taking a moment

Well, word has been coming out that our various club meetings have been cancelled; JFO, CCCC, ICCA, and as of today, the upcoming Collectorcorkscrews auction has cancelled the April auction.

Sue and I are practicing social distancing from others as much as possible.

I know, that this is a strange time, and I long for us to return to normalcy.

Although, I doubt that normalcy will be at all normal.

So, given that so many of us are working from home these days, let’s get some corkscrew conversations started.

A couple of years ago, I had readers send in photos of their favorite corkscrews, or their ugliest corkscrew.  How about what is your most wanted corkscrew; your holy grail!

Send in photos, and I will post them here.  You never know, maybe someone has an extra of what you are looking for!

I will post my own tomorrow.  The corkscrew I would love to add to the collection above all others.

Finally, I am thankful for all of you, and I look forward to when social distancing is no longer the norm, and we can return to social embracing.

Stay safe, and hunt for corkscrews!

  1. Needless to say my Holy Grail is an Adelaide corkscrew. Any that I don’t have is a good start. I’m currently trying again on the BUYNOW section of the ColectorCorkscrews.com site;

    I’ve had a few nibbles.

    I don’t know what I don’t have ….. I’m particularly after any I can reasonably date to pre 1850

    For known Adelaides, I’d like one marked Will & Fink. Next time I see one I’ll pay up….
