Sorry it took so long but I had to convert pics to 800x600. So the bag came when I opened it no box only a dust bag. I called LV Garden City and told them I ordered for a birthday and the packaging by the other store was unacceptable. They were very courteous and said to bring in the bag and they would dress it up in a President box. So I drove over to Roosevelt field and they quickly took care of it. I then rushed home loaded up the family. And we went to Outback. My two daughters love the new jingle. Lets sit back and unwind..... We're going outback tonite..... After we were all seated, I snuck back out to give the hostess the box and asked her to bring it in as a delivery . First I gave her flowers with geraniums a subtle hint don't you think. When the package arrived she was surprised, Now you know why I chose outback. You can't find a bigger knife in any restaurant. After struggling with the string for several minutes she decided to slide it off. At this point the whole restuarant was in on it and the place erupted in applause. I had a 50mm lens on my camera so the photos were not coming out as I wanted so these last photos were taken when we got home. Back to Reality, I have to pay the bill in a few weeks.
