    I started reading this book that was written in 2014 by the author of the web series xkcd. One of the chapters was about the feasibility (written tongue-in-cheek, of course) of social distancing to eradicate the common cold. How fitting that I should be reading it while sitting at home on a beautiful Saturday afternoon because we’ve all be ordered to practice social distancing.

    Great reminder :thumbsup:

    Only took a minute to find my copy. Also found "Shunt" (biography of James Hunt) and the history of the school I went to as a teen (only the first 400 years), neither of them read yet. So I'm set for a while ::book::

    Looks like I did my 2 mile walk in about 32 mins and 52 seconds. I was going to do a "Vintage on a Budget" weekend in honor of @Omega1, but then decided I would wear this to time the walk and now, after months if ignoring it, of almost regretting I bought a quartz watch, I am falling in love with it again. The dial is beautiful and I love it when paired with the BoR bracelet. I guess I am just lucky Dennis isn't here to call me out, shouting, "Quartz!" LOL. Maybe tomorrow I will post my 3 favorite VoaB watches, that I have a combined $18.50 U.S. invested in them. All vintage, all mechanical. Yeah, that is my attempt at drumming up a little anticipation.......like my crumbs could interest you officianados. ::facepalm1::

    She has also had the foresight to set it to 5 o'clock permanently, thus a tacit permission to have a drink whenever you like ;)

    My old man's moonphase speedy... which somehow he decided he wanted to gift me today for my birthday because I would wear it more often than him :eek:

    I told him that we would take turns wearing it :thumbsup:

    Some "old gold," solid14kt Longines yellow gold that is, with the rattiest Saturday chores shirt of them all. Love the numeral markers on this one. Don't you think the water snake strap sets off the frayed sleeves?
