Happy to explain, first I have to say something about my husband, he absolutely adores me and always (almost 30 years now) puts me first. He knows how I love my garden with beautiful flowers everywhere. I saw this small pink granite garden bench, just big enough for two, and the seat is about five or six inches thick. The seat alone weighs 200 pounds and each leg has to be around a 100 pounds. It's quite hefty. So what does my husband tell me, "I want that bench for my birthday", really, even for his own birthday the present he wants is something for me.

Now to the Finger Gardening: I'm not a sun person so I go out with my sun hat and of course a long long cold cold glass of ice tea to sit on my bench. And there's my husband digging/cutting/trimming/raking etc. and dirty just dripping with sweat. I look at all his hard work and with my finger I point and say; "MOVE THAT SHRUB SIX INCHES TO THE LEFT AND THAT ONE YOU JUST PLANTED THERE, NO NO NO MOVE THAT OVER HERE. OH YEAH, NOT TO BE PICKY BUT YOU MISSED A SPOT OVER THERE".

That's my husbands favorite story to tell, doesn't matter if its true or not, he just loves to tell it. For the record its NOT true, he works too hard so I let him enjoy his story. Always seems to make everyone laugh!
Awesome normagene, you have a good man take care of him. My wife does the same thing to me. Hope your back is doing better.

There is some very cool stuff here!

To answer about the .44 Mag. Kick depends on the loads.
When I load for target shooting and want my wife to shoot it, I may have 8 gr powder with a 185 SWC bullet. Very little kick

When I want some boom, I load 11.5 gr powder with 240gr SWC. BOOM!
More than the .357 I fired.

We must not forget about the winter months! Nice sled, I also ride in the winter to keep my mind off those warn summer cruises in the Camaro.
