Thumbs up Coolest Chick Ever

The coolest chick ever, Mary, just bought me a Costa Rica based marlin fishing trip for my next birthday. So, I will turn 60 offshore of Costa Rica chasing marlin on March 6, 2023. This is so substantial for me that I almost forgot to mention the Roosterfish chasing inshore on the 7th.

I have dreamed of catching a marlin since I was in elementary school. Looking at my dad's Outdoor Life and Sports Afield magazines and seeing the pictures of them, and watching them tail walk on TV on Saturday mornings was the coolest thing in the world to me. It was also completely foreign to me. This is something other people do.

So, while I am in no giant hurry to get to my next round number birthday, it is going to be pretty tough to sit still and wait for it. I might oughta start lifting some weights or something to get myself ready!

My wife is the best!

Way Cool ! My wife knows I am a die hard outdoors person and she has never bought me any hunting or fishing trip in over 30 yrs. Some woman get it & some don't. Lucky for you, Mary gets it. I hope you have a blast on your trip.

Good answer. I just opened this thread to how big of a shovel you were digging your hole with.


Now I’d go help start pulling that invasive grass out of the front yard in hopes my 65th birthday is just as nice.

"She wants something."

I'm laughing because this is the same thing my husband says to me when I do something nice for him. Personally, I think he says this because he's doesn't know how to process his overwhelming feelings for me and say, "Thank you. You complete me."
