The lovely bride has been planning a b-day trip for some time, and in a couple of hours we will be heading off island for a Josef’s-Birthday-Adventure! What is really fun about this, is she has kept the entire thing a secret, and I have no idea where we are headed. She is pretty amazing.
I will report on the birthday-extravaganza when we return on Tuesday.
On a corkscrew note, since Tommy and I were hanging out together, and since we had both found corkscrews, why not trade. So, Tommy grabbed the plain Sterling roundlet that I picked up on day one of Brimfield, a Decapitator advertising Clough, and another corkscrew that I can’t remember, and in exchange I took his cracked, tarnished, rusty, and pitted Mumford : )
After getting ready for the upcoming trip, I had a few minutes to spare, so I decided to give the Mumford a little cleaning to make it a little more appealing. And, it is pretty nicely marked:
And, um… apparently isn’t cracked after all : )
It could still use a little more tender loving care, but it is beginning to clean up nicely.
Now, it is time to finish packing, and then head off to the boat.
