Mine was, well, interesting....

Last night we had my friend Bob over for dinner. After dinner, Bob suggested that we go to Riley's (the local gun shop). Jen was fine with it, busting my stones about the two of us (Bob and I) needing alone time on Valentine's day. My little one had a virus, and Jen (and I to a lesser degree) haven't slept since Sunday night, so she was going to go to bed early anyway.

So Bob and I head to the store. We get there, and I immediately do what I always do, which is to head to the Walther case. Nope, still no PPS. That's ok, I don't have the money right now, anyway.

A little history on me and the PPS: I'm infatuated with it. It's georgous. Since I saw the "THIN" add back in what, September/ October, I have been drooling. My carry gun is a J-Frame, my main competition gun is a P99, I want something that I can do both with. The PPS fills that niche perfectly. I've been obsessing about it ever since. Love at first sight, really. My Wife is tired about hearing about it. My friends are tired about hearing about it. Hell, I'm tired of listening to the voices in my head!!!

So, we go to Riley's last night, and they don't have one in the case. I turn around, and Bob hands me a card. I ask him if this means we are going steady? He tells me to shut up and read the card. I read it. It's from Jen. It says "Happy Valentines Day, hope you enjoy it". Huh? There's nothing there. Why is he giving me this in a gun store? He tells me if I hug him, he's going to punch me. He slides over, and my buddy who works there, hands me a box, a form and a pen. Bob hands him a credit card. Huh?

I open the box, and it's a PPS.

I'm confused. It seems that my Wife decided to get it for me. She (with Bob's help) went to the store, ordered it, and got it for me.

I'm not sure that I'm happier with the PPS, or the fact that my Wife willingly entered a gun store?

Whoa.

So again I ask, how was your Valentine's Day?

You are one lucky man! That's a terrific story! Your wife rocks! So does your buddy! And you're gonna love shooting that PPS!

In the morning I gave both my wife and daughter Valentines Day heart pins to wear during the day. My wife also received a bracelet and a big heart shaped tin that I dumped the chocolate from (she said she didn't want any) and filled instead with Weight Watchers chocolate cakes (she really likes those). Our daughter got the Webkinz Love Frog, a heart shaped box of Reeses chocolates, and a Valentine Pez dispenser.

My wife had to work late (til 8pm) because the school district she works at scheduled parent/teacher conferences on Valentines Day. Geez. But our daughter goes to the same district so she had a half day, getting out at noon. I had the day off and took my daughter (11 years old) to see the Hanna Montana 3D concert movie. It was surprisingly entertaining.

When we got home, she wanted to make a snow man. Then I piled snow to make a little sled hill for her. Later, we threw a pizza in the oven and watched "The Phantom" movie that I had on tape, which she'd never seen before and really enjoyed (one of Catherine Zeta-Jones' first films).

We're all off today so we're going to "Valentines Day lunch" at our favorite fancy seafood restaurant.

The thing that "gets" me though, is that while my daughter and I were having fun watching the Hanna Montana movie, that piece of crap at NIU was shooting people.

I only wish that my wife would do something like that for me! I'm so jealous! :D I suspect that you will have much fun when you take your new toy to the range!!!
