Well, we had about an hour to kill before we went to dinner to celebrate our 40th anniversary. She had never been in a Woodcraft store before, so it seemed appropriate to me. After all, life is just a journey, new discoveries, etc.

Then, after dinner I presented her with the keys to her new wood fence I have been building around the back yard for the last month. What? You think I’m a cheap skate? Hey, I gave her the keys to her new Ford Expedition last week. This was just the icing on the cake; so to speak.

How did you manage to hide the fact that you were building a fence for her? Or was this not a surprise gift?

She knew I was working on it, just didn’t know it was done.
