Great to hear from you Adrian yes the good old days, how its changed now over those years and not always for the best.

I'm still in touch with Caroline, Vanessa (abigsecret), Nancy (Al's better half) and JJ's daughters, Yasmin and Jasmin. Vanessa is now living in Mexico, where her husband works. We are all friends on Facebook.

That's cool. You should ask them to come back and chat every once in a while!

Still here, mostly lurking.
I must admit Iíve fallen out of love with watches lately, or, more accurately, Iím happy where I am and I lost most interest in new stuff.

- Basel is on the way out.

- Many more relatives have been dying and leaving ďRolexesesĒ in their wills.

- Thereís no more menís or womenís watches. Itís all one.

- We canít talk about purses without it getting testy.

- Cologne is now a collectible.

- If you click a link in a DM, your social security number ends up somewhere in Prague and you just wired ĎZevdelniaí $20k for a Timex

Other than that, all good!

That is so great, imo, to keep in touch with some old friends. As we all get older, this is, again, imo..a must..! - So long as the recipients agree to keep in touch. It's a 2x way 'street'. ....

Uncle AJís was a special place, and helped me through a very ruff period. You guys were always there for me. Over 50 pages of ďThings that make Jim Snyder LaughĒ . All of you helped me deal with the hospital stay and 7 months with that thing on my leg.

Hey hey...

Miss the old crew - JJ of course. Safe Trends anyone?

Itís a bit of a different place. All the talk is about no steel sports Rolex available...and waiting lists.

Well...to be fair we still have the occasional ďis it safeĒ threads.

The only blessing is no more ďWhat is the average discount I should expect on a SS SubĒ inquiries.
