What did you get your wife for Mother's Day?

What did you get your wife for Mother's day? I told mine I'd take her anywhere she wanted for some shopping. She picked Cabella's. She got some ammo, a new camo baseball cap, a new holster for her Glock 23 and some targets.

God I'm lucky.

I learned along time ago, never buy them things they can harm you with.

My kids got my wife some clothes and a couple of Resturant gift cards. I didn't get her anything, she's not my mother.

The kids and I cleaned her minivan that they ride in. Both the kids and I uttered the word "Ewwww!" on numerous occasions during the process.

We also folded a mountain of laundry that had accumulated over the last week.

I treated my wife to a day off. I prepared a nice meal for 9 and did all the work, including the dishes. In a few minutes she is going to want a back rub.

Got our bar room painted, window treatments done and cooked dinner. Kids and grand kids all got her cool stuff. She had a good day.

Remember men, Father's Day is coming. Momma knows who's naughty and nice.

Took her to a garden center yesterday where she picked up a couple of ferns and a hanging impatien. Then I attached a couple of screw hooks in the front of the house and a ornamental bracket in the rear. We resided the house last year with all new soffits/facia so the old brackets/hooks are long gone.

She had to work (retail) today so the 3 of us treated her out to her favorite Mexican restaurant. They gave her a pink rose after dinner.

Called my elderly mother in Oregon and had both grandkids talk to her. She'll be 84 this fall.

My wife went on a 3 hour road bike ride while took our 3 year old for a river float.

She commented on how glad she was to be riding with a girlfriend on a beautiful day rather than being stuck at some "mothers day" brunch.

For dinner, I cooked of course and we had double chocolate ice cream and strawberries for desert.

50 Shades of Grey trilogy. I'm hoping I get some of the "benefits".

She also got breakfast in bed and Chinese for supper.

In chronological order:
  • Fixed the squealing belt on her car (finally).
  • Roses and a greeting card.
  • Breakfast, pancakes and eggs, not in bed.
  • Two hours of horseback riding (mostly her hobby and favorite thing in the world).
  • A Corona with a lime on the front lawn - she never had one (she's not a beer drinker) - "Hey that's good!" (The lawn did not turn into a tropical beach )
  • Filet Mignon smothered with mushrooms for dinner.
Oh, and nothing left for her to clean up.

I tried that "She's not my mother" thing - didn't fly

She's been shopping for an equine buddy for months and it just kinda happened yesterday. The timing couldn't have been better though.

mw (knows it's time to go shopping for a .223)
