A big thank you to Paul for this beautifully restored clock that he so graciously gifted.

It will hold a place of honor in my living room, which shall now be renamed “Paul’s room” cause if he ever stays here, he’ll be on the couch.

So… Eddie, BEO3, wanted to show his appreciation for the clock, not necessary but a very nice gesture. He SAID, he was sending me T-shirts and license plate holders and other memorabilia from the branch of the service that produces the SECOND best fighter pilots in the world, the USAF. He made me promise I would wear them and post pictures. OH… that would have been SO painful… but I agreed. Well, today, I received this box from New York.. figured it was the shirts from Eddie… and braced myself to follow through with my promise. TURNS OUT, it was actually a box of real-New York Bagels! And MAN are they GOOD!!!!!!!!

Many thanks Eddie (Is my room ready?).

You don't know know me that well apparently...

Paul, it was just a small gesture of my appreciation.

There is nothing in this world as good as a NYC bagel!

In my hastily typed reply I see that I have typed the word KNOW twice.

Please excuse the grammatical error, for I am a product of the New York City public educational system.......
