Default My Wife’s New Ride / Early Christmas Present!

My wife has needed a new ride and we had planned on “pulling the trigger” today on a model she’s really had her eye on for a while. Weather was awful sleet, freezing rain, ice on road but the truck has 4wd and seat heat so we pressed on. I have been shopping around for a while and knew my bottom line before walking into the dealership. I won’t go so far as to say it was a “low ball” offer but it was competitive even by THT standards. I got the dealer to toss in a few extra options in lieu of financing offers, per THT I pay “cash ” on the barrel for everything.

All worth it in the end, happy wife equals happy life as they say.

Here is the bride with her new ride.

It was always a joke between my grandmother and I that I told her to take her broom to go somewhere . Her and I always got along great but she was mean to everybody else .

I had a friend who dared to even go beyond that! One year he bought his wife a beautiful (and expensive) custom fishing rod with an expensive reel for Christmas. He even had her name and the date put on the rod by the builder to commemorate the occasion. Thing is though she hardly ever went on the boat, let alone fish. So whenever the guys would be going on a fishing trip, he would ask to borrow "her" fishing equipment. Somehow or other he got away with that!

Why do witches wear skirts?

To get a better grip on the broom stick.

At least you did not get her an umbrella..Rumor is when those go into a body cavity and get opened, it is very painful..

You wouldn't happen to be a Marine, would ya? I have a friend who pulls chit like this all the time, his other Marine buddies as well, think it's a Marine thing!

Funny though. You have a great Bride with a great sense of humor to put up with you!
