the girl ran, and a couple of corkscrews

The lovely finished the half marathon yesterday with a flourish, passing several other runners in the process while posting a best ever half time of 2:16:00. Over 3 minutes faster than her half a few weeks ago. Yea Girl!

After a bite to eat, and requisite shower, we headed up the coast for a little antiquing. Nothing really major was found, with the exception of a nice little English corkscrew with twisted shank.

However, whilst we were out to dinner last night, a snipe bid came through on a lot that must have slipped through eBay’s cracks. It ended up with me being the only bidder…

The lot featured four corkscrews, and one of them a Murphy button–signed. The other nice corkscrew in the lot was a LB PARIS signed wooden handle with frame.

Not that I am complaining that I got it for a single bid, but it does boggle the mind how corkscrews slip through unnoticed.
