I walked over to the person manning the door, to ask him how much for the prongs, to which he responded (with a whisper) just put it in your pocket and "have a good day." Free!!! Who doesn’t like free antique corkscrews???
And, I still have that Converse, although I have had many others since then–some with advertising. But, there is one version of the Converse I have wanted for some time; the Sterling handled one. Well, as luck (and a healthy snipe) would have it, I have finally acquired one. It won’t arrive until we get back from London, but it will be a nice little homecoming gift just waiting in the p.o. box.
The last few blogless days were spent in Port Clyde with our friends.
And, in a few hours the lovely and I head down to Boston for a day before we head to the airport for London. Corkscrews will be the theme of the next week or so, and probably even for the second week we are there. See you all there!
