Thanks John. I will have to be careful with this one. I can't hardly tell it's in my pocket.

Ahh, Alox. There's an inexplicable draw there that I have a difficult time resisting. Congrat's Smitty.

I've always related myself to a Magpie. They're related to Crows. A Parliament of Magpies. A Murder of Crows.

But I just found out I've been wrong all these years.
Wikipedia:
"Magpies do not steal trinkets and are positively scared of shiny objects, according to new research. The study appears to refute the myth of the “thieving magpie”, which pervades European folklore. It is widely believed that magpies have a compulsive urge to steal sparkly things for their nests."

I have green, red, blue, orange and a few silver Alox (Pioneer & Farmer). Looks like I'm going to have to get black next month. (I'm so sick. ::facepalm:: )
