As I already have two, this fabulous friar may be offered to some of my collecting bretheren… Anyone want to make an offer?
And, yes… it is the goodyear patent!
He has promised to pull these out of the boxes and take a couple more pictures, and I will update the blog if anything of note comes of the deal. As you will see in the pictures, he does have a collection of corkscrews–not corkscrews that I really want, but they are indeed corkscrews.
Needless to day, the contractor who is looking for me to pay for his new BMW is not getting the job. Now, it isn’t that I mind being quoted a high price, but 4 times what his peers charge? Insanity!
On a syroco corkscrew/opener note, Tommy sniped a bartender opener this morning, unfortunately his snipe didn’t net out the opener, merely jacked up the price I have to pay for it. Shouldn’t there be some kind of rule, that if you snipe, and it simply raises the price for the other guy, that you should have to pick up part of the tab???
