    Picked up four covers signed by Jim Lovell this morning (Aussie time) from Heritage Auctions.

    I'm trying to build a collection of astronaut signed covers with the Carl Swanson / Spacecraft cachets and for some unknown reason Lovell has always eluded me. Then I get three in a day.
    I doubt I'll ever get an Armstrong and the prices of many of the others seem to be leaping too (especially full crew signed pieces) so I doubt that the collection will ever be complete. Still a way behind the popularity of signed photographs it seems though.

    Today's covers came from the Family Collection of Astronaut Richard Gordon. I'd actually missed the news of his passing earlier this week until after the auction. https://omegaforums.net/threads/fair-winds-and-following-seas-captain-gordon.66238/
    So a happy purchase tinged with more than a hint of sadness.

    Hmmmm...PJs.... :rolleyes: ...couldn't you have at least included the hints of a watch in the pic to avoid any over excitement this side of the screen!

    ::psy:: :D

    Very :cool: actually

    Found these in "seller's other items" when I was looking at watches.

    My Blonde loves opals and tells me how to spot good ones, so when I saw this come across the block I decided to pick it up. Plique-a-jour is really well done and the garnets looked ... we'll, off. Those garnets tested as rubies when I got them home. If she behaves, the Blonde might have a new opal come Christmas ... it's hard to catch all the colours but that opal has real fire:

    I have one of those gloves my Nephew found in a old truck. Gives one a medieval feeling.

    Only thing not watch related is a Custom made 4.25 inch Brushed Aluminum breech for my Crosman carbine build.
    These are the master machinist's personal design with two ( one .22 one .177) custom matching over size dia long probe bolts thrown in. very limited production only six made so far. Smoother bolt throw and better projectile pre-engraving.
    Only offered to a select group at this time. Not available outside the group at this time and probably won't be offered at his online store anytime soon if ever.

    He does offer similar stainless steel versions.

    The last of the big spenders ;) decided to upgrade the running lights to led's.
    Audi tell you it is a workshop change only ::censored:: really ? Ok! the light cluster has to be removed but three torx unscrewed and out it comes.
    Forty minutes all in and well worth it.

    Old and new,

    I’m not normally a reissue guy, but I couldn’t pass on this - Sven Libaek’s score to an obscure Australian ‘blue movie’.
