    Just turned fifty years old ten days ago, and got the most beautiful birthday present ever from my companion!
    I do not know how long she has been saving for this one, but I guess I am a lucky man.
    Blaser R8 Selous, 416 Remington magnum, my dream....
    I went to Africa hunting in April, but now have no other choice that book another hunt beofre year's end...

    Happy birthday and congrats on the Blaser. It's nice to have a wife that buys you guns instead of neckties, isn't it...

    Very nice! And yes you are now compelled to book a buffalo hunt at the minimum. However you'd be a perfect clod if you didn't take that wonderful woman with you!!

    Aha!
    That's the plan, she went with me last year for elephant, even though she is not very keen on hunting... I guess close to a perfect woman, and beautiful by the way!!!
    I guess I must have been good in a previous life to have such a good karma...
