BEST SIX FOR 2001
Dear Fellow Addict,
The events of September 11th have changed our plans. Prior to the terrorists attacks in New York and Washington Watcharee and I had planned to be in Florida for this year's ICCA AGM. I would have also used that occasion to properly photograph and hand-distribute my Best Six for 2001.
As all of the items that I want to use in my 2001 Best Six selection are currently lying in drawers in Florida ... while I am here in Bangkok ... the photograph that I am sending out is actually an 'inventory' photograph1: one that was taken just to record some of the items that I purchased during the last year.
Five of the six items that I want to 'highlight' out of this photograph are Italian; one is Swedish. The 'extra' pieces in this shot are accidental companions who found their way into the picture just because they were picked up at about the same time. (Only the little 'bottle' just above Popeye's head and the cherub piece are corkscrews that don't have duplicates in my manger.)
First, the Italian ones (using Italian descriptions in CAVATAPPI):
Now, to the Swedish one (using the English description from Don Bull's THE ULTIMATE CORKSCREW BOOK):
Watcharee and I wish all of you good hunting and good health.
