While me and Josef did meet up just days ago in Syracuse, the big news is that I am now visiting him and Sue on Vinalhaven for the week! We’ve already hit up about 5 antique malls, as they are quite abundant in Maine, but no corkscrews yet to be had. No worries though as I know where Josef’s stash is and definitely planning to score a few there.
As luck would have it, on Tuesday’s Ferry boat ride to the island I did happen to score a 18th Century Double Folding pocket corkscrew. LUCKY!! Josef had also seen the same piece, but while he was deep in conversation with a local islander, a BIN was uploaded the the said piece, and SCORE!!
We’ve all enjoyed present company and really enjoyed Chef Boyardee’ Josef’s cooking! It’s great to be with friends and love this peaceful island life! A true vacation! Now back to the corkscrews!
Trade negotiations started up early Wednesday morning. Seeing that Josef’s entire collection was in front of me I could hardly focus on what pieces I really wanted, as there were SO MANY GOODIES! It was a fun game of upping the aunty on each other. I add 2, Josef adds 3!? I take away 1, Josef adds 1!? I swap out 2, Josef adds 1!? How is this fair?!
After a while we finally settled on a trade. Can you guess who got what?
