In between champagne, wine, appetizers, wine, dinner, and wine, the lovely opened gifts–none of which were corkscrews. And, we talked a great deal about our next adventures, where a new position for me will be taking us, and what her retirement will bring–I am thinking she will become the foremost authority on syroco corkscrews, but I gather she is leaning in another direction. : ) It was a great night!
Speaking of corkscrews, I had a snipe set to go off last night, and it did go off. Unfortunately, I was the underbidder on this…!
Oh well, maybe next time!
