As many of you know, I have been on a bit of a hiatus – as I have been prepping to move from Central Missouri to the Greater Richmond Virginia area.
Its been a long and drawn out process – but that particular chapter closed late this week when James and I finally arrived.
Needless to say, there was much rejoicing.
Smokes and Booze had a new home – one with a bar built in.
So – what would be the first thing reviewed?
Interestingly – it won’t be an alcoholic beverage, but a tool.
You see, our household goods haven’t caught up yet…and, although my lovely wife had stocked the bar…we didn’t have a bottle opener.
Now, I have always been a resourceful cuss – but, I didnt want to damage furniture by slamming bottles open, and there were no 3-drawer chests available (my Army friends will get that reference). Luckily, some time ago – SOMEONE had sent me a pair of sunglasses.
I figured them to be a gag-gift, so into the box of beer stuff they went……until today.
Needless to say, these things came in Damn Handy and I was impressed that they opened over a 6-pack without showing any signs of wear. Again, they are not stylish….but we are talking Bottle Opener Sunglasses here – not Gucci.
At $9.95 a pair HERE on Amazon – if you are Survivalist, Fisherman or just looking for something for Dad…you can’t go wrong.
I wish I could remember who it was that sent them to me (drop me an Email if it was you), because they became worth their weight in gold today.
Cheers – and look out RVa.
