Probably got my presents already. A WalMart gift card from my folks, and my son home for the holidays. He took his sister and me to the range yesterday and rented us an M14 SoComm and a 357 revolver so we could burn a few rounds. My daughter is a pretty good shot....

Found out what was in the trunk.

Wife decided that we needed to load up some stuff, so the trunk had to be emptied of my presents.

8 gal air compressor, a 2.5 ton floor jack and a pair of jack stands.


Just to be a jerk, I asked where the air tools were. She mentioned something about my birthday coming up.

Damn, I bet you were sagging back there in the rear with all that junk in your trunk.

(I only say junk because I wanted to use that phrase).

So far I've gotten a few things including a basic OBDII code scanner, some really nice one-hand click-release Vise Grips (2 pairs), a couple pair of Slates, a new Clairborne dress coat, a can of Sea Foam, some Columbia gloves, and I'm sure I'll get a couple more yet considering Angie and I are exchanging our gifts when she get'* back to school in January.
I really like what I'm giving too and will definitely like the response of the ones who haven't recieved theirs -some custom made wood wine-bottle cases with Carlos Creek Winery emblazed in them, along with with 6 bottles of wine in each (Syrah, Cabernet Savignon, Reserve Cabernet Savignon, Merlot, Chianti, Riesling), a 12V 18AH battery for my nephews Peg Perego Gator to convert it to 24v, an electric guitar and keyboard for the same nephew, a few single bottles of wine, a hammer and tape measure.
As for Angie'* gifts I am giving her a 30G Zune, a gift card to her favorite ladies shop.
