Dana went out for a few errands – newspaper, milk and that type of thing. It was all a short walk from home.
She came back about 15 minutes later and proudly proclaimed `I got you a gift!` It was too cold for ice cream today so I wasn`t sure what was left (the 24-karat tennis bracelet I`ve been dreaming about is at least a 20 minute walk away…laugh).
She proudly held a piece of red metal above her head – after briefly fearing for her fingers, I got most excited:
An interesting new store has opened in our neighborhood (where you can find the odd treasure – the owner claims to be a “Captain” with “the best booty around”) that’s basically a mix between trashy flea market and pretentious upscale furniture gallery. Leave it to Dana to find (and recognize) a beer capping machine. It really is a lot of fun.
I love to think about it’s history. Who used it? What did they make? Who did they share it with?
At any rate, for $15 we now have the first piece of our mini-micro-brewery!
It’s a very exciting day for me so you’ll have to pardon the pun in the title of the post.
