We interrupt these updates from the meetings…

While the fun and frivolity continues, about 10 days ago, an unusual patent applied for can opener was listed on eBay.  The opening bid was a little high, but I have been keeping my eyes on it.

It ended yesterday during happy hour–not that we haven’t been having a continuous happy hour during vacation–and as it happened, I was the high bidder.

An interesting piece, and a nice addition to the collection–it should also make John Morris’ new discoveries or patent wannabe  section should he choose to provide an O’Leary update in the near future.

A cool looking corkscrew/can opener that will require some research once it arrives, or rather when I arrive back on the island to pick it up.
