Flippin' 'eck. It's arrived. My first meer! It's got a few dings and the stem's bitten up a bit. There's some paper in the stem acting as a spacer, else the stem twists too far. And there's a fair bit of oxidation on the stem. BUT I DON'T CARE. IT'S MINE AND IT'S BEAUTIFUL. Can not wait until the impending rain clouds pass and I can get out and have a smoke.
