a couple of lots
Sniped out of a Snappy by Bull
Snipe Snipe Snipe
This morning I awoke to several emails announcing my wins. Of course, I always look to see who was the underbidder, so I will know who will be mad at me later.
So…apologies to Chris and Don. As the old addage says, "All is fair in love and corkscrews…"
the corkscrew gods show a little love
I punched up a search, and an interesting corkscrew had been added. It is marked FOREIGN and features a four finger direct pull type handle, but is attached to a set of lazy tongs. I snapped it up for the 20 bucks that was asked, knowing that I had seen a similar one before—then, I went back to reading.
Over coffee this morning, I perused Don Bull’s book, and he pictures the same one except its GERMANY instead of FOREIGN. Still, it is a nice piece, for a great price.
It is nice to know that the corkscrew gods are willing to throw a little love my way.
