The Vintage architect has struck again! Today, when my wife returned from town, she had this package in her pretty paw. All the way from Denmark, via savages, elephants, lions, corrupt politicians, striking government workers and all sorts of African dangers!
I don’t know what to say, such a surprise! Mafe you have a heart of gold! This wonderful fanatic rhykonologist is also unbelievably thoughtful. I once commented on one of his posts about pad saws. What do I get? A beautiful antique pad saw(key hole saw) handle with new blades for cutting wood, steel and plastic. I once mentioned that I smoke a pipe. What do I get? A pipe tool and even a pipe cleaner. I once mentioned that I have a daughter. What do I get? A Danish matchbox filled with little beads and tiny shells for her.
The title of this post refers to a little joke Mafe made with me. He said he would send me a box with things for negotiating with the savages. Ha, ha! He was obviously referring to the days of old when much trading in Africa was done with colorful beads.
Thank you from the bottom of my bushman heart, brother Mads.
