Exclamation ~~~Nice Surprise From Vicki~~~

Vicki, my wife, went all out for my 67th Hatch Day. She had noticed that I had been struggling more than usual lately, so she secretly worked on a project and finished it in time for my 67th year on this earth. When she presented it to me on Thursday, September 3rd, my Hatch Day, I was surprised!



Ever since I married her in 1974, I asked her to not give me a present on my birthdays. A card would suffice, along with a kiss. ( But for her, she loved gifts, so I gave her gifts on her special day).
After a few years, I asked her to add to the card and gift...I wanted her to donate money in an amount we could afford to a charity. She has done this for me for most of the 46 years we have been married.



But this time, number 67...she worked on an art project. Vicki has the same talent as her mother when it comes to painting, drawing, making clothes, etc.. We used to partake in local art shows and sell her paintings. Vicki worked on an 8 by 10 gold etching of two Eagles! One was sitting on clouds and the other was in flight over the clouds! It has a black background so the gold etching would show up better.


Wow! She framed it and when I opened up the etching, I was speechless for the first time in a long time! I think it is one of the most beautiful pieces of art she has ever done! I can see every little scratch in gold. It is amazing!


I am one lucky guy! Bless Her Heart!


David

Vicki and I thank you so much!


As you may know, Vicki has been experiencing kidney stone attacks this past holiday weekend. I took her to the doctor's today and got a referral to a urologist, plus a pain medicine prescription, in case she needs it. She has passed two stones today! Ouch! So, I wait on her hand and foot! She is a great part of me.
