So yesterday was the big 40 for me, and my family really came through for me. My wonderful wife got me a new pair of binoculars. They are Alpen (I am not familiar with this brand), the are absolutely fantastic, optics are 10x42 and they are super comfortable and very crisp. My folks got me a Leatherman tool, the 'Core' model which is just perfect. Lots of tools and 2 blades on this particular model. I am a very fortunate man.
