Caption Competition - Win a signed copy of of "The Decanter: Ancient to Modern"

§

COMPETITION TIME: AN ACTUAL REAL LIVING, BREATHING EXPERT IN OUR MIDST !
 
Fortunately – and largely in order to balance my own shortcomings – we are able to number a few genuine experts amongst our friends, and one of the foremost of these is Andy McConnell – perhaps better known as The Decanter Man. Here he is
 
Andy has spent several years updating and enlarging upon his already definitive book “The Decanter: Ancient to Modern”, and we are singularly honoured to have been asked to provide images for use during its compilation and which were included in the final edition.
 
It’s quite a coup for us to have been sought to offer assistance to the acknowledged jedi master of decanters, and we are celebrating our involvement by offering a copy of the epic tome to the winner of our competition.
 
All we’re looking for is the wittiest caption for any of the attached images of the guru himself. We like the in pensive mood, contemplating something far beyond the ken of mere mortals; tell us what has captured his interest within a dozen or so words, and whoever is deemed to have best captured the moment will secure a copy of Andy’s marvellous new book. He will sign and dedicate this for you

We’ll announce the winner in good time for them to receive their prize before Christmas, so you’ve got a few weeks to come up with something.
 
Entries via DM, or e-mail to
to editorial@scottishantiques.com, we will add the best here.
