Heh heh!

How do you store them? Loose in a shoebox? In their original packing? In a drawer? In a display case?

Congrats on the largest collection of watches I have ever seen!!!

Twelve are in a case, a couple are in their original boxes, a few are in a drawer, and the rest are scattered about the house.

Such pride!

I've been on vacation all week and feeling generally miserable until today.

It was a labor of love.

On my first day of school, the gyn teacher was squatting down talking to me, trying to convince me to go into the class room. I didn't want to be there for anything. While he was doing this, I saw my mother outside and kicked him square in the gonads. True story. Now when I see him to this day, we still have the upmost respect for one another.
