Loyal readers of the “print product” will recall a little ditty I wrote about the Duckbill money clip back in March. I still love that thing. Highly recommended. Well, the guy who engraves the Duckbills (if you so choose) is a man named Ken Brown. He does calligraphic engraving with a dental drill, a process he taught himself. Well, you know who’s a loyal reader of the “print product”? Ken Brown is. After reading this story about how Spider Monkey and I nearly drowned in the Trinity (slight exaggeration), Ken sent over an engraved bottle of wine (pictured). Here’s the poem writ thereon:
A toast to the Trinity/ And surrounding muck./ A toast to the Matrix/ That didn’t get stuck./ A toast to the Monkey,/ While shooting the news,/ With brute force she pushed/ And Tim saved his shoes!
Now all I have to do is drink this thing before Spider Monkey reads this post and demands her share.
