    Wasn't very long ago this would have been a punchline to a joke. "Oh, I bought my wife a skilsaw or drill for her birthday, Christmas or whatever"....basically meaning you bought yourself a new toy. What lucky husbands to be able to shop for your gifts in the Tool Department instead of Women's Laugerie. Only thing better would be, not to have to shop at all. "Happy Birthday Babe, don't forget to buy yourself something" This is what I do! [​IMG]

    Hehe, no kidding huh?! I waaay prefer to slowly cruise the aisles in the feed store, tack store, or Lowe's... and lingerie... not too functional when you have to fun out to fix something during the night, lol. Tho very odd- our first anniversary- he got me an espresso machine and a small fish tank, very odd combo! (I grew up with fish tanks and always found them calming- chickens have since replaced them, lol)... of course, he never learned to operate the espresso machine... fairly sure that was so I would make him stuff with it!

    That is cool! We are going to give our chickens a chicken-port (covered outside area, I hafta find a cute name for it still, lol). I have a nifty feeder which is similar that I want to get hung up when we are done...but I can't take the credit for it... might make something to better hold the oyster shell as well.. currently it is in a ratty old pot. Though that does admittedly work!

    I also would rather be in a feed store or Lowe's. If anyone ever gave me a table saw they'd be a friend for life. Last Christmas I asked for saw horses. I wanted the metal kind. Didn't get it. Oh, well.

    My boyfriend got me a Home Depot gift card for Valentine's Day. He knows I don't like fresh flowers because they die. Funny because I used to be a florist. But he figured he would get me a gift card so I could spend it in the garden center... we ended up getting a shop vac with it :p

    [​IMG] I trust she enjoyed her 30/30 as well as your Dad's flowers. Turnabout is fair play!

    We got some of the metal ones on CL. They are awesome! Cumbersome, but awesome still :)
