A couple of days ago when I opened the package Jeanne sent I thought at first it was the best birthday present I ever got my entire life. But as I thought on it I remembered the Victorinox Swiss Army Lensatic Compass my ex-wife gave me on my 45th birthday. [Pictured under 'Compass' section of the Survival Book link above]
Okay. There can only be one absolute no-questions-asked-no-prisoners-taken best birthday present a person ever got. The compass ain’t giving up its position of prominence.
But how about them damned spoons? Out there the other side of three-score-and-ten spoons step in and declare themselves.
