    Reminded of the great Peter Ustinov's reply to his prospective commanding officer during the War:

    "Tell me, why do you want to join the Tank Corps?"

    (pause)

    "I've always wanted to go into battle sitting down."

    Not today. Wife was going through an old shoe box of photos. Found this one. The little girl, our daughter, is now 40. If you look close, that watch I have on is my Omega Seamaster XVI. Still have it.

    Started the day in 2011....

    ....and ended up in 1962. Finally found a Hirsch calfskin to complete the birth-year vibe. I recently purchased this from Norman and could not be more pleased. F92201DB-F22E-484C-A084-0CC12217364F.jpeg
