not really

just another house of worship, NYSE
I’m surprised it isn’t bathed in green.

No, I’m actually not.

time for a fresh start, part 2012

Never been a Rolex kinda guy.
My sportswatch has been rock and ice climbing, motorcycle racing at Pocono, summer caving and winter camping, places you wouldn’t believe.

I’ve worn business timepieces, too, but never liked them.

Spent time with both of these.

Loved this MTA subway watch so much I wore out two of them. Then cobbled together a “third” from salvagable parts.

Nothing replaces a genuine antique.
But these sidewalk Casio’s are still the one.
