    FMP has his profession transcribed as 'Mineral Water Wirer'

    What do you think?

    Some of these transcriptions are rather hit and miss - on the marriage of one of his daughters his profession is 'Musical Water Manufacturer' .... I'll have to get me a bottle of that, it might help with my singing :D

    I think its the wire thingy that secures the cork in place. Like your bottle of Champers. Champagne in Aussie talk.

    Of course, I never thought of that.

    Thank you
