    WOW, that is an interesting pick. I would like to see that.

    It seems the auction link is still up:

    Looks like a great catch. But well, I love maps.

    Yeah, it's really cool and in really good condition. I now have to pay a couple hundred bucks to get it framed right.

    That auction has some pretty cool items.

    I had little haul to speak of this Christmas as I'd pretty much already bought myself what I'd wanted. I hadn't yet unwrapped the 2nd Kate Bush box, so I threw that under the tree so I could pretend it was from my wife. She gave me a couple of nice things, just not music related. I gave her a Shirley Jackson biography she'd been wanting, and a collection of Shirley Jackson novels and short stories.

    My kids got most of what they wanted, so all is copacetic.

    I got some nice stuff. A Fitbit and headphones.
    My daughter bought me a couple of Sabbath discs; Dehumanizer and Mob Rules and Amorphis - Queen of Time. Also received the latest Kamelot CD.
    Went out today and picked up the new Greta van Fleet and Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.

    Besides some stocking stuffers like candy and underwear, she-who-must-be-obeyed and the kids got me some cider and stouts. Brother-in-law in Germany sent some limoncello, pastry, and a nutcracker figurine. After Thanksgiving she-etc. sends me on a record-buying run to get myself items that she'll wrap and put under the tree, as she doesn't know what I have or want. By Christmas I forget what I bought a month earlier, so it's sort of a surprise. This year got a Gram Parson's tribute on DVD including the ubiquitous Keith Richards, a Groundhogs set on DVD, a Brian Wilson/SMiLE on DVD, and few CDS by Charlie Louvin, steel-player JD Maness, X-Ray Spex, and the Burrito Bros. My daughter and her boy friend found some pre-Code movie box sets and a couple Roscoe Arbuckle silent sets for me. Good haul, but the best part was having my son home for good after spending 5.5 years working overseas. His first Christmas home with us in years.

    The wife spoiled me again this year with the Novalis Schmetterlinge 16-disc boxed set as well as the complete Are You Being Served? 14-DVD collection. Great choices! In my stocking also was the latest PROG mag (that's nice because I've let my subscription lapse) and a nice bottle of Amarone to enjoy while I flip through it. It was a lovely day!

    I got next to nothing, because that was my request after spending money on an antique map earlier in the year and then ordering over $600.00 of custom framing for that and three other antique prints.

    But, I did get a few things, including the deluxe edition of Marvin Gaye's "What's Goin' On?" and some deep-dish pizza pans.

    My in laws asked me what I wanted for Christmas, so I sent them an amazon link to a book of letters and journal entries by a girl who died in a concentration camp - it's supposed to be uplifting, which I believe. But they totally ignored it and sent me, from Amazon, a Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock & Roll. LOL!
