    Some people find it neccessary to keep track of time throught out thier days, and lives.

    Im one of those people.

    Im still up in the air on the digital reading. Its instant and takes no calculation, albeit minor, to know the time but when it came time to pay my hired help yesterday, who told me he worked from 9 to 4 my butyl soaked brain had to count fingers rather than hour markers..


    Will I take it off the first time the 370 needs a colonoscopy?


    Probably not.

    my truck has a clock...and if it breaks, I have a CB radio too, so I can always ask for a 10-36
    (told you I'm redneck hillbilly fo-reel, Mary,)

    and my fone has a clock ....AND calculat'r
    TOO...I bet that siri chic can tell me what time it is in Yugoslavia too!!!:cool:



    watches, chains/jewelry, hats and underwear aggravate me to wear ....period
    and especially watches and underwear
    Only jewelry was wedding band .... til it got hung 'n yanked hard enough to hurt like hell, enough times (and smashed on once) in a few years to know serious accident potential was a real risk for me...been in the sock drawer ever since

    Only wear aggravating things for "mission specific" needs/wants
    Hats for fishing or sun in eyes ball games or warmth
    Watch when working in shops to get instant/fast/easy to the seconds time

    and underwear ...only when Joni dresses me for formal events ....
    (she'll pretend she doesn't know me if I dress myself)

    Mission specific jewelry when I was cruising chics

    chics dig disco medallions

    I don't consider watches Jewelry. However I consider gold chains and pinky rings car salesmen gear. Tacky as hell. A watch is a tool. Not a fashion statement. My mom used to tell me, "Never trust a man wearing a pinky ring or that winks at you". I also think that men that wear designer jeans are a little light in the loafers. Yeah, I said it. Don't even get me started on the whole Ed Hardy shirts!

    I wear watches for the tool like use. I wear them out of appreciation for the history and workmanship. It amazes how all that micro gearing can keep a constant accurate time while dealing with the abuse and forces of everyday life.

    I am anything but fashionable, unless you consider my $29 Big-5 shoes. I'm ahead of my time there.

    When we get hit with an EMP device, guess who you'll be running to for the accurate time....This guy with the automatic watch that's driving around in his 1985 El Camino :)

    and I told you you're wrong....

    time is real and quantifiable
    Watch, sundial, moon, sun and stars are tools used for such
