On friday I received two packages from different sources.  One was a Pool Surveyors Compass, made in the mid 1800's by ancestors of mine!  I won the compass at an online auction with the help and guidance of my friend, David Ingram.

The second package was from Dave and contained a Pool Transit in beautiful condition!  He agreed to sell me one that he had in his possession!!

in a most surprising coincidence, Saturday was my 62nd birthday! (SWMBO held the packages until then, lol)

Looks like a great present(s) to me.  Now you can definitely follow in the footsteps of the original surveyor.  Congratulations on your birthday young man.
