The eCrater Stores Network has provided “swimming” for this week’s blogging theme. And, what an appropriate theme it is. I went swimming for the first time this year yesterday. The lakes here in Northern Minnesota don’t warm up real fast so it was a bit chilly. But refreshing it was, considering that the temperature was in the 90s and the humidity was right up there too.
Ducks are, of course, good swimmers and I frequently see them swimming around in the shallows bays connected to the lake. I have a cute little duck figurine for sale in my curios shop. It is a high density resin molded around a metal plate. It is quite cute. But here is the curios part, if you turn it over you will find that it is actually a bottle opener. You gotta admit that’s cool. Bottle caps are usually twist off these days so you know this is probably a vintage item. Check out Sirocco's Curios.
