    Playing catch-up today.

    Working my way through WRUW and into a glorious September of watch photos and whatever else Forum folk choose to share here. Wearing the Speedmaster on the honors system for I haven't taken a photograph of it today. We were off to a Labor Day weekend/Mrs. noelekal birthday trip to see the granddaughters in Nashville, a journey which extended into the first week of the month and included much of the South, as far east as Georgia. Returned to care for aged infirm parents, my mother being hospitalized for most of the next week.

    Both sons and families were present for Nana's birthday and all were taken to Chattanooga for a day trip on one of the Tennessee Valley Railroad lines. https://www.tvrail.com/

    Eldest granddaughter watching a train arrive.

    Breitling SuperOcean on a Hershey rubber strap today, nice because it’s only 42mm. The 44mm plus versions are not for me!

    And here is the “before” image of the Gruen. Not bad, but very much better now, I’d say! Glad to help.
