marshall neal patent

There was only a hour to go on an eBay listing that I had missed the entire time it was listed. And, for some reason, I happened to search for openers, and saw what looked to be a Marshall Neal patent. I have always wanted one, and am always flipping bottle openers over hoping to discover a corkscrew.

I placed a fairly substantial snipe and hoped for the best.

The lovely and I went out for a walk with the dog. After our brisk jaunt, I started to make dinner. While I was cooking, I wondered what had happened with the auction, but refrained from checking. And, then this morning the confirmation email came in. WOOHOOOOO!!!!! Finally… a Marshall Neal patent corkscrew will be added to the collection!
