Thats our Bluenoser! Cryptic post with a barely understandable backstory!...

Lets call it!... Based upon pictoral extrapolatory evidence, thats at a minimum a 14k +12 grammer!........
(probably more like 15 based upon the funny money coin for size reference, we dont know if thats a Loonie or a Toonie)...


In 'Noser terms, its not quite a moss rock narwhal tusk, but its no widgeon sphincter either....pretty much an off the shelf 14k Jonsrud fly wheel clutch cantilever counterbalance grommet stub!... Lord Love a Diving Duck!

Thats some succulent frommage Me Bouy!...
