    Re: Found sextant at local curiosity shop...

    I made a joke about using Thomas K's very fine Plath sextant to find his house. That was the picture that I posted with a "K" on the porch --the front of his actual house in California. No one asked, so I'lll explain "for the record". In his photos of his sextant, there was a plainly visible check made out to Thomas with his exact home address. That could pose issues by itself, and there were other details which I felt might be a little dangerous in a public message. Con artists love that sort of thing. So I blurred out those portions of the photos immediately after they were posted. But that's how I knew his street address. No magic navigation! :)
