    Nice! I got a Micro 355, a bit early! We're doing gift exchange New Year's Eve with our girls, they have extended family obligations & work, eldest is a Nurse, she works most holidays. In laws last night, I got a nice rifle case, bottle of Casadore Tequila, Cabelas Gift Card, and a sweet lunch box, bag style with 5 cup thermos, Thermos Brand, so a good haul. Wife got Baileys, movie money, steak house gift card, and a twisted ankle slipping on the ice when we got home, hospital tomorrow morning if things don't improve. :oops:

    Congrats. Anything hunting or shooting related, I have to get for myself. Even my youngest who was the best hunter/fisherman of the 3 no longer lives in that world. When I'm bored, I go put a different combo of riser, limbs, rail, stock together and shoot it for a while. Used to be into guns, but now not nearly as much. They have reached the "tool" status now. Sorry Dan. I "liked" your post before I got to the last part. My apologies to your wife. Hope she heals quickly.

    Well, i wrapped her ankle this morning, and iced it down off & on, and she is able to put some weight on it now. We'll know first thing in the morning what we have to do. Hoping to spend the day at home though.

    Not from Santa but I bought a Savage Axis in 6.5 Creedmore. Got it within the $100 rebate period.

    Planning on using it as the basis for a budget build.

    Dan, i hope your wife is ok today. Hopefully the swelling goes down and she just needs to stay off of it and take it easy today.

    My christmas gift was a new car that didn't come in yet from the new car depot. It was supposed to be here but with the holidays it kind of screwed things up.

    Back to work for me tomorrow. Got Sandy walking to bathroom & back, she was able to get into the shower & shower, and the color looks good actually. Our youngest dropped by today, called while on the train in from Chicago. My wife says, Dad needs a break, ordered wings & pizza from the local Pub. Tells me to pickup @ 5:30, order won't be ready until 6:10 the young lady tells me. I call home, wife says have a pint or two. I obliged! :cool:

    Two days of work this week for me. I have two last minute gifts to get Friday for Sunday Gift exchange, but I'm feeling pretty good about that. Too cold to hunt for my arse this coming weekend with temps in the single digits. I do like my soup & veggies in the off season, and the youngsters will get us some steak house gift cards. Tag Soup maybe for SuperBowl. I dod have some kick ass recipes for other stuff thank goodness!:rolleyes::cool:

    Yep. My wife has been sick for a few weeks and now has a sinus infection. Her vacation from school is just going to be getting better. She pushed through Christmas Eve, which was our big day. This is all still a lot easier than last year when she had the broken shoulder. I have a cold, nothing like hers, but enough that I'm not motivated to go sit in this cold weather to watch birds and squirrels.;)
