That is a fantastic story. You never know who or what will turn up on your doorstep. What a great family treasure.

On another note... Either the writer of the article goofed or the collector/author sports BAD ENGLISH. Did anyone else catch these?

I wanted tell you??? Geez!

Sorry it's the teacher inside my head. Sigh!

Did you ever read "Eats Shoots and Leaves"? You might really enjoy that.
