Hit the Bottle!

Photographer Bernie O'Day's impression of bottling a ship bottle



Oh I must go down to the sea again,

Away from pollution and din.

All I need is a small ship

And a bottle to put her in.

Hugh Gorman
Deux Montaine

Cartoon from Playboy Magazine

There is a thin dividing line between notoriety and fame--



If you ever become a guest in

The hand-built house of Ralph Preston,

It'll clog your throttle

To see ships in a bottle

That other stuff would be best in.

Jimmy O'Byrne
