    I bought myself all the plates I needed for the Inline quick change mount. It was a lot of them, over ten. Does this count?

    I had Cricket's (my wife) fathers old Savage over and under completely professionally restored and gave it to her as one of her Christmas presents... She balled like a baby..
    Thank you again Rob for doing such a wonderful job on that gun... She is eternally grateful.

    I'm retired! The stress level had gotten to the point that I wanted to walk out every day. I wasn't sleeping, in a panic all day every day due to the workload, job used to be enjoyable but that was taken away over a long stretch of time. All is better now.

    Congratulations . I'm getting into the same boat with my job but I need to work a few more years yet . Might have to start looking for somewhere less stressful to collect a check from . Enjoy your new found freedom !

    Best present this year was getting to spend several days with my oldest son who has been living 175 miles away for the last five years and is now ( as of the 27th ) headed to Austin Texas for who knows how long .

    Second best was my dads old 1975 XT 500 Yamaha . Still all original and except the one time I rode it only been ridden by two guys over 70 years old so lightly used . Wife bought it for me from my sister .

    My wife bought me a $230 designer leather purse and a $300 pair of designer boots. Neither were my style but as luck would have it they were perfect for her so no exchange needed.

    I got her a Lee Quick Trim, a Quick Trim Power Adapter, a couple of hard-to-find Quick Trim Dies and a Black & Decker PD 600 in-line Cordless Screwdriver. She said she didn't have a use for any of it but if I wanted it I could have it.

    Worked out well for both of us.

    And we flew our youngest daughter in for Christmas. That was the best present.

    Always wanted one.
    Now I'll sell the ARC welder because this one can do both.
