present for me.
    I came out to see the safe, and my 3yr old goes. Open it! you got a new gun in there daddy. She is so cute.

    Merry Christmas, everyone.

    The fact that she went to all that trouble, in itself, is a Christmas to be remembered. Great story!

    Got to love a woman that gets her man gifts like that. Tell her we think she is great.

    You are one lucky guy, and you're going to really appreciate that safe. The peace of mind when leaving the house is fantastic.

    Just how did she get it in the house without you knowing?
