Deviled Egg accessories

Yesterday I made deviled eggs for some guests. I don't have a tray for holding eggs, so I just cut off some of the bottom so they laid flat. The cutting was imprecise, but worked well.

Still, I'd like to have a deviled egg tray eventually. Here are some options:

Vintage Japanese:

Fiesta egg tray:

Canonsburg Temporama egg plate:

Lovely teak:

I love the Canonsburg Temporama one, and I'd love a Franciscan Oasis one more, but I'd have to hunt for the first and the second doesn't even exist.

Telephone anachronisms

It's even more jarring now than 20 years ago to have the phone banged down on the receiver (in this recent case, it was due to callousness rather than ire). It hadn't occurred to me that nearly every telephone conversation I have is ended by software, whether functioning or malfunctioning.
