Ferd gets a New Trophy!

Elizabeth created this photograph in Photoshop as a joke for Jeff Wichmann, owner of American Bottle Auctions, who posted a similar altered image of me holding my new Bryant’s Bitters cone. We jokingly spoofed the FOHBC and stated we wanted to start a new hobby group called the Federation of Hysterical Bottle Collector Heads (FOHBCH).
