My taxidermist has great timing and got last yearís cat back to me today - I either take this inside and hope the other half doesnít notice when she comes home or lock it up in the shed for a couple of days. Not sure if chocolate and flowers will balance it out..

You could stick a bow on it and say something like, "Dear remember when you told me that was a beautiful bobcat that I caught? Well you're hard to shop for and I thought you might appreciate this, so Happy Valentine's Day my love."

Abort abort lol. That would probably end up like the time I bought my wife a vacuum cleaner for her birthday. Even though I had a card and was going to take her out for dinner, it did not go well. I would hide it grin


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Chocolates and flowers and take her out to eat should do the trick.

For the wife I bought a dozen red Rose's and a box of chocolate, and I'm sure I'm providing dinner. I received obscenities and hand gestures.

The daughter got a dozen yellow (her favorite color) Rose's, box of chocolate, and we gave her a gift card. She didn't seem that impressed either.



My advice is burn the cat mount, or hide it for at least 6 months

My wife and I stop doing Valentineís Day. I always have just sent her flowers and cards to her office at spermatic times of the year. This has always gone way farther than the guys that do Valentineís Day. The girls in her office are always commenting about how lucky she is to have valentine day year round. I think it means more when itís not expected.

Put a plaque With her name on the driftwood and say happy Valentines Day dear.

Good luck on all that. I shot a deer Monday night, but only brought back the meat (no taxidermy), and today for Valentines day we drove an hour into Spain and ate at what I call the Temple of Red Meat. Among other dishes we polished off 3 pounds of aged ribeye cooked over oak coals and had some nice Spanish wine.

For anybody who gives a hoot.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJ71mcyvzrI

Your bobcat looks nice but I'd stick it in the shed for a day or two.

I enjoy all your pictures Pete. It looks like an interesting and beautiful area to live.

I bought my wife two pairs of reader last week. I thy told her Happy Valentineís Day. All good. Cooking ribeye tonight. Tell the truth up front, why didnít you talk to her before you had it done. Sometimes guys bring conflict on themselves.

^ ^ She knew I was getting something else mounted, it was just the timing. I took it on in and put it in the game room with all the others figuring it would just blend in - she saw it in about 10 seconds and said "hey, that's a new one, it looks good..". I'm lucky to have her.
