the countdown to the CCCC/ICCA meeting begins!!!

It is only 4 days before we arrive in London (5 days before the meetings commence). Corkscrews have been sent, appropriate attire is being packed, and today we are off to the mainland to visit with some friends. And, from what I have been told they have the perfect agenda set for this afternoon–sauv. blanc and lobster and spending most of the day on the boat…

On a corkscrew note, I missed out on the registered crane perfume corkscrew. I did place a fairly substantial snipe, but apparently it wasn’t substantial enough.

I wasn’t even the underbidder. I was the underbidder to the underbidder. Now, I will have Petey to sell me his!!!
