Writers comment: These were the first decent bottles I found in Tampa after coming back from the west, and after teaming up with #2 (Bill Godwin of Brandon, FL, a real pain in the neck, but the best worker (Besides me) I ever met). Dude has no off button, once he starts he has to wear down the batteries and the batteries are still pretty good for an old duck. Later on he and I and #3 got into many more good bottles, including case gins and many Hutchies in Ybor City. I still covet the giant hand blown and hand finished 1870s plain aqua long necked water bottle he found one dark night in Downtown Tampa. Thing is killer and perfect, no cracks or chips or even broken bubbles. It was a lone find in an empty city lot across from the old RR station at Tampa City.
