A photo addendum to a recent post...

For those of you who read this blog on a regular basis you might recall my recent mention about a flimsy corkscrew which I fought the winter elements to purchase.

Here is the photo evidence of it's craptastic-ness

See that shard of metal unceremoniously protruding from the top of the cork? Yep, thats the coil which BROKE OFF during it's second attempt at opening a bottle.  Thankfully Jürgen had his wine key on him and we were able to enjoy our vino, with Neill, as we did some final Christmas wrapping and baking.

Is the universe trying to keep me from drinking?

Oh yes, and a very Merry Christmas to all.  Stories and photos are forthcoming.


  1. Blair, I will think of you every time I attempt to open a bottle of wine :-) I hope your mom told you of our attempts while in Chicago! We Humes hope the Robertson/O'Bannon/Hooper family had a wonderful Christmas!

  2. BLAIR AND JURGEN!!! Exactly 19 minutes from now will begin your ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!! Congratulations!! I can't believe it has already been one year since we were all in Chicago partying it up at your fun wedding :-). Hope you and awesome Jurgen have fun tomorrow...we'll be thinking of you!!! Happy Anniversary!
