Re: Looking for versions of Anverdi's Enchanted Ring

I am reviving this thread because I am still looking for any and all versions of the Anverdi Enchanted Ring.

If you have one or more of them for sale or trade, please PM me. I would certainly appreciate it! I am attempting to build my collection of these.

Re: Choosing a wallet

Is anyone familiar with the Leathercraft brand 5” by 3 1/2” Himber Wallet? If so, can you please evaluate it as far as quality, looks, and ability to be convincing as nothing more than a regular wallet?

I only have use for a standard back pocket size wallet.

Re: Leave the Blindfold Drive to the magicians

Way too many people drive blindfolded all the time these days. They are looking at their cell phone located on their lap. I would prefer they wore a blindfold. At least then, they would be looking straight ahead!
