Off to Vermont for a couple of days…

The lovely personal trainer and I are heading to Vermont for a few days.

So, we will (mostly) be offline; a little rest, relaxation, wine, fishing, antiquing, and exploring the area, and enjoying the fall colors.

If any corkscrews turn up during the trip (or any noteworthy fish are caught) I will report back here (when we return back here).

That said, for those of you wondering how you will fill your days without a picture of a new find, acquisition, or report from ebay, I did manage to procure another American patent corkscrew yesterday.

Well, actually, I didn’t procure it yesterday. It was given to a mailman yesterday, and will soon be arriving on the island.

And, Mr. Jopson’s 1899 patented folding corkscrew will be awaiting our return.
