I woke up this morning to a note from Joe and Larry, wishing me a Happy Birthday. I thought ‘Huh…that was pretty nice’. I didn’t realize the Boys lost any sleep over me, but, it was MY birthday. :smiley36:
When I got out to the kitchen there were the wife and kids, coffee poured, big smiles, “open my card first daddy” etc. It was then that my Gorgeous, Gracious, Wonderful wife surprised me with a dive trip to Catalina Island in two weeks. Everything was already taken care of, dives booked, hotel, transportation, even some free time that I could fill with whatever.:smiley20:
She has made a few comments recently about “my little dive buddies on the computer” but isn’t jealousy a wonderful thing when she will ONE UP Scuba Toys this way?:smiley32:

So Joe and Larry, here’s your chance to get even. I’m sure I am going to need some new gear for the trip. Although I heard that some of the folks from the Women’s Issues were going to come over and sing “Happy Birthday” later. It could be a three way competition before long!
:smilie40::smilie40::smilie40:
PS Ellen just got home with a car load of beer. She’s bringing the heat.

Is she trying to get you out of town (and state!) for a couple of weeks, so she can . . . ?

Seriously. Congrats and Happy Birthday!

We tried to get a flight out to come sing happy birthday, but they wanted double miles to book the flight! So I guess we will just have to make you a great deal on your next order instead….

Enjoy your Birthday and Trip!

Your not the first person to ask that question today. When I asked her she said she was in a monogamous relationship.

She wouldn't tell me with who though?

You mean the strippers weren't from you guys? Figured they had to be from Texas with their really big...ahhhh...hats?

And look for that order next week. I think I will need the long weekend to work on my wish list.

Happy Birthday Packrman!

You have a great wife, most couples I see battle over scuba, I can't quite figure out why anyone wouldn't want their spouse to do something that they love! But the trip is over and above:smiley20:.

I really think she just likes me out of the house:smiley36:

So I have Friday and Saturday afternoons and Sunday morning open for more diving. What do I NEED to see?

Great b-day present. Great wife. Life is good.

I've been to Casino Point on Catalina. Very nice little dive. I assume you'll be doing a few boat dives. Who's the dive op?

//if you need a dive buddy, I'm available...even if you are an Okie

NICE...She's definately a keeper. In case you don't know how lucky you are, for my birthday this year I was driving my wife down to Texas to see her mother and then had the joy of bringing her mother back to Missouri to stay for a month (actually, my mother-in-law is pretty cool so not too bad).

Whoa Whoa Whoa 20+ yrs in Oklahoma does not make you an Okie. I am a Born and Bred Cheezhead.

Catalina Divers Supply is the OP. They set up 2 guided shore dives for the 18th, a 2 tank boat dive on the 19th and the flight out Monday afternoon. I think I can easily slide in another dive Friday afternoon, maybe a night dive Sat. and something Sunday morning. Always looking for a dive buddy, let me know.

PS My wife wants to know all about Ivanna

I think the chance to get my mother-in-law underwater would be worth the jail time.

It has been a close race but Ellen is still Number One.

I’m all packed, bags by the door, and not ashamed to say, so excited I am sure I won’t sleep tonight. I feel like a kid the night before Christmas. Everything with this trip has just fallen into place.
First the surprise, then of course I had to have some more gear. Kyle and Rick made sure that I got the Scuba Toys treatment. Carolyn at Catalina Divers Supply has been “Above and Beyond”. Navyhmc and Scubadiver888 have been great help with my dorky newbie questions. Not to be out done, Karl with Sealife promised that he would overnight air my camera so I could carry it on the plane tomorrow. All I need now is someone at American Airlines to make sure my plane takes off at 10:00 with me on it.
I suppose it would be nice if California doesn’t fall off the coast before I get back.

I don’t know, am I asking too much?

Congrats and happy Bday!

I guess it's happy birthday AGAIN...man a year goes by quick.

BTW, my wife refers to the forum as "Scuba Porn".

Oh and did you use the, "Remember what you got me last year" trick?

I did try that trick

What I got was the ST Blackbeards trip for next year:dunno:

Maybe she thought I was spoiled or that too much Scuba Porn was bad for me:smiley36:
