    Just wanted to mention that today is Jim's birthday.

    He's a fine gentleman of impeccable skill and modesty. It was my pleasure to have met him.

    I don't think he'd mind me sharing this photo of us. Also below is my Speedy and my Fisher Space Pen I've been taking notes with all week in preparation for my IA exam.

    Happy birthday, Jim!

    He's wearing his GMT, I'm wearing my Fortis as I had not yet acquired the speedy at the time.

    We briefly discussed watches, but ended up talking (among other things) about flying.

    Had dinner and a beer even. Was a great time!

    For laymen like like me, what does “IA” mean? Inspection Authorization (of aircrafts)? :thumbsdown:
