    Ask the girl at the tap room what her hubby likes and get him a gift card for Cabelas, Baileys, saw shop, etc.

    If it turns out they like fish it sounds like you could factor that in too.

    What's a tap room?

    Sounds like a case of beer or a bottle on good whiskey would about do it. Maybe gift certificate to a local restaurant.

    I had a tree service guy clearing a lot for a project I was working on. He was upset that he didn't know where to take the wood. When I told him he could take it to my house, 4 miles away, he was delighted. I bought the guys a couple of pizzas at lunchtime, then 2 thirty packs on Friday afternoon. They were delighted. I got like 4 tri-axle loads of Poplar. Not the best wood, but it was (almost) free.

    I thought you were putting down your wife's cat for a second there.

    Good score. I know what you mean- staying in good graces for someone like that. It's good country economics.

    Get him a gift certificate to Illiano's Restaurant in Hammonton... They have the best Italian food!
    Also let me know what night he is going to be there, so I can score some of that free wood!
