I got the new AB&GC Mag and read about this Turtle Wimsey. I thought it was to cool so I am sharing it for the people who do not get the publication.



I love that thing. I wish I dug it [:D]


Here is the link to my website I put it on there. "with permission"

The turtle story was a good one, the whole issue was pretty good this month. Nice Steve, I remember when you first posted about these, before then I would have figured them as some sort of glass dogs made in Mexico...[;)]

That turtle is something else. Makes me wish McKearin's books had been printed in color...

Thanks for the Turtle Tale, Rick,

Great focus on that Free Trade & Sailors Rights history, too.

I was going to mention the turtle but didn't want to ruin it for anyone that hadn't gotten their mag yet...I agree with you all...Super good issue of this mag.

How could you ruin it? just read it twice I already did [8D]

I have a story going in next issue. I forgot all about it,I wrote it last year. "Privy paradise" but it is in "Bottles & Extras"
