New Way to Look at Bottles?

Forbes Blindfolded

Jerry Forbes Practicing for Meyer Visit

As you may know, Elizabeth and I live in Bottle ‘Siberia’ here in Southeast Texas meaning we are off the beaten track for visitors. Wouldn’t you know it, Jerry and Helen Forbes visited us prior to the four of us all driving 10 hours to Memphis for the 2011 FOHBC National Show and Sale. As my schedule could not be changed, the Forbes came in a day early since I was attending a Public Hearing in Winchester, Virginia. Having Jerry in my house and looking at my bottles without me was driving me crazy. He sent me the posted picture from Carmel to allay my fears. It didn’t! He is assuming I would let a blind folded person hold my bottles! Ha!
