    Surprise for wife's 40th Wedding Anniversary

    Well, this past Saturday marks our 40th wedding anniversary, been together 43 years now altogether, and the wife had a few days to spend with Church activities, so I was a little sneaky behind her back.
    She wasn't scheduled or occupied for anything yesterday and I talked her into "taking a ride to Lowes" with me.
    We drove past Lowes, and she says you missed your turn".
    I told her since I was already up that way might as well check on something else real quick.
    There's a motorcycle sales place I pulled into (knowing I could whip around back and head right back to the exit we came in), she's giving me the "EVIL EYE" all the time on the motorcycle lot, lol.
    Pulled in next door at the Nissan car dealership, parked the car, told her I'd be right back out.
    The salesman I dealt with Saturday comes pulling up next to our car, gets out with keys in his hand, knocks on her window and she rolls it down.
    He hands her the keys to the car he just got out of and says "Congratulations on your belated 40th wedding anniversary, here's your new car".
    Meanwhile, I'm inside the showroom watching it all take place. She started crying with happiness when I came out grinning ear to ear.
    Bought her a new 2015 Nissan Versa Note Hatchback, inline 4-cylinder, 4-door, AM/FM/CD, Cruise control and A/C.
    Haven't had time to take any personal pics, as it's been raining here yesterday, today, and tomorrow, but, here's an exact pic of what it looks like. The color is called "Metallic Peacock", although it looks "Aqua" to me.

    Congratulations. Great idea, and a fitting tribute a loyal partner. You might think about what you're doing for an encore...we're sneaking up on our 52nd; your 50th will be here before you know it.

    Very nice... on our 25th anniv (I thought) asked my SIL to give me a price on a 3/4 carat ,since he was manager of a jewelry store. Wife finds a ring she like everyone is happy. I'm standing and my wife had been setting trying on these rings. So she stands up and gives me a big kiss and informs me I can do it again next year on our 25th wedding annv.

    good work Bill. I thought you were going to say you bought her a new Harley! I was leaning towards a Gator or a new Stihl chainsaw for the wife on the next anniversary. I think she might want me to get her some forks for the 2320 though?
